I’m a sucker for kitchen gadgets. Not all the ones I’ve purchased make the final cut, but I’ve rounded up some of my favorites that never fail me! They save time and are also fun to use. Plus, they make great gifts!
Amco® Melon Seeder & Slicer
This dual duty tool makes seed removal and slicing easy! The stainless-steel end slices halved or quartered melons, and the seeder/spoon removes seeds quickly. Great for cantaloupe, honeydew and other thick-rind melons. Dishwasher safe.
Perfectly cut twelve slices of watermelon with one press of the easy grip handles! Simply cut away the top and bottom portion of the watermelon, stand on its end, and press the slicer down. Voila! Dishwasher safe.
Salad Chopper Bowl Strainer
It’s a triple threat. Strain, evenly chop fruits and vegetables, and store them in seconds. Place all ingredients in the bowl, turn upside down, and slice through the grooves. Perfect for making salads and more. Dishwasher safe.
Sharper Image® 4-in-1 Vegetable and Fruit Chopper
My all-time favorite tool. Slice, dice or chop with a close of the lid. You can even store your vegetables or fruits in the container. Three interchangeable blades provide a variety of sizes and chop options. Dishwasher safe.
Joseph & Joseph® Rotary Peeler
Small but mighty! This handheld gadget is a 3-in-1 peeler. The standard blade peels like a traditional peeler for potatoes and carrots. Turn to the soft-skin blade for tomatoes or kiwi. The julienne blade works on almost any vegetable for matchstick strips. Dishwasher safe.
Bar10der Ten-In-One Bartending Tool
My BFF got this as a gift for me and I love it! It will muddle, cut, stir, strain, zest and much more. You can measure with it and open bottles (cap or corkscrew). Stainless steel with a rubber handle. Handwashing is recommended.
