Step into my virtual kitchen and look around on my counter, in the cabinets and drawers for the cooking tools that I use myself and recommend. Just click on the picture and find yourself in the shop to place your order and for convenient home delivery!

Cooking tools you should have

MORTAR & PESTLE

If you want to show off how far back to basics you are prepared to go, make a lot of noise with this Cobek & Ulekan (pestle & mortar). This tool has been in use for hundreds of years to prepare ingredients or substances by crushing and grinding them into a fine paste or powder. No electricity required!

MAGIC BULLET

OK, back to the future. I admit I use this more often than the mortar & pestle. Because it is so easy. Use it to chop, mix, blend, whip, grind & more. It’s truly magic!

WOK  (WAJAN)

In the wok we make our nasi goreng, our bakmi goreng, we use it for deep frying, steaming and for all kinds of stir fry. Carbon steel is relatively light in weight, providing quick heat conduction, and having reasonable durability. The bottom is also “padded” with extra steel so it is thicker and allows the bottom area to hold heat well.

ELECTRIC RICE COOKER

Cooking rice is easy peasy with this electric rice cooker. This is the exact brand and model I use.  Can’t go wrong with this one. Rice is perfect. Best bang for the buck.

DIGITAL SCALE

My mom and grandma cooked by taste & feel, a bit of this and a bit of that. They had a built-in weighing scale. When it comes to making pastry, I learned you have to follow the exact weights. So, this is a digital scale (yes batteries required) I have in my collection.
