Home & Garden: The Basics

When making your house a home, the list of updates and upgrades can feel neverending. Whether you’re sprucing up your backyard or furnishing your living room, DealNews has the best home improvement deals for you!

6 Essential Kitchen Tools

When stocking your kitchen cabinets, it’s important to have the basics before you try to prepare all the great recipes you find on Pinterest! We used Bon Appetit ’s and Food & Wine ’s guides to help you have all the right tools when you need them!

1. 10” Stainless Steel Skillet

Experts suggest this kitchen staple for its durability and versatility. Stainless steel tends to be a bit on the pricier side, but since it can last nearly 20 years, this item is worth the investment.

2. Chef’s Knife

You can choose to splurge, or just buy a basic $20 chef’s knife. Know that you will likely be replacing the $20 knife more frequently than the $200 knife. Size matters, too — 8” is standard and typically the most comfortable.

3. Cutting Board

You’ll want to protect your counter, knives, and fingers with a sturdy wood cutting board. Look for a thick (around 2”) hardwood or a ¾” bamboo cutting board.

4. Measuring Cups and Spoons

Even if you’re the type to eyeball your measurements, it’s worth keeping a basic set of measuring spoons and measuring cups around. You can thank us later!

5. Food Processor

Chopping veggies can be tedious and tiresome; a food processor can help with that task ! There are also dozens of other uses for your food processor, including making nut butters, pie crusts, and even pasta dough!

6. Baking Sheet and/or Dish

If you’re interested in roasting veggies or baking sweets, it’s worth keeping one or both of these items on hand in your kitchen. You can find a baking sheet at a low price point, but may spend a bit more on a baking dish.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I organize my closet?

Having an organized closet makes life easier; you’ll be able to know where everything is with very little searching! However, creating an organization system can take a little work. The Spruce has a full guide to reorganizing your closet. Here are a few highlights:

1. Create a plan.

Be sure to include materials like a tape measure, especially if you wish to add shelving, baskets, and hangers.

2. Declutter your existing wardrobe.

Try separating your clothes into 2-4 piles (keep, donate, sell, and trash).

3. Purchase a closet organizer.

DealNews often has deals on closet storage!

4. Create a system that works best for you.

Sort by color or article of clothing (or even both). The most important part here is sticking to your system.

How many curtain panels do I need?

After measuring your curtain rod’s width, you can multiply the width by 1.5 for minimum fullness. Basic window coverings will need a minimum of two panels. Also note that curtains are measured width by height.

How high should I hang my curtains?

Typically, it is recommended that you install your curtain rod 4 to 6 inches above the window frame. The additional height will give the appearance of taller windows and a higher ceiling. Also remember to purchase curtains that will flow at least one inch to the floor for standard windows.

Check out this blog demonstrating common curtain mistakes.

How frequently should I water my houseplants?

Watering your plant is a key to keeping it healthy and alive, but knowing the frequency is just as important as the act of watering itself. If you overwater, the plant can drown or rot. If you’re underwatering, the plant will be unable to move its nutrients and die. So how much is too much and how little is too little? The answer depends on the plant.

The Sill recommends considering your plants’ natural environment when gauging how much water your plant needs. Desert plants like cacti and succulents tend to not require as much water as plants found in more humid climates, such as ferns or palms. Also consider the location of the plant — high sunlight plants will dry out faster than those requiring little to no sunlight.

It is also important to remember that houseplants require good drainage to avoid the overwatered root-rot conundrum. Be sure to remove any excess water after 8 hours to be sure that the roots do not rot.

What is the easiest houseplant?

Wanting to add a little more natural green to your home, but your green thumb is lacking? There are a few indoor plants that are very low maintenance you should consider. Popular ones include:

Known for their round leaves, these fun plants typically only need watering about once a week with just a little sunlight. A bonus to the price of the plant is you can replant the offshoots to grow even more!

This plant is truly low maintenance - while it’s best to water once or twice a week, this hardy plant will live on (and purify your air) even if you miss a week or two of watering. Much like the Chinese money plant, you can replant the offshoots to gain additional spider plants!

If you wish your plants would tell you when they needed watering, look no further than the peace lily. This plant will slightly droop when thirsty, and perk up very shortly after being watered!

This plant works hard for you with little effort on your part. Beyond cleaning the air, aloe provides skin care and is also believed to help aid in digestive health. This hardy plant thrives with limited watering and can stay indoors or outdoors (in warmer months).

English ivy is a beautiful plant to add to your collection and is best showcased as a hanging plant. Light watering every few days will likely keep this plant content, and because it doesn’t like full sunlight, it can grow in many places in your home.

This trendy plant brings a little jungle feel to your living space. With leaves that evaporate little moisture, the water maintenance for this plant is fairly low. This plant enjoys a bit of sunlight, but keep it off your windowsill, as it doesn’t thrive in full sunlight.

When do I add barbecue sauce to my food on the grill?

Adding sauce too soon can result in a burnt taste, due to the sugars burning on the grill. Adding sauce too late doesn’t allow the barbecue sauce to soak into the meat. Chad's BBQ has recommendations for the most common barbecued meats:

  • Chicken

Add sauce during the final 10-15 minutes of cooking.

  • Ribs

Add sauce during the final 10-15 minutes of cooking.

  • Beef

Apply before cooking, adding more every hour.

  • Pork

Add sauce during the last 15-30 minutes of cooking.

What’s the difference between a grill and a smoker?

A grill or a smoker makes a wonderful addition to your deck or patio, but understanding the difference will help you decide which is best for you!

Grills use direct heat to cook food adding to the temperature and ultimately reducing the cooking time. Smokers employ indirect heat, using heated chambers to cook food, which results in a lower temperature and an increased cooking time.

It is also important to note that the size of the meat you’re cooking should be a factor in the decision. If you wish to cook larger cuts like ribs and brisket, a smoker is a better choice. Smaller meats like chicken or steak are more suited to the grill.

Fans of smoking meat choose smokers for the tender fall-off-the-bone results, as well as that natural smoky taste. Fans of grilling enjoy the convenience a grill provides.

How do I get food to stop sticking to my grill?

When preparing food on the grill, be sure you first allow the grill to preheat before adding the meat. If food still sticks, consider these other recommendations by ThermPro :

  • Clean your grill.

If your grill isn’t clean, food is going to stick. Check out DealNews’ grill accessories for some good deals on scrub pads and brushes.

Using oil with a high smoke point — like vegetable oil, corn oil, and avocado oil — will ensure the oil doesn’t evaporate as quickly, so your meat won’t stick to the grates.

  • Oil the meat (not the grates).

Try drying and applying the oil to the meat rather than the grates.
