Kitchen supply staples you need to have on hand

When most people think about kitchen supply staples, they think about the dishes and the silverware, maybe the pots and pans. But there are some smaller items that can really make the difference in making sure you have the things that you need, whether you plan to cook for a fancy dinner party or just order food for the family to be delivered.

The items in this list are important to have on hand at any time. These supplies range from a cutting board to make sure that you can chop some fruit for your child’s snack to a paper towel holder for those times when things get messy in the kitchen. Here are the things you need to make sure that you are ready for the next meal that you cook (or just heat up) in the kitchen.

If you are setting up a kitchen for the first time, these supplies should be first on the list, even before you purchase any pots and pans. They are essential even if you get most of your meals delivered, and they elevate the space with their beauty and simplicity.

A great salt and pepper set adds the spice that you need for scrumptious dishes, and a cutting board and a pot holder can help in a pinch even if you are just whipping up some snacks for the kids. A beautiful serving tray gets your kitchen ready for guests, and of course you can’t forget to have a paper towel holder ready for you to clean up those messes. These supplies are the basics that can take your kitchen beyond basic to beautiful.
