Dental floss to cut cheese and other soft foods. Using a thumbtack to get the perfect boiled egg. Empty Tic Tac boxes for spices. Those are just a few of the innovative food hacks that could change the way you cook in the kitchen. 

According to the Daily Mail, kitchen company Kit Stone released an infographic detailing 50 handy culinary hacks to make working in the kitchen much easier.

One example is to use tongs to squeeze and juice a lemon. Another shows you how to keep bananas from over-ripening by wrapping plastic wrap around the stalk.

A clever way to use an iron is to wrap paninis in foil and press to heat them thoroughly. You can do the same method to cook bacon.

Check out the full infographic below to help you save a few minutes the next time you cook up your meal:
