Basic Kitchen Utensils

It’s hard to do a lot in the kitchen without utensils. If you’re a kitchen newbie, moving out on your own, need to replace some of your worn out/broken pieces or simply want to know some of the things that are out there, we’re going to list a ton of them here for you. For one-stop-shopping convenience you can go to a place such as a dollar store or Ikea (has almost everything available for purchase via online shopping).

If you do need to get everything we have listed here in one go, it’ll cost you about $120 (plus taxes, of course).
