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

Very important: abrelatas -- the can opener

jonbulmer 4th August 2010 08:17 AM

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!

Una cosa que quiero en mi cocina es un lavaplatos o también se llama un lavavajillas - Dishwasher. Nombre se usa por la máquina y no la persona

Stephen 4th August 2010 12:35 PM

espátula spatula

A nice easy one to remember.

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.

Hola Uriel

Su Inglés es mejor que mi español.
Tienes razón ;)

Un microonda (masculine) :confused: Microwave.

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.:blush:

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

luisiher 7th August 2010 06:16 PM

escurre verduras - colender :D

Uriel 7th August 2010 09:33 PM

Miles perdones! Pero nada puede matar un hilo bueno.

Molinillo -- doohickey you stir up hot chocolate with. Se dice que el mejor bebidas chocolates se hacen con Abuelita chocolate, pero no sé -- siempre como el chocolate antes de se puede hacerlo.

Ajo, por supuesto. Cebolla, igualmente. :lovers:
