I remember exploring the kitchen as a kid, opening different drawers and cupboards and discovering the world that belonged to my mother. One drawer in particular stood out. That drawer was packed full of wooden and metal spoons, strange knives, rolling pins and a crazy assortment of handheld gadgets some of them looking like bizarre torture implements. The kitchen tools I discovered in that drawer over 40 years ago are dwarfed by the amount of gadgets available to consumers today. But are they all really necessary? Will you be a better cook owning them?
