|Save money (and cabinet space!) by discovering new uses for your old kitchen standbys. |
Tired of shelling out on kitchen equipment—however handy it may be—we turned to Kate Merker, food & nutrition director for Woman's Day, and Cynthia B. Keller, a chef instructor at Culinary Institute of America, for advice on how to use what you already have in your cabinets to achieve what one of these specialty cooking tools can do. The results: A win-win for your pocket book and dinner table.
cast iron skillet with a flat bottom will do the trick since it doesn’t warp when you put it on the stove, and you’ll get a relatively even heat conduction, according to Keller. Plus, she adds, “If well-conditioned, they become naturally non-stick.” In a pinch, a sauté pan would also work, she says, but they are prone to getting a hump in the middle, which will cause uneven shapes and heating.
