I had a day off during the week and spent some of it at the local shopping centre (as you do!). I bought a lovely new flat screen TV, but not before I was walking past the kitchenware shop and I saw these little beauties just begging to be bought! I know that people have probably seen them before, but this was the first time I had seen them. They are measuring cups, shaped as Russian nesting dolls! So cute.
I had been thinking about doing a post about gadgets etc for a while now, so buying these have prompted me to actually write it.
As cool as these are, they probably won't be my absolute favourite kitchen gadget. That title goes to the onion chopper thing that I bought from Tupperware a couple of years ago. Okay, so the technical name appears to be Turbochef mini, but whatever name Tupperware give it, in our house it is known as the onion chopper.
Mine looks a little bit different because the bowl part is clear with a red base, but the concepts are the same.
The main reason why I like this so much is that it is easy to use, very little onion smell on the hands, no tears, and that my son is the one who does the chopping generally because he loves using it. It chops onion, herbs, and in theory nuts and cheeses but I haven't used it for that.
So, there is my favourite kitchen gadget, and something new I bought this week.
What's your favourite gadget that you couldn't live without?
