And now for something completely different in my fit2borganized blog……..
It has come to my attention that there is a very underused utensil in everyone’s kitchen that needs to get some attention……the SPATULA!!! 😆
This is one utensil that has so many uses, but from what I have seen isn’t given the attention it deserves.
Personally, I like to have a few sizes and varieties on hand. It is definitely my most favourite and most utilized kitchen utensil, but only by me ( in my household of 4!!)
I will grab it to cook with (heat resistant one) & use it for scraping, scrambling, stirring, flipping, mixing, among a billion other things!
I always use it for scraping the last bit of batter, sauce, topping, and whatever it is you are making. My family doesn’t do this and I hate cleaning a bowl and seeing so much stuff left behind! Pet peeve for sure!
One use people don’t seem to bother with using it to clean out your peanut butter jar (or any jar for that matter, mayo, ketchup, jam)!! You can get a whole other sandwich from the jar just by using a spatula. It seems that most people can’t be bothered and just use their knife and leave it at that! Nooooooooo! ! Get out that spatula instead and use this to make your sandwich and use every last but in that jar.
Now, I got this awesome tip from my dad….he uses it for cleaning by putting a cloth over the end! It is the perfect skinny width to get into those tiny, skinny places. It works perfectly to get into those crevasses and cracks!
I strongly encourage you all to invest in a few varieties of spatulas and start using them regularly today! They really are the best, most useful, easy-to-clean, underused utensil!
Your Simply Susan useful tip of the day! 😆
