My Life of Travels and Adventures: Favorite Kitchen Gadgets

Favorite Kitchen Gadgets

17 February 2017

I hate to the wish the week away, but its February, we have about a foot of snow and have been without hot water and a furnace since last Friday.  So, yeah, I am wishing to forget most of this past week and focus on only being cold for a few more days. 

This week, I thought I would share 5 kitchen gadgets that I am loving right now. 

1. KitchenAid Mini Food Processor - I bought this with some extra Christmas money last month and it has been instant love every since.  I have a big ole regular food processor from when we got married 10+ years ago, that I have been using and its been fine.  But to chop just a couple cups it's a lot of clean up.  I saw this small food processor and was instantly sold.  It works perfecting for small amounts and the clean up is fairly simple as it is only 3 pieces total.     

2. Ground Beef Chopping Spatula - I may be really late to the game with this one but how did I never know something like this existed.  I have always used a wooden spatula to break up ground meat while it was cooking.  This spatula works much better and makes nice small little pieces. 
3. Reusable Muffin/Cupcake Cups - I have been using reusable muffin cups for year.  I used to use square ones to make bento style lunches for Reid when he was in daycare years ago.  Now, I use them for a lot of dessert muffins and such.  

4. Ziplock Bag Holder - This has been another, how didn't I know about that, item.  I have been using this ziplock bag holder at least weekly since I bought it last fall.  I try to make a batch of soup/chili weekly and then will portion the leftovers into quart freezer bags before freezing them flat for lunches.  

5. Scoop Strainer - I make the kids frozen veggies for lunches.  Which means that I was using either a slotted spoon or a large colander pretty much daily.  Now I just pour, strain and distribute without adding bulk to the dirty dish pile.  
6. Clear Refrigerator Bins - This one is a bonus and not really a kitchen gadget but its a huge favorite.  I don't know why I held out so long on the refrigerator bin storage but I am very very sad that I did.  It is so much easier to find and gain access to those long forgotten jars or
