18 Time Saving Kitchen Tips

Who doesn’t want to save time in the kitchen? Enjoy these kitchen tips that will help you save time and keep an organized kitchen.  Double your favorite family recipes and freeze the extra meal to enjoy another night. You’ll halve the amount of time you spend cooking.  Take advantage of convenience food you can incorporate into your own meals rather than cooking completely from scratch. Multitask phone calls with small kitchen tasks, such as unloading the dishwasher or wiping down the kitchen counters. Cut down on peeling fruit and vegetables by choosing recipes that don’t require it. Stock your freezer with chopped or diced frozen vegetables. They are nutritious and require less prep.  Before starting a meal, fill your sink with warm soapy water. Dishes can soak as you go, making clean up much quicker and easier. Upgrade small appliances to ones that will do most of the work for you, such as a pod coffee maker, a crock pot, or a bread machine. Always have a pair of kitchen scissors handy. They make a quick job of every day kitchen tasks, from snipping herbs to opening packages. Keep a well-stocked pantry, and you’ll cut down on those time consuming last minute trips to the grocery store. Learn the proper way to chop, peel and perform other food prep. Increasing your efficiency will decrease your cooking time. Master the art of one-pot cooking. This naturally reduces clean up. Keep your most used items close at hand, so you don’t have to spend extra time reaching or searching for them. Attach extra measuring scoops or spoons to your sugar, coffee and other frequently used ingredients to eliminate a step. Instead of waiting for butter to soften for a recipe, grate it first with a cheese grater, and it will be ready in no time.  Create stations in your kitchen where tools and appliances that work together are stored. Invest in easy-to-clean cookware and tools to save yourself from scrub time.  Before preparing a meal, do a quick check on ingredients and tools, and read over the recipe, to prevent time wasting hunting and backtracking.  With the exception of baking bread, skip the preheating process. Most meals can be started in a cold over without a problem.
