- Rubber spatula , get the last bit of product out of a bowl or jar. Betty Crocker ones are at the DT, buy the best you can afford.
- A potato masher, Besides mashing potatoes, you can break up hamburger while frying it. There is a special tool for that, it was over 20.00.
- Jar opener, I have one from the 1920s that is the best, but there are good ones on the current market too,
- A food thermometer, Test bread water, the doneness of meat, and baked products (200 degrees)
- A food scale , Break down packages like for pasta. It you cook the whole package and you don't have a large family, the leftovers will go into the fridge and get shoved to the back until it has hair prettier than yours in a typical family. Portioning out a box of pasta saves a lot of waste. Saving the landfill also saves money,
- Portion scoops. Very inexpensive at Costco business, a restraint supply or on Amazon. Great for making meatballs or cookies uniform size so they all cook at the same time, Great portion control. Filling cupcakes or muffin liners.
- Cupcake lines in silicone , They wash and you aren't replacing them over and over. I paid five dollars.
- A non metal wisk. Saves scratches on pans and bowls.
- Silicone bowl covers save money not buying all that plastic wrap.
- Parchment paper is cheapest at DT especially for smaller jobs.
