I love kitchen hacks! They save so much time and energy in the kitchen that it is almost unbelievable! Ever since I discovered them I have started enjoying cooking even more. Just zip, zap, zoom and I am out! Here are a few hacks that really help me in the kitchen:
- Keep a damp towel under the chopping board to prevent slippage:
This is by far my favourite hack. Slippery chopping boards apart from being unsafe also make it difficult to finely chop vegetables. Keeping a damp towel underneath the board prevents it from slipping and makes chopping a breeze.
- Buy a food processor:
Ok, so this is not technically a hack, but it makes life in the kitchen so easy that it almost should be one! Deciding to buy Morphy Richards food processor was by far the best decision I have ever made. It makes my life so easy in the kitchen by helping me choping, slice, grate, blend, whisk, shred and more!
- Reheating pasta the right way:
Leaving a small space in the middle of the plate while reheating pasta ensures even heating all the time.
- Reheat rotis:
Reheat rotis without turning them into frisbees by wrapping them in a damp paper towel and then microwaving for 30 seconds.
- Degrime and degerm at the same time:
Your kitchen sponge is a hot bed for harmful bacteria. Kill two birds with one stone by microwaving it for a minute. The steam from the wet sponge loosens all the dirt in the microwave making it easier to clean while the microwaves kill the bacteria in the sponge.
- Sharpen your knives:
Sharp knives not only help you cut faster but they are also safer.
- Bring wooden spoons back:
We all know the situation. A beautiful wooden spoon you have been using for ages suddenly starts to smell so you throw it away with a sad feeling in your heart. But things don’t need to be that way! You can simply boil and dry them and they will be as good as new!
- Lime scale no more:
Disgusted by the sight of yucky limescale in your electric kettle? Leave a vinegar solution in it overnight to clean it right up!
- Fight fire with… Baking soda?:
Yup! That’s right! I you are dealing with a small grease fire, sprinkle baking soda on it. Baking soda releases carbon dioxide when heated thus helping to extinguish the fire.
So those were my simple kitchen hacks, if i could advice you to try any of them then I would suggest that you buy Morphy Richards food processor. It truly helped me deal with my chores in a jiffy. I even use it to make flaky pastry dough and creamy yummy mayonnaise. It is also super easy to clean! Also using it for 8 months now has taught me quite a few tip and tricks about this miraculous machine, but I will leave that story for yet another day! Thank you for reading!
