Five of the Hottest New Kitchen Gadgets

I’m a sucker for the latest gadgets. I see them in all the catalogs I get through the mail, or online stores or on some infomercial when I can’t get back to sleep in the middle of the night, all stimulating an urge in me to just buy these things, much to the chagrin of my loving, but frugal mate.

My theory is that if they’re easy-to-use and will help my time in the kitchen be a lot shorter, they are worth paying for.

Pro Stick Blender

I love this nifty, convenient little item. because it takes up a lot less room, yet performs the same duties as a much larger gadget of the same type.

The 180-watt Pro Stick Blender is actually a smaller, hand-held blender that can whip, chop, blend, puree and do anything a larger blender can do. Since I have a thing for compact kitchen gadgets, this is perfect, since I can easily access it and store it.
It doesn’t hurt that you buy 1 and get a second one at no cost.

One Touch Can Opener

If you have ever wrestled with manual can openers or yelled at those electric can openers that never seem to work quite right, then you will appreciate this little gizmo. I sure do!

The One Touch Can Opener is small, convenient, very simple to use and opens all sizes of cans, without the lids sinking down into the can or having sharp edges to cut your finger,

The Genius Nicer-Dicer

The Genius Nicer-Dicer will save you lots of time and mess when you need vegetables cut up, chopped or diced.

The kitchen in our apartment is relatively small, so finding the counter space to cut up a lot of veggies, while we are trying to prepare other things at the same time, is a challenge. Using this product speeds things up considerably, meaning we can cut our cooking time in half.

It’s made out of plastic and has stainless steel blades that cut through everything very efficiently. It comes with two bowls and lids and it’s a breeze to clean up.

Deni Combo-Cooker/Fryer

So far, I have only used this for slow cooking, but I am pretty pleased with it.

The Deni Combo-Cooker/Fryer can be used not only to slow cook, but to deep fry, boil and bake. It’s an attractive looking product made out of stainless steel, with a plastic lids for covering. It has a built-in timer, plus a detachable wire basket for deep frying and other extras. They also send along a manual that includes recipes.

Since it holds a good 3 quarts, I am able to prepare enough to last for awhile or, as I am want to do, be able to freeze some of it for use on those days I just do not want to have to cook.

I feel like I sincerely got my money’s worth here.

Ronco Showtime Professional Rotisserie and BBQ

Sure, the price may appear to be a little steep, but even my husband agrees that this was an excellent investment.

We have roasted chickens, pork roasts and ribs on this and the results are always fantastic. The meat just falls off the bone and tastes even better than rotisserie-prepared meat we’ve gotten from Boston Market or the deli of our local grocery store.

Why create an oven mess or stand outside sweating behind a grill, when summertime comes, when you can use this product?

I would recommend the Ronco Showtime Professional Rotisserie and BBQ to anybody I know.

Cost: $219.95
