As an Airbnb host, one of the best things you can do for your business is earn Superhost Status.
That’s because Airbnb Superhosts have instant credibility with potential guests (not to mention, greater visibility in search results!)
And, becoming a Superhost is surprisingly simple.
Ensuring your guests have a wonderful stay with thoughtful touches like a well-stocked kitchen can go a long way in getting the glowing reviews you need to meet the Superhost criteria.
Read on for a complete list of essential cooking supplies for a well-stocked Airbnb kitchen.

Airbnb Checklist: Cooking Supplies for Superhost Status
These Henckels knives are on the expensive side but they’re worth it because having a high-quality set of knives is rare in the average Airbnb. And, they can make a big impact when your guests are cooking.
These are hands-down the best cutting boards you can buy. They’re super high-quality, durable, and non-slip. They also come in a 3-pack, which ensures your guests always have what they need and that multiple guests can cook at the same time.
I recommend going for a darker color to hide any stains.
Your pots, pans, and cooking utensils are going to get used and abused (and thrown in the dishwasher!) so, this set of non-stick cookware is perfect. It’s inexpensive and has thousands of great reviews.
With this bundle, you’ll get tons of essential cooking utensils (like a spatula, measuring cups/spoons, tongs, a whisk, and more.)
Don’t skip this one – oven mitts and pot holders are an absolute necessity for any kitchen.
By buying this bundle, you’ll get an incredibly high-quality, durable product that seems to last forever. (Plus, the potholders double as jar openers, drying mats, and spoon rests.)
I don’t know about you, but one of the most frustrating things for me about Airbnbs is that they never seem to have any food storage containers.
Prevent your guests from being disappointed after dinner by providing them with these containers.
If you think your guests will need large containers, grab these too.
(Don’t forget to provide these dining room essentials that’ll help you earn Superhost status.)
When it comes to picking your coffee maker, there’s no reason to shell out $100+ on a fancy one. This coffee maker from Black+Decker works very well and is incredibly reliable (unlike the many expensive coffee makers I’ve tried!)
Go the extra mile for your guests by buying this inexpensive pour-over and french press, too. (These are items you only need to buy once, but can put a smile on many, many guests’ faces first thing in the morning.)
Mixing bowls are essential for making a nice meal with friends. Your guests will love that these mixing bowls come with lids they can just pop on when needed.
You don’t need to spend an arm and a leg to get a great, reliable toaster.
(If you expect to have more than a few guests, consider this 4-slice toaster instead.)
For all the garlic lovers out there, this garlic press makes cooking a breeze.
When you need a hand mixer, there’s just really no good substitute.
Essential for both cooking and baking.
This bundle comes with plenty of dishtowels so your guests always have what they need.
I hope this Airbnb checklist saves you tons of time setting up your Airbnb. (Congrats, by the way! Starting your first Airbnb is a HUGE accomplishment!)
