Choosing The Right Ergonomic Equipment

No comments
Preparing food is not supposed to be torturous, regardless of whether you are preparing fine cuisine in a 5-star restaurant or cooking a meal for your friends and family in the comfort of your own kitchen. Unfortunately, poorly designed kitchen tools often result in unnatural twisting, bending, and grasping of the hands which could result in painful tendonitis or carpal tunnel syndrome, the latter affecting between 4 and 10 million Americans according to the American College of Rheumatology.

We've covered how to cook the steaks, but how do you marinate them? The possibilities for meat marinades are endless, ranging from Korean Barbecue to Italian - depending on the meat you want to use. The best thing about marinating meat ahead of time is that it allows for the flavor to sink into the meat, without a lot of legwork. Marinating ahead of time is perfect if you have a Saturday barbecue coming up and you work during the week, or if you have to contribute a tasty dish to a communal event. We found a simple barbecue marinade to ...
