You’ve been busy this year putting together your new place and decorating it with some of the best apartment essentials around. You even purchased the finest backyard gear to put together the perfect backyard oasis for outdoor entertaining and relaxation. One thing you shouldn’t overlook is your utensils list. Kitchen utensil sets are a necessity for any kitchen.

You could buy each piece individually, but why do that when you can purchase complete sets? Most of these sets come with regular cooking utensils and baking utensils. What kitchen utensils you need will depend on what type of cook you are. If you tackle all the recipes you can find and are always in the kitchen, you may need to have a larger set. However, if you’re just starting out, maybe you need some of the basics to get your feet wet.

The best kitchen utensil set you can pick up are ones that fit your lifestyle. It’s not merely about the lowest prices, it’s about the quality of the material. You don’t want something that will melt the moment you leave it on the cooking vessel. Just like anything else, there are several options available to you for utensils for the kitchen.

The best kitchen tools to use with your cookware are silicone kitchen utensils, wooden utensils, or stainless steel. Utensils for cooking are made to withstand high temperatures and should be made of high quality material so they are long-lasting. Some of the hard plastic utensils you find are sometimes made of toxic materials and they melt if you set them on the cookware or next to the burner. With the research we did on the best kitchen utensil sets, the only thing you will need to pick up separately are the bottle opener and wine key.

10 of the Best Kitchen Knives to Gift This Year
Chef chopping a vegetable with a knife.

When in doubt, give the gift of quality kitchen knives. Write it in your journal, even tattoo it on your forearm. Do whatever you have to do to remember that no matter how many blades a man (or woman) owns, they can always have more. If you’re struggling to think of a meaningful gift to give that special someone or even an acquaintance, a knife (or knife set) will be better than that customized blanket with your face on it you were considering. 

However, there is a caveat. Gifting a bad knife or knife set can be very bad and even insulting to certain people. If you gift a $50 knife block set that you picked up at Big Lots, you might as well kiss that relationship goodbye. Because it doesn’t take a chef to know a decent knife when you see one.
