Tools of the Trade
Appliances fit for a chef won't transform you into a culinary whiz, but they might give you confidence to cook more daring dishes.
Perhaps you put your chef’s hat on every few months for a dinner party. Perhaps it’s every weekend to treat your significant other, or maybe it’s every night as you embark on your own Julie and Julia type adventure.
If at any point during your culinary adventures you’ve looked at your appliances and cooking tools and wondered, “Would an actual chef be caught dead using what I’m using?” this is the section for you. Five great chefs from around the United States answered our questions about the type of appliances and cooking tools they like to have in their work and home kitchens. Our Appliance Q & A includes the best responses from our panel of chefs. To learn more about the professionals we interviewed (and see some of their delicious dishes), check out our Meet the Chefs area.
