Your Favorite Inexpensive Cookware/Kitchen Tools...

The discussions on these threads:

Do you stereotype a Chef based on his/her cooking tools?

Things That Call Into Question A Cook's Credibility

Cowering In Fear

sparked a lot of discussion, some of it about cookware. They also inspired some of us who consider ourselves serious cooks to defend the use of good but inexpensive tools. I personally don't own anything that's considered top of the line by those who are into owning things that are deemed "top of the line", but I do own a wide range of cookware in both price and quality.

While I think good technique can overcome less than ideal tools, I think it a jackpot when a good or even great tool comes at a surprisingly low price.

Two of my favorite inexpensive tools are:

- Kiwi knives (which have been discussed extensively on this board and range from $3 to $10)
- IKEA non-stick pans (the sturdier ones - I think they have 2 kinds)

What are your favorites?
