Here at Kitchn, we’re not only on the lookout for new cookware, tools, and gadgets to improve your cooking routine, but we’re also always trying sauces, spices, condiments, coffee, and more to find what will be the best addition to your pantry.
Over the past year, we’ve featured tons of items from editor-favorite food brands like Fly By Jing, Brightland, Omsom, and more that have inspired us in the kitchen. It can be as simple as a splash of vinegar that lights up a dish or as foundational as a meal starter kit with all the sauces and spices you need to transform your dinnertime routine. We also frequently featured beverages that made our days just a little bit better — especially lots of coffee!
Ahead, we’ve rounded up our 10 favorite pantry essentials from 2021 that we’re planning on bringing with us into the new year and beyond.
