Your survival kit!

You’ve just moved home: here are some kitchen utensils you’re sure to use daily

You’ve just moved into your new home, or are about to. Sometimes it’s hard to know which items will come in really handy, and which will be forgotten at the bottom of a drawer. Here are some tips.

Your survival kitThe kitchen – the heart of any home!

When you first move into your own home, it can be hard to guess what you will and won’t need, especially in the kitchen. In terms of the basics, make sure you invest in good frying pans and saucepans of different sizes. You’ll undoubtedly need a kettle or a coffee maker (or both!), as well as a toaster. And don’t forget all the little utensils that will make your life easier: a sieve, spatula, corkscrew, vegetable peeler and so on. If you have an oven, don’t forget to buy suitable oven dishes, and cake tins or muffin trays if you enjoy baking.

An iron, bathroom scales… those important little extras in any new home!

While not absolutely vital, some things come in very useful when you’ve just set up home. An iron may certainly come in handy (a steam station might be a good option if you do a lot of ironing), as will bathroom scales, which you will certainly need at some point. If you like having friends over for dinner, a raclette machine or Crep’Party are novel ways to notch up the fun!
