The Noil Kitchen | Tools I Use



The kitchen tools described on this page are the ones I use in my own kitchen and enjoy most. Some of these tools have been in use for over twenty years. I like longevity in a tool particularly in the tools that matter the most like the knife, the cutting board and the main cookware. 

When you link to products, those links may be affiliate links. If you click on any of those affiliate links and make a purchase within a certain time frame, I’ll earn a small commission. The commission is paid by the retailers, at no cost to you. For example, if you link to my favorite knife on Amazon, and you click on that link and complete an Amazon purchase within the next 24 hours, I may receive a commission of around 5 to 10% of your order. The payment comes from Amazon, not from you. I link to products and retailers that I use myself and can comfortably recommend. Money earned helps keep The Noil Kitchen running. Thank you for your support.
