Cool Kitchen and Tableware: 42 Tasty Buys For Cooks

What cook doesn’t enjoy a nice bit of kit? These are the kitchen implements, tools and tableware we think are worth their salt.

A great cook can make something sublime from nothing – fancy tools or no fancy tools. For the rest of us mere yet keen culinary mortals, the kit helps immeasurably. We admit: we are very much persuaded into the kitchen by the allure of shiny tools and trinkets (don’t judge). To that end, we’ve brought together some of our very favourite pieces, from kitchenware to tableware; with these fancy additions, culinary magic must be guaranteed – mustn’t it?
