W H A T W E L O V E 5 Must-Have Kitchen Items (and 5 To Pass Up) Kitchen drawer space can be tight; especially, in military housing. Here are the five must-have kitchen items you'll want to make room for... 2 AN EXCELLENT CHEF'S KNIFE Choose a quality knife made with carbon steel that will resist corrosion, wear, and tear. A favorite is the 7" W├╝sthof Classic Hollow- Edge Santoku. This knife is light in the handle and sharp on the blade, which means no fatigue after slic- ing apples for pie. A sturdy, sharp knife will save you a lot of time and a lot of cuts! William Sonoma offers this 7" blade for about $80, and is worth the investment. 1 THE CL ASSIC KITCHENAID MIXER The company is turning 100 years old in 2019 and this event will likely result in steals and deals in the near future. Shopping for a KitchenAid mixer is like visiting Candyland; mixers come in every color you can think of, and some you can't. The popular Artisan Series 5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer will run an aspir- ing cook about $300. 3 RIMMED ALUMINUM BAKING SHEETS (SHEET PANS) They can be used for baking cookies and roasting vegetables, and also double as serving trays. They are stackable and compact, making storage a breeze. While commercial pan sizes will be too large to fit in a home oven, the 18- by 13-inch half-sheets are perfectly sized. Nordic Ware Natural Aluminum Commercial Baker's Half Sheet Pans cost only $24 per pair. 4 A STURDY PAIR OF KITCHEN SHEARS The Chef Remi Multifunction Shears deliver simple cutting and much more. Who wouldn't want a pair of scissors with the ability to cut, fillet, open cans and bottles, and crack open those tough holiday nuts? These shears are perfect for righties and lefties due to their soft-grip handles and symmetrical shape. As a testament to their strength and durability, they can go right in the dishwasher with no fear of rust. The best part? The shears are only $13 on Did we miss an essential item?
