Christopher Kimball of America’s Test Kitchen and Cook’s Illustrated is visiting Rach and sharing five amazing kitchen gadgets that will save your life in the kitchen.
Christopher Kimball's Thin-Crust Pizza
With a pizza oven, you get a perfect crust and a shorter cooking time because the oven is 900 degrees. Our home ovens don’t get that hot, so Christopher recommends a baking steel instead of a baking stone.
Tip: To pre-heat the steel quickly, put it under the broiler.
Bonus Tip: Cook the pizza about two thirds of the way to the top of your oven in order to get an evenly cooked crust.
Rosle Egg Topper
Must-Have Gadget: Egg Topper
If you want to serve soft-boiled eggs without any trace of shells, use this handy tool to easily remove the top of the cooked egg.
Grandpa Witmer’s Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Mixer
Must-Have Gadget: Peanut Butter Stirrer
When you buy all natural peanut butter, or other nutbutters, it can be really annoying and messy to try to stir the separated oil back into the butter. This tool screws right onto the lid of your peanut butter, and stirs with no mess. Brilliant!
KitchenArt Adjust-a-Cup Measuring Cup
Must-Have Gadget: Adjust-a-Cup Measuring Cup
If you’ve ever tried to measure peanut butter, honey, or another sticky ingredient, you know that it can be near-impossible to get all of it out of your measuring cup. But this cup is adjustable, and easily pushes the ingredient into your bowl after measuring.
Must-Have Gadget: CM Scrubber
This chain-link scrubber will clean your cast iron pans without removing the finish. Perfect!
