Do you love spending time in the kitchen creating new recipes and cooking meals for your family? Is entertaining one of your favorite things to do and the kitchen is a place for you to serve drinks, socialize, and prepare fun appetizers? No matter what those who own Del Mar homes use their kitchen for, they usually appreciate a little help from some ingenious kitchen gadgets. Want to make your kitchen more functional? Consider acquiring one of the following:
Do you like to use fresh corn straight off the cob in your recipes? Every home chef knows that getting corn off the cob usually results in a big mess and that you frequently leave plenty of corn still attached. That’s where the Chef’n Cob Corn Stripper comes in. This handy little gadget easily takes all of the corn off the cob in one quick motion, leaving nothing behind—not even a mess on your countertop.
Del Mar homes that have kitchens smelling of freshly-ground herbs or coffee are a true joy. You can achieve this goal—and create some fabulous dishes in the process—with the Krups Electric Spice and Coffee Grinder. Even professional chefs swear by this handy little gadget that allows you to create your own spice blends, prepare barista-quality morning drinks, and even use it as a mini food processor if you’re short on space.
“Noodles” made out of veggies are in vogue for those who are a little adventurous when it comes to their recipes. However, creating those noodles with a veggie peeler can be hit or miss. Traditional spiralizers take up a lot of room and are difficult to clean. That’s where the Fullstar Vegetable Spiralizer comes in. This handheld gadget has four different blade options so that you can create any type of noodle you need, and it’s a snap to clean.
Del Mar homes with dieters in the house often have a kitchen scale present to help measure food portions, but kitchen scales can also be used by home chefs, as they are more reliable than measuring cups or spoons. No matter what you’re using it for, buying a quality scale is key and chefs from around the country swear by the Escali Primo Precision model for its trustworthiness.
Del Mar homes with burnt-on stains on cooktops usually have a cook in the house who has experienced the dreaded boil-over. If you need to boil some pasta, cook some rice, or simmer some lentils, the Kuhn Rikon Kochblume Spill Stopper is your best friend. This gadget has a two-tier lid that lets pressure and steam escape and blocks any boiling water that tries to slop over the top of your pot.
Full-size blenders take up a lot of cupboard or counter space and handheld versions can be tough to clean. Solve both problems with the Cuisinart Hand Blender. These blenders have detachable parts that are easy to clean and everything stays organized in a brilliant storage case that can double as a pitcher or measuring cup.
Want to check the progress of your meat without opening the oven (or smoker) door and letting out all of the heat? Then you need the Mastrad Meat It Bluetooth Wireless Cooking Sensor that lets you know when your meat hits the exact right temp no matter where you happen to be. Chefs love this handy gadget and swear it helps them make perfectly-cooked meat dishes every time. Del Mar homes that have smokers or grills should have this gadget handy at all times.
How long does it take to boil an egg, again? Ten minutes? Twelve? Making perfectly-boiled eggs is a time suck and can be frustrating if you continually get eggs with runny yolks. Eliminate the stress involved with boiling eggs with the DASH Rapid Egg Cooker. It makes perfectly hard-boiled eggs six at a time and takes up very little counter or cupboard space. This gadget is perfect for homeowners who enjoy eggs in their salad or as healthy grab-and-go snacks.
Everyone loves the convenience of appliances like toaster ovens, air fryers, and dehydrators, but few new Del Mar homes have the counter space to fit them all. Enter the KBS 8-in-1 Small Stainless Steel Toaster Oven. Not only does it take the place of the oven for smaller jobs, but it also functions as an air fryer, dehydrator, defroster, toaster, and more! It’s the perfect little appliance for those who often make smaller meals or snacks for one or two people.
