Default Things that you find in

How about we try to help everyone's vocabulary by each person coming up with one word for something found in the kitchen. If people like the idea when we've exhausted that we can change it to things found somewhere else. You can do relevant verbs too if you want.

Things that you find in the kitchen:

un cuchillo

a knife

abrelatas

I would not call this a "can opener"
because I am English
"Tin opener"
In England we sometimes call a can a tin

I open a can of coca cola
I open a tin of soup

Pelepatatas - Potato peeler

Utensilio para aplastar las patatas al hacer puré - Potato masher. (No wonder I couldn't find one. Eventually someone gave me one as a tres magos present!) There has to be a simpler name, surely!

We will occasionally speak of "tin cans" or "tin foil" (which brings us perilously close to the brink of opening up that whole aluminum/aluminium debate), and we occasionally yell out "tin roof!" while listening to the B-52's in the car, but mostly we use the noun and not the adjective to describe the object in question.

Especias -- spices.

Pasapurés- Potato masher?

I think pelepatatas is my favourite Spanish word as of now, it just rolls of the tongue

OK sorry to all of you. That was my fault so to continue with what you find in a kitchen.

How about cocinar a cook

and I found this translation

too many cooks spoil the broth

es difícil obtener un buen resultado cuando hay demasiadas personas trabajando en lo mismo

Miles perdones! Pero nada puede matar un hilo bueno.
