We asked some of our favourite home cooks about their favourite kitchen tools that have truly improved their culinary game. The answers may surprise you!

A cast iron skillet is more versatile than many people realize

CAST IRON SKILLET

"I use my cast iron skillet regularly," says Leslie of ALifeWellConsumed.com in Vancouver. It's my staple for peach cobblers. You can make almost anything in it and the more you use it, the more the natural seasoning improves. All cooks should have one in their kitchen."

The XO Bakers Decorating Tool Kit gives you control others don't

BAKERS DECORATING TOOLS

Jackie of NYC's GlutenFreeFollowMe.com loves her OXO Baker Decorating Tool. "The unique design gives you control to create precise decorating. It allows you to create more beautiful cupcakes (or one of my favorites Avocado Chocolate Mousse!) in less time than it takes with a knife. It will make you look like a baking pro!"

A digital scale takes the guess work out of conversions

DIGITAL SCALE

Val behind The Experimental Approach in Calgary says, "My Cuisinart Digital Scale has made baking so much easier. Living at a higher altitude can cause all sorts of issues when baking. Ever since getting this scale, my breads (cheesy dill bread and pretzel buns are two of my faves!) turn out amazing. I also find a lot of British recipes use weighted measurements, so it's just that much easier. No conversions needed!"

Any Le Creuset piece is a classic

LE CREUSET FRENCH OVEN

Rizwan from Chocolates & Chai has a particular love for his Le Creuset French Oven. "You can just make everything in it, and I do. I use it for everything from pot roasts to baking desserts. It's one of the most versitile pots you can buy. Use it on the stove, in the oven... And if you run out of cabinet space, it's beautiful to display on the stove!" For anyone wondering the difference between a French Oven and a Dutch Oven - a French Oven is simply type of Dutch Oven, that's covered in enamel.
