The kitchen has long been the heartbeat of the home, a place where family and friends gather for memorable meals and engaging conversation.
For foodies and those who enjoy the fruits of their culinary creativity, cooking is more than a meal. It’s a craft, a pastime, and a way to explore other cultures and cuisines.
Consider Bering’s your passport to all things culinary with our selection of pots, pans, appliances, and kitchen essentials. Ready to embark on a new gastronomic adventure? Read on for what’s new and needed in the kitchen.
For the Bakers
Sourdough had its moment in 2020, but now bakers are moving beyond bread and back into the land of sweets — particularly three-dimensional cakes that look almost too beautiful to slice, checkered desserts like a Battenberg or marble, and coffee and tea-infused cakes and cookies.
Pinterest searches indicate bakers are ready to push the envelope and embrace next-level deliciousness and to do that successfully, you need the proper tools.
It may seem basic, but measuring cups and spoons are absolute essentials that serve bakers and at-home chefs alike. OXO Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons and cups give you the perfect measure and pour every time. Round out your baking arsenal with OXO Whisk and Silicone Pastry Brush, and you’ll be ready for every recipe.
The right pan makes all the difference when baking, so we suggest the OXO’s Nonstick Pro Cake Pan for an even bake every time. Its micro-textured pattern and straight sidewalls mean a uniform cake, so it will look as good as it tastes.
Another favorite is the USA Pans Half Sheet which is coated with a patented non-stick silicone, allowing you to easily release your baked goods from the pan. Its unique fluted design facilitates air circulation and maximizes pan strength to help resist warping.
For the Grillers
Carnivores, unite! We know you’ve been counting down until the official start of grilling season, so before you fire up the Bog Green Egg, pick up a Taylor Precision Instant Read Meat Thermometer with a range of zero to 220 degrees. The OXO Meat Tenderizer is another meat must-have, ideal for tenderizing or pounding steaks and chops.
If you’d prefer your steak sous vide, the Zwilling Enfinigy Sous Vide Stick is an excellent entry into the sous vide world. Sous vide is a cooking technique that uses gentle water bath cooking under a vacuum seal to achieve precise temperatures in your finished product. Sous vide cooking is ideal for prepping meals in advance, so you have flexibility while cooking.
For the Gadget Gurus
So many of us simply can’t resist the lure of a good kitchen gadget or appliance. From coffee makers to pressure cookers, we’re just as crazy for appliances that allow us to cook creatively and efficiently.
Start the day strong with the Smeg 50’s Style Coffee Machine that blends 50’s aesthetic of post-war design with modern technology. The Zojirushi Micom Toaster Oven is a wonder, taking toast to new heights while also giving you the freedom of 12 Micro-Computerized Cooking Functions including baking, roasting, broiling, and timed toasting.
When it comes to mixing it up, look to brands like Cuisinart, Breville, and Vitamix for a variety of blenders, hand mixers, and food processors. There’s no job too large or small these appliances can’t handle.
Make your time in the kitchen even more efficient with the Cuisinart Slow Cooker and let this ceramic cooking pot housed in stylish stainless steel do all the heavy lifting. Short on time, but looking for big flavor? Breville Fast Slow Pro Pressure Cooker is your new BFF. This multicooker features pressure and slow cook menus that automatically adjust time, temperature, and pressure between fast and slow cooking.
For the Home Chefs
So, you have all the ingredients but lack the proper dishes. What does that mean for the recipe’s final taste? Every kitchen needs a stockpot, cast-iron skillet, and a Dutch Oven. Look no further than Staub, Field Company and Le Creuset for these foundational pots and dishes. These are modern makes featuring non-stick technology, smart lids to ensure moisture, and a high-temperature resistance so you know they will last.
Of course, no self-respecting home cook would be without a proper knife, so upgrade your cutlery with the Zwilling Pro 8″ Traditional Chef’s Knife. The unique blade shape and ergonomic bolster combine safety with a keen cut for both Western and Asian chopping methods.
When was the last time you took stock of your kitchen tools? It’s likely time for an upgrade to either replace old tools or add new ones.
Scoop up all the goodness with the OXO Wooden Corner Spoon or Good Grips Wooden Turner. The Good Grips Turner is made from one-piece beech wood, and designed for comfort and utility, and its distinctive straight-sided shape allows better reach along walls and in corners of cookware. If crepes and burgers are among your favorite things to whip up, the OXO Silicone Flexible Turner is a must. You get the strength of stainless steel coupled with the heat resistance and non-stick friendliness of a silicone outer layer.
Other tools worth adding to your utensil drawers include the OXO Ice Cream Scoop (yay ice cream!), Tongs With Nylon Heads for easy pickup and a Swivel Peeler. Add some matchy-matchy vibes with the Jade Danica Heirloom Stonewashed Apron and cactus green kitchen towels. The ultra slim digital scale is another kitchen go-to for those seeking exact portion control or to achieve precise measuring.
No matter what you’re cooking up in the kitchen, we’re serving up the very best for breakfast, lunch, dinner and all noshes in between.
