Mostly all of us make the same mistakes in the kitchen. There may be nothing bad about this. We complicate our lives as we make these mistakes and also ruin the taste of the food items. Most of us peel off garlic before cutting it and also watch the food cooking in the multicooker.
So, We have prepared the list of kitchen hacks for you as most of us do not know how to handle the kitchen effectively and efficiently.
1. We usually load the dishes in the dishwasher in the wrong way.
We put the plates one after the other in the dishwasher. In this way, all the plates do not get washed very well. A few scientists have decided to find the problem, and they have created a plan that how you should ideally put the plates in the dishwasher.
- We should put the plates in the dishwasher in the circle direction in which the water goes through the dishwasher.
- If the plates contain any food like carbohydrates like cereal and pasta, then put these plates in the centre of the dishwasher.
- The plates which have proteins on them like any meat products then place such dishes on the sides.
It is the effective way to use the dishwasher to clean up the plates and then you don’t need to rewash the dishes.
2. We use a microwave in the wrong way to heat up the food
We have noticed most of the times that the food items on the sides of the plates are heated more. Moreover, the food in the centre remains cold even if the dish gets too much heat. So, you should put the food items in the doughnut shape on the plate and leave the centre of the plate empty. All the food will get equally heated up in this way.
3. We use cheese knives in the wrong way.
Almost everyone keeps the cheese knife in his kitchen. However, only a few know how to use it correctly. This knife is designed to cut the cheese, and its tip is used to separate the thin slices of cheese. Moreover, even we can use this knife to cut those fruits and vegetables like tomato and ripe plump which have soft pulp and elastic skin.
4. We whip cream in the wrong way
Most of us whip the cream in the wrong way. The experienced housewives told us that if we do not prepare the mixer adequately to beat the cream, then it may not be good as we want. Preparing the mixer is effortless.
You only have to put the bowl to cool down and whisks in the freezer. It will make the cream easily come out in the better way.
5. We do not set the toaster in the right way
Most of us set up the toaster for the first time when we get it, and after that, we use it with the same settings regularly. It is good to use in the same way if we use the same kind of bread daily.
However, we should change the settings whenever we use the toaster if we use different kinds of bread. The reason behind it is that the quality of toast like its thickness and the cooking mode depends upon the type of the bread.
6. We do not need to control the automatic cooking appliances
We never relax when we use multicooker and another automatic device. We use to look inside the devices while cooking the food and ruin the result by doing this.
When we open the lid to check the food, we cool down the temperature which is needed to cook the food properly.
7. We do not use a spaghetti spoon properly
This spoon can even measure the quantity of spaghetti you need to put in the boiling water. It is so convenient for us.
8. By using the garlic press, we overcomplicate our work
Before putting the garlic into the press, most of us still peel it off. However, there is no need to peel it off if we use the press.
9. We should crack the eggs at the surface of the bowl.
We need to crack the egg on the surface of the bowl instead of on the edges of it. Otherwise, the pieces of eggshell will be there in your food.
10. Let’s learn to fry the eggs in the right way.
Firstly, we need to fry the egg white for a few minutes then add the yolk to it on the top.
