Besides an assortment of pots and pans and bake ware for me must have kitchen tools include good quality sharp knives, wooden spoons, slotted metal spoon, wire whisks, mandolin, spatula, rubber spatula, good pair of tongs, scale for baking, heavy duty stand mixer, a colander, a box grater and a rasp grater.

I'm sure tha I have forgotten a few...

For me, all of the above, except the mixer. I am not allowed to bake.
The one tool I picked up before the holidays last year is my lemon squeezer. It has turned out to be invaluable to me with all the catering I do. Take a whole lemon & put in the microwave for 10 seconds, roll the lemon on your cutting board. (This makes the lemon easier to juice). Quarter the lemon and put 1 quarter at a time in the squeezer. Lots of juice and zero pits in your recipe.

An immersion blender. We don't use it often, but when we do, it's an incredibly useful tool.

A coffee grinder. Coffee tastes so much better if the beans are ground within minutes of the hot water hitting them.

A rice cooker. It's so nice to be able to dump the rice (white or brown) in with the water, push the button, and then ignore it while you do all the rest of the food prep and cooking.

Sieves in various sizes. A colander is great, but sometimes we need the finer holes in a sieve, and sometimes we need a smaller one or a larger one.

A large bookshelf to store all of our cookbooks, which currently number close to 100!

Im a total minimalist:

Wooden spoon selection
Large knife
Copper Bowl
Pyrex measuring cup


Skillet with glass lid
Lg pot (2)
Md pot
Sm pot
Broiler Pan
Baking dish

I mix and mash and measure spoons by manpower alone!

;p

Many things can be faked but there is absolutely no substitute for a good, sharp knife and the means to keep it that way.

Internet access is becoming a close second

Surprised that nobody's mentioned kitchen shears; these can be more useful than a knife for many applications.
