Even if you want to cook your own meals, it's quite difficult when you come back from work and make it. Is it something that can somehow reduce the work?
So this time, we will introduce 6 selections of "kitchen goods that can reduce washing" sold at 100-yen shops! Please refer to the summary of what the editorial department actually used and thought "this is convenient!".
1. 1. Aktori Otama (Daiso)
When you make a hot pot, if you use a ladle to remove lye and scoop up ingredients and soup, you will have to wash more. That's where the "Akutori Otama" comes in handy, where you can scoop up lye and soup and ingredients with just one bottle.
There is a small hole at the base of the pot, which is shaped like a drop. Scoop the top of the pot, tilt it, and let the juice escape from the hole to remove the lye.
You can remove only the ingredients by scooping the ingredients together with the soup and tilting it toward you to let the soup drain through the holes. Even tofu is easy.
And if you use it normally without tilting it, you can scoop up the juice.
2. Universal cooking spoon (Daiso)
When making some side dishes, if the equipment used is different, the amount of washing will increase. Therefore, we recommend the "universal cooking spoon," which can be used in four ways: "grate," "crush," "mix," and "stir-fry."
A large spoon shaped like a lacrosse stick. The tip is a "potato masher" with some elongated holes. There are many small round holes in the center. There is a spiky protrusion in the foreground, which plays the role of a “grater”.
You can crush potatoes and pumpkins by using the flat tip. When making potato salad, you can mix potatoes and other ingredients with a spoon as it is.
You can grate ginger and garlic with the grater in the foreground. The nice thing about this spoon is that you can put it in a frying pan from a spoon and fry it as it is.
3. 3. Cutting board that can be placed upright (Can Do)
A cutting board that can be placed upright because it folds vertically in the middle. It is easy to transfer the cut ingredients without spilling, and it is easy to dry and hygienic. … But this time, I'm not paying attention to it, but the cutting board.
It comes with grated condiments! This is enough if you want to grate small things such as garlic and ginger. You don't have to use a grater, so you don't have to wash more.
I actually grated ginger, but it was grated without any problems, and it was convenient because it was easy to transfer to a plate as it was.
Four. Flour pretend stocker (Can Do)
I think that flour is sprinkled on the ingredients, but if you use a colander or tea strainer to prevent lumps, you will have to wash more. Therefore, a convenient stocker is to put flour in it and sprinkle it with one hand when needed. Since the inner lid has a net, the powder does not become lumpy and shakes evenly.
It has an outer lid, so it is an excellent product that can suppress dust and moisture. It can be used not only for wheat flour but also for powdered sugar (powdered sugar) that often appears in making sweets. The capacity is about 200 ml. It's compact so it doesn't take up much space.
Five. Silicon Cook Saibashi (Ceria)
Hybrid chopsticks with five functions: "grab", "mix", "stab", "season", and "taste". Grab and mix as usual, but what do you mean by stinging, seasoning, and tasting ...
The tip on the other side of the chopsticks is like a measuring spoon on one side and a fork on the other side. The spoon is designed to measure about 2.5cc and 5cc (1 teaspoon). It comes with a memory, which is convenient when adding seasonings. Also, since it is a spoon, it can be used for tasting.
And you can check the simmering condition by sticking the fork into vegetables. It's thinner than chopsticks, so the ingredients don't crumble easily.
You don't have to take out a measuring spoon or fork, which reduces the amount of washing. Moreover, it is also excellent as chopsticks, and the tip is made of silicon, so it is easy to grasp the ingredients.
6. Garlic peeler (Daiso)
The last is here. I would like to introduce "Silicone Garlic Peeler" in the sense that you can save the trouble of washing your "hands". A tubular silicone peeler. If you use this, even if you peel the garlic, it will not smell easily on your hands. In addition to garlic, it can also be used for thin skin such as ginkgo.
Disassemble the garlic, cut off the root part, and put it in the cylinder. Just hold it with your hand from above and roll it around, and you can peel it with as little odor as possible!
How was the kitchen goods that can play two or three roles in one? All products cost 100 yen (excluding tax), so you can use them without hesitation, and if you find something that interests you, why not give it a try! I think that stress can be reduced just by reducing the amount of washing one or two!
