Chopping board
A good-quality wooden chopping board will last you years. Essential for nearly every meal, it can also double as a serving platter when entertaining.

Wooden spoon
A rather self-explanatory one, but wooden spoons are essential, especially for use on non-stick surfaces. They are also non-reactive, so no metallic taste will transfer into food when cooking.

Cast iron pot
Another multi-use hero, a cast iron pot can create so many meals on the stove or in the oven. Cast iron retains heat for even cooking, and will also keep meals warm for longer when serving.
