When it comes to tricky tasks, kitchen gadgets can truly be lifesavers -- but the fact is, some get used once or twice and then end up just hogging all of your precious counter and drawer space collecting dust.
So how can you tell if a new, fancy kitchen tool is worth your investment? Christopher Kimball is our most trusted recipe and kitchen gadget tester and boy did he find some good ones this time around! Check them out in the video above!
This product is perfect for all those times you wished you had a freshly baked cookie without having to bake off an entire batch (erm… like now). Christopher says it allows you to portion out the dough and freeze it so anytime you want to bake one cookie or a few of them, you can easily take them out and bake ‘em off! Ta daaaaa!
Tovolo Magnetic Tri-Peeler
This set of three magnetic peelers all stick together, so you can’t lose them! Christopher says each peeler has a different use -- the one with the serrated blade is probably the coolest because it works on stone fruits and even tomatoes! Now you can easily peel a tomato without boiling it.
