Living close to a farmer's market we have an endless supply of fresh garlic to flavor the many different dishes we make. I also have fingers that are easily infused with the smell of this great seasoning. It seems like I can wash my hands for days and days and I still seem to have that 'once' wonderful aroma on my hands. There's no way to avoid it except for the use of a good gadget. The Chef’n Garlic Zoom XL Rolling Garlic Chopper helps prepare an endless chopped supply. Just put your whole cloves into the chopper and roll it along. This is a great time saver as you can process a lot more garlic with this gadget than you can by hand. You can purchase this on Amazon.
The Avocado Cuber from Williams-Sonoma is a gem.With one quick movement you can easily cube and remove the avocado flesh from it's skin. The first time I used it, I was pleased. If you make lots of guacamole or avocado salad this smart tool can save you a wealth of time.
Now I know to some this may seem to be taking the love of kitchen gadgets a bit far but I guarantee you that if you cook with onions daily this is a MUST HAVE tool. Strong onions seems to make the most stern individual cry. You can try and cut them under water, look away - how you do this using a knife is beyond me - or light a match, but nothing is going to work as well as getting rid of the aromatic vapors all together. In comes the Onion Goggles to save the day....and your eyes. You can find them on Amazon.
I adore these sweet little Owl Nesting Measuring Cups from West Elm. Not only do I no longer have to dig around the 'gadget' drawer for a measuring cup but these adorable little works of art can sit on my kitchen counter. They come in a wide range of colors to match any style or color scheme.
