Lasang Pinoy, Sundays #28: Kitchen Gadgets

I have three favorite kitchen gadgets.  Unfortunately, I didn’t have the time to take a pic of one of them.  Sowee. :D

The one I use most often, would have to be my garlic press.

I just love it! I made an earlier post about it here.

For baking, I turn to my hand mixer for recipes that require a little more consistent beating…

The hand mixer I’m currently using is only about 2 months old.  It’s my third.  The first two conked out on me in the middle of a baking flurry.  That’s what I get for being cheapskate. :P

My third favorite gadget (and hubby’s, too!) would be our coffeemaker.  It’s another cheap-o, but hey, it brews coffee just the same so it’ll have to do.  But we’re already looking into upgrading it.  We’ll see.

For six days in early November, I was the proud owner of what could have been a hands-down favorite kitchen gadget, a Kitchen Aid stand mixer…

Unfortunately, I had to return it when I realized that what I thought was a good deal wasn’t such a good deal after all.  In the six days that it was in my possession, it never saw the light of day.  The box remained unopened and it just sat there on the kitchen floor.  It probably wasn’t meant to be just yet.  If my hand mixer goes kaputt on me, I’ll take that as a sign that maybe, I really am ready for every avid baker’s must have kitchen gadget. ;)

Have a great weekend, y’all!

  1. […] would have taken a photo of my (almost) newly bought Rubbermaid can opener as suggested my Munchkin Mommy but then I thought about my Tupperware Quick Chef Food Processor which is rarely used. Mine though […]

    Aray ko sa hand mixer!

    Maybe you need a bigger stand mixer that’s why you had to give it back :)

    I love my garlic press too! Mine is from Pampered Chef and I would be lost without it! The fact that you don’t even the skin of the clove after you “press” still impresses me! Although, my hand mixer doesn’t see as much action as all of yours, I love the fact, I have more control over it. The Kitchen Aid would only be displayed…cuz I would be too intimidated by it…and I have always wanted one!

    The garlic press is a great gadget. I’ve always wanted to get that kitchen aid mixer but it’s too expensive.

    Finally got me a garlic press that works lately – parang identical twin ng sa iyo. Same ba ang mother (Ikea)? Hahaha! :lol: And yes, it’s such a joy to use it :) Nagtatampo na ang ang aking stone mortar and pestle at di na masyado napapansin…

    My hand mixer is even newer but I got a really cheap one as am still quite “iffy” in “launching” my so-called “baking adventures”… Let’s see how it goes.
