Kitchen utensils for the macrobiotic diet
You may need to purchase some kitchen utensils when you start cooking macrobiotic foods for your family. Actually, you can get extremely delicious dishes with the right pots. Some items can be purchased early on, while others can only be purchased along the way. Many of these kitchen utensils will help you save a lot of time and energy in the kitchen.
First of all, you have the pressure cooker, which is one of the most important cookware when it comes to macrobiotic dishes. This pot is made of steel and can be used daily to prepare cereals and vegetables or other types of food. If you buy a five-liter pot, this will be enough for a family of six members and you have a variety of models to choose from.
Then, you have different bowls and pots, the steel ones being recommended for daily use. Sometimes cast iron pots are great for frying. Conversely, pots made of aluminum and other non-stick materials are not recommended. Aluminum is directly absorbed into food and sticky materials or plastics are very easy to scratch, mixing with the food you cook.
Last but not least, you have the tools and covers. We strongly recommend that you use natural wood tools, which are very cheap and durable. You should start with the soup ladles and so on. You can use metal covers when eating, although many people prefer wooden or ceramic ones.
