One of the secret to cooking quickly in the kitchen is good organisation. Having everything that you need at arm’s reach can speed up cooking. On top of that, we think choosing the correct storage, understanding my cooking style and labeling helps tremendously too.
STORING SALT, SUGAR AND CORN FLOUR IN HIGH GLASS JAR
I believe the kitchen is never done. I am always improving it to help with my work-flow. At this moment, I find storing ingredients in high glass jar very practical and appealing. Here are some clear advantages:
- Practical – The lid is light and easy to remove
- See-through – I can see the content so I won’t be guessing the content
- Easy labeling – A flat surface means I can label it easily
- Beautiful – I think glass jar looks much prettier than porcelain glasses typically used in Malaysian kitchen
- Huge – It’s big enough to put a huge amount of ingredient into it
- Has space for a teaspoon – As I like to try out new recipes, putting a teaspoon inside means I don’t have to look for a measuring spoon every time
As my cooking style evolved and experience increased, my kitchen slowly transform. At the beginning salt and sugar were placed in heavy porcelain jar with lid. I didn’t like that I can’t see through it and cannot store as much ingredients as I would like.
Flour, on the other hand, was kept in the cupboard with a sealing clip. Now that I use more corn flour in my cooking, I thought it’s time to place it near the stove.
