My Favorite Kitchen Gadget Party

I'm joining Lynn's Favorite Kitchen Gadget party! Click on her name for lots more fun. Thanks, Lynn, for hosting!

I love kitchen gadgets and enjoy browsing in kitchen stores for the latest gadgets!

These aren't really my favorite kitchen gadgets, but since it is Valentine's Day I wanted to share them because they are so pretty! I found them at Target last year.

I can't really decide what is my very favorite gadget, so will show several I really love and wouldn't want to be without. I enjoy using them and they make cooking a bit easier.
I have a large whisk that I used for large bowls, but the small whisks above are used more often. The mini whisk on the left is handy to mix things up in a measuring cup or small bowls. The green plastic coated whisk in the middle is great for scrambling eggs in a silicone coated pan, since it doesn't scratch the bottom of pans. The middle sized whisk on the right works well for lots of sizes of containers. Do you have any mini sized whisks?


Maybe these two below could be my favorite gadgets. I love using them!
I love lemon recipes and these two get used a lot with them. The lemon juicer works well and I don't have to exert a lot of energy to get the juice out of lemons. The microplane zester is wonderful, I like to use lemon zest in a lot of recipes.

I like this plastic brush for basting things. It cleans well in the dishwasher. I don't like the brush types anymore because they never seem to be clean!

I like to use small spatulas. I use them for serving as well as cooking.
I bought the green plastic spatula at a kitchen shop in Savannah last year. They said it was the best selling item in their store, and of course I had to try it! It is very flexible and works nicely.

Now here are two gadgets I use almost daily - toast tongs! These little jewels keep me from burning my fingers when I'm getting my toast out of the toaster oven.

Since I'm a tea lover and take tea daily, I must add these to my favorite gadgets:
I love loose black teas and either use the little strainer on the cup, or I use a tea ball, both work great! Do you like loose teas?

We went to Disney World last week and I bought these cute little measuring cups there.

They go great with these measuring spoons!

How cute is that!


These probably aren't my favorites either, I bought them because they are yellow! LOL
I still use my electric can opener, and another scraper that is very sharp!

Two more gadgets that aren't really my favorite, mainly because they belong to my husband! He is the chief chopper in this house! These cutters are wonderful!


For Christmas I gave him a bigger cutter with several attachments.

He uses both, but seems to favor the small one, it's his second one as the first one broke.
Maybe this big one won't break! Hope not!



Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi Katherine! Your Disney cups and spoons are sure to put a smile on your face in the kitchen! Looks like you were smart enough to save the cardboard cover to store your microplane, that is a very good idea-I did not:@)
Thanks so much for joining the Gadget Party-Happy Valentine's Day!

I do have a mini whisk and I use it all the time! It is perfect for creaming things together like a little bit of dressing.
I am crazy over the Mickey measuring spoons. How cute are those!!

Everyone is so happy with the microplanes--I think I need one. I do have a mini whisk and a flat one which I love. Your Disney cups and spoons are adorable! I bought some bowls when I was there yet and am trying to plan a table. Enjoy! Linda

The heart shaped measuring cups are quite special. I didn't even know there was such a thing! Sandi

Why not save money and eat healthier at the same time? It’s something everyone wants to do. As luck would have it it is not as hard as many people seem to believe. You can eat good for you every day while saving money in a dozen different ways.Saving money and staying healthy is very simple if you’re careful about what you eat and buy. Unluckily most people overlook the most obvious choices when it comes to saving money; beans, grains, and other staple items really are the best options. You can still eat foods you enjoy, though. Just make good decisions at the grocery store! Instead of eating out at lunch time, cook in bulk and bring the leftovers to work; you just saved a ton of money by incorporating that. learn more:

You have several gadgets I do not. I guess I need to get a microplane. Love the Disney kitchen tools. They do put a smile on my face.
