Capture the Everyday: Kitchen Gadgets I cant live without

While I should say that I can’t live without a knife and a chopping block – I am assuming that all kitchens would have it, so here are my three things…

Rice Cooker – If you didn’t know yet, I’m Filipino. I eat EVERYTHING with rice. I know how to cook rice on a stovetop, but nothing beats making rice in the plug and flick way.(if you click on the link, mine comes with a steamer attachment)

Jar Opener – I don’t have a strong grip and this makes me feel like the Incredible Hulk. It is like a rubberized hanky that you put over your jar which helps you grip the cover tight. Then you twist. I know of other jar opening contraptions but this stores ultra flat. Its washable too!

Kuhn Rikon Vegetable Peeler – I discovered the joys of this vegetable peeler from my husband! It’s actually his and I LOVE IT! it peels squash!! Imagine. SQUASH! Carrots? Hah! You *gently* glide this baby on it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

**btw, I do not have a blue themed kitchen. It was purely coincidence that the jar opener and peeler are blue.

Capture the Everyday from Adventuroo

Your turn!

If you want to participate, just a few things to note:

-Go to Adventuroo's blog and grab a badge, and include it with your post.

- Feel free to write about what you captured. A funny story about it. A history on it. How you’ll remember it. What will you want to remember about that picture 20, 30, 40 years from now?

- Just a picture and a caption are fine too.

- Don’t worry if you “aren’t a good photographer.” Consider this practice. Plus, it’s about capturing the memory, not a pretty picture.

-Link up to Adventuroo’s blog. And see what others have posted!


  1. i cannot live without a rice cooker too... i eat rice way too much! or a kettle..cause i drink coffee everyday

  2. LOL! I dunno about you, but my weight goes down when i eat rice (instead of bread or pasta). So ironic that my *weight loss programs* involves cooking for myself...

    and some dancing on Xbox Kinect!

  3. Sorry I missed this last week! I love the rice cooker-- wish we had one as I imagine it cooks perfectly every time!

  4. Melissa, one day, I will make a post on how to make perfect rice. ON STOVETOP!
