Roll & Store Pin

Roll & Store

Kitchen gadgets can really take over your space if you’re not careful. This Roll & Store Pin at Wrapables is a great solution to hold all of those little extras that are lying around the kitchen.

It comes with cookie cutters that you can store in the pin, but it can also be used for other things. You can put ice cubes in the pin, if you needed to keep something chilled or to prevent dough from sticking to the pin. My only concern about this gadget is that it may be a bit noisy. Regardless, it’s a neat concept!

Toaster Teapot

Toaster Teapot

It’s tea time! What is a perfect pair? Tea and toast of course. Now you can have your cake and eat it too, or would that be have your tea and eat your toast too?

With this fun teapot from The Teapottery, you can brew a pot of tea and simultaneously make a piece of toast.

Be sure to have a jar of lemon curd around to top it off!

Da Gennaro Pizza Oven – Cook pizza on your countertop

Da Gennaro Pizza Oven
Pizza is one of my favorite foods…right after avocados.

Over the past few years I’ve really started liking homemade pizza more and more…though I have to say, it doesn’t hurt to have a wife who’s an amazing cook. But regardless, I really have enjoyed making my own pizza lately.

The Da Gennaro Pizza Oven lets you whip up pizzas like you were Papa John himself…right in the comfort of your home. Supposedly it will cook just about anything else that would work in a “wood burning stove”…which I assume to be pretty much anything.

OXO Corn Slitter – Keep that corn out of your teeth

OXO Corn Slitter
Corn is probably one of my favorite vegetables. Unfortunately I’m really not a huge fan of corn on the cob. No matter what you just end up getting corn stuck in your teeth and getting corn juice squirted in your face the whole time you’re trying to eat it.

But the nice thing about corn on the cob is that it’s usually significantly tastier than the stuff you get in a can. So, to get the best of both worlds, check out the OXO Corn Slitter!

Just use the gadget to strip away the corn kernals before you cook them and then you’ll have the tastiness of fresh corn without having to pick it out of your teeth for hours afterwards!

Fishbone Ice Tray

Fishy Ice

Go on and admit it. Fun-shaped ice brings out the kid in you and you love it. Frozen water in odd shapes (especially in the shape of a fish) is certainly a conversation starter.

Whether you’ve got a kid who wants an underwater themed birthday party or if you want your own underwater themed party, this Fishbone Ice Tray is for you.

It’ll set you back around $9.

Rick Bayless Avocado Scooper

Rick Bayless Avocado Scooper
So I guess now would be a great time to go ahead and admit that I have an addiction. I’m completely, unapologetically addicted to avocados. Seriously.

I generally eat atleast 2 sandwiches a week that include avocados in some form or fashion. I love guacamole. I love just about anything that includes even a hint of avocado. In the words of my friend Ricardo, “avocados are nature’s candy.”

As good as avocados are, they can be a bit tricky to get out of their peel. And getting a full half of an avocado out without butchering it is also a bit of a feat.

Enter the Rick Bayless Avocado Scooper. It has the perfect curvature and sizing to scoop any avocado out and give yourself the perfect half.

At $14.95 it’s actually one of the more affordable random kitchen gadgets out there.
