There are precisely 22 essential tools for a home chef. At least according to the duo behind the new Brooklyn-based cookware brand Potluck. After researching and consulting with experts (including New York Times food writer Mark Bittman), they came up with the must-have items for their Essential Bundle and promise not a single piece will wind up collecting dust, regardless of your level of cooking experience. Not only is purchasing the bundle convenient, it’s also super affordable: By skipping the retail markup, Potluck is able to keep the costs down. And as for quality, the tri-ply stainless steel cookware, sharp knives and durable tools are made in the very same factory, and out of the exact same materials, as a fancy high-end brand that’s sold for twice the price at a well-known kitchen store.
