These are the kitchen tools you need for 2016.

Cooking is like a science — you have to keep chicken in the oven for a certain amount of time, steak can quickly over cook, and not all pots and pans transfer from stovetop to oven. You have to figure out what products work best for you. We have a few that will definitely make you a better cook in 2016.

Cast Iron Skillet

A cast iron skillet is heavy-bottomed and has even heat conduction. The best part is that you can start your meal on the stove top and finish it in the oven. The nonstick coating on the pan makes it great for fried chicken, eggs, and fish. You can even make dessert. For fried foods, you’ll get the crispiness you desire on the outside and a juicy inside. When it comes to desserts, you can make bread pudding, cakes, and so much more.

Digital Scale

When you bake, do you measure everything with your measuring cup or spoons? Make your life easier in 2016 with a digital scale. It’ll make your measurements precise so your cakes, brownies, and bread will come out perfectly.

Instant Read Digital Thermometer

Do you find that sometimes you overcook steak and undercook chicken? We have a simple solution for you: Buy an instant read digital thermometer. It’ll tell you the internal temperature of your meat so you don’t over or undercook it. Your meals will come out perfect every time.

Y-Shaped Peeler

While the traditional swivel peeler gets the job done you should upgrade to a Y-shaped peeler. It’s very easy to handle and you will have great leverage when peeling veggies like zucchini.
