- Food Hacks Number 1. Don’t have a toaster to make that yummy toasted bread? It’s easy! Get an aluminum foil and wrap your loaf bread inside. Lay it flat on a table and lay a flat iron on it back-to-back on high heat. Remove it from the heat, open the foil, and enjoy your bread!
- Food Hacks Number 2.Cheese too tough to be cut by a knife? Get a heated glass and enclose the cheese inside of it. Wait for a few minutes and it should be easy for now to be cut.

- Food Hacks Number 4.To make a DIY ketchup container, heat a bottle cap lightly until the plastic is pliable to be punched in through with a toothpick. Punch a hole from the inside of the cap outwards, making a nozzle-like cap on the bottle. Cap the bottle tightly with a ketchup and squeeze like usual.
- Food Hacks Number 5.Instead of cutting a loaf of bread on top of its rounded part, flip it on the smooth, flat edge of it and slice through it. It makes cutting the bread easier and prevents it from awfully destroying or ruining the bread shape which looks like a mess.
- Food Hacks Number 6.To easily separate an egg yolk from egg whites, take regular bottle and remove the cap. Squeeze it lightly and aim the drinking part to the yolk. Release from grip and it should suck in the yolk separating from whites. Easy.

- Food Hacks Number 9.To peel a kiwi fruit, cut the upper and lower parts of it using a knife. Using the same knife, dent one side of the skin of the fruit, almost cutting but not cutting all the way through. Now, take a spoon and plunge it under the surface of the peeling. Start scooping off the skin all the way around of it and it should be peeled off nice and clean.
- Food Hacks Number 10. Instead of cutting off the top part of a strawberry to remove the leaves sticking on top of it (and apparently wasting a precious part of the fruit), take a straw and punch it through from the bottom of the fruit and out of the top of it containing the leaves. The leaves will come off and you don’t have to throw away a part of the strawberry.
- Food Hacks Number 11 .Squeeze lemon juice on an exposed side of the apple to preserve its freshness.

- Food Hacks Number 19. Want to share a Toblerone to a friend but you cut it downwards? You’re probably doing it wrong! Instead, rip a triangle of it by pushing it to the next triangle and you’d get a nice, ripped off chocolate that you can share.
