Basic kitchen tools. My list of top essential kitchen tools is: one solid, sharp knife; one serrated knife; saucepans in different sizes (I prefer cast iron); one or two wood cutting boards; measuring spoons; liquid measuring cups and solid measuring cups (there is a difference); wooden spoon(s), spatula and whisk; food processor; hand grater; electric hand mixer or stand mixer (optional); mixing bowls of a few different sizes; two sheet pans; one muffin pan and/or loaf pan.
Best type of salt to use. I always use Himalayan pink salt or sea salt. These salts are less refined, and they have a milder flavor. They are also loaded with beneficial minerals.
Preferred method of frying for a healthier option. Air frying, using an air fryer appliance, is my go-to. You’ll get a crispy outside and the moist inside similar to deep-frying in oil—but without the oil. It’s the new, healthier way to fry food that doesn’t sacrifice taste and is much less messy.
