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."

No knife is complete without a sturdy cutting board to use it on! This wood cutting board from Drummond's collection is perfect for chopping, slicing, dicing and more. (And when you're done cooking, learn how to clean your cutting board.)

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.

Wooden Spoons

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.
