Lettuce_in_salad_spinnerThose who consider themselves to have some serious kitchen skills agree that the right equipment is the difference between a good home-cooked meal and a restaurant-quality dish. There are a lot of professional equipment in the kitchen from ovens to commercial freezers but let’s take a look at some of the kitchen equipment that are most popular among cooking enthusiasts across the nation.

Salad Spinner

Washing and drying salad can be a real pain and often results in unpalatable soggy leaves. The greens go in the basket, where they are soaked in water. Then you put down the lid, press the lever, and the basket spins the salad dry. Not only does it handle an annoying chore, but it does it in a most amusing way. The biggest downside to a salad spinner is that they’re pretty big.

Garlic Press

Garlic Presses are extremely popular. These handy little devices fit in one hand and they can press garlic or ginger. Just put a knob of garlic in the hopper, swing the handle around and press. This device is a must for people who are aware of the many health benefits of garlic.

Centrifugal Juicer

A juicer is a great way to make a glass of fruit juice or vegetable juice that you know is fresh and comes right from the source. The juicer has a spinner system that extracts pulp while a shredder disc spins and chops everything up into tiny little pieces. People have lost lots of weight on juicing diets, making this a great investment on the long term health of you and your loved ones.

Mandoline Slicer

Mandolines can cut down on prep time in a major way when it is time to slice up zucchini and brussels sprouts. Each salt-mill-275731_640mandoline comes with four blades which allow you to slice things in various degrees of thickness. Make sure to use the hand guard correctly and resist the temptation to slice too fast, for the sake of your own safety.

Pepper Mill

Pepper mills are fun little devices that can really impress a guest. It’s a device that most don’t think twice about until they see how useful it is. It’s a classy way to spice up your meals. Just take care to buy a quality pepper mill, as some are known to break within the span of a month. Some pepper mills even have different mechanisms built in to get the most from each type of peppercorn.

The right tools make all the difference when it comes to crafting a superior meal.
