We’re a gadget loving family! We love gadgets and buy way too many. Sometimes they’re quite useful and sometimes they’re not but we’re still suckers for gadgets.
When I was teaching in Louisiana early last spring, my friends took me to a really neat kitchen store. I can’t even remember the name of it. It was kinda like a kitchen/restaurant supply store. I bought some interesting dipping spoon/scoop type things, a cake tester, cannoli tubes and this:
Since I knew we were moving, I just left the whole bag of stuff at mom’s. When we were there a month or so ago, I brought the bag home with me and I couldn’t figure out what this thing was! Anyone know? I looked at the receipt which was thankfully still in the bag, and it’s a citrus peeler. You put it on your finger, poke the little peg thing into the peeling, pull it down and it slices right through the peeling.
Then the little segments of peeling just come right off.
How cool is that for $1? Yes, a regular small kitchen knife does the same trick but it sometimes cuts into the orange. It is a pretty neat little tool but does anyone want to guess how long before this little thing will get lost?
