For the love of cooking (and baking)

A Listmania! list by Iveta (Vancouver, BC Canada)
The list author says: "I have been cooking and baking for many years, but I did not start enjoying it until I started collecting the right kitchen tools. I realized only then how important it is to have the right equipment. I also like to have beautiful things around me - it does wonders for my willingness to spend my spare time in the kitchen. At this point in my life I LOVE my kitchen. I wish there was a list of the very best equipment when I started buying mine, I would have saved money on some disappointing "mistakes". I have done my "homework" and the following items will not disappoint even the most selective cook."
