This section is for anything you use to get started and prepare your food.

Knives, vegetable peeler, chopping board and graters, amongst other things, are the main items you will use to get your food ready for the most important stage – the cooking.


You are going to need pots and pans in all different shapes and sizes, for all different kinds of foods and sauces.

You can also include a toaster in this area.
