The essential kitchen accessories

Want to be able to whip up a storm in the kitchen just like the contestants on My Kitchen Rules?

There are a few essential accessories that every kitchen needs that’ll have you cooking like an expert (or at least presenting like one). Apart from your standard chopping blocks, spatulas and other utensils that you would (or should) already have, there are a few items every aspiring chef requires in their kitchen cupboards that are not just the staples.

Whether it’s slicing your potatoes paper thin like those five-star restaurants do, to burning the Crème Brûlèe to a caramelised perfection, it’s hard to do if you don’t have the skill set let alone the tools. Here are our 12 must-have kitchen accessories to get you cooking like a professional.
