Norpro Silicone Ice Pop Makers Vs. Zipzicles Zip Bags

Norpro 431 4-Piece Silicone Ice Pop Maker Set

Here comes the heat, what’s going to beat it? Norpro Silicone Ice Pop Makers or Zipzicles, The ONLY Zip-Top Ice-Pop Mold?

Fight!
(Delicious fight)

Above, the Norpro 431 4-Piece Silicone Ice Pop Maker Set costs about 10 bucks and comes in a set of four. Clearly reusable, the silicone molds come with little caps to seal in juice, yogurt or whatever (“juices, purees, yogurt, soda, ice cream, pudding, applesauce, gelatin, fruit, berries, candies, chocolate, carmel, whipped cream and sprinkles”) as it freezes. Fill, seal, freeze and enjoy as they say.

Waffle Tongs?

Norpro Waffle Tongs

Now I appreciate me some waffle tongs as much as the next guy, but I’m not sure they justify a ten dollar price tag. Now granted, I’m sure these Norpro Waffle Tongs work better than say, a sledgehammer, would for lifting waffles out of the waffle iron, but chances are there is another gadget or tool hanging about the kitchen that will do the job just as well.

But then again, might as well one pick up just in case — perhaps if its waffle-picking up duties are over exaggerated, it could be used as a hair clip instead!

C is for Cookie, S is for Shovel

Norpro Jumbo Cookie Shovel

One cookie is not good enough for me, but a whole shovel-load sounds perfect. The Norpro Jumbo Cookie Shovel can help make that happen. The oversized spatula features a payload that measures 6.5-inches from end to end, and a long 13.75-inch handle to help get all that extra leverage you’ll need for scooping all those cookies off of the baking sheet. Now they just need to make jumbo-sized milk cartons.

Slice whatever you want with this multi-purpose slicer

Norpro Multi-Purpose Slicer

Now this is refreshing; a kitchen gadget that isn’t overly specialized. While I may have no need in my kitchen for a dedicated avocado slicer, I certainly could find a use for this Norpro Multi-Purpose Slicer. After all, that’s what it’s designed to do: slice multiple things.

This gadget slices everything from mushrooms to radishes, so you can finally get rid of all those slicers that are each designed to slice a different item. Or better yet, re-gift them for those hard-to-buy-for friends you have. Most likely any novelty slicers you may have are still in the package anyways.
