5 Kitchen Tools That Ree Drummond Loves
A Nakiri-Style Knife
Drummond says, "I have to have a great knife and cutting board!" And while there are plenty of styles to choose from, Drummond opts for a nakiri-style signature knife, which has a straight, symmetrical edge. This classic Japanese-style knife is Drummond's "go-to piece of cutlery."
A Cutting Board
All-Purpose Slotted Spatula
A spatula is a handy tool when it comes to sautéing, flipping and more. For Drummond, this tool comes in handy whenever she makes her go-to weeknight dinner, which consists of a pan-fried protein and a side of stir-fried veggies.
An easy slow-cooker meal is perfect for any weeknight, and it comes in handy for Drummond and her family on the ranch. Drummond's collection features plenty of gorgeous floral slow cookers that would look great on any table.
Drummond says, "you can't beat a canister of old tried-and-true wooden spoons," and we couldn't agree more. A wooden spoon is great for using with a cast-iron skillet or Dutch oven as it won't scratch the surface.
