Outfit Your First Kitchen for Less than $200

Apartment Experts South Card

Outfitting your first kitchen can be expensive and overwhelming.  Zillow tells you exactly what you'll need to get started cooking in your first apartment and it won't cost more than $200.

 A saute pan is a must, which usually costs around $45.  Choose an all-metal pan so you can use it in the stovetop and oven and one with a heavy bottom so your food won't burn.  As far as knives, you need a sharp 8-inch "stamped" chef's knife, meaning the blade is machine-stamped.  Choose a wood or plastic handle and go ahead and spring for a paring knife while you're at it.  These knives together should cost you about $40 online.

 A stockpot is essential and can be used to make soup or to boil water for pasta or veggies.  You should be able to find a good one for $25.  Throw in a smaller lidded saucepan with a handle for approximately $15.  For $10, you can pick up a cutting board.  Just don't choose glass, stone or anything super hard because the surface isn't good for your knives.

 For $5, get a strainer or colander and a baking sheet and a wire rack for $30 total.  Just be sure your baking sheet will fit in your oven!  Wooden spoons have a whole slew of uses and can be found in sets of three for $15 on the web.  Lastly, pick up a pair of 10-12 inch tongs for $10.  Bon Appetit!
