Best Santoku Knife

A favourite among the Jamie Oliver food team, the Japanese santoku knife is super efficient and great for slicing and chopping. Santoku knives have a flat edge and sheepsfoot blade.

I can vouch for Kohetsu. It's a work horse and stays sharp. But you have to do some work to get there. You get AS co...

Best Saute Pan

The difference between a sauté pan and a skillet all comes down to shape. A sauté pan, from the French verb meaning "to jump", has a wide, flat bottom and vertical sides. A skillet, on the other hand, has sides that flare outward at an angle.

Again, the straight sides of a sauté pan allow you to f...

Best Baking Sheets

I've been buying things like this from a restaurant supply store. All of my crappy sheet pans that would warp and buckle in the oven have been replaced with professional grade half sheet pans and I'll never look back.

After stumbling onto a video on the topic, I decided to pickup 3 half sheets and...

Best Bread Knife

Bread knives are mostly disposable, we recommend just buying a decent one and throw it away when it won't cut anymore instead of trying to sharpen them (it's brutal). Personally, bread knives that have a raised handle and slight curve to the blade work very well.

Best Kitchen Knife Set

A small collection of high quality, sharp knives is better than a kitchen full of dull, second-rate ones. You'll end up with knives you won't use. You really only need a good chef's knive, pairing knife, serated knife and maybe a bread knife. You'll also save money by assembling a smaller set yourse...

Best Fillet Knives

The most undervalued and often overlooked kitchen tool is the fillet knife.

Best Boning Knives

A boning knife is another underappreciated kitchen tool that’s often mistaken by many as a fillet knife. Meat gets most of its flavor from fat, blood and especially from bones. While a chef’s knife can do some of the work, it’s nowhere near the level of what boning knives can do. Breaking down meat ...

Best Wine Aerator

Wine aerators are a great cheat on an inexpensive bottle when you're feeling impatient. Older wines are better for decanting. The rough idea is that an aerator is the equivalent of 30 minutes decanting?
