Filling you kitchen with an array of equipment is only necessary if you genuinely use each and every one of them, so do think before you buy and take your time when choosing products that will help you and your family create lots of lovely yumminess!
Expert knives will serve you well, and cutting boards (one for each food group: fruits and vegetables, meats, fish and other (onions, garlic etc (smelly foods) will be beneficial. Eco-friendly storage bags used in and outside of the fridge are recommended to help keep foods fresher for longer. For most of my other storage uses I use glass containers in varying shapes an sizes, my favourites are bottles. They store well, clean well and last forever :-) Using glass is much more eco-friendly than using plastic, although BPA products are safe to use and preferable for use outside of the home.
