Welcome to this week’s installment of Kitchen Gadgets Friday. I found lots of great kitchen gadgets for you, some that are awesome, others that are a bit odd. In my quest for cool kitchen gadgets I can’t help but be drawn to the unusual and weird kitchen gadget. It’s hard bringing a product to market. I can’t help but thing about the the thought process that went into creating some of these.
I am gonna kick this week off with what I think is weird – a top for your toaster. It never occurred to me that you need to cover the top of your toaster. I guess it makes sense if you don’t think about hit. (haha – I kill myself)
Kitchen Gadgets Friday
Toaster Tops Toaster Top – This device is pretty simple: it is an aluminum plate to cover your toaster when you aren’t using it. The description says, “Toaster tops are a sleek, new way to keep dust and insects out of your toaster.” Well, if you have to cover your toaster so insects don’t get into it, you might have bigger problems than just bugs in your toaster. You can also purchase decorative knobs, so it looks pretty and keeps insects out with style.
Woodi Pineapple Slicer and De-corer – If you love pineapple, this is the best way to turn a spiny pineapple into a delectable snack. This simple and useful device cores your pineapple and cuts it into a neat spiral. For less than $10.00, this is a great way to turn a pineapple into a fun garnish or prepare it for baking.
VREMI Peacock Stainless Steel Chef’s Essentials 5 Piece Knife Set – I have been on the hunt for a great set of knives that won’t break the bank. These have a near perfect rating online and look like an art sculpture. They base swivels making it easy to grab in case you get attacked my Uma Thurman Kill Bill style.
KRUPS Hard Boiled Egg Cooker – Oh my egg! This is one of the most genius things I have ever put on Kitchen Gadget Friday!! I have struggled for years to make hard boiled eggs. I have watched videos and read a million tips on how to get the perfect hard boiled egg. For whatever reason, the shells of my hard boiled eggs NEVER EVER peel off right.
I had one Thanksgiving I threw them all away and we went without deviled eggs! The horror!! I had resigned myself to buying pre cooked hard boiled eggs… until now! Bring on the holidays biatches! I got the deviled eggs covered!
Simplehuman Grocery Bag Dispenser – For those of us that reuse our grocery bags, this is a nice neat way to keep the bags in the kitchen. No more bags of bags filling up your cabinets or pantry. You load the bags in through the top and simply pull one out of the slit in front. Neat, clean, and stylish stainless steel. Whether you use bags to store food or to reuse as trash bags, this is an attractive way to keep them close at hand.
