So I'm going to start from scratch - mostly because all my current gear is cheap stuff cobbled together over the years and none of it, aside from my potato peeler, works terribly well.
What do YOU consider the essentials of an easy-to-work-in kitchen to be? I'm talking pots, pans, cutlery - the whole shebang.
I have no real interest in tools that only serve on purpose - ricer, bread mixer, etc. - they're not something I really envision myself using, so I'm just talking bare bones here, the essentials for baking and cooking properly and not slaving for hours due to crappy knives or cheap pans.
So suggestions, if you please. 2013 is my big year of change and I may as well change up my kitchen habits too.
Thanks in advance!
