Having a good-quality chef’s knife is an essential part of any kitchen. Especially when it is personalized. This might be perfect for someone who is moving to college, out on their own, or simply someone who is moving.
If you have a knife, you will need a cutting board or you may destroy your countertops or the knife itself. Getting a beautiful cutting board made from fine wood and with custom laser engraving is the perfect gift to include with a knife or on its own. Despite this, there are different types of cutting boards.
Edge vs End-Grain Cutting Boards
Edge-grain boards may eventually dull your knives, so instead, it’s better to get high-end “end-grain” cutting boards. These are usually made from wood chunks. This also allows the knife to slice between the grain, which keeps it sharp.
Getting a stand mixer is a must-have for any kitchen. This is a bit more pricey though, so you will need to want to make a large purchase for someone. It may even be a life-altering purchase. It is essential to think about the different additions they might need though, so this may not be the best choice if you are trying to keep the price low.
Carbon Steel or Cast Iron Pan
Having either carbon steel or cast iron pan is also an essential kitchen item. They do have similar characteristics, such as heat retention and the ability to withstand high temperatures and they can even go from the stove to the oven. They are also natural and not made with fake non-stick coating which is healthier.
Dutch ovens are known to be amazing. They can fry meat, create soups, and even bake bread. If you are going camping you can bring a dutch oven, and you can also use it simply for boiling water.
Fine barware is great for drinks and is a must-have for any kitchen. You might also want to look into custom sets of pint glasses, beer mugs, stemware, champagne flutes, and other types of glasses. This makes it a very classy option.
