YCA Franchise Owner Offers Advice on How to Better Utilize Kitchen Space

We’re all guilty of it – countertops and drawers get cluttered with small appliances, tools and gadgets that may or may not serve a specific purpose. Many home cooks eschew one-use tools (think garlic presses, meat claws and egg cubers) because of the space they take up – so this fall, why not take a closer look at your kitchen gadget drawer, and see where some cuts can be made?

Some of our favorite ways to cut down on clutter:

• Invest in a quality chefs knife. Egg cutters, avocado slicers, scallion shredders and more can be tossed, recycled or donated – a sharp knife will make easy work of these kitchen tasks.

• Dig out the shredding disks on your food processor. Remember those metal plates that came in the food processor box? They’re probably in a cabinet somewhere, possibly still in their bags. Find them, give them a wash and put them to good use – you can shred, puree and thinly slice food with ease!

At Young Chefs Academy, we teach our students the value of organization – not only to save space, but also as a way to be aware of time and cleanliness while cooking.
