Kitchen Gadgetry

Recently, Jon and I found ourselves in a Williams-Sonoma. Of course, we walked in thinking we would just be buying some tea, and we walked out with a couple of new gadgets that we didn't really NEED:

  • Kuhn Rikon Safety Lid Lifter Deluxe - Basically, a can opener. The device actually cuts through the outside of the can -- instead of the top -- so it really does lift the lid and, as a result, you get no sharp edges. Plus, the gadget itself has no protruding blades.
  • OXO Good Grips Pizza Wheel for Non-Stick Pans - Because Jon likes to eat frozen pizzas for dinner, we've accumulated several pizza wheels over the years. BUT, we still couldn't resist adding to our collection when we saw this one. The plastic wheel makes it safe for non-stick surfaces, so we've been using it for more than just pizza.

(Those folks at OXO are SO smart! The angled measuring cups are also pure genius.)
