The Well Prepared Kitchen

I’ve been collecting kitchen related gadgets my entire adult life. There are a few pieces I’ve found to be indispensable. There are just certain items I can’t live without (need-to-haves). Then there are those little luxuries which just make me happy when I use them (nice-to-haves). Here’s my list of gadgets that make me prepared for anything:
