FS_pchaisThere are tons of lists out there telling you what gadgets and accessories you should have in your kitchen.

Curious to see what a professional would recommend, though, we asked Brad Farmerie, the Michelin-star chef behind PUBLIC, Saxon + Parole, and the GENUINE franchise, about his kitchen must-haves.

Whether you know your way around a kitchen or are a complete cooking novice, you’re bound to get a lot of use out of Farmerie’s recommendations.

A digital scale


“The newest digital scales are inexpensive and measure in both American measurements as well as metric, preferably by the gram,” Farmerie told Business Insider.

“I can hand a recipe off to any cook, and if they use the scale, they will be half way to success!”

A coffee and spice grinder


“Grinding your own whole spices leads to bigger, brighter, better flavors, and allows you to stay away from extra salt,” Farmerie told us.

Ice cube tray


“I use these at home to freeze chicken stock into cubes, then pop them out into plastic bags and keep frozen until needed,” the chef said.

“The same can be done with other things, like coconut milk or fresh herbs – cilantro, parsley, mint all work well. Puree the herbs in a blender with just a little olive oil and freeze them into cubes.”
