About Ktchn Essentials

Confused about all the different types of cookware out on the market these days? So were we. With so many different options when it comes to the material items are made, sizes of different cooking tools, and a seemingly never ending assortment of bundles, it can be hard to find the perfect pot, pan, cookware set, or kitchen appliance for you. Our personal frustration with the difficulty home chefs can face when trying to navigate the world of cookware led us to our site’s mission statement:

To help home cooks find the perfect tools to meet their needs, and help them build their Essential Ktchn.

You may be wondering, how do you get all the information to put this site together?  Is your house packed floor to ceiling with pots and pans?

As much as possible, we try to personally use all the tools we recommend and review on this site. However if we were to personally purchase every single item we thought may be helpful to our readers, our wallets would be empty and our houses would quite literally be one giant kitchen (one can dream though). In cases where it is not feasible for us to personally test the items we are reviewing, we rely on good old fashioned trips to the store to get our hands on the items and real online reviews to understand just what real home cooks think about these items after using them. This allows us to keep some space in our houses for at least one room not dedicated to cookware and saves you both a trip to the store and hours searching through online reviews.

What can you expect from the site?

Our goal is to help you navigate the wide world of cookware to find the perfect tools for whatever your needs may be. To achieve that goal, we provide comprehensive reviews of the latest cookware and small kitchen appliances to help you make the best purchasing decision possible. Whether you are looking for a trust skillet to use for everyday cooking, or want to upgrade your old 8 piece cookware set from 1999 and aren’t sure where to turn, we are here to help.

If you are looking for something in particular and can’t find it in our existing content and would like our help, just¬†contact us and we will be happy to.

Thanks for reading, and we’ll see you in the ktchn.
