Cooking Tools N Gadgets For Kitchen Treasure Hunt Event

When Dibs announced an awesome n uinque event for kitchen treasure hunt, i was quite surprised n asking myself with wat i can come up for this unique event..while searching in my kitchen cupboard i came across some tools which are quite old n still in use...just have a look...

Stainless-steel Tiffin Carrier...eventhough nowadays we r heating the foods in microwave oven, people carry their lunch to office with microwave plastic boxes, my husband take always this tiffin carrier for his lunch...This tiffin carrier is quite old n am using more than 11years...

This utensil is used to prepare Rice string hoppers...this is really very old utensil, used by my grandma, then by my mom n now am using them for preparing string hoppers with rice flour,wheat flour n ragi flour...

This is coffee Filter...who will say no to filter coffee??? eventhough we have loads of coffee makers, my mom gave me this coffee filter long back, am still treasuring this one..

This Utensil is called as'SoupiƩre' in French...this is quite french traditional utensil, every old french family will have atleast one soupiƩre at home to serve soups for dinner...

Old Beer Mug...My husband bought this beer mug before we got married, he always used to say this mug brings him lots n lots of old memories..my hubby's treasure...

I usually pound some spices to enhance the flavours while preparing gravies, this utensil is quite useful for me to pound, crush else to powder some spices...this is quite old one too...

In Tamil we call this as 'Muram'..this utensil is used to separate the grains from their unwanted brans, grains sometimes the skins of the peanuts etc..
