A wallpaper seam roller makes a decent pastry roller for situations
where the usual big roller wont do. Now I've got a lot of lemons to
zest, and it strikes me that a manual wood rasp would probably do a
much faster job of this than the traditional lemon zester.
Any other examples of DIY tools being good for cookery? I guess some
kind of saw would be good for boned meat, there's the blowtorch for
browning and caramelising, hammer and screwdriver for cutting up
frozen foods... any others?

I use my plaster mixer and cordless drill to stirr the porridge in the
mornings. What I hate though are all the crunchy bits I keep finding in it.
My wife thinks that it's posh porridge with added crunchy bits.

Talking of SDS again (I darent start another thread ..).
Whilst In B&Q earlier I noticed their SDS drills are now 23.99 or

Challenge one I got from Argos some weeks before this 'other' (cheapo)
model came out.
I did notice on the box it mentioned a 'clutch' but no mention of a
Anyone got one (I think it was one of the 'Proline' models (or
whatever their cheapo line's called))?

A Mole Wrench is wonderful for cracking nuts and for getting the meat out of
crab claws. You can apply a very large force over a controlled distance
without going on and smashing the whole thing to pulp.
It works the other way round to - I use my wife's self-lighting caramelising
blowtorch to light my large plumbing model.
P.S. I hope you wash the fungicidal gunge off your wallpaper roller before
using it on food!

Oh its never seen wallpaper, I got it for cooking. Just seems to be
one more DIY item I use for cookery. Looks like some people thought I
was kidding - funny maybe, but I've used quite a few diy tools on food
I dont know if the roller is dishwasher proof yet, but its cheap
enough that I'm going to try some time. Gad ya compare kitchen
implement prices with DIY, if I get poorer the kitchen will become the
It always was here, until I screamed and raged and sulked and ... well I'm
sure you know what I mean.
So was the sitting room (for dismantling the motor bike) and the dining room

Used to be a comedy series on ch4 called "home improvement" in it Tim
Allen presented a spoof show called tool time and they had an episode
about construction site cooking where a plumber made a grilled cheese
sandwich using his blowtorch.
Think its rerun on the Disney channel all the time.
Since we're lapsing into nostalgia, my late father used to drive a steam
roller (i.e. real steam - none of your diesel rubbish!) back in the 1920's.
He told me how the workmen would keep the most recent new coal shovel for
cooking and - using a little lard oil (supplied for some part or other of
the steam engine) - would cook a breakfast of bacon and eggs over a roadside
