Stainless Steel Skewer
I bought this stainless steel skewer from Phoon Huat a few years back and it's really one of my essential tools in my kitchen. An inexperienced cook & a bad time-keeper, I've performed countless "Skewer tests" with this small but mightly tool. I'll poke it through all kinds of food to see if they're cooked.
1) Poke through potatoes to see if they go through easily.
2) Poke through a cake and check that it comes out clean.
3) Poke through a chicken thigh to see if it pokes through easily and that no blood flows.
4) Poke through fish to see if it pokes through easily.
