I'm very new to cooking and want to substitute the conventional ways for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So instead of regular oatmeal you buy at the store. I want to make my own Primal/Paleo based oatmeal. I just don't know what kind of kitchen tools I will need to make these meals possible. I'm very new to cooking. My wife is the cook in our household and she does a great job at it.

So if you have any recommendations for great kitchen tools that will reduce my time in cooking. I'd like to hear it. This is not only for tools that will make cooking faster and easier. Also general kitchen tools as well. Thanks.
