Samanta’s tips-kitchen utensils

For the success of a dish it is essential that in the kitchen you use the utensils suitable for every type of food that we are going to cook. It is essential to have very clear what tools are really useful. We do not rely on products that are too “homemade” and commonly used as knives and pots that do not always reflect what are the real needs of use for the type of cooking we want to do; To cut each food properly, we should have a wide choice of knives so that we have the right one depending on the type of preparation we have to make.

The correct choice of pots and pans is also very important. To cook the legumes I always recommend to use earthenware pots that hold a lot of heat and release it slowly giving to foods (not only legumes, of course, but also roasts, soups, soups, etc…) A truly unique and special flavor because They exalt all the aromas and the fragrances!

To prepare a fish broth or a broth of meat in a short time, it is very useful the pressure cooker that in a short time will allow you to obtain an optimum result holding all the odors and the juices in a hermetic way to obtain a broth that will be truement And an explosion of taste. 
I leave you some examples of products that you can find both in stores and on-line stores…


So, before buying a tool, think a few seconds about the real use that we will do to make a purchase aware that over time will give optimum results to our great satisfaction!
