10 For $10: Kitchen Gadgets Edition


One of the things I hear again & again is that a lot of you actually really dig this feature. So I’m keeping it! As always, below is a list of 10 fantastic gift ideas for $10 or less (not including shipping and taxes). This month I’m highlighting 10 handy kitchen helpers that make wonderful hostess or thank you gifts.

Cuisipro Pocket Grater 3 in 1

Cuisipro Pocket Grater 3 in 1 – $9.99 @ Linen Chest
Small enough to tuck into a pocket, this 3-in-1 grater comes with a protective case and is a great asset when you want to add fresh parm (or whatever cheese) to your salads, soups and more – whether at work, enjoying a picnic, or something in between.

Juicer Pro Juice ExtractorJuicer Pro Juice Extractor – $5.99 @ Bed, Bath & Beyond
Where has this device been all my life? Long story short, you simply slice a citrus fruit in half, pop it into the serrated port included in this juicer, and presto – awesome, seed-free juice extraction.

Trudeau Corp Garlic PeelerTrudeau Corp Garlic Peeler – $6.49 (click for stores)
One of my most hated kitchen tasks is peeling the skin off of garlic. This handy silicon mat does it for you – simply insert the garlic and roll it back and forth to free your garlic from its ‘shell’.

Quirky NibbleNibble – $5 @ Quirky
Want to have your cake and eat it too? This unique non-stick baking ban includes a mini cup so you can have a bite size portion of your cake right off the hop, instead of waiting for interminable hours while your cake cools off and your guests show up.
***Note that this price is based on the price I saw at the time of writing this…the regular price was listed as $12.99 so if it jumps up, that’s my explanation.

Chef'n Fridge ForkChef’n FridgeFork – $6.99 @ Amazon.ca
There are some kitchen gadgets that admittedly, serve a relatively limited purpose…but they make GREAT gifts for people that love very specific things (see: strawberry hullers). Such is the case with this little fork that includes an adjustable band so it can fit perfectly around any little pickle or olive jar. Dip the fork in and keep your fingers out, and let it drip into the attached container between uses. Perfect for post-work snacks.

Box Potato ChopperFritz Box Potato Chipper – $7.49 @ Kitchen Stuff Plus
Make homemade french fries in a flash with this handy box-style cutter. Simply insert a potato and press down and boom, a pile o’ fries. Also works with vegetables and cheese.

Stainless Steel SoapMagic Oval Kitchen Bar – $3.60 @ Bang Good
An eco-friendly bar of ‘soap’ that will take away not-so-pleasant kitchen smells? You bet. After working with garlic, onion, or other fragrant foods, simply rinse your hands under water, using this magic bar the same way you would soap, and you’ll be amazed at how the smells disappear. Plus it never runs out!

Spritta Fruit Garnishing SetSpritta Fruit Garnishing Set – $4.99 @ IKEA
As I’m writing this post I’m noticing a theme…apparently white & green are THE colours for kitchen gadgets. Anyway, this 3-piece set offers incredible value, with handy tools to help you make melon balls, get citrus zest or core fruits. A perfect pick for bartenders in particular.

Batter Dispenser PenNordic Ware Batter Dispenser Pen – $9.25 @ Golda’s Kitchen
A wonderful selection for bakers, this unique batter pen can be used in a myriad of ways. Create charming messages or your kids’ names to get them to eat their pancakes in the morning. Or expertly fill a cupcake pan when working in layers, create elaborate webbed cookie patterns (like Madelines) or ensure you don’t overfill the waffle iron. You can even store your leftover batter in the fridge between uses.

NorPro Carrot CurlerNorpro Carrot Curler – $7.99 @ Kitchen Niche
Part pencil sharpener, part garnish master, this decorative device makes it a snap to add fanciful vegetable flourishes to all of your dishes – like cucumber, radish or carrot blooms. A great choice for the consummate hostess.
