My favorite kitchen gadgets and their stories.
Pancake Grill: I got this for Christmas from my sister. I love to make pancakes, french toast, fried eggs, grilled cheese and quesadillas on it. I can make a whole bunch at one time so I don't have to slave in the kitchen too long. It's about $20 on sale. Worth it!
Uncrustable Maker: This is from Pampered Chef. I don't buy the Uncrustables at the store anymore because I can make these cheap at home with wheat bread! $9 before the handling charges.
Deviled Egg Holder: I am now the official deviled egg bringer-over in my family with this baby. It keeps my little eggies nice and safe for any journey. Got it at Wal-mart. You can also find a travel cooler in the camping section of the store to pack these containers in and keep them cool!
Frosting Gun: I use this more for making my famous deviled eggs look real pretty. Great for cupcakes too! I got this one from my daughter's school fundraiser catalog last year. It was inexpensive and it works great!
Egg/Strawberry/Kiwi Slicer: Saves time and cut fingers. I like to use this for making egg salad. Sure beats cutting each egg and then chopping it all over the place.
Egg Separator: I got this from Pampered Chef as well. I like to make myself an egg-white scramble now and then. The fat grams I save from not having those yolks let me add the cheese that I love in it!
This little rolly thing peels garlic in a jiffy! No smelly fingers!
Salad Spinner: I LOVE this thing! I actually bought the Wal-mart version for less than $3 dollars. It works great. Dry lettuce every time.
Tell us some of your favorites and why!
