I completely admit to being a kitchen gadget hoarder. I'm particularly an avid hoarder of innovative pots and pans products. In the post below, you'll find all of my favorites. If you've got a favorite, feel free to share!
Favorite Pots & Pans Products
Cast Iron Lid
If you have a cast iron skillet, you need a lid. Right? Lodge makes lids in three sizes: 12 inch, 10.25, and 8.
Non-Stick Ceramic Fry Pan
I own a GreenLife pan, and I gotta say food really doesn't stick. Cleanup is ridiculously easy. I recommend checking out the whole GreenLife collection. They make everything from woks to cake pans.
I really dislike the scratches left by steel wool and scratch pads. Lodge scrapers are designed to safely scrape pans without scratching.
Boil Over SafeGuard Lid
I received this lid for Christmas, and it works as advertised. The lid prevents boil-overs and fits openings with a 6" to 10" diameter.
Silicone Hot Handle Holder
I think this is pretty nifty. The holder offers protection up to 450-degrees.
Universal Pot & Pan Lid
Another Christmas gift, and I love it! The Kuhn Rikon Smart is a universal lid that can be set to trap steam in the pan or release it. Universal lids are terrific for small space kitchens like mine.
Heat-Resistant GlovesThere are a variety of cooking gloves available, but I use Gulife Oven Gloves for handling hot items in the kitchen. Every cook should have these!
The creator of this snap in strainer was a genius. It's practical and easier to store than the traditional strainers. It clips on a variety of pot sizes and bowls. Really a cool gadget to have in the kitchen.
Stove Top Popcorn Popper
This would make a great gift for popcorn lovers. It makes 5-quarts of popcorn in just a few minutes.
Multi Purpose Kitchen Tool
What's great about this tool, is it's versatility. It can be used as a trivets, pot holders, spoon rest, jar opener, or coaster. It's extremely heat resistant, and if it becomes worn or damaged, they'll replace it at no cost.
Cute Kitchen Set
I know...these aren't as practical as the oven gloves above, but everyone needs an attractive set of pot holders and oven mitts. Just cause.
