THE ONLY THING A SINGLE DUDE NEEDS IN THE KITCHEN TO COOK

Single dudes out there! I Chef Ron will teach you that the only thing you will ever need in your kitchen to cook a good meal for your sorry ass self, and possibly a pretty girl you hooked up with, the one that your buds will go, "Her? She likes you dude?" Yep her.

Anyhow, I'll tell you what tools you will need, and why. And here is the tools, don't ask me any questions, just do what I say okay? Good Junior…good… just shut your trap and listen up.

First of all if you have a stove, great. It's probably either of two styles, one is the electric stove run by electricity of course, the other is a gas stove run by natural gas. Either or, it works because a stove does heat up stuff.

Now let's get into pots and pans, and I'll tell you what right now you should need.

Number one: A nonstick 10" pan. This pan is made to cook foods on the stove top, and because it is nonstick, you won't need lots of fats or oils to cook your food making it a healthy tool to cook..healthy. This pan can fry your eggs what ever way you like em, over easy, scrambled, as an omelette, you get the pic.

Also, you can use this pan as a stir fry tool, instead of a wok, you can use it for stir frying Asian foods. You can use it to sauté other stuff like onions, mushrooms, and even fry a steak or burgers, or even fried chicken. This pan is all you will need, just don't scrub it with a wire brush. Simply soak it in warm soapy water to remove stuck on food particles.

Number two: Get at least 1 4 quart saucepan with a lid, you can make soups in this, or stews, or chili, and it's a great vessel to bake in too, eliminating baking pans. Just fill it with your favorite cake mix and stick it in the oven.

Number three: a 3 1/4" Pairing knife to peel and section small fruits for salads, a vegetable peeler to peel potatoes, carrots and whatever, at least an 8" chefs knife for all around slicing, chopping, mincing of foods. A pair of tongs to turn foods that are hot.

Number 4: An electric rice cooker to cook rice, and to cook other foods that need steaming, great for reheating foods if you don't like microwave ovens.

Number 5: An electric toaster, a small coffee maker, and some plates, and forks, spoons, steak knives etc.

Number 6: Mixing bowls, and storage containers to store your leftover foods in the fridge.

10" NONSTICK FRY PAN
Notice the metal handles, great if you need to finish a dish in the oven up to 350dg F.
8" CHEFS KNIFE
This is from Forschner and very reasonably priced at around 30 to 40 dollars and found in many professional chef and prep cooks bags.
4 QUART STAINLESS STEEL SAUCEPAN WITH LID
An inexpensive one from Walmart will do, it holds a gallon of liquid, way too much for a single dude, but it is a great tool to have to make soups, stews, and of course sauces. I use mine to deep fry tempura on a small scale. You can get one for about 30-50 dollars.

There you have it, and the other tools you know how it looks..just wanted to give an idea of the main cooking tools you will need on the stove. Until next time.
