Three signs of a good kitchen gadget: prefects a skill better then a generic tool, has a unique design feature, and makes life easier. If you are a customer of The Happy Cook, you can attest to our large and ever changing selection of fun kitchen gadgets. Here are some of our favorites that are hard to live without this summer….
Citrus Sprayer From Lekue
Turn your citrus fruit into the freshest juice container EVER! The screw-like design can be easily inserted and secured inside the fruit (usually lemon or lime) and juice is extracted with a quick compression of the spray nozzle. It is perfect to dress your salad, aromatize your kitchen, or flavor your soft drinks and cocktails.
Avocado Slicer From OXO
Split, pit, slice and scoop avocados safely and effectively with this 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer. The plastic blade cuts through the skin without being overly sharp. The pitting tool allows you to remove the pit and the efficient fan shaped blade slices and scoops out the rest of this heart healthy fruit. Avocados fight cancer, protect against heart disease, help to lose weight, and lower inflammation. This tool makes it so easy to add avocado to your summer salad or whip up some fresh guacamole.
Cherry Pitter From Zyliss
Although cherry season is almost over in Charlottesville, this tool is useful anytime you choose to indulge in this taste fruit. The ultra sharp stainless steel pitting rod removes pits with one squeeze. Our favorite features are the adjustable splash guard and collection reservoir for juice and pits. The base of the reservoir is hinged for easy pit disposal. These are the little features that make all the difference in the kitchen!
Corn Zipper From Kuhn Rikon
Cherry season may be almost done, but corn season is just beginning! Unzips more rows of kernels at the same time with our Kuhn Rikon Corn Zipper. The ergonomic zipper design cleans the cob off nicely and safely and is much more fun to use then a knife.
