With web sites like Pinterest and bloggers swirling around the Internet posting their creative kitchen ideas and décor tips, it’s hard not to run out to the store and buy everything we’re seeing from every ingredient to an incredible soufflé recipe to the charming ramekins they’re baked in.
Now we can’t help you with which chocolate chips or powdered sugar to buy, but we can certainly help with all those adorable (and not particularly essential) kitchen tools. Although these extra gadgets are never a necessity, we believe they’re absolute must-have’s for the kitchen connoisseur. We’ve rounded up a handful of sleek and modern, small accessories that not only work great but add a tiny special touch to the space.
