High Five

Your hands may be the cleanest utensils in your kitchen. While baking/cooking, I wash mine several times before, during and after doing food prep. My spoons and spatulas get washed only once after everything has been prepared.

Hands as tools

Hands can be used to separate eggs, knead bread, mix scone dough, test food doneness, help check ripeness, act as cutlery, shape and flatten cookies, fondant etc. Not only do you get more of a workout using your hands, you save on electricity and expensive kitchen gadgets too.

As a kinaesthetic person, I also find using my hands when baking to be therapeutic and meditative.

How do you use your hands when cooking/baking?
