There are many different types of cookware cooking utensils on the market. There are so many cooking utensils to choose from that it can cause many a dispute between couples as far as which one they prefer.
There is a feeling that cooking utensils for the kitchen should match the pans needs, plastic for nonstick and metal for others. Well some of that is changing because there are some manufacturers of non stick cookware claiming that you can cook with them using metal utensils. If you do have cookware that can stand up to metal utensils then I would try to find cookware tools that can do double duty. So what do I mean when I say double duty?
Most people have kitchen utensils used solely for cooking in the kitchen and they have another set cooking tools made specifically for outdoor grilling. Well, I like to try and find cookware cooking utensils that can be used and work well whether your cooking on the grill outside or in the kitchen. Plastic type utensils are not strong enough and will not withstand the high temperatures that outdoor grills can produce.
So what would I look for in a new pair of cooking tongs or spatulas for example? Try finding one that has a longer handle than a standard kitchen utensil does and is made of a good quality metal like stainless steel. The utensil has to be strong enough to be able to use it for outdoor grilling but not so awkward or bulky that it can’t be used in the kitchen. You might pay a little more money for this type of cookware but you have eliminated the need for different types of grilling tools.
You may not completely eliminate the need for other tools like plastic or wooden utensils in your kitchen but when you’re looking at kitchen cooking utensils like tongs, spatulas or even a meat thermometer try to find one that is robust enough to perform double duty for the kitchen and when cooking outdoors.
