Have you ever thought that the cleaning methods and routines you are doing, may be affecting how your food tastes? What you clean today may change how tomorrow night’s dinner tastes. Here are some cleaning mistakes you need to change now.
Do clean your grill after each use
It is important to clean the grill after each use. Many people think that the charred bits of old food will add flavor to their new foods, but this is not the case at all. These bits can transfer to your newly cooked foods and give it a strange taste.
Do rinse your dishes thoroughly
You don’t want your food to taste like dish soap, do you? While it may take an extra few seconds, it is important to rinse your dishes thoroughly with warm water before you dry them.
Do get the last grounds out of the coffee grinder
While it may be a pain in the butt, you want to be sure you use some soap and water to clean it on a daily basis. If you leave the coffee grinds in there, the oils may turn rancid and will make your coffee taste weird.
Do clean up oven spills right away
If you are cooking something in your oven and something spills, don’t leave it there, clean it right away. If you leave spills there, next time you cook, the leftovers will release strange odors that will change the taste of your foods.
Do wash cast-iron skillets by hand
If you tend to put your cast-iron skillets in the dishwasher, this takes the seasoning off the skillet. Instead, use hot water, a small amount of dish soap and a sponge to clean.
Do rinse plastic containers after each use
After using plastic containers, if you don’t rinse them right away, food and juices will stick to the sides of the container and will produce strange smells that can transfer to other foods.
