7 viral kitchen hacks I learned on TikTok that have changed the way I cook – Yahoo News

I’ve learned kitchen hacks on TikTok that have changed the way I cook.
Thanks to the app, I know how to properly dice an onion and instantly wilt spinach for pasta dishes.
My microwave looks new since I learned you can remove the crinkly film over the buttons.
TikTok taught me to use kitchen shears to trim leafy vegetables, and it’s so much more convenient than using a knife.
I never thought to use kitchen shears to cut produce. I mostly used them to open packages or trim the fat off of meat. When I saw this video from @testkitchen, my mind was blown with all of the potential uses, including quickly cutting vegetables. It’s now my go-to method for snipping herbs and chopping leafy greens.
The video has been viewed 12,000 times on TikTok.
I started storing opened blocks of cheese in their original packaging by slicing a neat replaceable top into the plastic.
Why use another plastic bag to store a block of cheese when you can just repurpose the packaging it came in? After I saw this TikTok from user @athomewithshannon, I started storing my cheese this way.
The video garnered over 615,000 views on TikTok.
A damp paper towel prevents my eyes from watering while cutting onions.
TikTok user @cerealeatingghost shared that since the acid onions release is drawn to moisture, a damp paper towel can absorb the tear-inducing chemicals before they reach the eyes. I was skeptical at first, but it actually worked for me.
The video went viral with over 563,000 views.
That crinkly plastic film on top of my microwave’s buttons? It came right off.
I always thought that the wrinkled plastic film covering my microwave buttons was part of microwave itself. Thanks to a TikTok by @danbach90 with 1.1 million views, I discovered that I could peel it right off and make my microwave look brand new.
Draining a pot of pasta over fresh spinach wilts it instantly.
Instead of stirring fresh spinach into pasta and waiting for it to cook, TikToker @healthykel‘s video taught me to put the spinach into a colander and drain the pasta over it. The hot water wilts the spinach right away.
The viral hack racked up 1.1 million views on TikTok.
I don’t have to buy green onions as often now that I know I can regrow them in a jar on my windowsill.
TikTok user @crystaljade1284 made a video about how to regrow green onions in a jar that racked up 6 million views. I’m not the best at keeping plants alive, so I’ve had to start with fresh green onions a few times, but this hack has definitely saved me a few trips to the grocery store.
To dice an onion into perfectly uniform pieces every time, I make a series of cuts as instructed by Le Cordon Bleu chef Alma Regalado on TikTok.
In a TikTok viewed 14.7 million times, @chefalmafernanda demonstrates the foolproof method. First, cut the top of the onion off, then cut the whole onion in half to create a flat work surface. After peeling off the outer layers, make lots of little slices along the onion’s natural ridges, and then cut through the whole thing lengthwise. Slicing down into the onion this way results in diced pieces that are all about the same size, which helps them cook evenly.
