When you are a beginner in cooking, people believe that the best tip they can give you is never to give up even when you’ve ruined a dish. My tip to you would be this: if you want to have success in the kitchen, make sure you have the right tools, to begin with.
Bamboozle Bamboo Kitchen Compost Bin
There was a time when people used to line their kitchen garbage bin with a plastic grocery bag – if you had to throw wet stuff, you could just take the plastic out to empty it. Some people preferred not to keep a garbage can in the kitchen. General rubbish used to go in a bin outside while items to be composted used to go in a small bin by the back door, in the porch and were regularly transferred to a compost bin found in the garden. However, with the Bamboozle compost bin, there’s no need to go back and forth between the kitchen and the garden; this simple indoor bin can hold all your kitchen scraps such as herb stems, vegetable peels and fruit seeds.
This smooth matte bin is made up of renewable bamboo fiber –which explains its light feel – and comes with carbon filters – which can block odors and keep your kitchen smelling clean. This compost bin is not only a chic addition to your kitchen space, but it can also convert your own vegetable waste into compost that can be used to enrich the soil in your garden.

Peleg Design Egg Yolk Separator
On tv, you can often watch chefs pouring the egg into their hands and letting the white drip out between their fingers, thus retaining the yolk in their palm. Or, another method to separate eggs is to use the shell to catch the yolk white the white runs into a bowl. While these methods sound very easy, they can quickly become very messy; plus, a mother-cum-wife-cum-employee won’t always have time for such tasks. This is why many prefer using the Peleg egg yolk separator. This funny and cute kitchen tool is a perfect for separating egg yolks from whites.
Chef Master Meat Tenderizer Tool
Cooking meat is an art and the best way to tenderize meat depends on your goals and a lot on your choices. Long and slow cooking is a great way (think of braising and barbecuing); and salting can also help. However, mechanical tenderizing using a meat tenderizer is much more effective –it breaks up muscle fibers, breaks down tough parts and gives the meat a mushy and spongy texture.
If you buy and use a Chef Master meat tenderizer, you’ll end up having the best steak dinner of your life. This handy-dandy kitchen tool is the hero of a budget cook. It can take a tough cut of a chuck or chicken and quickly transform it into a slice of flavorful and softer-to-chew meat by physically breaking down dense fibers and tissues.
This stainless steel tool consists of razor-sharp blades that can penetrate any type of cut of meat with ease and slice through its tough fibers to create channels for marinades to penetrate easily; it can be used on pork, turkey, chicken and fish.
