Those of you who’ve been reading the blog for a while know that I despise clutter. Especially in the kitchen. There’s nothing I hate more than going into the kitchen and having to clean it before I can even cook in it…because then I have to clean it up when I’m done, too!
So when Jerin Marina approached me about doing an article for the blog about the essential items to furnish your brand new kitchen with, I loved the idea! I mean, come on, what woman would not want to suddenly have a brand new kitchen and furnish it with the necessities…and that’s IT! Jerin herself is a passionate cook and blogger who specializes in providing information on and reviews of food processors (which I think is fantastic – considering I don’t have a food processor *gasp* and I’ve learned a lot from her site! Check it out at BestFoodProcessorGuide.net when you can! Tons of fanatic information and side-by-side comparisons, the works!)
And so, without further ado, here’s Jerin!
Moving into a new home can be pretty nerve-wrecking for some people, as they have to deal with a lot of things so they can settle in comfortably. It has been found through studies and surveys that people take about two weeks on average to get settled in a new home, which, when compared to people living in fast cities, like New York, is pretty slow. People in New York take about a total of three days to get settled in a new home. The main reason for that is that people living in fast-paced cities know what tools, equipments and accessories are required for them to get settled in easily. The most important portion of a new home that takes up the most time is the kitchen. Here is your guide to the essential kitchen accessories and tools for your new home.
Refrigerator: Refrigerator is one of the most essential kitchen accessories that you will need. It is used to store your fresh food as well as leftovers. It is the source of ice most of the time and if you want to have fresh food every day then refrigerator is a must in your kitchen.
Microwave: Microwave is another accessory that you will need, as once the food is brought out of the refrigerator, it needs to be heated before it can be consumed most of the time. But heating the food on the stove means there is a risk of burning it, so you can just heat it in the microwave without spoiling the food whatsoever.
Food processor: The food processor is probably one of the important and essential tools that are required in the kitchen in terms of preparation of food. Food processors come inbuilt with different purposes like chopping, shredding, slicing, dicing, etc., which can make the time required to cook and prepare a meal come down significantly. Also, waste is minimized, as manual labor for processing different foods may make the food end up in the trash.
Pressure cooker: a pressure cooker is also one of the important kitchen accessories and tools for your new home, as a pressure cooker cooks everything with pressure. (Which means it is a source to save on energy and time, which in turn means saving money!) Also, when cooking in a pressure cooker, the essential vitamins and nutrients of the food are sealed in it as only the excess heat is passed out.
Utensils: Utensils are important as they are required: from prepping the food to serving the food to actually eating the food. Utensils like spatulas, spoons, bowls, forks, dishes, etc., are very important. Jars for storage of different things are equally necessary, as not everything can be stored in the refrigerator. Air-tight containers, which are generally made of glass, are required to store spices and other condiments.
Apart from these there are many other kitchen accessories that are required in the kitchen, like cabinets, carts, dishwashers, sinks, garbage disposals, etc., but those can be managed without for some time.

If you had to choose ONE item from your kitchen that you could not live without, what would it be? Could you let all the rest go if need be?
