I love Kitchen Gadgets, as my column from today shows. And I am not done gabbing about them!
This is why
This is a stunner I made for the DH with large cookie cutters I picked up from Arif doubling as pancake rings.
And this breakfast full of LOVE for my son! This happened with the help of a lovely little heart shaped pancake ring I picked up from Chefsaid.
Although I love the cookie cutters for the vertical creative license they allow (pile it on!) I have to say the Chefs aid ones are SO much more convenient to use.
As you can see they have a very useful little folding handle - you pull it up when you are using the ring so it can be lifted of when whatever you are cooking gets done and and conveniently fold it down when you want to store it. The biggest plus however is that there is no seepage from under them, a problem I faced with my stand in Arif ones. I have used them for pancakes, dosas, eggs and chillas so far with no complaints and cheesy as it sounds - it's amazing what kids will eat if you package it right. Note to self:- get circle and flower rings before son wakes up to the LOVELY HEARTS con!
