    a word

    What do we call the spoon, fork, knife, and other things in the kitchen?

    The "flat end thing" for turning fried eggs is a spatula;
    Usually I use a spoon for stirring, probably made of wood, possibly made of plastic.

    The thing you serve the soup with is called a ladle. Ladle is also a verb: "She ladled soup into a bowl."

    Red face Re: a word

    Thanks guys, I'm not a good cook, so for a start I think I need to know the things I'll be using for cooking.


    We have the frying pan for frying eggs, chicken, etc... How about the cooking "container" for cooking rice?

    And also the "big two-pointed fork".

    Re: a word

    I cook rice in an ordinary pot or saucepan. We don't eat rice every single day so we don't have a special cooker for it. (To tell you the truth I really cook rice in a covered glass dish in the microwave oven :))

    Oh, and another work for frying pan is "skillet."

    I would call the fork you're talking about a "meat fork," since it's most often used to hold a joint of meat, chicken, etc. while it's being carved. Points on a fork are called prongs, so you would say, "the big two-pronged fork." A two-pronged fork intended especially for cooking food on the grill is called a barbecue fork---they usually have especially long handles, and many are now made with built-in meat thermometers.

    I would say now that "I'll be frying eggs in a skillet using a spatula."

    And to fillet a milk fish, "I'll be using a two-pronged meat fork to hold it into place."

    We cook rice in a pot different from the other pots we have, it's is made especially for cooking rice. We call it "kaldero". Usually the other pots are usually of the same texture with the frying pan and the sauce pans, but this one is a bit rough inside out. Isn't it a "rice pot"?

    Nowadays, we have the electronic rice cooker for lazy people, ,All you have to do is pour water, 1:1 proportion, turn on and wait till it turns itself off.

    So where and how do you cook your meals?
