Cool Kitchen Gadgets

Gadget Gifts for the Kitchen

Cool and crazy kitchen stuff makes for some fun gift giving especially when there is someone on our list who loves to spend time in the kitchen. Gadgets and gizmos that will assist them in preparing food, that may not be something they would get for themselves and yet they are actually very handy to have. Personally, I don’t think one can have enough utensils in a kitchen but that may just be me. Sometimes it is just fun to give a gag gift that either works or makes someone smile when they see it.

Want to see some ideas for your gift giving needs? You might even find something you want to gift to yourself.

Featured Kitchen Gadget: Red Soap Dispensing Sink Brush

Single Cup Coffee Brewer: A Hot Gift Idea

Single cup coffee brewers that take the little pods called k-cups are a really hot gift idea. They are perfect for the single man or woman on your gift list and are also a great idea for a couple. The wonderful thing about these brewers is that no coffee is wasted. They brew one cup at a time. If she loves a mild roast coffee and he prefers a dark roast…they can both have what they want without their coffee going stale.

The do more than brew a cup of coffee, too. There are k-cups for tea and k-cups for hot chocolate.

Useful Kitchen Magnet

Metric Conversion Chart Fridge Magnet

Have you ever found yourself wanting to cut a recipe in half because it serves too many people? As you start to calculate the ingredients you get confused on what would constitute half of 3/4 cups. Now, where did I put that conversion chart? Well with this little magnet hanging on your refrigerator the math becomes pretty easy. Saving you time (no longer searching) and making sure you get the ingredients just right.

A Kitchen Gadget Makes Chopping Easier

Fruit and Vegetable Chopper

Keeps all your choppers in one place instead of scattered in different places.

I just love this gadget for the kitchen! Instead of having so many different pieces that chop fruits, vegetables and nuts; this set has the tools to do it all that can store in one place. The container even keeps the measurements for you as you chop. No more having to guess when you have chopped 1 cup of onions, just look at the side of the container. Now, how cool is that? You can dice, slice and chop to your little heart’s content. There is a little tool that will help clean any little extra pieces that may have remained on the blade. Best of all, you can wash it all in the dishwasher!

Steamer Cooker – a cool thing to use in the kitchen

Hamilton Beach Digital Steamer

Stop cooking all the nutrients away! Steam those veggies to perfection. Works with fish, too.

Oh, I so want one of these steamers! I love the ability to be able to cook two different levels of foods in the same container using the divider. When the occasion arises where I need to steam cook a larger food, I can take out the divider. Now, here is the coolest part of all, it automatically switches to the warm setting when the food has reached the end of the cooking cycle. I can steam fish, corn on the cob or even a whole head of cauliflower or broccoli.

What is a gadget?

Quick-Read Food Thermometer

CDN ProAccurate Quick-Read Thermometer

Every kitchen should have one to help make sure that the inner temperature of the meat is accurate.

How often when you are cooking meats does the recipe tell you that the inner temperature of the meat should be a certain temperature? The serious cook almost always has a thermometer to use. It may be one of the ones that has to sit a while before it reads. This quick read digital gadget works wonderfully. It is so important that our meats are cooked properly, so, in my humble opinion every kitchen should have one of these items available when they need to know the inner temp of whatever they are cooking. Works when cooking candy, too.

This thermometer can even be re-calibrated, so even after years of use you won’t be off.
