Recently, as I pulled out my chef’s knife to portion the pizza I was serving to my friends for dinner, they became simultaneously shocked and flabbergasted! “You don’t have a pizza cutter?” The concept was so outrageous – to them, it was as if I had never seen the ocean or learned to ride a bicycle. They were both so utterly confused by the lack of that essential kitchen gadget.
Never fear. I am now the proud owner of several pizza cutters (thanks, Ladies and Gents – you know who you are). One stands out, and now does the work that was once (gasp!) left to my trusty chef’s knife. Life will never be the same.
Here are some other great kitchen gadgets I can’t live without.
A Butter Keeper – Right now, I’m using a plain ol’ Weck jar with a lid I bought at World Market, but I always seem to go back to this french country gem.
Mandolin – Mine is not fancy. I bought it for $10 and it works like a champ.
A Strawberry Huller – Who knew? The things you don’t even know exist, but absolutely need. I just got this and LOVE it.
