5 Essential Kitchen Helpers for The Modern Kitchen

“Jom, let’s makan!”

If there’s one thing that’s hard-wired into Malaysia’s cultural DNA, it’s our love for food. But the past year has had us re-evaluating the way we consume meals. More and more people are trying their hand at cooking up feasts and easy meals at home, rather than turning to take-out meals.

After all, eating out or gorging on take-out meals on a regular basis can be unhealthy because the high-calories and large portions may increase the risk of obesity and other health issues.

In fact, did you know that Malaysia has the highest prevalence of obesity in Southeast Asia? Nearly 50.1% Malaysian adults are either overweight or obese*.

So, cooking at home is more beneficial to your health too! But it can be a pain sometimes. Home-cooked meals take more planning, time and effort than ordering take-out or just going out to eat.

Luckily, we have just the tools to help a newbie in the kitchen (or an old-pro looking for an upgrade) make home-cooked meals without breaking a sweat.
