TikTok kitchen hacks

TikTok may be inundated with dance challenges, but that’s not all there is to the Chinese social network.

Here are some kitchen hacks that we’ve learnt on TikTok:

1. Vegetable peelers are important. Use them to slice frozen butter or hard cheese like Pecorino Romano or Grana Padano. You can even use them to create thin, perfectly sliced onions for salads and burgers.

2. Boil your wooden spoons to deep clean them.

3. Powdered sugar is just ground up white sugar. Mayonnaise is just egg yolk, olive oil and lemon juice.

4. Add a cube of ice to prevent water from boiling over.

5. Honey dippers prevent honey from dripping all over the place. The key is to keep rotating it.

6. If you’re not planning on using all of your frozen food in one go, cut the bag open in a V-shape, then tie the two edges together when finished and pop it in the freezer.

7. After cooking something sticky like caramel or toffee, clean the pot by filling it with water and boiling it on the stove. This will dissolve the sugar and help you clean your pot effortlessly.

13. Easily slice a red, green or yellow pepper by simply making 4 incisions into a fresh pepper and peel apart the sections.

14. Whiten the colour of buttercream by adding a drop of violet food colouring to cancel out the yellow tint.


Buttercream has a yellow tint to it, so when I need it to be white, I add a small drop of violet food coloring. The purple cancels out the yellowing, resulting in a clean white buttercream. #cakedecorating #buttercream #lifehacks #bakinghacks #caketok #baketok

15. Get rid of oil or grease by laying down a sheet of aluminium foil in the sink, drain the oil and wait for it to harden. Then wrap it up and dispose of it.

16. Easily peel the shell of boiled eggs, by placing it in a mug, covering the top with your hand and shaking it to crack open.
