Instant Kitchen Island

October 18, 2010 | By | Comments (0)

Island[1] There are a few key kitchen purchases that have changed my life for the better. A Le Creuset Dutch oven. A Shun Classic santoku knife. Gripper cutting boards. But chief among them is a simple stainless steel prep table. All the equipment in the world won’t help you cook any better if you don’t have room to work comfortably.

Adding an island can be a complicated and expensive endeavor. Will the cabinets and countertops match the ones in the rest of your kitchen? Or will they contrast? Are you going to drill through the floor for water and wiring? How much money is in the checking account?

Far simpler and cheaper: Buying an island. Go to your local restaurant supply store. Buy a stainless steel prep table (they come in a variety of lengths). Open the box, assemble (the only tool you’ll need is a screwdriver or an allen wrench), and put your new island wherever you want.
