Everyone needs a little help in the kitchen. OK, maybe not Mario Batali. But whether you're a regular Batali, or more of a heat-something-up-in-the-microwave guy, you'll benefit from these 10 essential kitchen hacks.
This video from HouseholdHacker outlines 10 must-learn hacks that'll simplify your life behind the apron.

All of these tricks and more are outlined in the video, which you can watch above. And don't worry, even Batali needed a teacher at some point.
