Love Food Hate Waste have put together a series of helpful hints and tips on what kitchen kit to use to help reduce the amount of food that gets thrown away.
It's not just kitchen skills and knowledge that help us save money and make the most of the food that we buy. The right tools and equipment also help. But how do we ensure that we don't end up filling our kitchen cupboards and drawers with all sorts of kitchen gadgets that are never or rarely used?
Items such as ice cube trays for freezing leftovers sauces, storage tubs to save portions for the next day or to freeze or even graters can prove useful in the kitchen.
