Kitchen Tools Set
During the Middle Ages, cooking took place over open fires, and kitchen tools were typically made of clay, iron, or bronze. Pots, pans, and cauldrons were commonly used, along with knives, spoons, skewers, and scissors. Bellows, mortars, hooks, and portable trivets were also prevalent in kitchens of that era.
The Renaissance period witnessed a slight expansion in the range of kitchen utensils. Scales, tongs, roasting forks, sieves, and metal grids for grilling became more commonly available.
The Industrial Revolution in the 18th century brought about improvements in existing materials, leading to enhanced quality of utensils. The advancement in transportation facilitated the availability of fresh fish in inland cities, contributing to the growth of the middle class and an increased interest in gastronomic culture. This, in turn, resulted in the introduction of novel kitchen utensils.
In the 19th century, the variety of materials used in kitchen utensils expanded, ranging from copper and wrought iron pots to utensils made from various other materials.
The tradition of valuing the art of cooking has been passed down through generations as a cherished legacy. Utensils of high value continue to be crafted, employing handcrafted techniques that ensure the pieces maintain a high degree of purity.
