These cooking hacks will make your life a lot easier

We love useful tips in the kitchen: everything that makes cooking just that little bit easier! We love to cook, but some chores are just tricky and time consuming. These cooking hacks ensure that your dishes are ready much faster. We wish we knew this so much sooner!

It can be that easy.

1. Peeling eggs

Do you think peeling eggs is a lot of work? Not with this trick! Fill an empty jar or glass halfway with water. Put your egg or eggs in it and close the glass with a lid or your hand. Shake it well for a few seconds and then take out the egg. You will see that the shell slides off the egg easily. This trick also works with many eggs at once. Really handy!

2. Peeling eggs 2

If you think the first trick isn’t for you, you can try this next eggshell trick. Break the top and bottom of the egg against the counter. Then roll the egg vigorously across the counter with a flat hand. You will see the shell separate from the egg and slide off easily. Another option is to cut the boiled egg in half and remove the egg from the shell with a spoon.

3. Garlic

The following cooking hack prevents a lot of misery and smelly fingers. You only need a glass jar for this too. Put the whole head of garlic in the glass jar and screw the lid on. Shake the jar for a few seconds and you will see the garlic cloves separate from the bulb and peel off the skin around them. Open the jar, discard the skins, and return the garlic cloves to the jar to shake off the rest of the skins. After about 30 seconds, all skin is removed. That way you don’t have to mess with the cloves and use your fingernails. It will save you a lot of effort!

4. Peel kiwis and mangoes

Usually we eat kiwis by cutting them in half and eating the fruit with a spoon. But what if you want to eat a fruit salad? Just grab a glass and a knife. Halve the kiwi lengthwise with the knife. Then push the kiwi out of the skin with the edge of the glass. The same goes for a mango. Cut the sides of the mango and use the rim of the glass to unpeel the mango. It’s a lot easier than cutting the mango with a knife!
