I'm not sure why but I just can't resist an inexpensive, brightly colored kitchen gadget with the most random use. I love wandering down the kitchen aisle at my favorite store or aimlessly browsing Amazon for random items that I MUST have. I've compiled a list of some of my favorite items and thrown a few of my boy's favorite gadgets in for good measure.
Speaking of good measure, this gadget is a staple in my house. This 1, 2, or 4 cup angled measuring cup is my go-to for wet or dry ingredients. It's so easy to read the measurements and it's extra durable. Find this measuring cup here.
Bamboo cutting boards with a juice groove are an absolute essential in all kitchens. Not all cutting boards are created equal. We love this bamboo board because it had the best feel and balance of all the ones we tried. We also love the fact that we have 3 sizes because having one is never enough when it comes to the holidays. Also, did you know that Wood and bamboo have natural antimicrobial properties that kill bacteria, even those that penetrate the surface?
Pasta night is always a hit in my household but sometimes I need to make things a little healthier and cut some of the carbs. This Veggie Spiralizer is such a time saver. It also juices, grates and shreds!
Here are a few other time-savers that I love:
Apple Slicer (Stay away from plastic, I have broken numerous ones)
I just found these Truck Taco Holders and now taco night is an even bigger hit in our household than it was before. They come in a set of two and each hold 2 tacos. They're great for holding the shells upright while filling them with all the fillings.
I LOVE using garlic but can't stand the smell of garlic on my hands for days afterward. This discovery has been a game-changer. This chopper and peeler set is easy to use and takes the time-consuming task of chopping garlic down to seconds. Check it out HERE.
I mentioned it before but pasta is always a big hit, I know most kids go through a phase where all they will eat is butter noodles. This pasta strainer is so easy to use and easy to clean...and it's dishwasher safe! I have to give credit to my husband on this one because I would still be using the same metal one that I have used for several decades and we couldn't find the same one. This one though is so much better! You can grab it here.
My kiddos also love this Whisk Wiper. They love licking the beaters while we're making cookies and this makes it fun and super easy to those last bits of sugary goodness.
Ok, one last item that you need to add to your must-have's list...this mini make Electric Griddle is perfect for all of your breakfast favorites. It grills from the top and the bottom and is super easy to clean!
Another one of my favorite DASH products is the egg cooker. When I want hard-boiled eggs I get them perfect every time using this egg cooker.
I hope you get as much joy out of these fun, handy, and time-saving gadgets as I do!
