Episode 7 - Tools: The Big, The Small, The Essential

Cooking is, of course, about food but remember, there are also tools involved to make your life easier. We no longer have to cook over an open campfire, wash our food and equipment and dishes and ourselves, for that matter, in the nearby lake, or use our bare hands to tear food apart.


Primitive humans discovered (certainly by accident) that when food is cooked it is typically more flavorful so fire became a necessity and cooking was created. Washing and cutting came along somewhat later but also made it easier to eat.

Nowadays, we covet our tools whether big, small or somewhere in between but we are here to let you in on a little secret…stay basic and essential and you will be a happier cook. You honestly don’t need a gadget for every task. There are many tools, like knives, for instance, that can tackle many jobs.

So in this episode of Not A Single Fork, we are going to guide you through the unending maze of large appliances, small, countertop appliances and the smallest hand-held tools that you really need to make your cooking life fun, easy and stress-free.

Join us as we tell you more than you probably want to know about all the tools that we love oh, and don’t love so much. Because yes, we have an opinion…or five.

There’s also a new Rants and Raves as we go crazy talking about what we love or DON’T. We even throw in some Tips and Tricks here and there. If you have a question, leave it in the comments below and we will be happy to address it in our next episode. It’s time for you to get involved in this whole thing, too!

Be sure to listen, subscribe and review our podcast and please leave us a comment (or question)…we love that!!
