If there’s anyone who knows their way around a kitchen and around food, it has to be a chef. So when talking about go-to appliances, who better to give us a first-hand account of kitchen dependables than someone whose passion revolves around it. Popular on the food network and the food scene in town, we get chatty with some of the top chefs of our days.

An oven.

Why?

My oven is my oldest friend in my kitchen. We know how each other behaves. I know for a fact and trust that whatever I put into my oven will come out delectable.

Dynamix immersion blender.

Why?

I find the Dynamix immersion blender a very convenient tool, a must-have for any pastry chef. I love it because it is great for mashing fruits and a lovely tool to blend in fat and water while making a nut butter. It helps create homogeneous emulsions such as fruit compotes, and with respect to molecular gastronomy, it is the main tool to create foams, bubbles and air.

Nespresso coffee maker.

Why?

My days are normally 14 hours long, which includes working at my kitchen, looking at finances and working out! Having a cup of Nespresso coffee really helps, as I can make my coffee however I want, and at anytime I want it! It’s the best investment I’ve made.

A stand mixer.

Why?

The amount of things that can be done with it is amazing. I use it to beat eggs and make pasta dough. The attachments that the machine has is amazing. One can even make different shapes of pasta in it.

Induction stove.

Why?

I love how quickly the induction stove can heat up and allow me to get a beautiful char on meats and vegetables, or how it can be turned down low to let soups, stews and sauces simmer. I make a lot of jams and preserves with seasonal ingredients which need to be cooked for long periods of time without burning. My stove also has a child lock on it to ensure no little hands fidget with the settings.
