Cuisipro Robot Ice Pop Molds

Cuisipro Robot Ice Pop Molds

Still on a robot kick from playing with a stackable set of Robo Measuring Cups, I couldn’t resist pointing out Cuisipro Robot Ice Pop Molds, which make a set of six robot-shaped popsicles. I am a fan of the Cuisipro popsicle molds in general, and these are no exception. Made of sturdy plastic, the popsicles snap into a tray that holds them perfectly upright as ... Read More »

iRepel Home Men's Chef Shirts

Chefs’ coats can seem like something that only professional cooks wear and are something that most home cooks wouldn’t even think about buying to wear in their own kitchen.

Rev-A-Shelf Mixer Lift

Rev A Shelf Mixer Lift

Stand mixers are a fairly bulky, as kitchen gadgets go, and they take up a lot of countertop real estate. I don’t mind giving up a little counter space because my mixer is one appliance that I use just about every day. But when you’re not using yours every day, or have limited counter space, you might not want to make space for the stand ... Read More »

What is your favorite kitchen unitasker?

Kitchen Unitaskers!

Unitaskers are kitchen gadgets that have just one use, rather than being versatile enough to be applied to a variety of situations. The term was coined by Alton Brown on the show Good Eats, where Brown was always looking for things that could serve double duty in the kitchen. This is definitely a practical approach and you don’t need a separate gadget for every culinary ... Read More »
