153 Genius Cooking Tips Straight From Restaurant Chefs

Tip Highlights:

A cake tester is the ultimate (and cheapest) tool for making perfectly cooked steak and seafood.

Sure, instant-read thermometers are great for making sure your steak is cooked, but so is a simple cake tester (like this one for $4.33 on Amazon). They’re great for checking the doneness of veggies, seafood, and (most commonly) scallops. Place your cake tester in the center of a scallop; if the metal is warm, your scallop is done. This method is a bit less accurate when cooking steak, but it comes in handy when cooking rare steaks. (Gotta make sure the center is warm!)
