An Epic Guide to Culinary Tools

By | source:Fast Company Aug 1st, 2015

I came here with the humble intention of finding an infographic about types of forks, but when I saw this epic guide to culinary tools, I knew this was what I was really looking for.

I would love to get this printed eight feet tall so I can paper a wall in my kitchen with it, although I own a rough 12% of the items listed. I wasn’t even aware that you could “rice” potatoes, let alone that there’s a specific tool for it. My parents’ random utensil drawer is suddenly a lot less mystifying.

There is one issue I have with this chart, though. I have a friend who calls rubber spatulas “rubber policemen.” This is a fairly hilarious and clearly superior name that everyone should adopt it immediately. If I wasn’t so lazy, I would contact the creator of this infographic and inform them of the update.

Here’s a conversion guide for all the stuff you chop, grind, grate, and otherwise prepare with this junk.

Are you a collector of kitchen implements? How many of these splendiferous tools do you have?
