Nifty Kitchen Gadgets

Heres a run down of our favorite must have nifty kitchen gadgets, with cool designs and great uses!

  1. These are all great gadgets Rebecca! I love that potato masher and the garlic grater.

  2. In addition to the Danish Dough Whisk and poach pod, a couple of my favorite must haves are: a microwave food cover, bash ‘n chop, non-stick bbq stir fry for grilling vegetables, pumping oil mister and of course my $3 solution to a 30 year problem, a pot clip that holds spoons on the rip of my pot or mixing bowl.

  3. Reeni: thanks Reeni I have both of those
    HP: oh the pot clip sounds very handy

  4. I would go for the egg poacher! That may get me to eat eggs more often!

  5. So that bread mixer would do a better job than a standard KitchenAid (or your hands)? That’s such an interesting tool for the bread maker!

  6. Taste of Beirut: smiles
    Duo Dishes: oh trust me I use it so handy
