I have a little secret to let you in on today. I’m obsessed with kitchen gadgets. Seriously. I have so many random things in our kitchen because I think they are so cool and I *might* just one day need them. Any time that we walk into a store that has a section for kitchen gadgets, I aimlessly wonder, looking at them all, and wondering if I may or may not happen to need one of them. Needless to say, when I was invited to work with KitchenIQ and see some of their prized kitchen gadgets, I jumped at the chance. I was even more excited that I got to invite some of my friends over for a party to test them out with me.
What I love most about the KitchenIQ products that I was sent and the others that I have seen on their website is that these gadgets are not only superior to other brands I’ve tried, but they also are products that are sure to be used. Even the ones that you may question, “Would I ever really use this?” you find yourself asking later, “OMG, why don’t I have this”. For example, their pepper tool – I remember looking on the website and wondering why I would ever need something like that. A few weeks later, I found myself buying a case of peppers because our local farm stand was closing early and had an amazing deal. Thirty-three peppers were in the case! It would have been so much easier with the KitchenIQ pepper tool.
So let’s talk about what they did send! A 3-in-1 potato tool, Edge Grip Knife Sharpener, and the Better Zester. All my friends that came also got to go home with their own Better Zester, which they were super excited about.
It’s pointless to even be in your kitchen if you have dull knives. Not only is it dangerous, but it takes so much longer to do anything with a dull knife. KitchenIQ’s best selling product on Amazon is their Edge Grip Knife Sharpener. I’ll be honest, in that I don’t sharpen my knives often because before receiving this, I only have the sharpener that came in our block and let’s be honest, it’s a pain in the butt to use that thing. The Edge Grip Knife Sharpener has made sharpening our knives so much better. Because of its unique design it can sharpen double-beveled Euro or American style knives and features two stages of sharpening — a course slot for blades that are dull or damaged and a fine slot for knives that need finishing or polishing or light touch-ups.
The Potato Tool is the perfect kitchen gadget, that every home needs. It’s a 3-in-1 tool that has a scrub brush for cleaning potatoes and other veggies, a peeler, and stored inside the bottom is a paring knife. It’s non-stick stainless steel coated blades on both the straight edge peeler and paring knife. It would be awesome to take this on camping trips too! I’ve used it for so much more than potatoes and during the party showed using it for peeling and cutting cucumbers and carrots too.
Lastly, we received the Better Zester. Honestly, at first, I laughed at the name. I mean how can you make a “zester better”. It just needs to zest. Well, like the other items, KitchenIQ proved why indeed their product is superior and why you really do need a Better Zester than the one you currently have. It has hundreds of stainless steel v-etched blades that make zesting all kinds of citruses a breeze. But the biggest “AHA” moment that makes this product superior is the fresh zest container that not only contains what you are zesting, but it also has measurement marks which tell you how much you have zested. I can’t tell you how many times I have been making a recipe that calls for a tablespoon of lemon zest and I just end up zesting the whole lemon and hoping for the best. This makes it so much easier!
KitchenIQ really blew my mind with how incredible kitchen gadgets really can be and how useful they can make my life. I highly recommend everyone checking them out for themselves. My friends were amazed at how easy they made everything.
