For many of us, the kitchen is more than a space to make meals. It’s a place where we get creative, and like any true artist, we need to make sure we have the right tools for our craft. That’s why you should always be on the lookout for new kitchen gadgets and accessories to help you create culinary masterpieces.
Of course, there are hundreds (if not thousands) of new kitchen implements introduced every year, so how can you tell the fab from the fad. Short of buying them all and testing them out yourself, this article is the next best option. Read on! Here are 2018’s coolest kitchen gadgets and accessories.
- Glass Brush
If you hand wash dishes or have a precious crystal, you absolutely need a dish brush — and not just any dish brush. We love the dish brush from In Bed because of it’s ingenious round-head design and natural composition: each brush is made from materials like oak, maple and horse hair. These ensure your brushes last longer and give you better, clearer results.
- Avocado Slicer
If you’ve hit this healthy fat trend hardcore, then you’re going to love the avocado slicer from OXO. Featuring a hold-fast grip, this nifty kitchen implement is a 5-in-1 sliver that can split, put, slice and peel an avocado faster than you can say guacamole. OK, almost as fast.
- Herb Scissors
Finally! Scissors that can mince your fresh herbs for optimal seasoning! Chefast has a great product that can also be used for veggies, featuring five blades so your herbs are perfectly aromatic and ready to use.
- Heat Scoop
You know the pain: you’re trying to scoop up some delicious ice cream and it’s frozen solid. Ugh! It’s hard to wait for this sweet treat, and thanks to a heat conducting ice cream scoops, you don’t have to! This inspired tool conducts heat from your hand through the handle, to the scoop for easier scooping. Uncommon Goods makes a great product if you want a solid recommendation.
- Snap Strainer
Ever lose your pasta or rice to the sink when you’re trying to strain? It’s a messy, annoying pain, and thankfully, it can be avoided. Kitchen Gizmo has a strainer that can snap onto a pot for easy, effective straining of pasta, rice, vegetables — just about anything!
Try these cool kitchen gadgets out and enjoy more fun, creativity, and ease during meal prep! Happy cooking!
