Fourteen of Ramsay's best cooking tips — from effortlessly peeling kiwis to quickly ripening fruit.

If there's anyone who knows how to cook a great meal, it's Gordon Ramsay.

1. Adjust the coarseness of your black pepper by loosening or tightening the nut on your pepper mill.

2. To get more juice out of your lemons, roll them on your counter before juicing them.

3. Whenever you're using cling wrap, lightly wet your chopping board to prevent it from sticking.

4. Whenever you cook with foil, make sure the shiny side is up.

5. Whenever you make mashed potatoes, boil the potatoes with their skin on and peel them while they're still hot.

6. When mincing garlic, add a pinch of salt to your cutting board to help break it down.

7. Finish your scrambled eggs with cold crème fraîche to quickly cool them down and prevent them from overcooking.

8. Stick your cheese in the freezer for 10 minutes before grating it.

9. Instead of picking herbs off the stem one by one, use a knife to quickly shave them off.

10. Use lasagna sheets as a go-to pasta shape — not just for lasagna.

11. Effortlessly peel kiwi by using a spoon.

12. Rinse your hands in lemon juice after cutting hot peppers to get rid of the burn.

13. Quickly peel an entire head of garlic by smashing it and shaking it between two bowls.
