Time-Saving Techniques for Foodies Out There

You might say I’m watching too much Hell’s Kitchen nowadays, but ever since I started cooking again, I realized how preparation for cooking or prepping is one important factor in the whole cooking process. The faster you prepare your ingredients, the faster and fresher the result would be. So, I decided to share these videos.

I actually discovered these videos years ago when they weren’t revealed yet as part of Sprint’s viral marketing campaign, when they were still on Waitless.org (the URL will redirect you to Sprint’s website).

We’ve posted before about how you can make homemade ice cream using a plastic bag and these:  salt, ice, and the ingredients for your chosen ice cream flavor. Now, fancy these:


I haven’t tried this one yet, but it looks easy. Some may argue that the potato would be cold. But, I don’t think 5 seconds in that pool of ice would affect the inside of the potato. Only the potato skin’s affected, that’s why it’s easier to peel or remove it. I’m going to try this next time I see potatoes in our ref.


Okay, this one might not be a hygienic way to peel eggs to most people, but I’ve tried this and it works. You might be a li’l breathless after though. Hahaha. Try this! Just make sure the eggs are already hard-boiled, okay? Hehehe.

See, you don’t need high-tech or fancy machines or expensive kitchen tools to make your food preparations at home quick and easy. There are ways to do things quickly and with less effort. Who would’ve thought that the things taught in Chemistry back in school or even in Physics can help you prepare food?! Amazing, right? ^_^

Have you tried any of these techniques at your own kitchen? If not, then, go ahead and try them and let me know how it goes. 🙂

Now, before I end this post, here’s another one that I personally love: how to quickly chill any soda. I’ve tried this a couple of times in the past and it does work. Next time I buy cans of A&W Root Beer, I’ll surely do this so I can immediately enjoy it as soon as I get home.

Cool techniques, huh?
