5 Items Your (Tiny) NYC Kitchen Needs
Cabinet space is precious—use it wisely
Sure, we’d all love to have a waffle iron and an ice-cream maker, but for most of us New Yorkers, that’s not really practical. But even in tiny apartments, these five items are a must.
A Set of Nesting Bowls
You’re never going to regret having more bowls—for baking prep, for leftovers, for popcorn. (Bonus: They look cute, too.)
For especially small kitchens, creating additional storage is a must. Hooks—applied to cabinets, walls or the fridge—make a place for dish towels, mugs, pots and just about anything else you can think of.
A Can Opener That Actually Works
This one’s not glamorous, but think about all the can openers you’ve gone through in your life—reads kind of like a string of disappointing exes, doesn’t it? Look for one that uses side cutting: Not only does the unique mechanism somehow manage to eliminate any sharp edges, it lasts way longer than standard versions.
