10+ Tagalog Cooking Utensils
1. Kaserola (Sauce Pan)
Almost entirely of the Filipino people are fond of eating soup and other types of stew. The saucepan or ‘kaserola’ is the cooking utensil that they use to cook and boil ingredients such as pork, beef, and vegetables. Not to mention, but the famous Filipino soup ‘Sinigang’ is cooked using ‘kaserola.’
2. Kawali (Frying Pan)
One of the commonly used kitchen utensils in the Philippines is the ‘kawali.’ Considering that there are countless street foods or ‘turo-turo’ in the country, using ‘kawali’ is perfect for cooking appetizing fried foods.
3. Pang-Lechon (Rotisserie)
Roasting a pig and skewing it on a long solid rod and being cooked on hot coals is called ‘Lechon.’ This roasting style is ordinarily served and eaten during festivals and special occasions in the country. Other types of meat like beef (Lechon Baka) and chicken (Lechon manok) can also be used instead of a pig.
4. Palayok (Clay Pot)
One of the most elegant kitchen items in Filipino cuisine is the ‘palayok.’ Instead of using metal cooking pans, many Filipinos used to cook their stews and soups in a clay pot. Using clay pot will make the Filipino recipes more savory and tangy. In addition to that, the most delicious Filipino food that is cooked in the ‘palayok’ is Sinaing na Tulingan.
5. Salaan (Strainer)
Apart from knowing that there are varieties of Filipino dishes, the Filipino people tend to eat fresh fruits during peak seasons.

It’s chow time!
In addition, wide strainers are also used to strain pasta or noodles in cooking Filipino-style spaghetti and ‘Pansit.’
6. Pandikdik At Pambayo (Mortar And Pestle)
‘Pandidik’ and ‘Pambayo’ are widely used in the Filipino kitchen. Seeing that Filipino soups need to have spices, these two kitchen utensils are used to grind pepper, salt, and other spices. The ingredients are added and mixed to make their recipes rich in flavor.
7. Sandok (Ladle)
Kitchen utensils used by Filipinos depend on the food that they will cook. For instance, cooking Filipino soups customarily uses ‘sandok’ or large spoons because they have a soupy and pastelike base.
