In Chinese cooking (or any other cuisine), you can usually use the kitchen tools you already have. But some Chinese recipes do call for specialized tools, such as a claypot casserole. Other items, like a rice cooker or wok just make cooking easier. If you don't already have some of the utensils in this list, head to the cooking supply store — which is always a fun trip!

  • A wok that you've seasoned

  • A sharp chef's knife

  • A cutting board that you keep clean

  • A small spice grinder

  • A steamer

  • A strainer

  • Spatulas and ladles

  • A claypot casserole

  • An electric rice cooker

  • Chopsticks
