New Kitchen Tools from Cuisipro and VacuVan (and a Giveaway!)

And we have a winner!

Heather C

Thank you to everyone who participated, and be sure to check back soon for more kitchen gadget review and giveaways.

In my post last week about my favorite Thanksgiving gadgets, I realized that I own quite a few Cuisipro and VacuVan kitchen tools. So, I contacted the public relations company for the two companies to find out what is new for the 2009 holidays. And the good news? There is a giveaway!

The Cuisipro Flour Sifter is easy and smooth to use, and the single hand scoop lets a baker scoop up measured flour right into the sifter with one hand. Many of my recipes for baked goods call for sifting the flour, as it fluffs the flour which allows for easier absorption of liquid, and sifting sugar or cocoa is a great way to garnish finished baked goods.

The curved handle is designed so the flour sifter can hang over the edge of a mixing bowl so a baker can use both hands to add other ingredients. And the angled mesh opening releases the sifted ingredients neatly into the bowl, making cleanup much easier. And with a retail price of $14, it would be a great stocking stuffer or gift for your favorite baker (hint, hint!)

VacuVin Nut Cracker

A few years ago, my sister gave me a lovely nutcracker set for Christmas, and it brought back loads of memories of cracking nuts in front of the fireplace during the holidays. The new Vacu Vin Nutcracker is a contemporary take on this old-fashioned tool, providing a stylish update.

You crack whole nuts by pressing the two ergonomically formed handles together and catching the nuts in the base tray. The nice part is, you don’t have to be a body builder to crack the nuts (Brazil nuts spring to mind), the nutcracker requires very little strength even on hard-shelled nuts. Retail price is about $25.

VacuVinPineappleSlicer

And finally, if the cold, cold winter has you thinking about tropical islands, then the new Pineapple Slicer from Vacu Vin might be just the ticket. I had heard about a tool like this before, and the Vacu Vin model is just as easy as can be. You cut the top off your pineapple, then use the slicer just like a corkscrew to remove the flesh in perfectly formed rings. The core is removed at the same time. All this sounds much easier than opening a can of pineapple pieces!

The Pineapple Slicer retails for $14, another great stocking stuff price. It comes in white or stainless steel. And now….
