Hello there friends! Let’s all admit that we love walking into convenience stores. Something about them that makes us linger longer than expected. Perhaps, it’s strolling while feating our eyes with their novel inventions. There are so many items in these convenience stores that sometimes, we get overwhelmed. So, today, we’re sharing with you this list of 7 kitchen utensils from Daiso, recommended by a fellow Malaysian, Hani Mynis. Ready? Let’s go.
7 Tried And Tested Kitchen Tools To Get From Daiso
1. Daiso Silicone Oil Bottle & Brush
If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, this item will surely add some value to your life. This silicone oil bottle & brush is handy in the sense that on one hand, you can fill up the bottle with oil and on the other end, you can just brush the pan with the oil. So convenient! Hani also left a great tip; we can add pieces of pandan leaves into the oil for fragrant cooking.
2. Kitchen Timer
Next up, is a kitchen timer! When you’re baking a cake, or perhaps just boiling eggs, nothing screams more convenient than a kitchen timer. Of course, you can just utilize the timer in your handphone but what if you get too distracted by it? So, try out this handy tool from Daiso!
3. Egg Timer
Aside from the usual timer, did you know that at Daiso, you can also get an egg timer? Daiso is indeed the land of all things unusual but hey, that’s the beauty of them. How the egg timer works is rather simple: just put in the timer along with the egg into the pot of boiled water. The edges of the egg timer will lighten as the eggs cook, aligning with markings that indicate soft, medium, and hard boil.
4. Silica Gel Food Desiccant
When it comes to storing our food, it’s always best if we can store them for a period of time without compromising its freshness. And, here at Daiso, you can get those tiny gel packs (they’re actually called silica gel food desiccant) and pop them into your storage container. There you have it, now your food items will always remain fresh.
5. Cooking Oil Hardener
This next item is useful for just about anyone who does any cooking. But we need to ask, how do you guys handle excess oil that you no longer need? Throw them away? Well, what if the oil clogs the sink? So, with this cooking oil hardener, you can harden excess oil residue and then discard them into a plastic bag before throwing it out.
6. Milk Frother
Coffee lovers, this tool from Daiso will make your cup of coffee so much better. It’s none other than a milk frother. As you can already tell from its name, its purpose is to froth milk and create a foamy texture. But aside from frothing milk, Hani Mynis mentioned that we can also use this frother to beat eggs and you’ll get a perfect omelette.
7. Spaghetti Measuring Tool
Ever face this problem whereby you happen to cook too much pasta? This probably happens too often so the very last tool recommended by Hani is a spaghetti measuring tool. Each tool comes with 4 different sizes of circles ranging from 1 to 4. All you need to do is just take a handful of spaghetti, fill it into one of the four spaces until the spaghetti bundle fits tightly. And voilà, you’ve got a perfect amount just for you.
