For Grouping

This list of kitchen utensils is offered by Good Housekeeping Institute as a guide for those who are equipping their first kitchen and also for those who are adding to or replacing some of their present equipment. Wares are not specified, as those using the list may have a preference for certain wares or may wish to use several different wares according to the type of equipment. Capacities of saucepans may also have to be changed to meet individual needs, and other changes in the list will no doubt be made for the same reason. No large equipment such as worktable, range, sink, or service wagon is included on this list, nor have we included equipment for cleaning.....
