What's one kitchen tool you can't cook without?

Let's suppose that you're in a kitchen stadium and you're asked to use only one weapon of choice to battle the Iron Chef greats... What would it be?


Abs

well, i'm not likely to be in such a competition, unless they have a division for cooking grub, but I would need a stove, or source of fire

i'm with beth. i'd have to say fire.

you can prepare food with your fingers if need be, even cleaning an animal.

but you'd have to be really hungry for that.

Assuming the heat source is a given, I don't think there's much I couldn't prepare with a good knife & a bamboo paddle/spatula.

When we've gone camping, I bring my knife, bamboo paddle/spatula, one non-stick fry pan, & one saucepan. With just those 4 things I've been able to make everything from hearty breakfasts to Chicken Piccata for dinner.

ok I'm going to assume a fire (stove or whatever) is provided. I agree I can use my fingers vs. the knife so I'd have to pick my cast iron skillet.

With a heat source as a given, I'd go with a knife. Having spent three years RV-ing full time, I did learn to pare down on the kitchen level.
