Crucial or Needless?
I'm a gadget minimalist, but the following kitchen tools culled off the Well Fed Network's various sites are kind of intriguing:
--The Food Loop, a kind of reusable kitchen string (for tying up joints of meat, piles of stockpot veg, etc.)
--The OXO Angled Measuring Cup, so that you don't have to bend in half when you're pouring out milk or oil.
This one, on the other hand, is just stupid: Spepper, a salt-and-pepper mix.
But I LOVE these toasters by the Sarut group!
