Let me tell you something about kitchen gadgets: I don’t like them.
I don’t like them because they take up space and, I don’t know about you, but in my kitchen, countertop real estate is in high demand.
I also don’t like kitchen gadgets because I think that they create a barrier between the chef and the food.
I know it sounds super geeky, but I believe in learning to cook by doing. Getting your hands dirty. Putting your back in to it.
Nothing’s getting dirty with the Slap Chop.
Nobody’s putting their back into anything with the Amco Egg Cracker.
Really? There’s a gadget out there for breaking eggs?
Yes, people. And you can pay $8.57 for it! $8.57 to crack eggs! Sanity! You’ve deserted us!
So you’ll understand when I tell you that it took me ten years to commit to purchasing a rice maker.
The fact of the matter is that A. loves rice and I was spending a lot of time slaving over sixty trillion hot pots every night just trying to get dinner to the table.
Why not give myself the option to slave over just 59,999,999,999,999?
So I took the leap. And now I’m in gadget love.
