Chef’s Knife

I recommend getting a chef’s knife if you don’t have one, since it will help you cook faster and reduce the chances of cutting yourself.

Basic Utensils

What you need most in this set are the Tongs and Spatula. This will help you move the meats & fish without burning yourself.

Cutting Board

I recommend getting a plastic cutting board because you can clean it easily between raw meats and vegetables.

2X Cookie Pans

Cookie Pans are awesome because it allows you to oven grill 10+ pieces of meat or fish at the same time.

2-4 Large Mixing Bowls

Mixing bowls allow you to mix meat and fish with sauce or marinade, but also make your own mix of fresh vegetables. I have at 4 of these in my kitchen.

1X Large Stock Pot

A big stock pot like this allows you to do chili con carne, or any stewed recipe. Even though it’s not made for sautes, I use it all the time for this.

750ml Reusable Containers (Plastic)

These containers are great if you want to save the most amount of money, while still having great containers. Size should be between 3cups (750ml) and 4 cups (1L). Get Snap Lids to avoid spills when you bring meals in your bag.

Reusable container (Glass)

I love glass containers because I can use a mini-oven to warm them up. They’re also easier to clean, more durable, and you don’t risk getting nasty plastic chemicals in your food.

Disposable Containers

If you don’t have a dishwasher and don’t want to clean your containers during the week, you can get these disposable containers. It’s going to end up being a lot more expensive and not eco-friendly, but it can still be the best option for you.

Rice Cooker

If you’re the type of person that can’t handle too many things at once in the kitchen, GET ONE OF THESE. You’ll cook rice so many times, and with this machine you can set it and forget it. Tired of burning your rice, or have it stick at the bottom of the pan? Never again.
