Rachael's last pick is a necessity for every kitchen—especially if you use nonstick pots and pans.
6. Wood spoon
Wood spoons, unlike those made of stainless steel and other materials, don't scratch cookware. The "Lazy Spoon" (www.woodspoons.com) is notched to rest on the edge of your pot. Drips stay in the pan and there's no need for a spoon holder! "Is that the coolest thing ever or what?" Rachael says.
