You Don’t Need Gadgets To Cook
For some reason, people seem to love kitchen gadgets; I don't. Garlic peeler? Who needs it when you have a chef's knife and a cutting board. Quesadilla maker? Hello frying pan, grill, or baking sheet.
That's why I found Victor Paul Alvarez's blog interesting reading. He lists things like Banana Slicers, Microwave Omelette Makers, Garlic Peelers, Pressure Cookers, Woks, even Margarita Makers.
Off the top of my head - I would add Ice Tea Makers and - those K-Cup coffee makers. Did you know that a recent study of K-Cup coffee prices demonstrated that if you compare the cost-per-ounce of those handy little K-Cups, you're paying $50 a pound for that coffee?
