Chinese New Year 2021 is just under 2 weeks away, which means the time for the annual family reunion dinner is just round the corner too! While hosting a reunion dinner and preparing food may seem stressful, here are some of the kitchen gadgets to make your life easier than before!
With these useful kitchen tools, you can invite your guest over without worrying about burning a hole in your pocket from food deliveries or the long food preparation hours.
1. SALAD SPINNER
Start your meal off with a salad as a healthy appetizer option! When it comes to a delicious, flavour-packed salad, the greens must be so dry that the sauce clings onto it. A salad spinner allows you to dry your salad instantly with just a few presses. In addition, most salad spinners act as an elegant serving bowl that looks good on any dining table where you can store and serve them straight.
2. POTATO CUTTER
Switch up your snack game with potato or vegetable sticks. You can now easily slice up your potato or vegetable in perfect strips and pop it in the air fryer. Voilà, nothing better than self-made, fresh, delicious potato chips in just a few minutes!
3. GARLIC PRESS
Garlic is an essential ingredient for many diverse cooking styles. However, we also understand that it is a pain to chop a large amount of them. With a garlic press, simply open the lid and pop the cloves in! Not only is it effortless, your hands will not reek of garlic scent and remain clean. Time to add that flavour and aroma into your savoury dishes!
4. APPLE CUTTER
Serving fruit platter for your guest? With this amazing invention, you can now cut your fruits with just one simple push! Not limited to apples only, you can cut any fruit that fits in this slicer and it will separate the core and slice the rest into even bite-sized pieces.
5. PERFECT ROLL SUSHI
How hard could it be to prepare Sushi? This dish might look simple but if you have tried preparing a large number of rolls, you will know how difficult it really is. From tearing Nori (seaweed) to food spilling out, you will never face this problem now with a sushi maker! Simply place your ingredients in, fold down the handle, pull the flap and the perfect Sushi roll is formed.
To switch things up, you can place the Sushi maker on the dining table and allow your guest to take part in this hands-on, fun experience (a good way to occupy the kids as well!).
6. POTATO MASHER
Designed to press and combine, a masher highlights the convenience of crushing your next dish! Not only for potatoes, this tool can also be used to prepare your egg salad, crush avocados for your guacamole dip or cookie crumbs for your dessert!
7. FOOD CHOPPER
To limit your manual chopping and dicing, a food chopper is a handy indispensable tool to your kitchen and the best helper for your food preparation. Simply place your garlic, ginger and spice into the chopper and it’ll be ready in a jiffy! Often the cheaper option as compared to food processors, this is a must-have and efficient tool for your kitchen.
