Souvenirs of a Kitchen Gadget Girl

As you know, we like to travel, and 2013 has been a great year for us. We have been hither and yon several different times. My family does not tolerate a ton of shopping, but when they let me loose, I love to seek out fun kitchen tools and gadgets to bring home. Here is my collection from this year’s travels:

Germany:

From Kustermann’s in Munich, I found this Clack Egg Topper from Take-2 Design in Germany. I use it to remove the tops of soft boiled eggs for breakfast!

Japan:

From a kitchen store along the Kappabashi Dori in Tokyo, I brought home Tokai stainless steel tongs as a gift of friendship from Kyoko. Very handy for serving at dinner!

Denmark:

From Illums Bolighus in Copenhagen, I found this cute Lucie Kaas Bordfolk (Table People) to bring home for my morning soft boiled eggs (theme, maybe?)

Sweden:

From the Wallåkra Stenkarlsfabrik in Vallåkra, I picked up a Swedish butter spreader, like the one pictured above. Mine is made of juniper wood and has a wonderful aroma, and we use it daily for our butter and toast.

And during a walk around Lund, Sweden, in Western Skåne, I bought a 1dl measuring cup, manufactured by the Swedish company Linden-Jonas. The 1dl is the perfect size to make many of the recipes my Swedish friends have shared!

What is the most interesting souvenir you have ever brought home from vacation?
