Kitchen Gadgets

KITCHEN GADGET #1: Meat thermometer with long, oven-safe probe. I use it for yogurt making, any meat cooking in the oven, checking for doneness on the stove top, and quick checking of any liquid on the counter top. probe

 

 

 

 

KITCHEN GADGET # 2: A mandolin is a Japanese slicing tool that is used to efficiently and evenly slice produce. Benriner is the brand that I use, and it is simply amazing. Mine came with 3 blades that cut strips of veg, like seen in the photo, plus a catch box that sits underneath the mandoline and a hand guard.

KITCHEN GADGET #3: Microplane: When I go to another kitchen to cook, this is one of my top five take-alongs almost every time. This fine grade grater works for zesting of citrus, grating of cheese and nutmeg. They are available now at most kitchen specialty stores. micro
KITCHEN GADGET #4: Sous Vide Machine: What is sous vide? It’s a cooking method that requires you be able to keep a temperature constant with in 1-2˚F. The most reliable method for doing so is a circulating heated water bath. This can be created by many sous vide technologies out there, but the one in my kitchen is the kickstarted Sansaire.
Here’s what you do with it: sansaire
Seal the ingredients in a plastic bag or canning jar and place them in a water bath. When the food reaches your target temperature or time, you take it out, give it a quick sear or other finish, and serve it. That’s it.
