It’s no big secret that I’m addicted to kitchen gadgets. I love them. The minute I see them, I wonder how I will continue to function if I don’t buy it RIGHT NOW. This is why QVC loves me, I think. Anyway, here are a few things I found this week that I never even knew existed - but now I don’t know how I will live without them.
A cutting board is a cutting board, right? Oh, not so, my friend. Look at this Index Chopping Board, a super-cool set of four color-coded boards designed to avoid cross-contamination of food – red for raw meat, white for cooked foods, blue for fish and green for vegetables. That’s nice and all, but just look at the fun presentation:
I hate using a measuring spoon for oil, so I need this Press and Measure Bottle. Just give it a squeeze and get an exact measurement of oils, salad dressings, soy sauce, whatever:
And, speaking of perfect measuring, this looks a lot easier for perfect pasta portions than pulling out the food scale:
If you like ice cream (and, really, who doesn’t?), how about this Scoop and Stack Ice Cream Server? Jam it into some rock-hard ice cream and pull out a lovely cylinder of yumminess. I’ll bet you could find lots of other foods you could use this for, as well.
I love shish kebab. And I REALLY love grilled vegetables. But I’m too lazy for all that skewer threading crap, so these Kabob Baskets for the grill have my name all over them:
Collecting recipes is something of a hobby for me. I tear them out of magazines and print them off from the internet and write down ideas I don’t want to forget. As a result, I end up with a huge, disorganized pile of recipes that are never going to be made. I finally organized them in a large 3-ring binder, using full-sized page protectors, but this Clipped Recipes Book is much prettier than mine:
And speaking of recipe organization, I am So Excited about this product, I am about to wet my pants. Combining my love of recipes with my love for gadgets and my obsession with the Amazon Kindle, the Demy Electronic Recipe Reader is something I don’t really need, but oh boy, am I ever coveting. Available to preorder on Amazon right now, at $299 it is making me pray for a complete economic recovery by May.
And, just for fun, how about some pants for your eggs?
