The top 6 cooking tools that every kitchen needs 

Let’s be real. Cooking is an art and like any art, it requires skill, creativity and the right tools. The kitchen is the heart of the home where we can spend hours preparing, eating and drinking. Whether you're a professional MasterChef creating a work of art or you’re a home cook just having fun in the kitchen, having the best kitchen tools can completely change your experience. High quality kitchen tools are essential for making your meals an effortless, enjoyable experience that turn out delicious, every single time. Whilst there are many kitchen tools available, we always reach for the same few more frequently. These are the top 6 best kitchen tools that you will reach for time and time again. 


  1. High quality knives. No kitchen is complete without a high-quality range of stainless steel knives. Tupperware Mastro Knives were designed not only with a great cutting edge and long-lasting performance but also with a unique ergonomic design that fits with the Mastro Cookware range. 

    Whilst we're talking knives, a Chef Knife is a must-have kitchen tool for any recipe that requires chopping, slicing or dicing. A good chef's knife should feel comfortable to hold, be easy to handle and make meal preparation a breeze. Keep in mind, when shopping for a new chef knife, look for a sharp blade that can maintain its edge over time like the A-Series Chef KnifeA genuinely good chef’s knife can last a lifetime and investing in a good one is definitely worth the cost. It’s a game changer - you'll be surprised how much easier and faster food preparation becomes with a chef knife. 

  2. Stainless-Steel Cookware: OK – this is a must-have for every household and here’s why: Stainless steel cookware is durable, versatile, and easy to clean! Not only can it handle high temperatures without warping or cracking, but it can also seamlessly go from stovetop to oven to table. Not sure which items to start with? Think of what you use daily; a decent sized frypan, a wok for sautéing and a pot for boiling! These are naturally our go-to items. 
    Premium, well-seasoned stainless steel cookware will last for generations with the proper care. Whilst stainless steel cookware may be more expensive upfront, it is a cost-effective option in the long run without requiring frequent replacements. Tupperware’s Mastro stainless steel cookware is just that – premium. The cookware distributes heat evenly whilst also retaining heat. Become a chef in the comfort of your own home and explore various cuisines and recipes with stainless steel cookware. Let’s not forget the sleek and modern look that will elevate any kitchen!

  3. Mixing Bowls - Mixing bowls are another essential tool in every kitchen. You might remember your mum, or grandmother having her favourite mixing bowls ready when prepping pancakes or the weekly dessert. A mixing bowl can be used for mixing, whisking, and even serving food. It’s basically a bowl that does everything. Having a variety of sizes is essential to accommodate different cooking needs. Look for bowls that are sturdy and dishwasher safe – better yet, opt for bowls that nest to save storage space like the Ultimate Mixing Bowls.

  4. Silicone Spatula - A silicone spatula is one of the great kitchen tools that’s handy, versatile and can be used daily for stirring, mixing, and scraping. It is gentle on cookware, and can be used on both hot and cold ingredients – it’s a no brainer. Silicone spatulas are also safe for use on both stainless steel and non-stick cookware. Look for a spatula that is dishwasher safe and has a comfortable grip.

  5. Cutting Board – This one might seem obvious, but a cutting board is an essential tool for every kitchen – it should be a non-negotiable in every household. An effective cutting board provides a safe and stable surface for cutting and chopping vegetables, fruits, meats, and other ingredients. TupperTip: Choose a cutting board that is durable and made of materials that are easy to clean, like our Flexible cutting mat. Additionally, having a separate cutting board for meats and another for vegetables can help prevent cross-contamination.
