Sometimes you can feel defeated if you don’t have the kitchen tool you need to make a certain recipe. But, luckily there are substitutions, which you probably already own, to carry you through!
Unless you’re someone who bakes a lot, you probably don’t have a rolling pin on hand! But, if you’re in the mood for some biscuits or pie dough, don’t fret, you can always use a wine bottle! Whether it’s full or empty, the round shape will get the job done in no time.
A whisk is essential for things like pancake batter, making fluffy eggs, but not everyone owns one. The best way to get by without a whisk is to take two forks and tie them together with a rubber band! You can also attach a protein bottle mixer to a fork and use that as a whisk as well.
Whenever you’re using citrus in large quantities like for pies, salad dressings, or marinades, you don’t want to do it by hand. If you don’t have a citrus reamer handy, all you need are some tongs! Just cut the citrus you’re using in half and use the tongs to squeeze out all the juice in a snap.
