what you need in your kitchen
On Tuesday\'s morning show, Annette Flores, Williams Test Kitchen manager-
The kitchen supply company Sonoma continues to roll out the \"early essentials\" series and shares all the basic cookware, cutlery, appliances and baking supplies needed for cooking.
Flores said it is important to have the right equipment in the kitchen, because cooking with the right equipment is as important as ingredients.
The necessities of your medicine cabinet \"a good knife can cut the tomatoes without grinding the pulp.
A quality frying pan will bake your meat evenly instead of leaving a burnt hot spot.
A great juicer will penetrate the pulp without tearing it apart, \"she said.
\"Some basic cookware and equipment are the key to success for any chef.
\"Trend news Google cloud downtime missing connadik state mom Virginia Beach shooting protesters interrupted Harris Flores\'s advice when you buy higher quality kitchen equipment.
She also suggested looking for the country of origin as artisans in the United StatesS.
Europe sets standards for quality cookware.
In addition, she said, the quality stainless steel cookware is bonded or cladding from the bottom to the top to ensure the best heat conduction and diffusion.
In addition, she said the cooker should be relatively heavy to help minimize warping.
But to do well, the equipment is not necessarily heavy, she added.
The market is filled with many types of cookware and gadgets, so it can be very difficult to choose the right one, says Flores.
However, high prices do not necessarily mean quality, she said.
\"Most chefs I know have a range of equipment, not only from Professional cookware retailers, but also from restaurants serving stores, ethnic markets, and even hardware stores,\" Flores said . \".
\"The first thing I did when considering the new device was to pick it up and hold it in my hand.
I asked: What is it made?
How about the handle? How heavy (or)light is it?
Flores said: \"Another thing to consider when planning to pay more for a project is to consider the frequency of use of the project.
For items like knives and cookware, it\'s usually worth buying the best you can afford because they\'re always used, she says.
As for cutlery, knives are usually expensive, with prices ranging between $50 and $300, Flores said.
Flores suggested holding the knife in his hand to see how it fits.
\"It should feel a little heavy in your hands,\" she said . \".
Flores added that the blade should have a full soup-
A continuous piece of metal from the tip of the blade to the knife hand.
To test the sharpness of the knife, you can always throw a piece of paper, she says.
You should grind your knife every six months to a year, says Flores. Some high-
Terminal retailers will provide sharpening services, she said.
