Meat Tenderizer

Using a Meat Tenderizer is the most efficient and cheapest way to get your cut of meat tender. Meat tenderizers look like a hammer, but on one side will have small pyramid shape of nails that will cut and break down the fibres of the meat, hence soften the meat before you cook.

You can cook corn in the microwave. Cook 3 ears of unhusked corn for 7 minutes. If your microwave does not have a turntable, turn corn over after first 3 minutes.

Be careful when removing the husks – the ears will be very hot. One average ear of corn equals 85 calories. Two ears of corn equals approximately 1 cup of kernels.

Here are some of the kitchen gadgets you can consider while cooking corn…

Garlic is an essential ingredient in cooking, however chopping and mincing garlic with a knife can be quite painful and time consuming.  To avoid smelly and sticky hands, why not choose a good quality garlic press that can become your new little kitchen helper?

Here is a brief product review of some garlic presses available at Homes N Things Online:

The Alligator Mini Cutter

The Alligator Mini Cutter

The Alligator Mini Cutter

From the makers of The Alligator Original Onion Cutter, the Alligator Mini Cutter is in fact quite small in size (roughly of a size of a palm), however it does wonders. Besides cutting garlic it can also chop up smaller fruits and vegetables such as onions, shallots and chili. The Alligator Mini Cutter has a transparent collector so you can go through lots of garlic at once and see how much you have chopped up. Probably the most versatile product out of the 4 garlic presses. Dishwasher safe.

Chef Inox Jumbo Garlic Press

Chef Inox Jumbo Garlic Press

Chef Inox Jumbo Stainless Steel Garlic Press

The Chef Inox Jumbo Stainless Steel Garlic Press is made from quality 18/10 Stainless Steel providing exceptional sturdy construction and shine. Great advantage with this garlic press is with the physical properties of stainless steel, you don’t need to worry about any coating that will be peeled off in the long run. Bottom handle is slightly arched for a comfortable grip of the garlic press. The stylish and sleek design will fit nicely in your kitchen drawer. Dishwasher safe.

Oxo Garlic Press

Oxo Garlic Press

Oxo Garlic Press

The Oxo Garlic Press is probably the heaviest out of the 4 garlic presses, but once you hold onto this garlic press you can really feel the quality and sturdiness. Made from die-cast zinc construction, the ergonomic, rubber-like handles are slightly arched and will absorb pressure while squeezing, giving you a solid grip even when your hands are wet.  Features a built-in cleaner  – you just need to flip the handle to clean the excess garlic under the sink. Dishwasher safe.

Zyliss Susi 2 Garlic Press

Zyliss Susi 2 Garlic Press

Zyliss Susi 2 Garlic Press

The Zyliss Susi 2 Garlic Press is lighter than the Oxo Garlic press, but it still feels sleek and solid. The specialty of this garlic press is there are no peeling involved. Just put the clove into the hopper and squeeze, then all the fine crushed garlic will come out like a breeze. The holes have been designed for steady throughput of garlic, which is important in cooking since you want garlic to be fine and uniform in size,  so there will be nice consistency in the distribution of garlic flavour in your dish. The detachable cleaning tool is quite easy to use as well, but if you lose it then could be quite troublesome. Dishwasher safe.

All Zyliss products comes with a 5 year limited warranty – now that’s a piece of mind!
