I may not always be Suzy Homemaker, but I kind of know my way around a kitchen. And I love kitchen gadgets and tools, so I have about a gazillion of them. Half of them are at my mom’s, waiting for us to have a “real” house with a kitchen bigger than a closet. As I was doing the dishes (my least favorite task), I thought about a few of my recent finds that have turned into favorites:
Caphalon Grill Pan with Press— This thing makes anything taste better, plus J doesn’t have to freeze his butt off on the deck with the grill. We make tons of stuff on it, from chicken and steak tips, to quesadillas and grilled cheese. The grill marks come out perfect, and its easy to clean. I’m glad I went with this rather than the cast iron one, because that’s a PITA to clean.
Dawn Power Foam dish soap — one squirt of this stuff washed at least 5 dishes. Its like a miracle foam!
Scotch Brite Clean Rinse Scrubber — Eggs & cheese don’t even stick to this sponge! Its a bit pricey, but well worth it.
Kitchen Aid Santoko— Even though I have a block full of Henckels, this is my go-to knife. Its lightweight, has a nice rubber handle, and cuts almost everything like buttah.
Back to the dishes!
