Have you ever tried, (and, oh, haven’t we all?!), to tighten or loosen a screw using something like a nail file or the dull edge of a knife? Perhaps you have the scar to prove it. If so, then you know how much faster, easier and better it is to use a good quality screwdriver with a magnetic tip. The key is the right tool for the right task.
The same holds true for all specialized equipment and accessories; that truth shines like a beacon in a kitchen. Whether it’s the spacious, high-end ambiance of a five-star restaurant, the galley in a fire station, a campfire, or your own home, you’ll enjoy it more, and get better results, when you have the best restaurant quality equipment and cooking accessories to set your “mise en place.”
All of us have been under pressure to “throw something together” at the last minute with the arrival of unexpected dinner guests, or when we thought our hors d’oeuvres tray would last much longer than it actually did. Perhaps we’ve wanted to create a spectacular birthday cake for someone special in our lives, but knew that with the uneven heating in our oven, or the thermostat that seems to have a demon mind of its own, we’d be more likely to produce something only arguably edible instead of spectacular. At times like that, who hasn’t longed for the kind of up-scale kitchen equipment and accessories we know all the top chefs have at their disposal? Not that a sous chef wouldn’t be nice, but true restaurant appliances reduce our variables.
From air purifiers to work tables; from blenders to wine chillers; from reliable can openers to ranges with computer brains, there are hundreds of affordable, work-saving, efficiency-generating, success-producing appliances and tools available today to remove the drudgery from preparing excellent meals and treats for friends, family, customers and cohorts – leaving you, master chef that you know you are – free to create, whether your creation is the centerpiece of an outdoor neighborhood barbecue or a state dinner of world importance.
So what’s stopping you from equipping your kitchen with top-of-the-line equipment and accessories; from having the high-quality home and restaurant kitchen appliances you’d enjoy so much, and that would make your life so much easier?
Usually, the culprit is the assumed cost factor. But today’s prices for really excellent kitchen equipment have come way down from the “uber millionaire’s, life-styles of the you-know-who only” slot they used to occupy. With prices that make professional-grade equipment available to all of us, why not treat yourself to top-of-the-line cooking appliances and accessories?
The fact is that today, a dream kitchen is almost certainly within your reach. Take a brief “web stroll,” and you will quickly come across high quality, yet affordable, appliances such as high-powered cooktops and ranges that fit absolutely flush into standard 24″ deep kitchen cabinets; lines of superb custom-built ventilation hoods; continuous style top grate patterns, (known as an “s” style grates) used by top chefs, that allow easy sliding of cookware from burner to burner; butcher-block work tables and carts; countertop appliances; commercial equipment and concession, (“fun food”) prep equipment.
