Posted by: | Comments (4)

Hi there

Ever wanted to know how Japanese restaurant make those shredded cabbages that go so well with deep fried dishes, like Tonkatsu (Japanese deep fried pork chop). I have been eyeing this gadget at Daiso for sometime, wondering if it works.

Alright, this shredder which comes in two colors, either in pink or orange, with this neon green cover. As it is from Daiso, all it cost is $2.

Hi There,

I have been experimenting different kids recipes since I have my son.  As a typical little boy, he loves his cars, and any food which I made with shape of a car or a ball, he will just love it. I came up with a very simple recipe idea where busy working mummies can use even on work day mornings, and would like to share it with you.

All you need are :
– cookies cutters, for me I use Daiso bento cutter, they are in fantastic shapes which you can use to make all sorts of cute or funky designs that will attract your little one’s attention.

Hi there,

I have been eyeing this kitchen gadget from Daiso  for a long time, as I love spring onions, & always put tonnes of it in some of my dishes, this onion shredder & peeler from Daiso look like some tools that I can take advantage of when I need to cook something that will need thinly sliced spring onions.

This tool comes with both the shredder & peeler and they comes with a plastic cover so you can either shred or peel without worrying how to hold it.

I tried it out today with the spring onions rather than leek, and I think it serves its purpose into shredding thinly sliced spring onions, those you can find on steam fish at restaurants, where they will sprinkle the spring onions all over it and drizzle with soya sauce. But I think it will be easier to to shred leeks rather than spring onions as I feel this gadget is easier to use on thicker vegetables.

Overall, I am happy with this $2 Daiso kichen gadget, and already told my mum to try using this when we steam some seabass next time. If you do not use the shredder, you can always just stick to the peeler that it comes with.

Hi there,

I am not sure if you have seen this sesame grinder from Daiso before, but for me this is one kitchen gadget that is a must have.

Have you been to Japanese restaurants like Tonkichi where they will serve their deep fried pork cutlet with a clay bowl of sesame & a wooden stick, so that you can grind and sprinkle the grinded sesame over the pork cutlet?

The clay grinder does serve it purpose when you need to grind the sesame, but it is really a hassle to wash it afterwards, and I totally resent it, even thou I like to sprinkle sesame on to my dishes, the hassle of having to wash and dig up the sesame pieces really deter me from using, so imagine how happy I was when I saw this sesame grinder in Japan a few years back. As a matter of fact, I saw quite a few restaurants over there have this, sitting next to the pepper and chilli powder, and once I gave it a try, I totally got hooked on it. haha..

While back in singapore, I chanced upon this exact same grinder in Daiso, and snapped it up happily & has been using it ever since. This bottle is purely use for grinding sesame as the grinding portion is make of plastic, it will not be any help if you were to grind pepper or any spices with a hard shell.

Usage is simple, all you need to do is to fill the bottle with some roasted sesame, which you can easily get from supermarkets, or you can get raw sesame and roast it yourself, (but remember to cool the sesame thoroughly before you put in the bottle, if not the moisture from the heat will turn the sesame bad in days)

Hold onto the white knob and rotate it in circular motion, and all the sesame will be grinded and goes directly into any dishes. You don’t even need to do any washing after that. Simple to use, and save up so much time & effort from all the pounding & grinding.

Besides the easy usage, it does makes a big difference to the dish, the grinded sesame does not only smell wonderfully due to it being freshly grinded, but the oil in the sesame will be released during the grinding, so you can taste the sesame flavour even more.

This is really one useful kitchen gadget, and what’s more? Its only $2, there is really nothing I can complain about. So do check it out when you are Daiso next time.
