Don't you just love a good gadget? I love one that is functional - usually with several functions as a matter of fact. I don't really like a one-trick pony type of gadgets. I like multi-taskers. Sometimes you have to settle for a one-trick pony and that's OK.
Sorry I couldn't resist - the girls always loved Inspector gadget when they were young. I especially love the intro!
My Mom's friend is moving and she's been clearing out her kitchen. She knows that I'm a big kitchen person so she gave me a bunch of things that she thought I might put to good use (Thanks Terri). She's given me some pretty nice things in the past too. She's given me some cake-decorating tools, some copper molds, cookie cutters, spritz cookie gun, etc.
Here's what I got this time around:
Pampered Chef) and love it. Sometimes though when lifting things it's nice to have that second one to help out. I already have a sharpening steel but this one is real heavy-duty. I have an electric one that is good for when my knives need serious sharpening but in between the steel is a necessary tool. I'm just worried that it is so heavy duty that it might not stay on my magnetic knife bar.
See the little lamb cake mold in the background. It's cute but I'm not sure how I will feel about cutting into the cake? The Rosette set looks like it will be fun to play with.
A few things I can't figure out what they do?? For example, this is for seafood but I'm not quite sure how to use it. It says "seafood sheller" on the handle. I guess next time we have lobster - we'll figure it out.
I've figured out part of what this is used for.
The zig-zag edge is a cake comb (puts nice lines into icing). The other uses, I don't know. It is marked with the word "Tupperware" so I'm thinking a quick webby-web search might give me some answers.
pear tart for Easter, I had such trouble opening the jar of pears. I tried every which way and that sucker would not open. The Sous Chef was at work so I was getting desperate, I called a neighbor and she said she wasn't any good at opening jars. I was ready to ask another neighbor and I gave it one more try and it finally opened. Now I don't have to worry any more!
So any ideas how the seafood gadget works or the Tupperware one??
