Cooking Gadgets - Pasta CookerPasta Cooker

Timing is everything when it comes to making pasta dishes, and a experienced cook knows that she had to have enough time to prep, wait for water to boil and get sauce prepared. But what if you could cut pasta making time down considerably, leave your stovetop clean, even let the kiddos handle making a simple meal? The Lekue Pasta Cooker is specially designed containers that are meant to be used in the microwave, cooking and steaming food that can be served up in minutes. The Pasta Cooker has a special lid that prevents bubbling over, something most microwave pasta cookers don’t account for, and a built in strainer.

Cooking Gadgets - Herb chopperHerb Cutter

Being able to cut, mince and chop herbs quickly is something that a lot of home chefs struggle with because it's time consuming to do correctly. The Zyliss FastCut Herb Tool is designed to get the job done with just a few swift strokes, no matter what amount of herbs you you are trying to cut. The blades are sharp, so use caution, but they need to be to slice through a stack of fresh herbs.

Cooking Gadgets - Corn cutterCorn Stripper

Fresh corn is one of the best harvest veggies to add to the menu, and there are so many ways to prepare it. One of the most tedious chores though is shucking ear after ear of corn to use in any of your dishes. Its difficult, its messy, and it takes up a lot of time. This RSVP Shuck Deluxe Corn Stripper kitchen tool is designed to keep the mess contained, and is easy enough for older kids to safely use.  This cooking gadget will save you both time and mess. This is one tool I wish I had learned about a lot sooner.

Cooking Gadgets - fat seperator


Fat Separator

Making your own gravy or sauce really takes your cooking up a notch, but there is a reason why so many home chefs buy the stuff canned– it takes a lot of patience to make and is tricky to get just right. One of the biggest problems with making stock involves separating the fat released during the cooking process from the stock itself. The OXO Good Grips 4-Cup Fat Separator is designed so that once the fat rises to the top of the tool, the gravy can be poured out without worrying about the two mixing again. The fitted strainer at the top of the cup is an added bonus that is useful, and missing from most other separators. It allows you to fill this kitchen gadget with the top on, removing any large pieces of debris.

Cooking Gadgets - dicer

Dicer and Chopper

I love dicing up veggies and adding them to as many dishes as possible, but the time it takes to slice and dice is almost as long as some dishes take to cook and serve. With the Progressive International Dice and Pop Chopper, you can have veggies diced with a single move. Your veggies  pop out into the measured holder for convienience.

Cooking Gadgets - Mandoline


Mandoline slicers have been around for while, but there are so many kitchens out there without one…or at least a decent one. Because of the way in which you use a mandoline to quickly slice all types of vegetables, you need one that is stable, easy to handle, and has a good blade that will not bend or dull. The Gramercy Stainless Mandoline Slicer offers all of these things and more. It has several interchangeable blades so that you have different ways to slice up your veggies and even has an easy to use grip system so that you can slice right over a bowl for quick plating. This kit even comes with saftey gloves to keep your fingers from being cut.
