Have you ever wondered what makes a Chinese home different from any other home you have been to? It is what’s inside that makes the difference. Here are six everyday items I guarantee almost every Chinese person has in their house!

  1. 1 The Loyal Meat Cleaver

    Don’t be surprised when you see one of these meat cleavers in the kitchen of a Chinese home. The meat cleaver is the bread knife, paring knife, utility knife and boning knife all in one for many Chinese households. 

    It gets all the work done and is very essential for Chinese cooking. For many, this might just be the only knife they want and are willing to use for cooking.


  2. 2 The All-Time Favorite Rice Cooker

    What is Chinese food without rice? Rice cookers are so underrated. They are literally portable stoves. You can cook anything in them: vegetables, eggs, meats — you name it. You can even bake delicious desserts. 

    This is why rice cookers are the appliance many Chinese college students take with them to their dorms if microwaves aren’t allowed. Rice cookers are that good!

  3. 3 The Beloved Household Plant

    Lucky Bamboo

    Chinese people believe in feng shui so much that there are professional feng shui masters in China. The household plant of choice for many Chinese households is the lucky bamboo plant. 

    These bamboo plants are usually bundled together in lucky numbers such as two, three or eight. The plants are fairly easy to take care of and don’t need much maintenance. 

    They are the perfect household plants. Not only do they bring good luck, they can also brighten up your home and make it lively.
