Three Kitchenwares to Graduate from your 20’s into your 30’s

Explore your domestic side before you turn the big 3-0. Start by getting your kitchen in order with some essentials that are an upgrade from your basic tools and that helped you survive your 20’s. It’s time to embrace some grownup activities like making your own home cooked meals or making the effort to host your own fabulous dinner parties. Here are the top 3 kitchenware to help you graduate from your 20s into your 30’s.

Two Sets of Wine Glasses

Invest in more than one set of beautiful, adult wineglasses (that way you have room for a few to break… God-forbid). At 30 you should know that there is more than one type of wine glass to be had. Introducing the proper glasses for the proper wine or champagne into your kitchen will make your dinner parties seem a bit more sophisticated and will impress your houseguests. We LOVE Bergdorf Goodman’s Collection. Typically a nice set of both red & white wine glasses will suffice & if you’re feeling fancy pick-up a set of elegant champagne flutes.

Cast Iron Cookware

Good old-fashioned cast iron cookware is often misjudged as being a thing of the past, however, we see it as something that will last for generations. We all know that cooking with cast iron is the best advice our grandmothers ever gave us. Tried and true. The versatile and durable material is perfect for frying and searing on the cooktop and can be tossed into the oven for baking if desired. It is an affordable piece of cookware that can really do it all. Who carries the most fashionable? Check out Williams-Sonoma… we love their modern take on a classic idea!

Slow Cooker (Crock Pot)

When you enter your 30s you’re going to want to do your mom’s mouthwatering chili recipe justice, right? Having a slow cooker in your kitchen is the best place to start. Crate & Barrel has an amazing selection of slow cookers that is definitely worth browsing. A slow cooker is great for soup and stew recipes. You can throw all of the ingredients in at once and let it do its thing while you do yours. Young parents? Even better. We know you juggle making your way up in the workplace & balancing relationships while taking care of your kids! While you don’t have your eye on your slow cooker there is a low chance of burning or scorching your food due to its low cooking heat. It’s a great tool for a multi-tasker who doesn’t have all day to spend slaving over a hot stove.
