Things I Found on Amazon this Week – #5

Every kitchen needs some cool gadgets to make things run smoother, work better or just plain make life easier. This week I want to share a few things that I {ACTUALLY} bought on Amazon and just love! Whether you are looking for some gift ideas for the home cook in your life or just want to treat yourself to something fun for your kitchen set-up, I hope you will come back each week to see what else I found.

Taste of Home All-American Cookbook – this cookbook is chockful of so many (over 300) great family recipes for all sorts of occasions. What I really love is all of the fun anecdotes – yes I’m the nerd that reads cookbooks for fun.

Weiman Ceramic and Glass Cooktop Cleaner – if you have a glass cooktop stove, then you need this cleaner for sure. It works so great for those tough stains. Really cuts down the pressure you have to apply to get the real crusty stuff off.

2 Pieces Linen Cooking Kitchen Apron – I don’t always wear an apron, but when I do, I like to wear a linen one. They are great for absorbing stains and not just letting it seep through. These ones are nice lightweight aprons.

Hamburger Press Patty Maker – this is such an important tool for when you make baked burger patties. When I am using a meat other than ground beef, I usually bake them. And a press makes it easy to ensure that they are all the same size and will cook through evenly.

Citrus Zester and Cheese Grater – I use my microplane for so many things when I’m cooking. Most notably for zesting lemons and limes to get the most flavor. But I also use it for carrots, ginger, lemongrass, celery – anything that I want to really infuse the flavor throughout the recipes.

Do you have any must-have kitchen tools or gadgets that you want to share? Do you have any suggestion so things that you want me to check out?
