Call yourself paleo? Not unless you use these essential gadgets you’re not…
1. A strawberry hull remover
You haven’t been doing this by hand have you?
2. The egg cuber
Essential for packed lunches and picnics to ensure your eggs don’t roll away.
3. Dedicated fruit and veg choppers…
4. A chop stir
You’ve not been wasting your time chopping and stirring separately have you?
5. The robo stir
Use a spoon you say?
6. The capsicum/ bell pepper preparer
Those seeds in the middle, you aren’t meant to eat them you know… this gadget removes the seeds. But you do still need a knife to chop the pepper up. So that’s erm, worthwhile.
7. Herb scissors
How else are you supposed to cut herbs?
8. The flavour injector
Because a marinade is just too marinade-y
9. The lettuce karate chopper
Clearly a knife or bare hands is too damaging for lettuce. You need to use a dedicated plastic karate chopper instead.
10. A pineapple slicer
Another fruit you’ve been cutting up all wrong. You need a pineapple slicer.
11. Avocado slicer
Don’t even think of using a knife when this is available
12. The banana saver
For all those times a whole banana is just too much
13. The apple peeler/ corer
How else are you going to peel it?
14. The cherry pitter
You mustn’t eat the stones you know
15. A mayonnaise knife
16. The omelette maker
Because using a pan is just too complex
17. Better bagger
To make sure your bags stay open and upright when you’re filling them. Just what every kitchen needs.
18. Finger spoons
Well cavemen didn’t have proper cutlery did they?
19. Microwave bacon tool
Because microwaved bacon just doesn’t compare to oven cooked bacon
20. The garlic peeler
There is no other way
21. Egg slicer
For when you don’t want to eat a whole egg
22. Kiwi scoop
Looks remarkably similar to that other device. What’s is called… oh yes – a spoon.
23. The butter warmer
24. Pickle picker
How else are you going to get pickles out?
25. Asparagus peeler
Asparagus. Peel it.
26. Nutmeg slicer
What do you mean, you haven’t been slicing your nutmegs in a dedicated slicer?
27. Garlic roaster
28. Melon deseeder
You’ve got to get those seeds out properly.
29. Left handed wooden spatula
Essential for the left hander in your household.
30. Olive spoon
Well, if you’re going to eat olives, you’re going to need to get hold of them.
31. Self stirring mug
For your bullet proof coffee fix.
Because it would be unhygenic to use your HANDS to tear off some paper towel.
33. Mango splitter
Surely everyone has one of these?
34. The mushroom brush
You’ve got to get the mud off somehow.
35. Grapefruit segmenter
It’s of vital importance to make sure your grapefruit is in equal sized segments.
36. Egg cracker
You know some of those recipes that ask for an egg? Well that means minus the shell, hence the need for this nifty gadget.
37. Tomato slicing tongs
Like a bit of tomato in your salad, but don’t want tomato hands?
38. Tomato slicer
Probably a good idea to have a back up tomato slicing option too.
39. Onion goggles
There’s no excuse for tears when cutting onions.
40. Egg scrambler
Every wondered how to make scrambled eggs? Wonder no more!
