Today I'm coming at you with some kitchen gadgets. I actually have a little kitchen gadget "problem". I'm a "Gadget Girl". I sort of have more than I know what to do with but each one really serves a purpose (I promise!). I'm all about making life easier and these are items that I find extremely useful.
Hold on to your seats because here we go...
#1. My Rachael Ray "Spoonulas"
Is it a spoon? Is it a spatula? I don't think I'll ever know or really care because this is the most-used utensil in my kitchen. I use it in stir fries, in a pot of pasta, to mix things together, and to scrape bowl clean. I love that it's heat-resistant to 400 degrees and that it comes in my favorite kitchen color - RED!
#2. Zyliss Garlic Slicer
My Hubby LOVES garlic. I swear he's a vampire. The worst part about this for me is slicing it. My hands smell like garlic for days! Well - this nifty little garlic slicer (or mini mandolin) protects my fingers and hands from smelling like garlic. What else do I love about it? It's easy to clean, works very fast, and garlic slices are even!
#3. Nutri Bullet
Are you juicing yet? Well, I definitely recommend it. Juicing has become a morning ritual in our house. We purchased the Nutri Bullet and our mornings changed forever. We emulsify vegetables and fruit in the morning and feel better. My Hubby has lowered his blood pressure. I've dropped a few pounds. We love this thing and can't imagine not having one. Did I mention that you can even use this to make a quick fresh tomato sauce? The Nutri Bullet is so powerful and barely takes up any of our counter space. This is my newest kitchen gadget but one that's sure to stay around for a long time!
#4. Vacu Vin Pineapple Slicer
Have you noticed the prices on pre-cut fruit at the market? It's crazy. I manage to spend a fortune just for convenience. I love my Vacu Vin Pineapple Slicer. What I love about this model over the others is that this one comes with attachments in three different sizes. Different sized pineapples? No problem! This thing will core and slice your pineapple in no time. Instead of spending $6.99 on pre-cut pineapple at the market, you can save yourself a few dollars and buy a whole pineapple for around $2.99 to slice at home.
#5. Kuhn Rikon Can Opener
Have you ever cut your hand on a sharp can once you've opened it? This used to happen to me all of the time. Not anymore! My Kohn Rikon Can Opener reverses the canning process. No sharp edges. It's awesome! As a bonus, it even functions as an opener for jars, soda cans, and bottles. LOVE this thing!
So there you have it, folks! These are my "Top 5 Kitchen Must-Haves". Hope you enjoy these. Have a fabulous weekend!
