How to Make basic equipment needed to cook

Step-by-Step

  1. This list I know isn't complete by any means.
  2. Pick things up as you can afford them and as you need them, if that is financially posible.
  3. I have purposely left some things out like round cake pans because a 9x13 pan will make a cake also.
  4. Buy things that can multi task the paring knives and chopping knive will take place of many many items.
