Here we will discover some of the commonly used kitchen appliances in Lithuania. While the list does not accumulate all the tools, we have mentioned some that are constantly used in Lithuanian kitchens to produce the best food in the world. Let's begin.
Frying pan or Keptuvė in Lithuanian Kitchen is one of the most important parts we cannot miss. Although we see a frying pan in every household kitchen, it is specifically used to make potato pancakes, fried bread, etc., which are among the traditional dishes of Lithuania. In fact, wooden pans, plates, and bowls are also quite common in Lithuanian restaurants and eating lounges.
When we hear grated potatoes with sour cream and chicken, we immediately think of a grater. Trintuvas, which means Grater in Lithuanian, is another important kitchen appliance. From recipes that require grating boiled potatoes in salads to green onions in sandwiches, a Trintuvas always comes in handy. Also, European countries are fond of different kinds of salads. Thus, a Trintuvas is a must-have in every household.
Talking about other devices, a Puodas is quite essential. Especially when it comes to making recipes like stuffed dumplings, boiled potato salad, soup, etc., Puodas are always needed. Even clay pots are quite common. Different kinds with unique shapes and colors are manufactured in Lithuania. One person may also refer to these pots to decorate their house.
Griddle or Keptuvė is also quite significant in the Lithuanian kitchen. Mainly when it comes to pancakes or bacon, the griddle becomes an easy way out. Moreover, in most Lithuanian get-togethers, people sit together and fry eggs, sausages, pancakes, meat, and bread together with a griddle, making it one of the best ways of spending time and making memories.
Have you ever heard of the Lithuanian special fourteen-layered honey cake? It is one of the most popular Lithuanian cakes after Sakotis, the tree cake. And when we talk about such amazing desserts, a Mikrobangų krosnelė is a must. Most households in Lithuania have a Mikrobangų krosnelė for baking. It is also used to cook and serve items that are much more convenient to be made in a Mikrobangų krosnelė—for example, potato pudding, lasagna, etc.
How can we not talk about a grinder? From mixing ingredients to mincing the meat easily, the Malūnėlis is one of the essential parts of the kitchen appliances. Most Lithuanian meals like the soup, salad, drinks, or even the stuffing of the dumplings and pancakes require the ingredients to be mixed and ground properly. Thus, the services of a Malūnėlis always come in handy in Lithuania.
Lithuania's most relevant utensil is the Bread knife or Duonos peilis. From cutting dark rye bread to fried dark bread, you will always require a bread knife to make your work easy. Thus, you are sure to see bread knives everywhere in Lithuania. After all, Lithuanians cannot live without potatoes and bread.
In this section, we will go through some more utensils vocab in Lithuanian to enhance your vocabulary. Although we learned some of the commonly used tools earlier, knowing these will enable you to identify all the necessary kitchen appliances in the Lithuanian language. So, keep reading.
