When a new season of Top Chef comes at us, it’s like a breath of fresh air enters our kitchens. Not that we’ve been eating take-out every night since the last season’s finale (don’t judge us!), but when the show goes away, so does our weekly inspiration. There’s something about Quickfire challenges and watching chefs cobble together recipes that makes us say, “Maybe we’ll throw together a stir fry tonight!”
Since we’ll certainly be spending more time in our kitchens this winter, let’s make sure we’re stocked with Top Chef-worthy gadgets, shall we? Whether you’re baking, dicing or sauteeing, these 10 must-have products will make you’re prep easier and your execution so flawless that you’ll be cool as a cucumber when it’s time to face the judges at Elimination (or, um, your friends and family).
