While slicing a block of cheese can be a fairly easy task to do with a knife, grating it can be a problem without a handy grater. In addition, you can use a grater to grate more than only cheese. You can use it for grating potatoes, carrots and any other vegetable you want.

Vegetable Peeler

Peeling vegetables with a knife, although possible, can be frustrating and difficult to achieve. With a quality vegetable peeler in hand, you will be able to peel potatoes, carrots, cucumbers and more in no time and your fingers will be safe as well.


Flipping different kinds of food by using a fork aside from been inefficient is also dangerous. Plus, the metal fork can cause damage on the cooking surface. Use a quality spatula instead to turn over thick foods like fried rice, or to flip pancakes or to mix scrambled eggs.

Wood Spoons

When you use metal utensils to stir foods in nonstick pans, you scratch the nonstick coating off. Using wood spoons will prevent scratch and prolong the life of your pans. Choose to buy a set with varying handle lengths and you will be ready to mix anything you want.

Wire Whisks

This is an essential kitchen utensil to whip up fluffier eggs, lump-free sauces and light-as-air cakes.

Quality Knife Set
