Stocking A New Kitchen

I might be outta order making this thread but I have looked in the history for about a half hour now getting lost in the forums and haven't found a link like it yet. If there is please delete this thread Mr./Mrs.Admin and direct me to said thread.


Like in the last thread that identified the flatbread warmer I mentioned that I was going to stock my own kitchen soon. I have made a small list of what I want but that doesn't even cover it yet. I would love it if people would suggest things and add to it, or give me better alternative. Please post your own dream kitchen and the kitchen you have now. I would love to hear it! No links to where to buy it though, I have a source already but links to pictures will be greatly appreciated.
Also as a side note I haven't picked out china ware yet so if anyone can help with that it would be lovely.

List:
-Wooden Cooking Spoons
-Blender
-Large food processor
-Aroma[brand] Rice Cooker
-Mason Jars
-Gas Burner [portable]
-Various sized pots and pans
-Flat faced skillet (for the flatbreads, lolz)
-Electric Juicer
-Mortar and Pistol
-Forks, knifes and spoons (duh)
-Wooden Bowls and Metal Bowls (for cooking)
-Toaster
-TeaPot/Tea Set
-Glass containers (in lue of plastic ones. I hate putting something greasy in it and then it's hard to scrub and hard to get that yucky leftover smell.)
-Rice Scoop
-Bamboo Mat
-Baking Cups (so plastic, like those fancy soft resin ones)
-Cheese Cloth
-Plastic Mixing Bowls
-Electric Coffee Grinder ( i will use it for beans and seeds because coffee....messes me up "Blurrr" )
-Baking Pans
-Cooling Rack
-CROCK POT! (Edit: 5min after the post. lolz)

Thats my list at the moment. It might be updated and edited as I grow with my cooking skill and learn more about cook ware brands.

As with tools, in general, I would purchase items (or sets) as I need them, and buy the best you can afford.

I'd be careful with that! Do you have to get a license first?

Seriously, don't forget measuring cups and spoons.

One of my most valued kitchen items is my Anchor-Hocking 2-quart batter bowl. Believe it or not I have 3 of them and, many times, I have 2 of them at use at the same time. Wouldn't be without them. They're handy for all sorts of things and can go into the microwave or oven and hold enough to take care of many mixing tasks. Plus, the handle and pouring spout are more than useful. I bought two of mine at yard sales and the other one, with my coupon, at Bed, Bath & Beyond. They look like this.

The second thing I would suggest you add to your list is a microplane grater. Mine is about 12 inches long and is about an inch or so wide. It's divided into two equal sections. One end produces a somewhat coarsely grated product. The other quite fine results.

Truthfully, there's rarely a day when one or both of the above kitchen helpers isn't pressed into service here.

I wouldn't get rubber spatulas. I would highly recommend silicone instead. They don't dissolve in oil and grease. And, you can use them on hot frying pans, etc.
