1. Good quality tools
Whether we’re talking about power tools or kitchen tools, you want the best items you can afford if you’ll be using them regularly.
Thin pots and dull knives will have you running to the takeout line rather than cooking at home. Anemic power drills and flimsy hand tools will leave you cursing and make your weekend projects all that more of a chore.
If you need an item for a one-time use, you can probably get by with a cheaper version, although renting might make even more sense in some cases.
