Reddog Forge strives to make accurate, period utensils and ironware. Using Images like these here is crucial, and ensures we get it right.
Here is an image of a kitchen from the Tudor period. You can clearly see kitchen implements in use. Ladles, knives, skillets and stands.
In the background on the right is a  fire iron, used for raking over the fire.
Front left we can see a fish grill or griddle.  In the front right is  flat skillet, with legs and a pair of tongs.
The centre of the image is a large, round, three legged firebox. On either side of it is a Spit Boy doing the hot work of keeping the spits turning

In the above 16th century image we can see another kitchen and its staff. Hanging in the background is a variety of handled skillets, and spoons on a rack. The fire in the middle has a spit, dripping bowl, ladder pot hanger. On the  table on the right is a sugar grater.
