While some kitchen tools have one specific use, many of them can transform into a variety of uses to help simplify your routine. Here are some unique ways to use those everyday tools:
1. Use your ice cream scoop to shape meatballs. Regardless the size of your scoop, using it to form your homemade meatballs will help ensure they are uniform in size and help with even cooking.
2. Spaghetti scoop as a measuring tool. Say what now? Did you know that hole in the center of your spaghetti scoop isn’t just to aid with draining your pasta? Before you add the noodles to the boiling water, measure out a perfect one serving portion by filling the hole with dry noodles. This is for long straight noodles such as spaghetti, linguine or fettuccine.
3. A pizza cutter for pretty much everything. Well, everything involving cutting. I use mine to cut pancakes and waffles into bite size pieces for the kids as well as aiding with chopping herbs, halving grapes and even cutting spaghetti into smaller bites.
