Cook Like A Master Chef: 5 Kitchen Essentials


One of the great things about creating a gift registry is having the opportunity to upgrade your kitchen tools. Ditch the hand-me-downs you’ve been making do with since college and get cooking with beautiful new cookware, appliances and gadgets. Here are 5 kitchen essentials from JCPenney that will have you spending more quality time in the kitchen with outstanding results.

1. Good-looking cooking
Spice things up in the kitchen with Cuisinart’s Chef’s Classic 11-piece stainless steel cookware set. Made of premium stainless steel with a pure aluminum encapsulated base for quick and even heat distribution, it offers great performance on a stovetop, in the oven or under a broiler.
2. There’s an app-liance for that
Cuisinart’s line up of countertop appliances will get you from coffee and waffles in the morning to a gourmet dinner party at night.  Shown here are just a few: the easy-to-use Cuisinart® Juice Extractor CJE-1000 for fresh, nutritious beverages; the iconic Cuisinart® food processor (model shown is the Prep 9™); and  the Rice Cooker/Steamer.

3. Any way you cut it
As all chefs will tell you, a good set of knives is an absolute must. J.A. Henckels is a brand name synonymous with durability and quality. This heavy-duty, 16-piece set includes every kind of knife you could possibly need.
