Essential Equipment

So you're a little insecure about your equipment.....?

Consider this a shopping list and purchasing guide. At a minimum, you'll need some basic stuff in your kitchen, including some accessories. The old axiom, "buy quality" is never more true, and generally speaking, alot of the equipment at commercial grade isn't as expensive as you think(sometimes even less than department stores). Take a look at this list and of course, use common sense to add, delete, and change to customize to your needs. Your best brands are found mostly at commercial restaurant supply stores and merchants that sell to professional chefs. And remember: don't buy quantity, buy quality. Don't forget, if you simply want to save some money and time, you can just press the "go" button and purchase a Bachelor's Kitchen-in-a-Box Set.
