The cooking industry has a surprisingly huge variety of kitchen gadgets some of which are very helpful, and some exist to solve problems that no one really has (banana cutter, anyone?). But there are a few good apples in the bunch, some of which I’d like to share with you below. Take a look at the list I’ve come up with. Some of these can make great additions to anyone’s kitchen!
Tired of wasting precious baking mix to complicated balloon whisks? This neat, little gadget helps salvage the last few drops of your mix, making licking those last few scoops of sugary goods much simpler. Not sure if this is a good thing to one’s diet, though!
This tool offers a simple, 3-step process to cutting your avocado. After splitting the avocado in half with the knife part of the tool, use the middle section of the cutter to pull off the large seed, Lastly, use the lined section to evenly cut and pull out the avocado contents from it’s skin. It’s that simple!
This neat tool commonly comes in two different shapes: an appropriately molded silicone fish, or its more boring, eggplant shaped silicone form. It’s very simple to use. Simply suction the egg yolk from the egg white and pour into a different container.
Hulling strawberries and tomatoes has never been easier. This simple tool works by pushing in the button and clawing into the stem portion of the fruit. Let go of the button so that the claw closes in on the stem, then separate the tool from the fruit to pull out it’s stem. Easy-peasy, right?
A favorite and essential little gadget in many kitchens, including my own. This simple tool is just a glorified silicone cylinder with small grooves inside its tube. Simply place a garlic clove or two into the tube and roll the silicone tool a few times on a hard, flat surface. This will separate the garlic shell from its clove. After a few turns just dump the contents out and separate the broken off shell from the garlic pieces.
With just a bit of elbow grease, all you have to do is place the apple onto a hard surface, and push the apple cutter tool down into the apple until 8 evenly cut pieces (minus the core) are formed. Boun-a-petite!
