Cast Iron Skillet
You can make a full diner breakfast in a cast iron skillet, from fried eggs and bacon to pancakes and hash browns. And there really isn't anything more classic than a signature Le Creuset cast iron skillet, which comes in a variety of colors depending on your taste. ($160, Le Creuset)
A stovetop griddle, like this one from Sur La Table, is great of making large batches of bacon or panckes—because sometimes, a cast iron pan is too small. According to one commenter, this griddle can handle cooking a pound of bacon at a time, which is how you know it'll be able to handle your home bacon needs. ($69.95, Sur La Table)
A high-powered blender is a must-have in your kitchen if you're into making smoothies or sauces. And if you get a Vitamix, you can even use it to make juices or pulverize almonds. It's one of those multipurpose tools for which you'll always be able to find a use. ($248.96, Amazon)
If you like making French toast, or just eating bread in general, you'll want a sharp, high-quality bread knife for your kitchen. A good bread knife is about ten inches long with a serrated edge, which will make sawing through thick bread easy. ($54.95, Williams-Sonoma)
