Here are some of my favorite gadgets from the kitchen. I’m always on the lookout for a neat tool to use and have fun with, and anything to make things easier in the kitchen, I’m game! Ever since I can remember I could never walk by a kitchen store ( aka.. Bed Bath Beyond, Williams and Sonoma, and Sur La Table) without going inside to find out what’s new and cool. It seems I always leave with something in tow.
Citrus Squeezer and Juicer
The citrus squeezer is outstanding in how much juice is extracted from the fruit, literally gets every drop or close to it. I use it with lemons and limes and its one of the best gadgets I have come across and it makes getting that fresh juice a piece of cake.
I have used variations of this tool but this one really performs close to amazing in my book! You are able to get the leafy stem in its entirety and left with more strawberry to enjoy.
I recently came across these gems and used them in making sugar cookies. They worked really well. If you want to give you cut out cookies just a little something extra without any of the decorating fuzz, these are for you. You can use a sugar cookie or chocolate sugar cookie dough. Allow the dough to be warmed just a bit before stamping out your cookies. A little trick I discovered is after stamping out the designs, follow-up with a circle cutter to actual cut the cookie from the dough. Or you could cut the dough with the circle cutter, then stamp it.
Cookie Scoops-Variety of Sizes
These are some of the most used tools in my kitchen and come in a variety of sizes for various uses to include, muffins, cupcakes, cookies, and mini pies. I don’t know what I would do without them and I even have several of each size to help keep me efficient when I’m working.
Whisks of Course!
One of the most useful tools for the baker is the whisk. I started out with two great whisks that were standard size then discovered over time I needed a variety of sizes for different tasks where the standard size would just sometimes be to large for the task at hand. Also, having a few extra on hand is nice in not having to wash one you just previously used.
Baking Must Have’s
These are some of my most used tools on my baking table! The different shapes and sizes of cutters are great for making cut out cookies and mini pie crusts for mini or individual tarts. The bench and bowl scraper is something no kitchen should be without, in my humble opinion… It is great for scaling dough and works equally wonderful in cleaning up a floured table.
I have used many different sizes and types of rolling pins but I really love this medium-sized silicone covered one the best. It is a great size for rolling out bread, pie, and cookie dough. The medium size allows me to work easily and is really user-friendly for home projects. The silicone cover makes clean up a breeze.
Look no further for a great cherry pitter, this one is for you. I love this tool so much and for the longest time I put off ever buying cherries because of the pits and the difficulty of removing them. Once I discovered this tool cherries are now something I’m excited to buy and eat! This tool is great and removes the pits fast and easy making those cherry desserts something to get excited about!
