Maintenance Works at the Kitchen

The kitchen I have here in my new place is just too small and enough for a studio-type room for single occupancy. And since I still have a few more days free from another loads of busy days, I am thinking of working on my kitchen because the sink is somehow cloggy and the faucet is leaking.

But I only have one (1) problem; I don’t have much of the materials and equipments I need to have. I asked the building caretakers if they can provide or lend me some, since I am also paying for the maintenance of the unit, they said they can but I need to wait for two (2) to three (3) days because they need to talk to the owner first. With that said, I thought of just purchasing my own equipments. Though a bit pricey, but at least, at anytime I need one to use, I can just easily grab from my toolbox then. A friend of mine suggested checking http://www.reidsupply.com which, according to her is one of the many reliable online industrial shops.

However, M disagreed with my idea. He instead told me to wait until he could visit my place so he’ll just the one to work on this which I found a better idea than mine. LOL!

What’s Inside Your Fridge?

As we always hear, expect always the unexpected. And this has been very true to me lately because when I open the fridge in the dormitory, I saw three sprockets. And I was really wondering why sprockets were kept on the fridge?

What really happened that day was that I was supposed actually about to get myself the frozen cold milk I bought an hour ago before that event. Just imagine on that small gap of time, somebody intentionally put the sprockets on the fridge which really wondered me much what do the owner have eaten that for all the possible places and shelves in the dormitory, it is the fridge where she really kept her sprockets.

Anyways, what about you? What’s Inside Your Fridge?

Cutting Edge Cutlery

When it comes time to buy a new knife or an entire cutlery set there’s often the desire to buy the newest and state of the art – ceramic knives were all the rage at one point and it would be easy to get caught up in the buying frenzy if you did not take a moment to do your research. When you invest in something like a JA Henckels knife set you are in it for the long haul – the JA Henckels brand has been around since 1895 so they have seen a lot of cutlery fads come and go yet they still manufacture forged, stamped and Never Need Sharpening cutlery that stands the test of time. Whether you seek a boning, paring or butcher’s knife, JA Henckels is a place to look.

Each knife is specifically designed to meet or exceed expectations for the task at hand. A boning knife is a type of kitchen knife with a sharp point and narrow blade. It is used in food preparation for removing the bones of poultry, meat and fish. Most boning knife blades are 5 to 6 ½ inches in length (although many brands extend up to 9 ½ inches) and feature a very narrow blade. Boning knives are not as “thick” as some of other popular kitchen/butcher knives, as this makes precision boning, especially in deep cuts and holes, much less difficult. A stiff boning knife is good for boning beef and pork, but a very flexible boning knife is preferred for poultry and fish. JA Henckels offers a wide range of boning knives at various price points.

When shopping for any knife design and construction are critical factors to consider; the knife must be smooth with no rough spots, sunken rivets or other irregularities which might harbor germs and breed bacteria. Knives should be wiped clean with a damp cloth and never placed in a dishwasher or submerged in water for any length of time.
