What Is The Best Timer For The Kitchen?
The traditional egg timer has ruled the kitchen for many years, but that does not mean you cannot get any better. While a normal egg timer is perfect for your basic boiled eggs, it is not as functional for your finer cooking attempts. Why? Because you often have to time several things at once.
To get a more efficient kitchen times, it is a good idea to look at a dual digital timer. With a dual timer, you can track two different things at a time. So, if you feel like simultaneously cooking pasta al dente and getting the perfect roast, this timer enables you to do it.
What Are The Essential Utensils For The Kitchen?
When it comes down to utensils, you have a choice between the essentials and some of the latest options. It is usually a good idea to have a mixture of both, since even the bare essentials get improved over time. Of course, there are also some essentials you need to keep.
Wooden spoon: The wooden spoon has been around for an exceptionally long time, and this is an essential you absolutely need in your kitchen. From cooking mince to creating some of the best sauces, there are hundreds of things you need a wooden spoon for.
When you purchase a wooden spoon, be sure never to put it in a dishwasher. Over time, this can cause the wood to crack, ruining this valuable tool. Instead, wash your wooden spoon by hand and leave it to dry completely before putting it away.
Silicone tongs: While the traditional set of tongs does a good job for a barbecue, the silicone option is definitely an upgrade. The material is durable, but also handles your meat with greater ease. On top of that, it also has a better grip. So, you should add this upgraded tool to your kitchen collection.
Reusable piping bags: Instead of using single use piping bags, you may want to get a reusable version if you bake on a regular basis. Not only does it save you money in the long run, it is better for the environment too.
Curved grater: While you can use a standard grater for everything from cheese to vegetables, using it can be rather dangerous at times. If you like more control during the grating process, then one of the curved graters should be in your kitchen collection.
Which Of The Latest Gadgets Should I Add To My Kitchen?
