12 Practical and Inexpensive Utensils to Make Your Day in the Kitchen Easier

We are often so used to our hectic routine and the way we do household chores that we don’t even think about the existence of tools that could make our work easier, saving time and nerves.

We, from awesome.club, we have prepared a list of 12 very useful tools to make life easier in the kitchen, and we are ready to share it with you. Check out!

Non-spill silicone lid

In order not to have to constantly monitor the cooking of pasta or potatoes, and also to prevent the water from boiling and running out of the pan, you can use this special silicone lid. Like conventional lids, it has a hole in the center that allows steam to escape. But the advantage of this utensil is that, when boiling, the water that rises collects on top of the lid instead of spilling over the sides of the pan. In addition, you can also use it to cook a small portion of steamed vegetables.

multifunctional food processor

Preparing recipes that take a large amount of ingredients is a tiring task, especially if you are preparing a varied menu, such as Christmas or New Year’s. However, with the help of a multifunctional processor it becomes much easier. It allows you to chop food much faster, or even process it into a paste. In addition, you can also use it as a meat grinder.

Scissors with five blades

If you use fresh herbs and spices frequently in the kitchen, then these scissors will certainly suit you. Instead of spending a lot of time painstakingly chopping the spices with your knife, you can simply use the utensil and chop them up in a matter of seconds.

Silicone zip lock bags

Plastic containers are very convenient for storing food, but sometimes they take up too much space. The same goes for lunch box style lunchboxes: they are, in fact, irreplaceable if you use them to carry a complete meal, however, in the case of a light salad or a sandwich, they end up being very bulky. And that’s exactly the advantage of silicone zip lock bags. They perform the same function as plastic containers, but are much more compact.

children’s rotating plate

Young children are constantly picking up, turning and dropping objects. And, of course, when it comes to toys, there is no problem with that. But when it comes to food, it becomes a real headache for parents. The revolving children’s plate slides on its base when it is moved, keeping food always in place. By the way, such dishes are suitable not only for small children, but also for older ones. You can let them eat peacefully in the bedroom or living room, without having to worry that all the food ends up on the mattress or on the floor.

Coffee measuring spoon with clip holder

This stylish utensil can come in handy for anyone who consumes loose coffee or tea. First, it serves as a clip holder, so you no longer have to worry about twisting the package to close it or even securing it with a tong to prevent the aroma and flavor of the product from weakening. And other than that, it is a measuring spoon, which turns out to be very practical when preparing your drink.

Detergent dispenser and sponge holder

This detergent dispenser and sponge holder solves multiple problems at once. First, it looks nice, adds a more modern feel to your kitchen, and takes up less space next to the sink than a bottle of detergent and a sponge separately. Secondly, it is very practical: just press lightly on the sponge before removing it from the container so that it receives the ideal amount of cleaning product.

Multifunctional and adjustable can opener

Surely, everyone has had difficulty opening a jar of preserves or jam in their life and ended up trying everything on the fly: from using wet towels and gloves to hair elastics. To solve this problem once and for all, you can purchase this multifunctional and adjustable can opener. With it, it is possible to open pots without any difficulty, as well as cans and all kinds of bottles.

Food waste collection network

It is common knowledge that you should avoid throwing food waste down the sink. However, from time to time, some pieces of food end up passing through the protective drains, which can clog the plumbing over time. An alternative to prevent this from happening is to adhere to this utensil, which consists of a small net attached to the corner of the sink. In addition, pouring food leftovers into it is much more practical than in the trash, as it is enough to dump everything there, without having to worry about the liquid on the plate. And when the net gets full, just pull it out and dispose of it.

Container for storing fresh spices

Everyone has probably had to throw away whole bunches of green spices and greens without even using half of them because they dried out or wilted quickly. However, there are special containers to prevent this: they have water in the bottom part, which must be changed every 3 – 5 days, and in the top part you can store chives, dill, parsley and others. That way, the green seasonings stay fresh much longer. And the design of the containers allows them to be stored on the refrigerator door, without taking up too much space.

Tea bags or spices

When preparing a soup or feijoada, sometimes we have to use seasonings and ingredients that shouldn’t end up on the plate at the end. For example, garlic cloves, bay leaves, peppercorns, and so on. Using a special bag simplifies this process: just put all the spices and ingredients in it, put it in the pan during the preparation and, at the end, just remove it and discard it. In addition, they can also be used to prepare teas.

Peeler with waste collection container

Most people are certainly used to peeling potatoes, cucumbers, carrots and other vegetables by letting the skins fall in the sink, on the table or countertop. But that’s a little inconvenient, after all, you have to throw everything in the trash and clean up the place. However, there is a solution to this problem: a peeler with a waste container. During use, peel residues accumulate in a reservoir that, after completion, simply be emptied in the trash and then rinsed.
