“Cooking requires confident guesswork and improvisation– experimentation and substitution, dealing with failure and uncertainty in a creative way”
Pots and pans are used for a variety of purposes, ranging from cooking, frying and roasting to hitting someone in the face. So, you can say that they are the backbone of any kitchen, whether it is a chef’s or your own. So, if you are new to cooking, I have to tell you, you need to get them. This guide tells you the perfect ones currently in the market at the time of writing. According to the pots and pans reviews by Cook with Tina, I dig right in the vast sea of cookware knowledge ahead!
- A 10-inch Cast Iron Skillet:
A large skillet is the powerhouse and foundation of a perfect kitchen. If you want a pan that can last for a lonnnngggg time in intense heat, then a cast iron one is your pan of choice. It is perfect for roasting beef, cooking pizzas in the oven, searing your favourite steak, or throwing at crazy stalking strangers. Cleaning it, however, will be a little bit hard, and will require lots of willpower and muscle, so if you are a strong guy or girl, or have a fancy dishwasher, go ahead and get one.
- A 3-Quart Saucier:
So, if you got a skillet for your pizza needs, you also need a saucepan. Regular ones are annoying as the sauce generally sticks on the corners. A saucier is the solution for that problem. This equipment was created by a true man of God, as he added rounded edges so that we can whisk and combine the ingredients with ease. The size, that is 3 quarts, is enough for creating sauces for four to six people, but if you have your whole tribe with you, I suggest you get a bigger one, but be sure to get it, cuz’ it’s awesome!
- A 14-inch Wok:
Admit it or not, a wok is one of the best tools in your disposal in the kitchen. It is versatile and is perfect for smoking, braising and roasting, a complete all in one. In case you never saw one, it is deep, wide and can store a large volume of food, and you can even use oil in it without the fear of overflowing. A 14-inch one can cook food for as much as 6-8 people, so this is generally the most recommended, as most families count between 4-6 members.
