I love collecting new kitchen tools and equipment. I recently acquired a few that I am really loving and wanted to share.
Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin Pure Can Opener
Until recently I had no idea that there was such thing as a smooth edge/ safety can opener. All my life I’ve used the regular hand crank ones or the electric ones. When we recently moved, I found all sorts of unopened forgotten tools that I had previously bought or been gifted. I decided to break out this new can opener, thinking it was just a regular hand crank one.
When I opened my first can and it easily went across the entire rim, I thought “Oh no, this is broken. It didn’t cut through.” But then I inspected my can and to my surprise, it had!
This is the can, already cut:
Look at that smooth edge!
Instead of cutting into the top of the metal and created a jagged ring around the surface like the usual can openers, it instead cuts on the side. You exert very little pressure to twist and cut and the end result is a smooth edge cut. I’m always so worried about cutting myself on those jagged edges, but this one is super smooth. I am so in love with this can opener. It is a bit pricey though. I actually found a few well reviewed similar ones for about half the price. I don’t know if they are as good, but if you are interested in trying out a smooth edge opener and not willing to pay as much you can try this Kuhn Rikon one that got really good reviews.
Bialetti Pasta Pot
I was recently given this pot for review. I love the vibrant red color which matches some of the other red pots in my house, and I especially love the lid which drains out pasta water. The pot feel sturdy but isn’t too heavy so that you can lift and drain. When I first got it, it took me a while to figure out how to secure the lid on, but once I figured it out, it works great and has been a happy new addition to my kitchen. (Please note, the pot was provided to me for review. I was not further compensated.)
I use it for pasta, boiling potatoes, and just about anything where I need to drain out the water.
I recently bought these chalk labels so that I can organize my kitchen much like this Amazon photo:
I have done a few of them so far, but I’m not quite ready to debut mine yet. These work really great. I bought them with this liquid chalk marker. You can easily wipe off the chalk with water and they make my containers look so fancy! I plan on using them as labels in my garden too.
So that’s it for now. Is there anything totally awesome that you use in your kitchen you want to share? Have a great weekend everyone!
