Essential kitchen tools

(article, Culinate staff)

The New York Times has a kitchen-video series called Kitchen 4B, about cooking in a really, really small apartment kitchen. The most recent video offered up a top-12 list of essential kitchen tools. It's pitched at folks with small kitchens, natch, but the list is pretty basic for any home cook: a chef's knife, a cast-iron skillet, a wooden spoon. Finally, the Kitchen 4B host, Jill Santopietro, plumps for a scale so you can measure your ingredients accurately. Weigh to go.
