No kitchen is set without your basic utentils. Whether you're frying a quick egg for breakfast, whipping up a batch of brownies or cooking a complete Thanksgivng meal, these classic utensils, including spatulas, tongs, potato mashers and more, are essential. There are a lot of options, though, and deciding which set is best for you can feel daunting.

When buying a kitchen utensil set, you want to start by considering your cookware. If you're cooking with nonstick cookware, silicone and wood utensils are a great option. For easy cleanup, we recommend silicone, and for a stronger utensil that will scrape food with ease, wood is a great option.

You also want to thiink about what all you need. Some sets come with everything from ice cream scoops and cheese graters to bottle openers and pizza cutters. Others include your basic spatulas and spoons. Whether you need a complete overhaul of gear or just need a few upgrades can help determine which set is right for you.


Coming in six different color options, this complete cooking set is perfect for anyone trying to stick with a design aesthetic in their home. The 17-piece set includes silicone tongs, spatulas, a soup ladle, pasta server, slotted spoon, a cheese grater and more. Plus, you can keep everything organized in a matching holder.
