Do you have a specific day of the week when all distractions are off limits and you eat a meal as a family?
We do, and it’s one of my favorite times to cook.
What makes it one of my favorites is because it’s always a meal we all love and it’s prepared so easily because of the quality tools I use. 
Having great kitchen tools makes food preparation so much easier. Thanks to GoodCook I was able to pick out 15  kitchen gadgets.
Here are the tools in my drawer.

  1. Stainless steel locking tongs 9″
  2. Medium Silicone Flex Turner
  3. Deluxe Melamine Lasagne Server 12″
  4. Pizza Cutter, Jumbo Classic
  5. Nylon Ladle, Black 12 1/2″
  6. Nylon Whisk
  7. Safecut 4-1 Can Opener, White
  8. Stainless Steel Silicone Tip Locking Tongs, 12″
  9. Nylon Slotted Spoon, Black 12 1/2″
  10. Santoku Knife, 7″
  11. Nonstick Santoku Knife, 5″
  12. Fine Edge Santoku Knife, 5″
  13. Fine Edge Cook’s Knife, 6″
  14. Nonstick Chef’s Knife, 5″
  15. Santoku Knife, 5″
I chose items 1-9 because there is nothing more time consuming than not having specific kitchen tools for specific jobs. 
Have you ever tried using kitchen scissors to cut pizza instead of a pizza cutter, or a slotted spoon to serve soup?
Having the right tools makes things run better in the kitchen and reduces unnecessary meal prep frustrations.
I chose items 10-15 because great knives are the one thing I highly recommend new or old homeowners to invest in.
Trying to cut through bone using the wrong knife is a huge time waster. You spend so much time sawing through the bone, when with the proper knife, you can cut through bone like butter.
Take a look at how easy it is to make my family breakfast signature dish using some of the tools from GoodCook.

Sweet potatoes are one of the hardest potatoes to cut when not using the correct knife. I used the Nonstick Santoku Knife, and 
Nonstick Chef’s Knife to cut through the sweet potatoes, making the task, so much faster and easier.
Removing the sweet potatoes from the boiling water in my non-stick pan was easy and I didn’t worry about scratching the pan since the Stainless Steel Silicone Tip Locking Tongs have no metal tips. 
While the sweet potatoes, cooked and my oil heated up. I kept stirring my grits using the Nylon Slotted Spoon.
After sticking my sweet potatoes down in some hot oil, I placed a few slices of turkey bacon in the oven. The Stainless steel locking tongs 9″ come in handy when you don’t want to touch meats.
When the sweet potatoes are nearly browned, I whisk up a few eggs and scramble them.
Making breakfast is a snap with such amazing kitchen tools.
