As a Chef, it’s absolutely necessary that I invest in my cooking appliances and tools. With the amount of time I spend in the kitchen, I need tools that will get the job done efficiently, as well as stand the test of time.
With that in mind, it only makes sense that I have high quality equipment.
Fortunately, I own tools like Shun Kaji Knives and All-Clad Cookware. Unfortunately, this didn’t come without high cost, and in-fact took me years to save and accumulate the collection I work with today.
This kind of repertoire doesn’t make sense for everybody, and I get that! I’m asked all the time about a “cheaper alternative” or a “dupe” to the equipment I use. Here’s my answer:
More Affordable Alternative:
I will always recommend investing in quality kitchen tools, but that doesn’t mean a more affordable alternative won’t get the job done. After hours of net surfing and product review scouring, I believe these alternatives are your BEST bet.
They may not be the “thriftiest” options out there, but that’s because they’re standing up to the best-of-the-best household appliances and holding their own. Compared to the top brand prices, these options are certainly steals and my recommendation to you.
