This 5 Things You Need in Your Kitchen Right Now | Tips from a Pro Chef #passthePURELL post is brought to you by GOJO, the makers of PURELL® Multi-Surface Disinfectant.
Working his way around a kitchen is just something that comes naturally to my husband. He grew up working in the restaurant industry and has always had an ability to create something really amazing with food. It really is part natural talent and training with some great chefs/cooks.
Over the years we have tried pretty much every single kitchen gadget that has come out. We love seeing what's out there and then seeing if it fits into our lives. I have noticed that there are some items that seem to be in use constantly when the next meal is being made so I asked my husband to share his go-to items in the kitchen. He is a professional chef and after years of training plus working in kitchens, I know that his favorites are probably things that everyone could get some use out of. Here is our list of 5 Things You Need in Your Kitchen Right Now | Tips from a Pro Chef.
The first of the 5 things you need in your kitchen right now are good knives. Poor quality knives will at best not do the job very well and at worst are a danger. A poor quality knife will not cut well, will not feel balanced in your hand, and worst of all, they will not hold a sharp edge. A knife that cannot hold an edge is a dull knife, and dull knives are a danger. They require the cook to use excess amounts of force to cut, and if the knife slips with that force behind it, you can injure yourself quite badly. Look for a knife made from high quality hardened steel. The tang (the bit of metal in the handle) should run the full length of the knife. Take a look at the Wusthof Chef Knives over on Amazon; They are very high quality and will serve you well for many years.
The immersion blender is a lot like the traditional blender, but instead having a container with blades in the bottom, you get a steel shaft with blades on the bottom. This allows you to do things like blend and puree right in cooking pots and pans… or really any container. It saves time, and will help to up your sauce making game (chefs like to blend sauces to get “that look”).
Don’t buy a glass or hard plastic board. These are horrible for your knife edge, and food tends to slip around as you try to cut, creating a hazard. Instead, opt for a quality wood or plastic (made from polyethylene plastic) board. Something like this Acacia wood cutting board would be perfect.
Fourth on our list of 5 things you need in your kitchen right now is the chinois. A chinois is a fine mesh strainer in the shape of a cone. You use this to strain everything from soups and sauces to custards and purees. Additionally, it can also be used to dust your food with fine dry ingredients like powdered sugar. These things are worth their weight in gold to a chef, and are used constantly is sauce work. Something like the New Star Stainless Steel Chinois would be perfect.
New PURELL® Multi-Surface Disinfectant spray is the first of its kind formula that is no-rinse, designed to work on food-contact surfaces and gives the peace of mind to use it just about anywhere in your home. This spray is worry-free around food, kids and pets plus it works in 30 seconds to break down cell walls, kill germs on contact and sanitize surfaces. In fact, this new product kills 99.99% of viruses and bacteria with a revolutionary alcohol-based formula that kills germs like bleach without all of those harsh chemicals and irritating fumes. How great is that?
We can clean and disinfect the entire kitchen with this easy to use spray. We also disinfect and clean the kids lunch boxes, dog toys and pretty much anything else in the house. PURELL® Multi-Surface Disinfectant has all the germ-killing power of bleach—with no harsh fumes or toxic residue. Holds the EPA Design for the Environment (DfE) certification. This means PURELL® Multi-Surface Disinfecting Spray meets the EPA’s high standards for sustainable products
