COOKING TIP: Dual Uses for Kitchen Utensils

SOME COMMON KITCHEN ITEMS CAN BE USED FOR MORE THAN THEIR INTENDED PURPOSE.  A FEW SUGGESTIONS FOLLOW.

1) A pizza cutter can be used to chop soft herbs; basil, cilantro, parsley, tarragon, etc.

2) Muffin tins can be inverted and taco shells can be made to stand between the cups to be filled.

3) Aluminium foil can be rolled into a cone shape and be used as a funnel.

4) The smallest holes in a box grater can be used to scrape away burned parts on toast.

5) Pizza stones can be used, in an oven to bake foods that taste best crisp; oven baked fries, breaded cheese sticks, etc.

6) Your splatter guard can be placed over a bowl and used as a cooling rack.

7) Use chip clips to prop open the correct page on your cook book.
