Tips to Immediately Improve Your Cooking Skills

To become a better cook you don’t need to go to culinary school. There are lots of easy, small details to help you to get better and cook tastier food. Here are our top 10 tips for improving your cooking.

  • Select the freshest ingredients possible
  • This is unarguably one of the most fundamental parts of the cooking process. The quality of ingredients that you use can change your dish completely. This might sound simple but you ought to know that the success of a dish mostly relies on the ingredients quality. 

  • Invest in cooking tools and kitchen equipments
  • This is one of the areas that people neglect the most. 

    Many of us might think that having a pan, a spatula, and a knife is enough to get things going. 

    If you are serious about cooking and honing your skills then you should consider getting additional cooking tools and kitchen equipment to assist you further and make your cooking experience as easy as possible. 

    Just like any technician requires quality and the right tools to deliver on any given job, so does a cook require convenient pots and pans - and in this case FISSMAN brand cookware. 

    Whether you’re a great cook or love to try out new recipes, the higher the quality your pots and pans are, the simpler your cooking experience will be. 

    With FISSMAN, you can find a large variety of affordable and high-quality pan and pots with fine finishing to experiment with your cooking skills from anywhere around the world.

  • Keep your knives sharp
  • No matter what knife you use, it is of extreme importance that you keep them sharp.  Many home cooks think they will cut themselves if their knives are too sharp, but the opposite is actually true.  Dull knives easily slip off the food you are trying to cut, causing more kitchen accidents than I like to remember.  You can easily keep knives sharp with the use of a knife sharpener

  • Choose right cutting board
  • Cutting board is another very important tool in your kitchen. Avoid glass and stone cutting boards as they can dull your knives extremely fast.  

    From FISSMAN we recommend cutting boards are made of either wood or plastic composite.  They are both easy on your knives, are durable, and last a long time.  Plastic cutting boards are also great because they are usually dishwasher safe.  

    FISSMAN presents you with a plastic cutting board which is a combination of stylish, comfortable design and made with quality materials.The eco-friendly plastic does not absorb odours and has increased resistance to wear and abrasion. The chopping board is durable and will not blunt knives.

  • Timing is everything
  • Proper timing is one of the factors for a successful dish. Imagine that you will fry fresh fish on a regular pan and then place the fish immediately even if the oil is not hot enough. Thus, the skin of the fish will stick to the bottom of the pan. You won’t be in this situation if you only waited for the oil to be hot enough before frying the fish. Develop a sense of timing by knowing when to start and when to stop.

  • Don’t crowd the pan when sautéing
  • When cooking you need to see the bottom of the pan between the pieces of food properly. Too much food will lower the temperature of the pan, creating a lot of steam, meaning you won’t get good browning. 

    It’s also important to dry food before sautéing it and to make sure the pan is good and hot.

    Check out our collection of frying pans for frying, searing, and browning foods. Whether you’re just getting started or ready to expand your kitchen, we have a variety of quality frying pans and skillets that will have you cooking up a storm in no time.

  • Bake pie and tart crusts longer than you think you should. 
  • Pastry doughs taste much better when cooked long enough for the sugars in the crust to caramelize. You’re going for brown, not pale blond.

    Large and small, made of metal and silicone, stainless steel, round and rectangular – our store offers cake pans of any shape and size for equally high-quality and fast baking. Create your own cake recipes, and we will help you to choose the right cake pan with the best price and delivery to any city in the UAE. Cook smart with Fissman!

  • Use baking mats 
  • Baking mats are an essential tool for cooking and baking. They make the work easier, simpler and faster. The mats are great for anyone who enjoys baking but does not like to deal with the clumps of dough or batter that is usually left behind when cooking. The question is not whether you need them, but which of them to choose.

  • Eat with Your Eyes
  • We eat with our eyes first.  Presentation matters.

    You can easily add color to your meal with relevant garnishes. Another restaurant trick is to build your plate up vertically.  Height is impressive to the human eye.

  • Practice, practice, practice
  • This needs no explanation at all. Do a lot of practice by cooking for your family everyday and make experiments!

    Create; try new things; indulge yourself and your loved ones. FISSMAN wishes you every success in the culinary field!
