In a small kitchen, you don’t need a great deal of equipment to prepare great food. Still, you do require some pots, pans, utensils, and dishes– obviously. In the BGSK book, you’ll discover a bare bones list of needed devices, but I have long wished to bring you a similar resource online.

So we are going one by one, stocking up our virtual kitchens and possibly our genuine ones too.

Today I want to discuss the electric pot. I’ve a DeLonghi Kmix Pot. I utilize it each early morning of my life to boil water for coffee. That’s a no brainer, not having to handle fire prior to having had my caffeine. Water concerns a boil quickly, even when seen. And that indicates the pot comes in convenient for other reasons, too.

Along with the mini food mill, the kettle sits out on our counter. When I understand I am making pasta or blanching kale for dinner, I’ll fill the kettle up with water as soon as I walk in the door. By the time I’ve actually become sweatpants, the water is boiling, and I can go onto the next step in my supper strategy.

Since a great deal of electric kettles are plastic, and I do not like to mix plastic with hot things, I also love that this kettle is made from stainless steel.

Here are some of the meals where you’ll discover that near-instant hot water makes following the dish much easier.

  • Iced Chai Tea Latte
  • Chocolate Mousse Pie
  • Couscous with Sausage, Greens, and White Beans

(For the chai, you’ll have hot water to high the tea and spices, for the mousse pie, you’ll make coffee actually quickly, which you need to amp up chocolate flavor, and for the couscous, you can put hot water right over the grain and let it rehydrate while you sauté the sausage, conserving a pot.)
