My favourite kitchen gadgets


I’m very loyal to my favourite things. I committed long ago to my brands of laundry detergent and toothpaste and never consider changing. My bias for the tried-and-true follows me, of course, into the kitchen, too. I have favourite pots and pans, and I even have a favourite knife and tongs that I pack when I travel so that I always have them at the ready and ingredient preferences that would puzzle most normal people.

Given these predilections for the familiar, it’s not every day that a new gadget or kitchen do-dad wins me over. However, that’s just what happened the first time I picked up this wooden handled whisk from Browne & Company. Although I can’t put it in the dishwasher, the feel of this tool in my hand is so wonderful that my laziness is secondary to my desire to whisk up a cyclone!

What’s your favourite kitchen gadget?

    Thanks for the props and link. I’m curious how my site will develop too. At Eye I have a tough editor and a clear mandate. I like the freedom of writing for myself but I don’t want it to descend into a diary.

    My favourite tool is a blue, unburnable, unbreakable, unstainable, flexible, one-piece spatula I found at Fortune a year ago before they closed. It was the last one on the rack and there are no manufacturer’s markings on it.

    You’d better keep your door locked now that the world (okay the few thousand people who read this blog) know that you have a one-of-a-kind spatula!

    I’m sure your blog will be fab even without an editor. Freedom is good my young padawan. I bet it will find its own shape and cadence. I totally agree that reading a catalogue of someone’s daily activities is dull. Just try to get a couple of useful tips into each post and you’re there!

    Ooh – cool stuff (literally with that anti-griddle!). I wonder how the Smoking Gun works? I can’t imagine using it at home but for restaurants it could be an interesting tool.

    Thanks Sabrina!
