Editors' Picks: Best Kitchen Tools
I love my sexy, shapely Leopold jiggers—handy for a cocktail, but I use them to measure all manner of liquids. ($20, amazon.com) —Jordana Rothman
Friends are always so fascinated whenever I bust out my genius Magisso Tea Cup. Tilt it one way to steep; tip it the other way to sip! ($20, amazon.com) —Elyse Inamine
I’m obsessed with the crank-style apple peeler I discovered at Four & Twenty Blackbirds in Brooklyn. It makes quick (and fun) work of peeling, coring and slicing. ($55, amazon.com) —Morgan Goldberg
I love the weight and look of my Shun Premier chef’s knife. I feel like a master when I use it, despite my (admittedly) limited skills. ($180, amazon.com) —Farrah Shaikh McLaren
I use my fish spatula for much more than just flipping delicate fillets. It’s perfect for transferring warm cookies to a cooling rack. (williams-sonoma.com) —Justin Chapple
I received a Dansk Kobenstyle Butter Warmer as a gift and use it constantly–to melt butter, reheat soup and warm cream for ganache. ($32, amazon.com) —Anna Painter
I can’t live without my KitchenAid spiralizer attachment. It turns zucchini into noodles in less than a minute and transforms daikon and carrots into perfect strands for banh mi pickles—all without breaking a sweat. ($80, amazon.com) —Susan Choung
Whether squeezing limes for whiskey sours and margaritas, or lemons to make my kids lemonade, the Chef’n FreshForce Citrus Juicer is amazing. ($20, amazon.com) —Anthony Giglio
You don’t need a set of twenty pans, these are our essential five: a large oven-safe skillet (for searing meat, making pan sauces, finishing dishes in the oven), large nonstick skillet (for fish, eggs, pancakes), two sauce pans and a large pot for soups and stews. While you could add a small skillet to the mix, you can do anything in a large skillet that you can in a small. —FW Test Kitchen
KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer
Worth the investment, we use this workhorse for making everything from whipped cream to dough and, with some of our favorite attachments, for rolling out pasta, grinding meat and stuffing sausages. ($269.99, amazon.com) —FW Test Kitchen
Le Creuset 7-Quart Dutch Oven
This versatile pan is our go-to for one pot meals. It’s also ideal for deep frying with its high sides and consistent heat distribution. (amazon.com) —FW Test Kitchen
Sub-Zero Wine Fridge and Glass Front Refrigerator
Store lots of wine, up to 146 bottles, on shelves that extend way out, making it easy to see everything. Two separate zones means we can keep reds and whites at the ideal temperature while a slanted shelf is perfect for open bottles.
The see-through glass door in this super sleek model makes us stay organized. The deep crisper drawer holds lots of produce and the all stainless one is perfect for meat and fish.
We love the powerful stacked burners on Wolf’s range and the heavy duty grates, which are flush so it’s easy to slide pans across the surface.
