Food Preparation Accessories FAQs

How to store kitchen gadgets

Most homes have 'the drawer' - one or two drawers in your kitchen filled with all your loose kitchen gadgets when you have nowhere else to store them. These drawers will fill up very quickly, leading to a tangled mishmash of kitchen accessories that can get caught on each other and even get stuck in your drawers. But how to organise kitchen gadgets when you don't have a lot of drawer space?

Try using utensil jars for your most used items which can sit on your benchtop and keep them within easy reach. You can also add hooks above your stove or to the sides of your cabinets and benches so you can hang other kitchen gadgets - but keep them up high if you have curious children or pets!

Finally, a peg board is a great option if you have enough wall space for one. Most kitchen utensils have a hole or bend that is perfect for hanging with!

How to clean kitchen gadgets

How you clean your kitchen gadget will depend on the material it is made from.

Wooden kitchen utensils should always be hand washed and left to air dry, as a hot dishwasher can cause them to warp and crack, which creates an inviting space for germs and criteria to grow in.

Hard plastic utensils can go in the dishwasher, as can stainless steel accessories with no wooden embellishments. Silicone accessories should be hand washed to prevent tearing, and non-stick utensils should also be hand washed to protect their special coating.

What are the best materials for my kitchen accessories?

If you want kitchen gadgets that will last, look for durable materials like stainless steel or wood. Stainless steel is easy to clean, strong and light while wood is durable, light and visually pleasing.

Silicone and thick plastic kitchen accessories can last a while as long as they are taken care of, but avoid thinner, cheap plastic kitchen accessories, as they can crack or snap when used or when washed in a dishwasher.
