Fun, Cool And Creative Kitchen Gadgets And Tools


I love to make delicious food with cool and hip kitchen tools or gadgets, so I thought I would share a few I found that caught my attention. Of course, I'm always looking for a way to slice my food without slicing my fingers and these cool kitchen gadgets fit the bill.

The first is just a standard egg slicer. This particular egg slicer happens to be from  IKEA.
  • It is bright yellow
  • Faster, safer than using a knife
  • Slice your egg with one quick motion
  • Has a removable steel frame
  • Easy to clean construction
  • Dishwasher safe 
I can almost taste some homemade Fancy Bright Beet Pickled Deviled Eggs. Yum!

There are also egg slicers that look fun like this cleverly shaped cartoon character egg slicer from Neatoama.
  • Slice hard and soft boiled eggs evenly
  • Faster, safer than using a knife
  • Slice your egg with one quick motion
  • Only hand washable


If you're going to slice eggs, then how about slicing a soft fruit like a banana. The Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer is pretty cool.
  • Faster, safer than using a knife
  • Great for cereal
  • Plastic, dishwasher safe
  • Slice your banana with one quick motion
  • Kids love slicing their own bananas

My choice for a banana slicer, however, has to go to Chef’n Banana Slicer by Williams-Sonoma.
  • Easy-to-use tool 
  • Lightning-fast slicing of bananas
  • Creates thin, uniform slices
  • Stainless–steel blades for precision slicing
  • Safe, innovative design 
  • Dishwasher safe

While you're admiring the Chef’n Banana Slicer by Williams-Sonoma you might as well also check out the Chef’n Strawberry Slicer by Williams-Sonoma too.
  • Easy-to-use tool 
  • Lightning-fast slicing of strawberries
  • Creates thin, uniform slices
  • Stainless–steel blades for precision slicing
  • Safe, innovative design 
  • Dishwasher safe
This would work so great for the No Eggs No Bake Banana Split Cake With Cream Cheese. Yes, that is definitely one of my all time favorite desserts. Not only does it look beautiful, but it tastes divine. So having all the banana slices the exact same width would only add to the perfect.


There's another choice that will slice not only eggs, but it will also slice fruit, vegetables and other soft, edible foods. This tool is called a mandoline. Picture below is a nice one from Williams-Sonoma called the Chef'n Pull'n Slice Mandoline.
  • Safety head completely covers blade
  • Accommodates foods up to 3.5 inches in diameter
  • No-skid feet provide greater stability and safety
  • Several blades - straight, French fry and julienne 
  • Adjusts for desired slice thickness
  • Hand wash to prevent blades from dulling
I wouldn't need this strawberry slicer to make a Perfect Strawberry Milkshake, but I'm sure I could find a recipe that required perfect slices of strawberries!


With such a fancy and efficient mandoline, why wouldn't I choose it over the individual slicers that are made for a specific food? Maybe if I say klutzy, my meaning will fly over your head, but what if I said that I don't like to eat my own skin.

Honesty people!! Mandolines always take a little piece of me because my fingers and knuckles get in the way. Actually, I think the mandoline blade jumps up and bites me, but that story will have to wait until later.
