Today, I wanted to feature three of my kitchen must-haves: a strainer spoon, a pastry scraper and a nylon whisk:
WMF Profi Plus Fine Mesh Strainer is perfect. I hate having to pull out the big, in the sink strainer when making pasta. With this little gadget, I just dip into the pot, and the strain and transfer the noodles into the sauce right there on the stove. I have also used it strain meat and bacon. It is great for blanching vegetables. It has a larger surface area than a traditional slotted spoon so you can move a lot more food around.
Oxo Good Grips Nylon Balloon Whisk is the savior for my nonstick pans. We have a lot of non-stick pans. Recently, I noticed I was scratching them with my regular whisk as I made sauces, soups, ice creams, etc. This was the perfect solution. A solid whisk that is safe for non-stick pans.
Oxo 73281 OXO Good Grips Pastry Scraper is so handy. If you have ever found yourself unsuccessfully trying to shove all your chopped vegetables into your hands to transfer to the pot, then this is for you. I love being able to load up the scraper and then transfer everything to the bowl. It is really good for tomatoes. Now, I don't think this is really what you are supposed to use this for, but it works for me!
