Monday, November 17, 2014
Thanksgiving is just a week away, and let’s face it, no one wants to be stuck working in the kitchen all day when you could be cheering on your favorite football team or spending time with family and friends. So, the team at IT Resource has put together a list of our favorite cooking gadgets that will make your life just a little easier. With items like a high powered blender to a simple scale, we’re giving you the 411 on the gadgets that saved us the most time and provided the best value. Let us know what your favorite gadgets are too, by commenting below.
OXO Good Grips Digital Food Scale with Pull-Out Display
We love this scale because it’s easy to use, easy to read, has an 11 pound max and the display extends out for when you are weighing larger objects. Using this scale makes weighing food more accurate and quicker than using measuring cups, especially for dry ingredients. $50
Ninja Master Prep Blender
This blender is extremely affordable and it won’t bog down when it’s full of ice and liquid. While there are plenty of blender options out there, we agree that the Ninja Master Prep is the best for your money and a must have for daily smoothie makers, we even have one in the office kitchen at ITR! $51
Presto Pizza Pizzazz
This gadget is a huge timesaver when cooking foods like pizza, appetizers, quesadillas or garlic bread. Just plug it in and it’s instantly heated and ready to cook. Its rotating base ensures even baking so you never have cold spots and it’s more energy efficient than using a conventional oven. It’s great for warming up leftover pizza, making it nice and crispy. $60
OXO Good Grips Digital Instant Read Thermometer
This thermometer is durable and accurate, displaying a digital number which makes it easy to read, and it’s super easy to clean. For your convenience, it even has the recommended cooking temperatures for various meats right on the thermometer. $20
Chef’n PalmPeeler
This tool makes peeling vegetables or potatoes quick, easy and safe! One side has a soft rubber grip that fits right in the palm of your hand while the other side has a stainless steel blade. Your hand is covered while you peel eliminating the risk of accidentally cutting yourself. $10
Cuisinart Smartstick 2 Speed Hand Blender
This hand held blender stick is an efficient kitchen staple! Making creams, sauces or dips of all kinds has never been so easy. You can even stick it right into a heated pot on the stove to thicken up the sauce. The wand comes apart for easy hand washing or it can go in the dishwasher. $35
OXO Good Grips Salad Spinner
This salad spinner is durable and works like a charm every time. It keeps your leafy greens dry and crisp which helps prevent premature spoilage and wilting. The spinner, which also doubles as a colander, dries out the leaves leaving them crisp and delicious for salads. You can even throw in herbs or berries that need drying, making your salads perfect for dressing. $30
All Clad Deluxe Slow Cooker with Cast Aluminum Insert
This top of the line crock pot has all the bells and whistles. The aluminum insert can be removed and placed directly on the stove top to brown ingredients prior to slow cooking or even sear the meat right in the pot. It has a programmable timer that allows you to begin cooking at one temperature, then change to a different temperature at a different time. $249

We certainly can’t create this list without recommending some of our old time vintage favorites! Both available in mint condition on
