25 Awesome Kitchen Gadgets

By April 1, 2014 kitchen tips, recipes

Gosh I miss a big kitchen.

I can’t even remember what it’s like to have kitchen appliances that do things like chop an onion in seconds or dispense batter in even amounts.

Even just simple things like sharp knives and not having to whip cream by hand sound like luxuries to me.

To help with the kitchen inspired longing I started a Pinterest board of  kitchen bucket list – filled with wish-list items for my dream kitchen.

After a few hours of browsing I discovered loads of super-cool kitchen gadgets and I just had to share them with you.

    I see a lot of lists of awesome kitchen gadgets, but most of them focus on the novelty and the quirkiness of the products instead of their utility. This is a great list, and i can hardly find a product on the list that i could say i wouldn’t use.

    I think most of these are gimmicky to be honest – just the cleanup involved would be too much to justify using them. Especially the fruit and vegetable chopper. If you have sharp knives and good techniques, it only takes a minute to chop up all your vegetables.

    However, I did have the Joseph Joseph garlic crusher and I quite liked it – until it broke while I was using it. I think there’s a version that’s pure stainless steel (no plastic), so will be looking out for that in the shops.

      You’re provavly right – many are a bit gimmicky but I’m a sucker for a gimmick. My fav is the herb sizzors! Thanks for stopping by.
