Kitchen utensils make all the difference in the world when it comes to easy cooking. Imagine trying to stir gravy without a spoon, fishing donuts out of hot oil without a set of tongs, or dishing up steaming soup without a ladle. Cookie cutters enable making shaped baked goods, and knives of all sorts are needed for peeling, chopping, or slicing food items. A good meat grinder enables making hamburger or sausage. Cleaned up, it can be multipurposed to grinding fruit to release its juice. Specialty utensils include items that slice and core fruit at the same time.
