Viktoria furnishing expert Tips for advisors "When cooking and frying, things often have to move fast. So place cooking spoons, spatulas and the like in a utensil holder within easy reach near the hob. That way you can react quickly. To make sure you're well equipped, it's also a good idea to have several cooking spoons and turners in different designs, on the one hand to save yourself the hassle of washing up while cooking and, on the other, to always have the right tool for the preparation at hand." - Viktoria, home expert
