Food Scale

Food scale is actually a very important kitchen tool. Instead of turning to the usual measuring cups, use a scale to weigh out more precisely. You’ll dirty up less dishes this way which is always a good news! $10-$30.

Knife Set

Same as a food scale, a good set of knives is essential for the home chef. There are traditionally two styles of knives, Eastern and Western. Eastern knives usually have one slanted blade while Western knives have two blades and generally more of a curve. There are also hybrid designs. Don’t forget to include a sharpener too! $50-$150.
