The Otto Wilde grill
“The Otto Wilde grill is by far the best grill I have ever used. It heats from the top grill to amazing temperatures (1,500 degrees Fahrenheit) that you simply can’t get with a normal grill or oven. It’s what gives the steak that nice burn to trap those amazing juices. It can be used for anything – fish, poultry, fruits, vegetables – but of course my favorites are perfect T-bones, ribeyes and porterhouses.

Victorinox Swiss Army Fibrox Pro Curved Breaking Knife
“Knives are very important in butchery. Maybe the more important tool. I developed my own set of knives with Victorinox Swiss Army to give me that perfect slice, and also the balance, since I’m so tall. They look like small swords, so it’s hard to get through airport security with them, but seriously, they’re the only knives we use at Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors.

GreenPan Levels Non-Stick Ceramic Frying Pans
“At home, I use an induction cooker because, firstly, it’s safer for my children, but also because it heats the pan more evenly than any other type of burner. I like GreenPan because they coat it with Thermolon, a non-toxic ceramic coating to ensure it’s nonstick, but without the toxic chemicals found in other nonstick pans. And they can be used on all types of stovetops – induction, gas, electric, etc.

Gaggenau cooker hood
“When you’re a butcher, you cook a lot of meat. Good ventilation is key, so my wife and I installed a Gaggenau hood over the stove when we were building our kitchen. The hood captures all types of odors and fumes and is almost undetectable because it is so quiet.
