1. Peel Ginger With A Spoon
Traditionally, we use a vegetable peeler or a paring knife to peel the ginger. But this seems to be tricky as it comes with a lot of bumps and irregularities. You can do this familiar work more easily with a spoon. Simply scrape the tool against the skin until it comes right off, then follow the contour and lessen waste.
2. Make Uses Of The Immersion Blend
This is the electric tool that I use most in my kitchen because it has a long shot. It is functional in a wide range of jobs. I use it to purée soups straight in the pot, remove unpleasant lumps in the cheese sauce, or make mayonnaise within less than two minutes. The benefits of this tool that it is easier to clean compared to a food processor or a countertop blender, it doesn’t require us to move hot things from a pot to the blender jar and it can deal with even little ingredients ( but you need to insert a cup which is properly fitted its head).
3. Push Citrus With A Small Strainer

4. Make Dish With Eggs With The Small Strainer
Yeah, with the same strainer to push citrus above, you can make perfectly-shaped poached eggs. Simply crash the eggs into the strainer with the sink under, then gently spin them around take away the extra watery white. Don’t stop spinning until the left is a firm and egg-shaped egg. Also, this trick can applied for picture-perfect, poster glamour-shot-ready fried eggs.
5. Work Clean
Maybe one of the most concerning issues when cooking in the kitchen is the mess which is normally caused by poor task planning. You often finely dice four onions which need peeling and then put them into a large bowl, right? But this is actually a waste of time with so many steps. Instead, you can plan the work as in a factory: cut off the end part and split the onions, peel them all, then do horizontal cuts, then vertical cuts. In the end, put the perfect onion dice into the bowl and clean the board and the surrounding area before moving to the following task. Always think in this way while doing your kitchen tasks, not only will you use your time more effectively, you will also make things cleaner, neater and better-organized.

Likewise, you can make a large batch of stock, then divide them intp proper portion and put them the freezer, remember to use a plastic freezer bag to cover them, and whenever you want a fresh stock, pull out some.
