When it comes to kitchen tools and utensils, many sets are available, but few come with storage solutions, so you just end up tossing them in the dreaded kitchen drawer. You know the one, the drawer that catches everything but the kitchen sink. Ring a bell? No worries, you're not alone. Having a home built in the 1800s, my kitchen is extremely small in contrast to those in most modern houses. This makes cooking and finding room for all my tools and gadgets a mind-boggling task.

I love to cook, test new recipes, and create new dishes in my tiny kitchen. I own several Pro Chef Kitchen Tool items and they are quickly becoming a favorite of mine for solving storage space issues without sacrificing functionality.

The battle for free space in my kitchen continues daily with small victories every now and then. My dining room often doubles as a prep area for cooking due to the lack of space in our kitchen, especially when I make homemade bread. I always get really excited when I find a kitchen tool or gadget that is a quality item and helps to alleviate some of the stress that comes with my small space issues. That is exactly what I found in this spinning stainless steel utensil stand.

What Is Included in the Set?

I consider this Pro Chef Kitchen Tools 6-Piece Stainless Kitchen Utensils set a super great buy for the price. You literally get one of everything you could need for preparing pretty much any dish you can imagine. This set includes:

  • Two spatulas (different styles)
  • Pasta spoon
  • Soup ladle
  • Large slotted frying spoon (deep frying, etc.)
  • Basic spoon
  • Spinning storage rack
  • Two polishing cloths

The polishing cloths are very handy for any stainless appliances you may have at home as well as for buffing out any water spots that show up on these kitchen utensils. The spinning rack provides ultimate convenience in my opinion. Instead of trying to remember where I put my tools, they are conveniently located on top of my counter, and with a simple spin, I can find anything I need.

Being a southern family, we do make a great deal of fried chicken, fritters and—well—lots of other unhealthy fried foods. The large frying slotted spoon has been heaven-sent, especially when preparing fried chicken for gatherings.

Sometimes, without adequate tools, you find yourself fishing in oil to try and get your chicken out. With a large amount of chicken going in the fry at once, you usually end up with a few pieces that are a tad overdone by the time you get them all out. This large slotted spoon makes quick work of dipping out any items you're frying right when they reach that perfect golden brown crispiness!

I use each and every utensil in this set all the time. I used to have plastic utensils and some silicone ones, but now I prefer using my stainless tools for almost every task.

Initial Impressions

I was immediately impressed with how easily I was able to assemble the spinning rack and get it set up. It arrived well-packaged and included a small pamphlet on how to care for the stainless steel cooking tools.

This set of kitchen tools is very sleek and modern. Perhaps it's a miss-match for our laid back country decor, but I concern myself more with function than matching decor in our spaces. The spinning rack takes up very little space, which is a plus for me since I am very limited on space for anything in my kitchen. Our two-foot butcher block gets a lot of use, so I need something that suits our needs without eating up our prep space.

A Practical Product

This set of stainless steel tools is both multi-functional and practical in my opinion. Storage is taken care of, so I no longer have to fumble in that mess of a drawer to find the correct tool I need for the recipe at hand. These tools are large and very durable. These double as our grill tools. With the spinning stand, we are able to take the entire rack out to the grill area and have our tools remain organized as we prepare our meals. During the summer, this old house gets very hot, so we almost exclusively grill during those months unless we have unseasonably cool weather or storms roll in.

This set is practical. It offers tools for almost all dishes you would prepare, and they're all stored neatly on a spinning rack. If you are just starting out in your first home or apartment, I highly recommend this set. The set is stainless steel, so it is built to last. Instead of investing in cheap plastic kitchen tools, it is worth struggling for a bit to save up to splurge on this set.

There was obviously some thought put into the overall design. The holes that go on the hooks over the rack are never going to break, so you will never have an issue with not being able to store them away. I much prefer this set to a plastic one as well. Ever melted a spatula? I have—and more times than I care to admit. Not that I am not paying attention when I cook, but stuff happens sometimes in a small cramped kitchen like mine. With this set, you do not have to worry that leaving a spatula close to the stove is going to result in a plastic melted goo mess.

Final Rating: 5 out 5 Stars

This six-piece stainless steel kitchen tool set by Pro Chef Kitchen Tools is a great buy for function and is also a space-saving storage option. I have had it for a few years now, and I still use it daily with no complaints. It is dishwasher safe, and the cloths make buffing out any water spots a breeze.

It's a great buy for anyone looking to eliminate that crazy drawer in their kitchen or to make the most out of a small kitchen. Even if you are just looking for some great grill tools, this set makes a great choice as they will withstand extreme temperatures without any integrity issues. I highly recommend this set as an investment. It is not a tool you will have to replace—they were designed to last and last.

This set has you covered for cooking as well as all your serving needs. The sleek modern design integrates seamlessly into most kitchens. The spinning rack is small enough that you can even keep it in the smallest of corners in your kitchen or in a cabinet if you prefer. This busy mom who loves to cook rates them a five-star product all the way.

A great item for the kitchen. When you have limited space like we do, my wife would be happy with that stainless steel stand with the utensils.
