Here I go, here I go, HERE I GO AGAIN! Girls, what’s my weakness, MEN! Okay then! No, wait – I meant Kitchen Gadgets! They are truly my weakness. Unfortunately, I don’t have the rapping prowess of Salt and Pepper, so Kitchen Gadgets Friday doesn’t quiet fit into their multi platinum single. Sigh.
The good news is that I have some fun new goodies for you to oogle over while you pretend to work. Seriously, how would you get through Friday without me? Hold onto your wigs, ladies and get ready for an extra fabulous edition of Kitchen Gadgets Friday.
iPerfect Meat Shredding Claws – If you make pulled pork or barbacoa tacos these are the perfect device. Then again, if you have crazy friends like ours, you will be terrified that they will act out the fight scene from the latest Wolverine movie. If you can get past your terror, these are a great tool for keeping control of large pieces of meat while you shred or carve it. iPerfect Meat Shredding Claws are a great gift for someone who smokes or grills meats. (or the perfect touch to your Wolverine Halloween costume)
FGN Multi-Function Kitchen Tool – This is really a work of art that can make it easy for you to eat lots of fruit. Included are: an avocado slicer, a citrus peeler, an apple slicer, a fruit grater, a citrus juicer, and more. It stacks together in a rainbow assortment that is even likely to get children (or picky adults like my hubby) want to eat more fruit just so that they can play with it.
CitriSqueeze Citrus Juicer – This is a spout for a lemon (or lime). You screw this little device into a piece of fruit and suddenly you have juice. It has 33 5-star reviews, so apparently it works. Frankly, it looks a bit odd, but it’s worth a shot for $9.00. It can be a great way to get a delicious citrus juice into your water. Nevermind, instead try it for your cocktails. Mmmm, mojitos.
The Aunchitha Ice Ball Maker – According to the description, spheres don’t melt as quickly as regular ice cubes. You can make them with fruit juice, mint or Kool-Aid to add to drinks or give the kids as something fun to eat and play with. Your guests will be amazed with these really cool ice cubes. If you have a scotch or bourbon drinker in your life, this is a great way for them to be able to cool their drink without watering their expensive cocktail down. (I want you to know I was on my best behavior as I was writing about this gadget – I really, really wanted to make an inappropriate comment or two. I will let you fill in the blanks yourself.)
Egg-Tastic Microwave Egg Cooker and Poacher for Fast and Fluffy Eggs – If you haven’t noticed from previous posts I have a little bit of an egg obsession. I like to think of myself as a pretty good cook, right? For whatever reason making poached or hard boiled eggs are my kryptonite! No matter how hard I try (or how many youtube videos I watch) I just can’t seem to get it RIGHT! What’s a girl to do? Get and Egg-Tastic Microwave Egg Cooker. It’s so easy even I can make a poached egg that I am proud of.
