Useful Tips For Using Cooking Tools And Doing Hygiene For Them

These days, a lot of housewives are using cooking tools in a wrong way on the grounds that they complaint about too much time they have to spend to learn and absorb such knowledge.

However, using wrongly kitchen tools will lead to a lot of severe consequences. Therefore, in this article, I would like to give you some tips for using three most popular kinds of kitchen machines. Besides, I will also provide you with tips for doing kitchen hygiene.

Using Kitchen Tools

Today, I will give you right instructions for using a pan, a pot made of aluminum and the microwave.

Using A Pan

People often use a nonstick pan for more convenience. However, using this kind of pan for a long time, it can make all the nutrients in the food change and contain poisonous substances which will destroy our digest system if we eat them too much.

Nowadays, nonstick pans are sold widely in the market but one recommendation has been brought about that we should impose a limit on using these pans as they are covered with a nonstick layer which turns out to be just a layer to resist high temperature. This layer will release smoke that has a mix of complex substances.

These are toxic ones to harm people’s health, especially the old and children. When we eat food cooked by this pan, there will have some common symptoms such as chest tightness or shortness of breath.

Therefore, we need to limit using such products with some small tips. When we cook by this pan, remember to avoid too high temperature or too much heat which will destroy the atom’s structure in every nutrient of the food. At 300 – 400 degree C, there will have much toxic smoke and the nonstick layer of the pan will be destroyed, too.

Using A Pot

A lot of families now still use the pot made of aluminum one the grounds that it is cheap. However, wrong using this pot will result in health deterioration for every member in your family.

According to scientists, using an aluminum pot for cooking food with sault, sauce or vinegar is very harmful. The reason is that when we cook, the chemical reactions occur and our food will absorb chemicals. In addition to this, if we buy aluminum pots of unoriginal brands, the aluminum material may be mixed with the food and after we eat them, the amount of erythrocyte in our blood will be reduced considerably.

Thus, it is the best for you to avoid using such pot so that we can reduce the risk that causes to weak health.

Using A Microwave

Using a microwave seems to be very convenient and very popular nowadays. But do you know the differences between using a microwave with traditional cooking?

When we use fire, coal or gas to cook, the food will all be cooked and all the protein will be changed to be amino acid or peptide that is easy for us to digest. Cooking by a microwave can make the food cooked within a few minutes.

According to American scientists, the food cooked can contain some strange substances which can weaken our immune system. Besides, this microwave can cook this corner of the food but cannot cook well all the rest. Therefore, some bacteria are not killed and they still have a chance to destroy our stomach.

One good way to avoid such bad consequences is that we should use the microwave when we want to recook or heat the food.

Tips For Doing Kitchen Hygiene

As you can see using the three products above may result in dangers for our health so firstly, it is better to avoid items like them.

Additionally, it is very significant to clean and do hygiene for the kitchen regularly, including the floor, table, kitchen furniture and all types of pots, machines and tools for cooking. It is ideal to do this work every day in order to keep the space in the kitchen pure and clean otherwise it will smell really bad. I am certain that no one likes to breathe in such the bad smell.

Kitchen Tools For Housewives

Our kitchen is always full of tools and stoves and we cannot get rid of anything on the grounds that we need all of them, from stoves to dishes. These tools are like the right hands of our housewives in cooking meals for families.

However, some people buy too many things to display in the kitchen table. This will confuse our eyes very much. Therefore, we had better know what is necessary and what is unnecessary. In this article, I will give you some instructions for choosing chops, knives, knife docks, toothpick holder and spice jars.

Choosing Chops

2 chops are suitable on the grounds that you will have to use one for slicing fresh food which has not still processed and use one for cooked food. For both these kinds of food, wooden chops are of the best suitability. Plastic chops will give a lot of debris. You can choose the rectangular or the round one, depending on your liking and the aesthetics. You ought to choose the large chop so that you can slice or chop comfortably.

The strength of a wooden chop over a plastic one is that the wood material is sturdy and difficult to be broken or cracked while the plastic material is easy to be cut. In addition, wood material is much safer.

Choosing Knives

A knife is an indispensable assistant of housewives in terms of cooking, especially cutting. We could not also deny the important role of an eating knife in every meal.

Apart from cutting, chopping and slicing, a knife helps you create decorations made of vegetable and make your dishes more attractive. When you buy a knife, you have to pay attention to the holder and the blade.

Do not choose the rectangular knife which as too sharp corners on the grounds that it will cause wounds to your fingers when you use it.

Almost all the knives in the market are made of stainless steel or iron. We know that iron knives are very sharp but they are easy to worn out due to storing to the air. Stainless knives are less sharp but more durable and easy to clean.

The knives that have cogs help you slice carrots, vegetable and fruits very beautifully with shapes of flowers or leaves.  This kind of knives can cut bread to decorate. To save money, you had better buy a full set, including all types of knives if you want or buy separately according to your demand.

To store the knives, we have to wash them and dry them with a dry towel after using them. After that, we have to put them into the knife dock or hang them on the shelves. However, do not put them together with other tools to avoid wounds.

When the knives become blunt, we can absolutely make them sharper by sharpening them. To keep them sharp for a long time, we should use them for right purposes. For example, do not use a peeling knife to slice meat or chop meat.

Choosing Knife Docks

You will be able to remove all the mess when all the tools are well arranged. Knives and scissors are a kind of dangerous tools for users so you had better have a special place for storing. That is a knife dock.

A knife dock has many clefts and each is for putting one knife. The dock should be kept in safe places where your children cannot reach. The dock has a lot of advantages. It helps to arrange all the knives and scissors in right positions; keep safe and keep them durable.

Toothpick Holder

It is very interesting to see toothpick holder of funny shape like a fish, bird or cat on the dining table in your house. There is no need to open the holder to take a toothpick to use. You only need to press one button or put the holder upside down to get the toothpick.

Spice Jars

Almost all housewives put the spice jars indiscriminately on the table or in the shelves so sometimes, they have to spend a lot of time finding those jars. It will be better for them to buy a chain of spice jars which are arranged near each other and fixed. Then we only need to put them in the cooking table and use anytime.

Taboo In Cooking Every Day

Nowadays, people are thinking of many dishes with combine many kinds of food. However, not all of them are delicious and safe for our health. Some wrong combinations will be very dangerous to our stomach and even kill our intestine. In fact, almost all housewives cook as they want.

Therefore, there should have some notes about taboo in cooking. Today, I will show you what you have to avoid, in terms of combining this kind of food with that kind.

However, if you use two of them at the same time for the morning or for your fast meal, they will prevent you from absorbing protein.

Pouring Sugar Into The Milk Boiling

Boiling milk to drink in a cold morning is very good for our health. However, you can add some sugar into the milk when the milk is warm, for fresh milk. If you pour sugar directly into the milk boiling, the amino acid in the milk boiling and the fructose will combine each other and generate a type of poison that is harmful to your health.

If you want to use both milk and sugar for the meal, you had better add the sugar to the milk glass when the milk is warm or cool for the sake of your health.
