If you love food and cooking, preparing a meal can be one of the most exciting and wonderful things to do. And sometimes, it gets more fun if you have awesome kitchen tools around.


Yep, if you haven’t discovered some, there are actually a lot of cool kitchen gadgets out there that can help you spice up your cooking life and transform your kitchen into the coolest place in your house. You can grill your steak right with the help of a thermometer, or cook three different courses all at the same time using just one steamer. Interesting?


This Wednesday, I’m sharing kitchen gadgets that are perfect for us food lovers (and feeling chefs). Enjoy!


Shake It Ice Cream Maker


I haven’t met a person who doesn’t love ice cream at all. Of course, what man could resist a cup of this sweet, frozen delight? It’s one of the best ways to relieve stress and to beat down the heat, especially now that summer is coming.

The good thing now is you can finally make your very own ice cream without the hassle! With the Shake It Ice Cream Maker, you can enjoy a cup of your favorite dessert in just 3 minutes!


I know, this might not be the first home-made ice cream maker that you’ve seen, but this is so cool it doesn’t need electricity to work! You just have to mix all your ingredients in the cup, cover it, and shake it like there’s no tomorrow! The Shake It Ice Cream Maker also includes a list of ice cream recipes, so if you’re a first timer, there’s nothing to worry about. More about this cool kitchen gadget here!



Three Course Electric Steamer


Why spend most of your time preparing only one food if you can cook different courses all at the same time?

When I first discovered this unique electric steamer, I know it’s love at first sight. It has this awesome feature that every busy person is looking for: it can steam three different foods at different temperatures yet completes each at the same time. Talk about multi-tasking!


The machine has three separate compartments that can hold fish fillets and vegetables (or anything you want to steam). And just by selecting “fish,” “root vegetables,” and “vegetables” on the LCD control panel, you can cook all the three foods simultaneously until they’re tender. It also has a button that when pressed, keeps the food warm without overcooking. Its plastic steaming chambers and lids are dishwasher safe, too.



Drop – Your Kitchen Assistant


For a beginner, cooking may seem difficult and challenging. Especially with all those measuring, mixing, and chopping that you have to do. That’s why it felt so relieving when I found out there’s a cool kitchen gadget that can assist us in cooking.

Drop is a kitchen scale, but it can do more than that!


It gives you accurate weighing and works with an iPad app that will track how well you are doing with that recipe you’re preparing. Believe it or not, but this gadget can take you step-by-step through interactive recipes. You no longer need to use measuring cups, because Drop, when connected to the iPad app, can give you accurate weighing with a range from 6kg to under a gram. It also has a capacitive touch button that interacts with the app, so you don't have to tap your tablet with messy fingers.

SteakChamp Thermometer


Not sure if it’s just me, or grilled foods (like steaks) are really the hardest to prepare? Aside from the fact that you have to look over it frequently, you can’t easily know if it has already meat your standards (no pun intended) of “perfectly tender”.

Thank goodness this SteakChamp Thermometer was invented. Now you can get your steak right without the worries!


To use this brilliant device, you just have to activate it by placing it in the cradle, and then insert it sideways into your raw steak. When you see a slow flash, that means your steak is close to reaching its desired tenderness. And when a fast, double flash appears, that’s when you remove the steak from the grill.

Aside from these four, I also want to share other cool tools that you might want to have in your kitchen.
