Remember those days when you never saw men in the kitchen on TV? That’s been long over—wake up! Men can run and rule a kitchen against the best of them; we’re not just stuck to the outdoor grill. Between fantastic cutlery, top-of-the-line pots and pans, and how to craft the perfect cup of java, there’s nothing that a man—properly outfitted with the right tools—is incapable of accomplishing in the kitchen. Roll up some sushi; cut a chili like Gordon Ramsey; you don’t need a sous chef—you need the right kitchen gadgets and tools to get the job done. Let them think an army of professional chefs created the meal; we all know who the real MVP is.

16. Menu Bottle Grinder
