I would say a good saucepan set teflon not S/S, a good chopping board I got this for birthday (http://shop.bigpond.com/Product.asp?...tail&ID=132148) and it's so nice to work with and a thermomix. Also a tupperware brand can opener and good garlic press.

I love cooking!! A good knife block, I hate Teflon because it's carsongenic (sp)? I use heavy based saucepans & love stainless steel. Le Creseut set for baking casseroles and doing vegetables etc.. A bamix, juicer, food processor, nothing plastic!!

An oven that works would be nice :haha:
Decent pantry / cupboards too.
Kettle, toaster, Slow cooker, big electric fry pan, electric steamer set, stick mixed with chopped accessory, cheapo mixer, small set of pots & 1 large pot (i rarely stove cook anything ).
Smaller utensils - decent knives, a good pair of scissors, wooden spoon, ladle type things.)
Baking utensils (i prefer metal ones, havent got the hang of silicone)
Random mix of pastas
Chicken tonight sauces / maggie etc sauces

A cutlery set
Glasses and mugs
A few sharp knives
Measuring Cups and Spoons
Bottle Opener (some sauces have lids that need one)
Mixing Bowls/Salad Bowls
Cake Pans in varying types
Saucepans in various sizes, with lids
A Steamer insert
Various frying pans
I also use these little clips that you use on packets to re-seal them for later, I use them heaps
Foods I would deem as essentials for my kitchen...
Flour - plain and SR
Baking Powder (not bicarb)
Various herbs and spices
Stock - liquid, cubes or powder
Variety of sandwich spreads - jam, honey, vegemite, peanut butter, etc
I always keep a frozen pizza in my freezer too, in case we're really poor or I'm sick or something
Tins of diced tomatoes
2 Min Noodles
Long life milk (as a "just in case" measure)
(Most people would prob have mayo too... but i hate it...lol)
Fruit and Veg (fresh)
They're probably the things that are ALWAYS in my house... then I just of course buy what I need.
