Sanskrit names of instruments used in kitchen

It’s very strange that in the modern world the names of of our household things have turned to English more than their regional lingual names. For example, we name cup, plate, and cooker, etc.

Forget Sanskrit, we don’t even use words from Hindi or any other regional language.

In our effort to provide awareness of Sanskrit, we are providing the names of some of the instruments used in kitchen from English.

We would love to hear from you if you know any other name or would like to know the name of any other instrument used in kitchen.

Feel free to write to us through the comment section.
