Join Christopher Matthew Spencer for an in-depth discussion in this video Kitchen tips, part of Making Money with VRBO.
- Equipping a kitchen that feels gourmet yet escapes…a housekeeping nightmare can be a challenge,…but I've got some tricks to help you.…If you're renting high-end, luxury accommodations,…it makes sense to have a ton of cool kitchen gadgets…because you can pass along the cleaning fees to your guests.…For more modestly priced and middle-of-the-road rentals,…I opt for streamlining things.…First of all, empty the drawers…and lay everything out and look at it.…Do you really need a lemon zester, a pineapple corer,…or five different kinds of spatulas?…Remove the blender, the food processor,…or other stuff that's not likely to be used.…
Fancy microwaves are a chore to figure out,…and I've regressed to using a simpler dial-type.…I've vanquished the coffee maker in favor of a French press.…It's easier to clean and cheaper to replace if it breaks.…I replaced a drawer full of knives…with a simple and affordable set in a wooden block.…A water kettle is a must, and this type…comes off the base without its cord.…Very handy.…
