Heavy-duty stockpot with inserts

Safety first, yes? Carrying a fully loaded pasta pot to the colander in the sink is: a) potentially dangerous, b) hard on your back, and c) a pain. When you cook pasta with an insert all you need lift and carry is the pasta-filled insert. Easy peasy. Not to mention that the water can be used again for another batch or an additional ingredient. That’s what you call green cooking.

Blind baking weights

Yes, beans or rice will do the trick when you are lining pie and tart doughs for prebaking. But I vote for official baking weights, either ceramic, or in a handy chain of metal beads. Super heavy, they will hold the dough in place and prevent shrinking.

Silicone spatulas

The proof was clear the first time you used a rubber spatula, possibly as long ago as your first batch of brownies, baked in your mother’s kitchen – rubber spatulas rule! Or they did, until silicone came along and dominated. No more melting. No more bits breaking off into the pudding. All shapes and sizes. Pretty colors optional, but irresistible.
