Make life simpler around the home with some clever appliance hacks that your whole family can use. These tricks will not only make clean-up easier, but will also make your basic appliances versatile so that they can serve double-duty in your kitchen.Some easy household appliance hacks for your household include:
Take time to teach your family the proper way to load the dishwasher with a diagram. Laminate it to protect it, and hang it on the front of the appliance for a convenient reference.
Clean your blender by running it with a little water and a drop of soap. This will effortlessly clean the blades, nooks, and crannies.
Prevent boil-overs during cooking on your clean range or cooktop by placing a wooden spoon across the top of your pot- it really works!
Make more storage space in your fridge by adding a lazy-Susan or turntable that allows you to see what's in the fridge, and access it easily.
Make your appliances serve double-duty in the kitchen. For instance, use your air popcorn-popper for toasting seeds and nuts, use your pepper grinder for crushing other toppings such as nuts or cookie crumbles for desserts, or your coffee grinder for freshly-ground spices. Try using your waffle iron for a unique spin on potatoes, stuffing, or other side-dishes!
Make the most of your double ovens by using them for storage when you are not baking.
Designate a single burner for kids to use when cooking or preparing food. This will get them familiar with the settings, dials, and keep them safer in the kitchen.
