A Whisk That Mashes And Mixes

Progressive International Whisk It

Every day kitchen gadgets get pressed into service for tasks that they have no business performing. However, as seemingly a good idea that it may be to stretch the utility of any particular kitchen tool, more often than not the results are underwhelming—and then the tool that was meant to be used gets up being used anyways…

Saving time (and frustration) in the kitchen, the Progressive International Whisk It is a multitasker that is meant to be. Designed to be used for mixing, mashing and whisking, the unique handheld kitchen gadget makes it easy to get the job done right—the first time.

No More Counting Toes In The Kitchen: Timer Keeps Track Of Four Things At Once

Taylor Tools Chef's Trust 4 Event Quad Timer

Most stovetops have four burners, yet for some reason the average kitchen timer can only count one thing at a time. That’s no way to count! It’s like not being able to use your fingers and toes when the need arises. Luckily, no longer is it required to go barefoot in the kitchen, because this timer keeps track of everything for you.

The Taylor Tools Chef’s Trust 4 Event Quad Timer features a simple-to-use uncluttered interface that tracks four separate events at once. Corner LEDs correspond to particular timers, and light up when the countdown is complete. Additional features include a memory recall, the ability to count up, and a foldout stand so you can set it down—just in case you still want to free up those fingers and toes.

Grate and slice with a mandoline

Kitchen gadgets are easy to accumulate: they are fun, encourage you to cook and make excellent gifts. One measure as to the usefulness of any kitchen gadget is how many degrees separate it from being a unitasker. Any device meant to do one thing is just going to end up cluttering up the junk drawer. If a gizmo can do two things, great. Three things, even better. But four? Hey. I’m on board.

Okay, this Zyliss 4-In-1 Multi Slicer/Grater might be pushing it, as almost any grater will at least offer the choice between fine and course, but not as many can handle slicing too. If you got a mandoline hanging out in your kitchen, there’s a good chance it doesn’t do any grating (although many do). Likewise for your grater, the slicer portion can be woefully inadequate. With the added bonus of a finger guard, this grater-meets-mandoline makes for a fine addition into the collection of kitchen gadgets designed to do more than one thing.
