Kitchen tools you need two of
It seems my spatula/turner is always in the dishwasher sitting there dirty when I need it (which is often), so last night I bought (rage bought) a new one off ebay at 2 AM. lol. It's just an el cheapo $5 steel one.

Spatula is definitely a tool you need 2 of. Any other tools in the same category?

Actually, two of me sometimes. The one who does, and the other who is supposed to be doing clean up as he goes.

Oven Mitts


Measuring cups, actually more than two in some sizes
Measuring spoons, for when one gets wet and you need dry
Favorite size mixing bowls. pie plates

Most of the above can be found at garage/ estate/ sales.

We seem to have multiples of just about every kitchen hand tool. Drawers are too full of them.

I have three spatulas - two metal and one for the non-stick - plus a fish turner [emoji38]

I also have:

- Duplicate measuring cups and spoons
- About 20 wooden utensils - stirrers and scrapers - including some with silicon heads.
- Three half sheet pans and two racks.
- Two old spice containers refilled with table salt - one in the baking cabinet and one near the stove for seasoning pasta and potato water.
- strainers

That's all I can think of right now.

Oh, and Tupperware. My wife is a Tupperware freak. At least half of our cabinets are full of this stuff.....talk about wasted cabinet space.....and the other half are in the garage, in cardboard boxes, some sets never opened or used.

I have favorite spatulas, tongs, etc. and they are always washed by hand and put away never to see the dishwasher, thanks to the Souschef. The dishwasher is fine for lots of things but not for daily cooking favorites, as we only run the dishwasher about twice a week.

couple years ago, I took everything out of the drawer and put it in a box. Then I did the same thing with the next drawer and put that in a box, on the floor. Then I did it again. So for 2 weeks every time I used something I put it back in the drawers. Consolidated the boxes and that is my extra kitchen junk. My drawers are full again but much more useful stuff in there. 2 sets of measuring spoons, 3 sets of cup measures, 3 - 4 cup measures, 4 kinds of thermometers, 2 silicone scrapers.

Chopsticks! You need 2 chopsticks for them to function properly.
Otherwise you just have a spear.

Two of everything, at least...or so it seems. Couple of years ago I cleaned out my kitchen cabinets and gave a ton of stuff for a charity tag sale. When I got home, the cabinets were full. Still a mystery. And spatulas...carbon steel and stainless, griddle spatulas, steak turners, cake turners, stiff and flexy, couple of fish turners in there, grilling spatulas for the barbie. I am totally terrible about this.
