Kitchen Hacks to Make Cooking Easy

It’s great to have quick meals and easy recipes at hand for those busy weeknights, but take a look at some kitchen hacks that will make cooking any meal at home easier.

  • Clean As You Go: Getting into the habit of cleaning as you cook, including washing utensils, chopping boards and surfaces is a great way to make the cooking process easier, giving you space to work and maintain order in the kitchen. This will ultimately save you time in the long run, too.
  • Meal Prep: Use a little bit of your free time to prep individual parts of your meal in advance. For example, chop up onions and tomatoes and freeze them until they’re ready to be used, or marinade meats ahead of when you plan to cook them. This way, when it comes to the actual cooking, you’ll have everything prepped and to hand, making the whole process a whole lot easier. See here for more ways to meal prep.
  • One-Pot Wonders: Opt for easy recipes which only require one pot or pan, to save on time, effort and cleaning up. Dishes like stir-fries, soups and casseroles allow you to cook everything in a single pot or pan.
  • Sharp Knives: The merits of using sharp knives to make cooking easier is often overlooked. A sharp knife makes cutting and chopping ingredients so much easier and safer, reducing the time and effort spent on food preparation.

More Kitchen Hacks for Easy Recipes

  • Use Kitchen Gadgets: Use food processors, slow cookers and air fryers to make your life a whole lot easier in the kitchen. These appliances can chop, sauté and cook meals with minimal supervision, freeing up your time for other activities.
  • Batch Cooking: Make mealtimes even easier by preparing large batches of meals and saving (or even freezing) individual portions for later use. This way, you can have homemade, ready-to-eat meals on hand for busy days when you don't have time to cook from scratch. Our Senior Recipe Development Manager, Mimi Morley, loves to batch cook easy dishes like chilli con carne or chicken masala curry so that she can grab and go when it comes to lunch the next day. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
