I've got two kitchen gadgets that I couldn't live without. Both of them I was skeptical of, until I had them in my kitchen drawer... now I can't imagine my kitchen without them.
The first, an apple slicer. I thought ahhhhhhhhhhh, what do I need with this. I can just as easily cut up an apple myself. But my friend convinced me this would be worth it, and it is. Less waste, easy to clean up and more apple munching, a win, Win, WIN! I chose the one from OXO, an great company who places function and form at the same priority.
Second is the citrus juicer. For a Greek girl who uses lemon in just about everything, this is priceless. Heavy in the hand, and gets as much juice out of a lemon as I've ever seen. My sweet husband came home with the big orange one on the right, and it works for everything. Try it!
What else can't we live without in our kitchens?
