Now on to my favorite kitchen gadgets! ♥
top to bottom left to right
long handled wood spoon – perfect for deep pasta pots, lemonade jugs and more
rubber jar opener – do you remember when I made one? You can find that and more on my new uses for old things page sometimes lids on jars are just to well sealed, great for our food and health safety but hard work for our hands. This simple rubber circle makes all the difference in gripping the jar lid tightly
tea infuser-loose leaf tea is a wonderful treat
mini grater -perfect for little jobs and zesting
bottle and wine opener-no further explanation needed, giggle
hard boil egg timer– I love this! Egg-Perfect Heat Sensitive Color Changing Egg Timer- You drop it in the pot with the eggs and it changes color to help you determine soft, medium and hard boiled eggs.
mini sifter– great for dusting powdered sugar in small areas , a nice photo prop too I am sure you recognize it from some of my photos
pot handle covers– i love my stainless steel pots and pans nut they do not have covered handles these slid on the handles to protect your hands
rubber spatula-I use this for a multitude of things, from scraping inside jars to frosting cakes
basting brush-I prefer this rubber one to the bristle brush because it can go in the dishwasher and it does not leave bristles behind when you use it
small whisk– perfect for small tasks whisking a bit of water and cornstarch for example
ice cream scoop– not just for ice cream but great for cookies,muffins, cupcakes etc.
pizza cutter-not just for pizza but great for cutting brownies, pan cookies like my zucchini cookies
kitchen shears-cut through everything, bones, crab legs, crack shells, nuts too
wood cutting board-perfect for veggies and a photo prop too ( see my other photo prop ideas HERE)
