Hosting dinner parties is simply not in my realm of expertise at all. I hate to admit it, but I’m mostly just an “I’ll just chuck a few frozens in the air fryer and call it a night” kind of girl. But, as I prepare to enter my 22nd lap around the sun this year, I’ve decided it’s well and truly time to learn how to make a proper dish or two (and for people other than just myself). To help me on my Gordon Ramsay-esque quest, at the very least, I thought I’d better start off by finding myself some kitchen essentials to start practising with.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, kitchen tools can be a massive drain on an already slim bank account. Still, if you know where to look (*ahem* Amazon’s kitchen deals), you’ll be surprised to find you can save a buck (or $50) on coffee makers, toasters, frypans, microwaves, knife sets, waffle makers and more.

So, please, allow me to share my haul.

  • Chef here. The linked Global is a boning knife. They also have a deal on the 8 inch Chef’s Knife, which while personally isn’t my cup of tea, I know a few chefs that use it who prefer a lighter knife.

    The fry pan looks like a decent deal. I just paid $75 for something similar recently. Note that it’s not non-stick
