What utensils, tools, and implements have played a pivotal role in your culinary career? Share them with us in this week’s Weekly Topic Inspiration challenge!
To write particularly successful Hubs on this subject, I have two big recommendations:
1. Make your Hub a product review (insert the Review Capsule, select single person review, and enter the product’s name). This will enable you to give a gadget you write about a star review, which will be visible in search engine results.
2. Include original photos of the tool / gadget (ideally, in action!). If you can’t include original images, make sure that you’re at least sourcing high quality images that you have the right to use. See our Learning Center guide on proper image use for pointers on that front.
Not quite sure what to write about? Here are some search-friendly titles I’ve found through the Google AdWords Keyword tool (which see a competitive number of monthly searches): An Essential Kitchen Utensils List The Best Kitchen Utensil Holder A List of Kitchen Utensils Every Cook Should Have The Best Kitchen Utensil Set Cool Silicone Kitchen Utensils The World’s Best Kitchen Gadget Victorinox Kitchen Knives: A Balanced Review The Best Japanese Kitchen Knives Kitchen Knives: Reviews from an Expert The Best Chef Knife The Best Global Knife Set The Best Kitchen Knife Set Henckels Knife Set: A Review How to Select a Knife Block Set Stellar Kitchen Knife Sets To create search-friendly titles of your own, follow the steps outlined in this Learning Center guide.
If you'd like to join in on this week's topic by writing a Hub, follow these steps: 1) Stop by this week's Weekly Topic Inspiration Question. 2) Click the green button "answer this question". 3) Click the gray button below the box (leave that empty) that says "make a Hub about it." 4) Give your Hub a very specific title, like Easy Summer Gardening Projects for Kids or Challenging Summer Activities for Teens 5) Create good quality original content that hasn't been covered before. 6) After you publish your Weekly Topic Inspiration Hub, come back to this forum thread and post a link to your Hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why.
Here are my two contributions - I love to cook - first one is on the amazing pressure cooker, the second is on cookie making cooking utensils. I think I screwed up somehow, should have put Product Review first.
It's old fashioned but new fangled all in one because it saves energy and time, which is convenient. Also, because it's water based, you are eating less calories - no oil, frying, breading etc. So, something to think about. Definitely read the directions, it's a pressurized cooker, and it works like a charm.
I was amazed at how many shapes, sizes, colors and materials the common spatula came in. For this hub I consulted with my friend who is also a chef. She gave me some excellent advice about the six utensils no chef could live without and every kitchen should have. The title of the hub is "The Best Kitchen Utensil Set" http://marleneb.hubpages.com/t/322c96
Okay, I am already having problems. I set up the Hub, but I do not know how to get the Review Capsule. Where is it? I titled this Hub, "The World's Best Kitchen Gadget." Is that part of the problem? I don't see Review Capsule on my list.
That is good to know...I know I read this before but somehow it was confusing (most things are for me these days, haha) Single: you are reviewing a product Multiple: others are reviewing your product, right? ???
Right, Denise! I thought I needed my eyes checked and my head examined because I was looking for an individual thing that designated a product review. I've done a couple of product reviews, but I did not take advantage of the "single" in the the past.
It was a pleasure doing this Hub. I bought a lemon squeezer for the first time in my life. Now, my hubby and me fight over it. I use the squeezer for my lemons, and he uses it for his limes. This treasured gadget will never make it to my kitchen junk drawer!
Hello all, I'm still kinda new here and have only just really discovered the forums. I love the idea of a kitchen utensil hub and already have 2 things I can think to write about, Im such a home bird with my Kitchen gadgets so this is right up my street. thanks for getting the creative juices flowing again as I have been stalling a bit this month.
Well my slow cooker hub is up, its not a review just a general slow cooker hub, although I may do a proper review one day too, but now youve got me thinking that I could review quite a few of my kitchen items as we have started upgrading our kitchen items a lot over the last year! So have bought quite a lot of nice new stuff. So I may be able to get a few more written maybe, thanks for getting my thinking cap working again!
Enjoyed doing the last WTI so much I thought I'd have another go. A couple of firsts for me in this one. First video and first product review. I've chosen the One Touch Automatic Jar Opener as the subject matter because I really do think its great. So here it is :-)
These are some FANTASTIC firsts! AlanRimmer, I totally love the video, and am glad you included the Review Capsule tool. I'm tellin' y'all, it really does make a difference when it comes to making your Hub more attractive in search results.
Totally loved this Video. I didn't know such devices even existed!
I need one of these! I left you a novel why I should buy the One Touch Automatic Jar Opener, Alan, but I don't know what happened to it. Yet, another Senior Moment! I do have trouble with opening jars, and need my hubby's assistance. Unfortunately, I have to wait until he comes home from work. What an awesome Hub! Oh, I remember! I left you my comments on your Hub!
Hello again all. I have written a hub about my best kitchen gadget! http://daisydayz.hubpages.com/hub/The-k … low-Cooker I hope you all like it, my slow cooker is possibly my best friend in the kitchen, although I have a few other hubs on this topic in my head too! Hopefully I will have time to write them over the next few days.
I believe Simone introduces a new topic on Tuesday morning? If you are working on a WTI, complete it, but don't meet the deadline, you can publish it anytime you feel like it. The WTI is meant to get you going because you can either use the titles provided for you. Or you may provide your own. The idea is to write, meet a deadline, and learn a little about SEO. And you will have the support from other Hub authors. Also, you have the chance to introduce the title of your article to all of us so that we can check it out!
With posting photos, my tips are: keep up with the great attribution and legal use, and find large, pretty photos to use (though better yet, take your own photos and upload them to HubPages to use whenever you like).
I don't think so...nice thought though, I have one that I will post when this thread goes to the HH forum. Photos are done, but I haven't had the chance to sit and write, due to my work schedule. At least you got yours in.
Y’all posted some fantastic Hubs when our WTI theme was useful kitchen tools and gadgets, so I thought we might play with that general subject again, but this time focus on consumer electronics and personal gadgets. What device can’t you live without? If it’s something fresh and surprising...
