7 Modern Kitchen Accessories You Should Have

Which modern kitchen accessories are most important? Which ones can you do without? In this blog post, we’ll be exploring seven modern kitchen accessories you should have in your home, and explaining why you need them in the first place.

This isn’t an exhaustive list by any means; there are plenty of other cool gadgets out there that could also make their way onto the list if we had more space to discuss them!

However, these seven modern kitchen accessories will give you the basics and allow you to create healthy and easy meals for your friends and family that look like they came from a fancy restaurant or food TV show.

#1 – Magnetic Knife Holder

It doesn’t take a lot of extra effort to organize your knives by placing them in a magnetic knife holder so that they’re always available and ready for use. Choosing from the various styles and brands out there, find the one that’s perfect for your needs.

Another add-on is the Magnetic Spice Rack. A spice rack is great because it keeps all your spices organized and easily accessible right on the side of your stovetop or countertop. Oven Mitts are other modern kitchen accessories.

Whether you use oven mitts or potholders when taking items out of the oven, this simple item will protect both hands from getting burned when carrying hot dishes or pans.

#2 – Mixing Bowls with Handle

Mixing bowls are a kitchen staple. They’re typically used for everything from storing leftovers to stirring pasta. At a minimum, you’ll want to make sure your set includes 3 sizes: 1 quart, 2 quarts, and 4 quarts or larger.

When deciding which set of mixing bowls to buy (or if it’s time for an upgrade), look for bowls with a non-slip bottom and silicone handle that stays cool even when the bowl is filled with hot soup or sauce.

#3 – Slim and Wide 4-Pans

If you’re in the market for pans and don’t want to take up too much counter space, these slim and wide pans are a great option as modern kitchen accessories. The slimmer profile means they won’t stick out so far when they’re stored, while still giving you four usable cooking surfaces. If cooking on the stovetop or in the oven, these two features make cleanup a breeze! They also provide optimal heat distribution as heat is more evenly distributed across the pan with fewer hot spots.

#4 – Silicone Baking Mats 

If the way your cookies, cake, or other baked goods come out of the oven resembles a dried-out mess more than a delicious dessert, it’s time to bring some more modern kitchen accessories into your kitchen. That means swapping out your cookie sheets for silicone baking mats.

#5 – Overhead Shelf with Hooks

An overhead shelf is a wonderful way to maximize space in your kitchen. It is an inexpensive, easy-to-install addition that helps keep everything in your pantry neat and tidy. With hooks from which to hang cookware, tools, utensils, oven mitts, and more, there is plenty of room to store things on the shelf.

In addition to saving space on the counter or in cabinets below the sink, they are helpful for small spaces where it may be difficult to use a ladder. Thus, marking them as an important part of modern kitchen accessories.

#6 – Important Modern Kitchen Accessories Deep Dish Pan for Lasagna

This may be the number one item on this list for many people! And for good reason. This pan creates a lasagna dish so perfect, it will make an Italian grandmother smile from ear to ear.

The walls of the pan are deep enough to create those perfect crispy edges that seem to only happen when lasagna is baked in an oven instead of a microwave or stovetop. When purchased as part of an 8-piece set, this is a must-have modern kitchen accessory. 

#7 – Large Glass Mixing Bowls

Mixing bowls are essentially modern kitchen accessories for any cook who bakes a lot or likes to start cooking something new with a lot of ingredients. If you’re setting up your own personal kitchen from scratch, don’t forget to include at least two large glass mixing bowls.

Hope this list of seven modern kitchen accessories will help you to make a few additions to your most loving space in the house!

Happy Living!
