At-Home Kitchen Tips: Lessons in Utility

Though a chef’s at-home kitchen might conjure up visions of a high-tech food lab with commercial-grade appliances and stainless steel surfaces, the reality looks slightly different.  The most consistently desired feature in many chefs’ kitchens — an open floor plan — has less to do with replicating a commercial kitchen, and is more about making cooking a communal, accessible experience.  Top Chefs share their tips for making a home kitchen work efficiently:

— Airtight glass jars on the kitchen counter allow for immediate access to the most-used spices.

— An open floor plan is critical when you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, so guests can interact with the chef.

— Bring the outdoors inside with large windows or doors to outside.
