12. Food Mill
A hand-cranked food mill is handy for pureeing soups and sauces, as well as for removing the seeds and pits from cooked tomatoes and other vegetables.
Look for one with three removable disks rather than the common one-piece variety. This will allow you to make purees of different consistencies.
13. Food Processor
The modem electric food processor has been both a blessing and a curse for those who love to cook. I find that it severs the physical connection to ingredients. However, that said. I do possess a small food processor that I use for creaming tofu and making custards, mousses, and other smooth, savory dips and spreads.
14. New Lasting Knives
More than any other tool, a knife connects the cook to the food. Learning to use a knife properly is similar to learning how to write. A properly honed and maintained knife is the essential instrument by which you will inscribe your personality, thoughts, and feelings on most of the foods that you cook, eat, and share. Any experienced cook will have his or her favorite knives.
Knives forged from carbon steel used to be considered state-of-the-art and are excellent but for the fact that they can rust and stain. Stainless-steel knives will not rust or stain; however, they are very difficult to sharpen and tend to dull quickly. Most chefs use knives made from high-carbon steel, a blend of carbon steel and stainless steel that gives a great, sharp edge without the rust.

15. Modern Knife Sharpener
There is no point in owning a good set of knives without having the tools to keep them sharp. If you properly maintain your knives, everything will feel right and your hands will be able to move with a lightness and freedom that is impossible with a dull edge.
A sharp blade is also safer since dull knives will not glide through the fibers and tissues of food without some degree of clumsy, forceful exaggeration. The tough, shiny peels of fruits and vegetables are especially treacherous to cut with a dull edge since they can cause the knife to slip and wound the cook.
I always keep a steel handy and use it to touch up the blade every time I cook. A sharpening stone will hone and reconstruct the edge when it has become too dull to revive on the steel—I use one every an old-fashioned whetstone that requires oil (better whetstone that uses water for lubrication
