Many of us know someone who just graduated from college. Way to go, class of 2012! If he or she is about to move into a new place of their own, odds are the kitchen will be completely understocked. This is where you come in as the heroic gift giver! Here are some of the most basic, inexpensive pieces of kitchen gear to help wean the grad off the dining hall buffet habit.
The items in Kenji's Kitchen Starter Kit are designed to be inexpensive, functional, and adequate to comfortably help someone cook for one or two people at a time. You can get everything in this kit for $156.74, or if you include the extra-nice-kids gift a grand total of around $306.73.
