6 Must-Have Kitchen Gadgets Under $10 on Amazon
I want to get some new kitchen gadgets, but nothing too pricey! Can you help me out?
I love to experiment with fun kitchen tools, especially ones that save time or make my life easier in some way. Amazon (my favorite place to order anything) has a ton of budget-friendly gadgets under $10 a pop. Check out my latest finds...
Prepworks by Progressive Collapsible Mini ColanderProps to the genius who thought to make colanders collapsible -- such a great space saver! This one is technically a mini, but it holds an impressive 3 1/2 cups. It's ideal for rinsing fresh fruit, draining cooked veggies, and more. And I LOVE that it has a removable base that captures drips once you move it to the counter. Plus, it's dishwasher safe! And only around $5...
Zenware Set of 2 BBQ Meat Pulled Pork Shredder ClawsThese plastic claws look like large combs, but keep them away from your hair! They're awesome for shredding chicken, pork, beef... You name it. And the comfy handles are essential. These make the perfect companion to your slow cooker; keep them on the sidelines, and shred your slow-cooked meat into tender pieces. Grab a pair, and test 'em out with recipes like these!
AmazonBasics Digital Kitchen Scale with LCD DisplayI was shocked to find a highly rated digital food scale for less than ten bucks... and yet here it is! A kitchen scale is a dieter's BFF. Use it to accurately measure calorie-dense foods like nuts, avocado, meats, and more. If you usually eyeball your portions, you might be surprised to find that what you think is 6 oz. of chicken could be more like 9.5 oz.! In other words, you could be taking in more calories than you think. It's also smart to measure out packaged snacks, since the true serving size is often given in weight. Bonus: This scale even comes with batteries!
Chef'n StemGem Strawberry HullerThis little tool is so fun to use. It contains a miniature claw -- imagine the claw on the tiniest arcade game ever! But instead of grabbing for a prize, you're grabbing for the core of a strawberry. And once you hollow out your berries, you can stuff 'em with yummy ingredients! Check out all the tasty treats you can make with this thing... Just don't forget to come back and order it.
Joie Fruit and Vegetable Wavy Chopper Knife Stainless Steel BladeThe uber-long name could be summed up in two words: crinkle cutter. Use this mega-affordable tool to make ordinary fruits 'n veggies way more interesting. (Crinkle-cut apple spears? The best!) But the number-one reason you need a crinkle cutter in your life? It gives veggie fries like these an authentic French-fry shape! Love this handy device. And the fact that it comes in fun bright colors doesn't hurt!
