MEGATech Showcase: Gadgets for Your Kitchen Beth Snyder September 28, 2015 Extras For some people, cooking is drudgery. For others, it’s a means of expressing creativity. For still others, it’s a means to an end, e.g. feeding themselves and their families so they do not starve. For me, it’s a combination of the three, although I do lean more toward enjoying it. One of the things that makes cooking more interesting is owning a variety of kitchen gadgets. Not just gadgets that perform certain tasks, but that also let me have fun doing it. For instance, the T-Rex spaghetti measurer above. Sure, you can measure spaghetti with the standard measurer with round holes, but why would you when you can use this fabulous T-Rex chasing people version? Like other styles, this one has different sized openings based on how much pasta you wish to cook, from child size all the way up to “I could eat a T-Rex”. Add one to your collection for $12.99 US.

They’re calling this one Mamma Nessie since it’s slightly larger (the ladle nests nicely inside it), and I can use something like this at least three times a week. It comes in green or turquoise for just $19.00 US. Source: Gizmodo Skewers are becoming ever more popular, with folks having barbecues year-round instead of just in the summertime. I also have more than once broiled some kebabs rather than firing up the charcoal grill. These cute little guys are made of stainless steel, and are dishwasher safe. As you know, narwhals have a horn like a unicorn, so they’re a natural fit to become BBQ skewers in my book. Each set of two comes with a velvet bag for safe storage, and costs $50.00 US.

Choose between Batman, Superman, or Wonder Woman, and scrape your bowls in style. Each one costs $8.99 US. Source: That’s Nerdalicious I’ve heard for years that you can grow an avocado tree from an avocado pit, but I’ve never had any success. I don’t know if it’s my technique with the toothpicks or my inability to be patient, but I always end up throwing them out after a couple of weeks when they don’t sprout. But maybe the AvoSeedo is the answer! Supposedly, it’ll let you grow an avocado tree no matter where you live. It’s specifically designed to let the pit float at the perfect depth in water to produce sprouts and roots. Of course, once your tree sprouts you’re on your own, but at least the AvoSeedo will get you started. Each one costs $8.00 US, but you can get a discount on multiple units.
