It was first introduced to me by my mother-in-law who lived in New Orleans. Forget that they tell you it’s only for making roux. When cooking on the stove I use it all of the time, and it has become my favorite. Need to scrape the brown bits off the bottom (or sides) of this pan? No problem.
Hand Immersion Blender: $35
This is by far the most ridiculously handy and smart appliance I have. I love to make homemade soups, and before I had one of them (also given to me by my in-laws!) , I was wasting time and also creating a massive mess when pureeing soups.You see, I was transferring my soups (in batches, no less) to the counter top blender, and if your bud is still holding the chunky soup and the blender is stuffed to the max with pureed soup, where-oh-where would you put it so you can continue pureeing the remaining soup?? Once again, HUGE mess. Not to mention a friend once told me that the heat of the soup she had been pureeing forced the lid to fly off her counter top blender, and it almost burned her. So please do yourself a huge favor and invest in one of these bad boys, and when you’re at it, get one for each cook (or aspiring cook) you know!
It’s officially time to start making your list and checking it twice! So I’ve got some little present ideas for you – some of my favorite things that I use and love in my kitchen frequently. In my mind, when it comes to gift giving there’s just nothing better than something that is really practical and useful. Here are six super cheap kitchen tools that fit the bill, and one splurge bonus recommendation that will make the cook (or aspiring cook) in your life feel extra special! It would fit in a stocking.
