A kitchen staple, cooking spray has simplified so many processes and is one of those products that serves you beyond its given purpose. From making meals healthier and cooking processes easier to preventing food stains and squeaky cupboards, it’s a pantry staple we can’t get enough of. Here are five clever hacks for cooking spray.
1. Prevent your freezer frosting over
Spray a little cooking spray over your defrosted ice box, then wipe off any excess with a paper towel so that only a thin layer remains. This slightly oily layer prevents ice from building up and makes defrosting a freezer an absolute breeze.
2. Get messy, stay clean
Prepping food with your hands is part of the fun. Making homemade meatballs or burger patties? Prevent your mixture from sticking by spraying your hands with cooking spray before rolling or moulding – perfect every time! Make your meal as clean as your hands with B-Well’s colourant- and preservative-free cooking spray.
3. Silence the squeaks
Quieten those old creaks by spraying the hinges of your kitchen cupboard’s with cooking spray.
4. Tupperware as clear as glass
There’s nothing worse than a clean tupperware that looks murky. Prevent stains from rich foods, like tomatoes or curries, by spraying a bit of cooking spray over your containers before you fill them up. The oil acts as a protective barrier, stopping food from staining the plastic. Bonus: B-Well’s cooking sprays are microwave friendly, making meal prep effortless and minimalising dirty dishes.
5. Target soap scum
Spray over the grime build-up in your kitchen sink and leave for five minutes. Cooking spray helps break down dirt, so all you have to do is is gently wipe. Voila, as good as new!
