This kitchen gadget may be bulky and come with about a zillion attachments but if you’re cooking frequently, catering for larger numbers or consider yourself a whizz at meal prepping then this will save you plenty of time in the kitchen.

Whether you’re simply whipping up a batch of cupcakes or making a beautiful loaf of bread, a stand mixer will ensure that you’re working efficiently and quickly in the kitchen. When tackling tasks such as Italian meringue, a stand mixer becomes your best friend. Beating egg whites, sugar and butter together in no time at all, all with the flick of a switch.

Digital scales

Others may disagree but we think that cooking and baking is a science! Weighing out your ingredients can be a very crucial step when creating spectacular dishes such as soufflé. Consistency is also key, purchasing a cheap set of traditional scales can give you inconsistent results when cooking – with digital scales you can be sure that you’re achieving cooking perfection every time. Bonus, they’re also much slimmer and easier to store than traditional scales.

Cast iron skillet

A cast iron skillet is considered a must, and is a long-term investment for your cooking. Cast iron is an extremely dense metal, meaning that it holds heat very well and distributes it evenly, ultimately leading to a better cook. A cast iron skillet is also very versatile as you can transfer it from the stove top into the oven, making cooking one pan dishes super easy – brown off your chicken on the hob top and then add your veggies and pop into the oven. A good quality cast iron skillet will last for many years, especially with good care.
