Best / Worst Kitchen Gadgets For Christmas 2010

By Posted 5 Nov 2010, 18:54

Christmas is not that far away, but those of you in the U.S. have Thanksgiving and Black Friday 2010 to get out of the way first. Most of the time over the holiday season is spent in the kitchen, as we get the dinner ready for the big day. Over the years we have become more reliant on gadgets in the kitchen to make life much easier.

We thought we would have a little search to see what we thought were the best and worst kitchen gadgets. The first device that I believe every kitchen should have is a coffee machine, and the ‘SAECO XELSIS DIGITAL ID’ coffeemaker is a perfect choice. You can select the strength and the amount of froth you like, and then save that setting with your fingerprint. So the next time you want a coffee, just let the machine scan your fingerprint and it will do he hard work for you. Get more details here.

Another gadget is the ‘Moistly Roasted Oven Humidifier’. If you want to cook your turkey to perfection over Thanksgiving or Christmas, then this needs to be in your kitchen. All you need to do is fill the pan with whatever liquid takes your fancy and allow it to cook in its own juices while the pan sits on top. Visit Sur La Table for more details.

Most would agree that one of the worst gadgets ever for use in the kitchen is the humble garlic press. Ok, we know that it makes life much easier, but we have to advise you that it destroys the flavor of the garlic. The best way to prepare you garlic is by taking your knife and use it to press down hard on the garlic. Read more details on this at Chicago Now.

One of the most useless kitchen gadgets has to be these ‘Pizza Scissors‘. Why would anyone want to use these, when a pizza cutter is a much better, easier and cleaner tool to use?

    Plenty of stupid and useless items out there. Number one on my list of uselessness is the neck basket. How stupid is that? Then, that foot scrubber with the suction cups. If only advertisers knew what the general public really thought of this junk they peddle, we wouldn't have to all be bored out of our minds during those five minutes or longer infomercals! I bless the person who came up with the mute button on the remote, as mine does get a workout!
