1. Measuring Messy Ingredients
One of my favorite kitchen tools, an adjustable measuring cup, makes accurately adding sticky ingredients such as honey, mayo, peanut butter, and sour cream a breeze.
Simply slide the 2 pieces apart to adjust it to the measurement you want and fill. Hold over the bowl and push to release the contents. A swipe of a spatula to finish and no more scraping to get the contents out.
The two pieces separate for quick cleaning.

2. Getting tomato paste out of the can
Getting tomato paste, refried beans, and other thick canned goods out of the container is sticky business unless you use the same plunging idea as the adjustable measure cup above. Open both ends of the can and push the lid through on one side pushing the entire contents out.
3. Corn without any silk left
Getting the silt off the corn with a vegetable brushes doesn't seem to do the trick for me, and we are left eating pulling off a few strands as we eat. Purchasing corn still in the husk is cheaper, so there is no excuse left not to indulge in a few ears.
4. Peeling tomatoes
When a recipe calls for peeled tomatoes, I go with the canned version. Now that I know the trick to make this easy, I will opt for fresh tomatoes next time.
Place 2 cups of boiling water in a container, add the tomatoes and heat on high for 1 min. Plunge into cold water and the skin will peel of easily.
5. Keep lettuce fresh
Wilting lettuce isn't appetizing. HomeEverAfter.com gives a few alternatives to keeping your lettuce fresher longer.
I wrap mine in paper towels before placing them in the crisper.
Thank you for the amazing kitchen tips. I will use all of them. I found the one for peeling tomatoes very helpful. Please keep uploading more such posts!
well, to clean the kitchen i use vinegar + water and lemons. It’s cheaper, healthier and it leaves behind a nice smell.

I love kitchen gadgets. The tomato peeling tip is one I shall use. I’ve got a tip for you and your readers:
Garlic is terrible when it comes to getting rid of the smell off your fingers. I’ve had to go out sometimes after cooking, only to find that I still had garlic smell on my fingers (after washing my hands several times). The best way to get that garlic smell off your fingers is to rub them with a stainless steel spoon while washing them. Works like a charm!
Good tip. It gets rid of onion smell too.
Great tips! I don’t have a whole lot of kitchen tips to share.

I find it very irritating when I feel the silky strands while eating corn. How much ever you clean it, they never go. I watched the video and I loved that neat trick. Its amazing. Thanks for sharing the video.
Yes these are absolute perfect tricks to help you in the kitchen to make work easier and faster. Garlic and ginger paste and tomato puree is what I usually keep ready to use in my refrigerator. This helps me in saving time and cooking food quickly when I come back home. The ingredients measuring instrument is something that has impressed me and I think this will be the best tool to help in adding the proper amounts.

Of course, I agree these are great time saving tips which will help us spend less time in the kitchen and get our work done quickly. I like the idea of making the tomato puree and other paste of garlic and ginger with coriander one of the best as you require them daily to cook food. These tips have made our kitchen work easier. Now we can actually think of spending some time with ourselves and other children and spouse.
