    Get a decent 10" chefs and forget the POS serrated slicer. And don't get POS knives like these with a balluster. After you become proficient it will be in the way so much as to render the knife useless.

    I wish he'd put something with electric stoves. I'm a renter and terrified of renting with an electric stove. I'm not even sure you can cook (efficiently) on them. I was hoping he'd have a video showing how.

    Disagree about the frying pan Ramsey. Instead of a non stick frying pan you should go with a cast iron one. Non stick coatings have harmful chemicals that can create vapors or be absorbed into the food.

    Gordon Ramsay, you mentioned that on the chopping board any cooking oil will do for maintenance. However, a lot of folks in youtube has said not to use cooking oil as it will go rancid. What are you thoughts on that? I bought a freshly cut Chinese Iron Chopping block of 3in by 16in, since i've been using plastic chopping board for awhile. Thanks!

    I'd add a cast iron griddle to the pans. Easily the best kitchen investment I've ever made. Even plain chicken breasts with no seasoning end up tasting terrific with those sear lines.

    Great stainless steal pots an high end knives, two cutting boards one for protein one for veg an ready to eat food(always wash sanitize before an after) keep hands clean wash after touching protein an before working with veg\ready to eat foods. Always measonplase(hope I didn't mess that word up. The greatest feeling a chef can receive is happy foodies who want to come back.

    Break the bank...? I agree that good tools make the job easier but in order to get the equipment shown in the video, I'd have to OWN THE BANK....:) Right on the idea though, get a couple good pans, one or two solid knifes, a good cutting board and your're off to a good start.

    It would be good to tell people, Chef, that we don't really need nonstick pans. "Hot pan, cold oil, food won't stick..." and food will release itself when it's ready, just don't poke at it till it self releases. Nonstick can't go in the oven. It eventually scratches up.
    And as a wildlife rehabilitator, I can tell you that nonstick pans asphyxiate pet birds and parrots. I get calls every year from people referred by veterinarian offices in the middle of the night, who weren't burning their food but killed their parrots. It's heartbreaking and so unnecessary, it happens at normal cooking temps on the stove. Please, those chemicals aren't good for you... no nonstick! He's right, just get the best, heaviest stainless or cast iron or enameled cast iron. Develop skills like Chef has, and you won't need those unnecessary "improvements."
    I usually live by "simple and elegant is always better." Chef, you make me feel validated. I've always said those three are the only knives I need... and, humorously, the serrated bread knife I've used for over 45 years is just a cheap, stainless, Ecko knife I picked up at Walmart in 1972! Really! It still cuts tomatoes and bread flawlessly. But my other two are a good brand. I never could use my steel the way you do. Years ago. I bought a Chef's Choice three-slot electric sharpener, and it's one of the best gizmos I've ever gotten. Makes knifework so pleasurable!

      And also, I've never like those little citrus juice squeezers, they hurt my hands. I just put half a lemon/lime between my bacon tongs and squeeze from both sides, and then ream out the rest with a simple wooden reamer.

    I don’t see a spatter screen in this set of tools. It is my favourite. Not only does it keep the kitchen cleaner when cooking spattery foods, but also it is super for keeping some humidity in the pan when frying things that can dry out, without making them soggy. I also use it with a lid when I want to steam off extra moisture, such as when cooking a sauce or stew. Better than just trying to balance the lid off centre. And most importantly, it takes up no space to store and cleans with just hot water and a soapy scrubbing pad.
