This Top Chef Alum Stores Cookware in His Oven (And He’s Not Ashamed)
But when we opened Ed’s oven, we got a bit of a surprise: pots and pans everywhere! Yes, it turns out this pro chef stores his cookware in his oven, and he’s not apologizing for it one bit.
Ed admitted to us that because he has a small kitchen, he uses his oven as a storage closet. This means he doesn’t cook with his oven all that often because it’s too much of a pain to take everything out and then put it back in later.
This is actually very refreshing! How often have you felt limited by your kitchen, frustrated at the lack of storage space, and that everyone else must have it better than you? Take heart: If even a professional chef like Ed has to store his pots and pans in the oven because there’s no where else to put them, then you are assuredly doing great in your own kitchen!
And to all the home cooks who just aren’t into baking — it’s okay! Go on and store those pans in the oven! You’ve got Ed’s approval.
Thanks, Ed, for sharing your secret with us!
Now tell us, readers! Do you, like Ed, use your oven as a storage closet?
