If you're a first-time home buyer, the kitchen can be intimidating because of all the equipment you'll need to prepare food, bake goods, and host guests. Inexperienced cooks may find the task of putting together a kitchen even more daunting. The installation of your new kitchen should go more smoothly if the lengthy list of tools and equipment is divided into manageable chunks.
Tupperware have designed beginner kits that are suitable for a wide range of people and budgets. It is easier for first-time "on their own" apartment/home occupants and those on a budget to shop for pots and pans and utensils in bulk.
Getting the ingredients ready is a necessary step before you can begin cooking. In addition to knives and cutting boards, measuring spoons and cups are needed for this preparation. Depending on your level of cooking, you'll need a different number of tools and gadgets, but there are a few must-haves. If you're going to bake, you'll need a set of mixing bowls, measuring cups, and spoons. Be sure to get both dry and liquid measuring cups, as using one for one type of ingredient will lead to inaccurate measurements.
A cutting board and a set of knives are also necessary for food preparation. You'll have to pay a little extra for high-quality blades that feel nice in your hands and last, but a sharp knife that you can effortlessly use in the kitchen is essential. You'll also need a variety of sizes and serrated and non-serrated knives, depending on what type of cooking you'll be doing, and how many knives you'll need.
Cutting boards may not appear to differ much from one another at first glance, but there are a few characteristics to keep an eye out for. Choose a plastic or hard-surfaced board with a non-skid surface. Wooden cutting boards are great for bread, but they should not be used to chop raw meats because of their porous nature. They can be more difficult to clean as well. Cooking requires a wide range of kitchen tools, such as peelers for vegetables, can openers, and zesters for citrus fruits. For those who cook frequently, a garlic press, citrus juicer, immersion blender, and salad spinner may be useful additions.
Pots and pans are a need in the kitchen, whether you have a full set or just a few individual pieces. Having a variety of sizes on hand is a good idea, including a 10- or 8-quart stockpot, a 5-quart pot or dutch oven, and a 2- or 1-quart saucepan. Cookware sets in Malaysia can save you time and effort by avoiding the hassle of shopping around for each piece individually. It is essential that you get stainless steel pots that have lids. When it comes to pan material, there are a few options to pick from, including stainless steel and non-stick, depending on your lifestyle and budget. Because our stainless steel cookware in Malaysia is well-made and long-lasting, we recommend purchasing it from us.
When it comes to cooking, a skillet or frying pan is an absolute must. There is nothing wrong with having both an 8- to 10-inch and a 12- to 14-inch pan, as well as at least one non-stick frying pan with a lid. TupperChef Black Series Fry Pan with the glass lid is our top pick.
You'll need a casserole pot if you want to make anything from lasagna to baked mac and cheese to scalloped potatoes. Porcelain, glass, or stoneware should be purchased in a variety of sizes.
A wok is one of the most useful kitchen utensils, whether or not you stir-fry. Because of its big volume and wide form, it is by far the ideal vessel for deep-frying; it can hold a lot of food with minimal contact and oil use and virtually no risk of oil splattering onto the burner (or, worse, overflowing). Smoking, braising, and steaming can all be done in the same pot.
Contrary to popular belief, a skillet does not make a superior vessel for stir-frying on Western stoves. Because of the shape and composition of the stainless steel wok, and the way it distributes heat, a stainless steel wok's stir-fry tastes substantially better than one made in a pan. It's hard to generate the smokey, ‘wok hei’ flavour in any other way except by using a wok.
A pressure cooker from Tupperware Malaysia is an excellent choice if you're looking for both safety and speed. In comparison to the time it takes to prepare a dinner using traditional methods, yours takes only a third of the time. You'll save time and work, but you'll also save money, as cooking will use less energy this way. When it comes to air conditioning bills in the summer and year-round comfort, a well-ventilated kitchen saves you money.
Dishware and Miniature Appliances
Small appliances, such as a microwave and a coffee maker, are usually not included in the price of your new kitchen. A hand or stand mixer and/or blender/processor are all necessary kitchen appliances to own. This includes a microwave if your kitchen does have room for one.
To consume the food you've just made, you'll need some accompaniments. Purchasing a food serving ware set from Tupperware Malaysia and a set of drinking glasses and mugs is a wise investment. It'll be much more convenient if the drawer has a cutlery divider.
Kitchen essentials include everything from oven mitts to garbage cans. Towels, food storage containers, and a dish drying rack or drying pad should all be on your buying list. Last but not least, don't forget to pack cleaning materials such as dishwashing liquid and multipurpose cleanser as well as sponges and rubber gloves.
As soon as you've moved into a new house, the kitchen should be outfitted to meet your demands. The kitchen is the heart of the house, and it's where you can really start to feel at home. Cutlery, bakeware, cookbooks, prepware, potholders, and a chef's knife are some of the most essential kitchen items. Think about making a checklist to make sure you have everything.
