DailyDirt: Useful Cooking Gadgets?
from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Just watch any TV channel when the paid programming kicks in, and you'll eventually see an infomercial for a revolutionary new cooking tool that you can't imagine ever living without. Sure, most of these inventions are probably made of flimsy plastic that will break after a few weeks of casual use, but you'll already have broken even on the time you saved, right? Here are just a few links to some neat kitchen tools that you might want to
try throw in a drawer and forget about.
- A submission for the James Dyson award proposes a kitchen device that uses a laser for automatically cutting up common fruits/vegetables and meat. Warning: Do not look at laser with remaining eye. [url]
- There are a couple cheap robots that will help stir the pots on your stove while you're cooking, but they aren't very good at doing their job. What do you expect for a robot that costs under $10? [url]
- If a robot can't help with the simple job of stirring liquids in the kitchen, maybe a passive design would be more reliable -- a specially shaped pot can create a small whirlpool when water is heated in it. If you're too lazy to stir a pot of boiling water (and whatever food you're cooking), you're probably not cooking that much in the first place.... [url]
