Really depends on what you are shooting. If the object is too large, the macro lens might not be able to frame it fully.

extension tubes...
your kit lens.. or macro only if you want to shoot very close ups..

lighting and a creative mind is more important for product photography..
It will be good if both of you can post the replies to TS 2 years and seven months earlier. :)

I use both 25mm zuiko f2.8, or 30mm sigma f1.4 (if you need thin DOF)

any lens even kit is pretty much useable with proper technique...its learning how to use light to make the food very appetising thats difficult to pick up.
