Again this is a thin and sleek gadget making it easy to store and use regularly.

The quickest way to get that rind into a dish

8. Kitchen Aid

Another one of the best investments ever made. This multi purpose, multi functional equipment is heavy and expensive but used to make anything and everything from bread to cake to pie dough. Its also perfect to mince,chop, grate, roll pasta etc with different attachments. This is my all round sue chef and kitchen helper.


9. Good Knife & a knife holding magnetic stripe

Knifes of course are very personal and depend on the intention of use and size of your hand for comfort and grip. I personally have a Shun Kai – Classic Chef Knife that I use on a daily basis. Its an all rounder and best for everyday use making cooking life super easy and hassle free. Available at Tabletartqatar (City center Qatar) –  QAR 640 / FINTORP  (Ikea Qatar) – QAR 35


10.Cutting board

Make way for the mother of all cutting boards – The Frankfurter Brett. This german designed peice of art is crowdfunding winner and any cooking & organizing freaks dream come true. My christmas dream was realized when I order myself one of these to be delivered only sometime next year. Yes, its going to be a while until my late christmas present arrives but I’m 100% sure it’ll be worth the wait!
