Another 10 more days to Ikea Singapore’s 40th anniversary! This isn’t a paid advertisement for the Swedish megastore, but because this Ikea fangirl absolutely found these products worked great for me. Plus, it doesn’t cost a bomb!
1. KONCIS Garlic Press
I use to think garlic press is an accessory for the kitchen snobs. I mean, you could easily smash garlic with a chef’s knife?
When a fellow homeschooling mom shared how this nifty gadget speeds up her time in the kitchen, I was sceptical. Yet after hearing several weeks of how good the garlic press is, I’ve decided to give this SGD$8.90 gadget a shot.
Boy, was I impressed! Firstly, I DID NOT have to peel the garlic. With just a press, I was able to get crushed garlic out of its skin. Washing the garlic press was simple since the insert is removable.
2. GRUNDVATTNET Colander
Use it to drain the dishes or as a colander. It certainly frees up space while I wash the dishes! For a price of SGD$5.90, the sturdy GRUNDVATTNET colander deserves a spot on your kitchen sink.
3. FINFÖRDELA Bendable Chopping Board
I love it when chopping boards come in a pair! The flexible chopping board makes it easy to pour food out without spillage, and anti-slip base helps give a firm grip on the countertop, The FINFÖRDELA chopping boards are now on sale at SGD$1.90 only!
4. CHOSIGT Grater with Container
The CHOSIGT grater comes with 2 graters. You can grate cheese or ginger into the container and store it for later use. I like that it comes with a lid as well. The CHOSIGT grater costs SGD$4.90.
5. DIREKT 3-Piece Kitchen Utensil Set
Essential kitchen utensils in my house – tongs, wok spatula and pasta server. Priced at SGD$9.90, these non-stick coated kitchen utensils can be used for all kinds of pots and pans.
6. PRUTA Food Containers, Set of 17
These versatile food containers are microwave-safe, dishwasher-safe and freezer-safe. Need I say more? Get the entire set for SGD$5.90.
7. ISTAD Plastic Bags, Assorted Sizes
Made from plastic which contains at least 85% renewable content, these ISTAD plastic bags can be recycled with common plastic. You can choose different sizes for your various needs. I use them to store everything – snacks, travel toiletries, toys, jigsaw puzzles etc.
8. DINERA 18-Piece Service
I really like DINERA’s muted colours and matt glaze. Comes with a dinner plate, side plate and bowl. It is dishwasher-safe and microwave-safe. Each part is sold separately so you can build your dinnerware set. Butterfingers me was relieved to buy them individually. 🙂
9. BEVARA Sealing Clips, Assorted Sizes
The BEVARA sealing clips keep all my dried food, cereal, fruits…fresh and crisp. 🙂 Cheap and effective!
10. UDDEN Kitchen Trolley
I live in a small space, so any extra working area is surely welcomed. The UDDEN kitchen trolley provides extra storage AND working space. Alternatively, the RÅSKOG trolley is a cheaper option that gives extra storage for all your kitchen tools.
And there you have it…my 10 favourite picks from Ikea for your kitchen. What are yours?
