I regularly work in several kitchens: The one in my house, the one at the coffee shop, the one at the retreat, and the one at church. Throughout my experience working in various kitchens there are some things that I’ve discovered are really helpful to have around, and other little tips and tricks to make life easier when trying to cook.
Today we’re going to talk about….
Silverware – Instead of keeping it in a drawer our family keeps ours in a basket that has four sections. (I think it was originally meant as a wine carrier….) This is perfect because we can carry it to the dishwasher to unload the silverware container, to the table when we’re setting places, and when we eat outside, we simply lug the basket with us. I’m pretty sure this is one of my favorite things about our kitchen.
Knives – Keeping them sharp cuts down on so much work. There’s nothing like going from a dull knife where you’re pretty much using your body weight to make the slice to a sharp knife that slides right through.
Whisk – We have some skillets that aren’t supposed to have metal spatulas used in them. I also sometimes like to whisk gravy, etc… while it’s cooking. Having a silicone-coated whisk is the perfect solution and is kinda pretty, too.
Crocks – We keep most of our kitchen utensils in a crock on the back of the counter by the stove. That way everything is easy to get to and right within reach, plus it looks pretty cool.
