best thing I ever bought was my halogen oven. Have given up buying gadgets now. Older and wiser what I spend money on.

When did you last see an ad for a kitchen gadget.........

That came with a set of six steak knives?

I stupidly bought a set knives from seeing a TV advert.

Hate them!!!

We did use some of them as we all took them to work to cut up fruit etc and I left some of them in the dining area in the drawer.

I have 2 'good kitchen knives' ..which I can use for almost anything.

How many of you have a spurtle?

After he reviewed and raved about its qualities, I recently bought my son a sous vide. He loves steaks and says this prepares them to absolute perfection.

I ate (my first) one on Easter Sunday prepared this way and I have to say it truly was delicious.

It ain't cheap, however!

A Spurtle?
You mean one of them things like a spork pie with legs??
I have 2 flat wooden stirring sticks tho, if that counts.

Thanks to the internet I now know what is a spurtle & a sous vide - never heard of them before. Somebody mentioned a cake tested - I bought one recently It i the only thig long enough and thin enough to test a cake without letting in to much air

A spurtle is a stick for stirring porridge!

Very Scottish. I have two, one of them has a thistle on the top.

It's not a spoon or a fork, just a rounded stick.

It's also good for sauces & gravy :-D

An Englishman won the Golden Spurtle last year (best porridge maker)........

Nah, I think a spurtle is a shell shaped sporran with pop out legs. :-D

I had a wooden spoon which had a hole in it. It was great for stirring sauces. It disappeared :-(

A freebie we have is a

Magic Spiral. Creates Continuous Spiral Garnishings

Apart from a quick play with a cucumber (now, now!) its stayed in its box.


LadyScozz Report 3 Apr 2013 12:11

Oooh island, maybe it disappeared into its own hole?


Shell shaped sporran with pop out legs? I think my cousin Hamish has one of them. :-)
