Top Kitchen Gadgets for Xmas 2007

Following my top picks for wine and books this Christmas, here are my top Kitchen gadgets for 2007.

Tefal Quick Cup

I really like the idea of this. It’s a kettle which gives you hot water in 3 seconds. Not only do you get a quick cup of <insert preferred hot beverage here> you also save up to 60% of the energy a standard kettle would use! Guilt free coffee or tea! As long as you buy Fairtrade that is…

Available from Amazon.co.uk for <£60 (click on photo to get latest price)

Tefal Quick Cup

KitchenAid Artisan KSM150

I love Kitchen Aid products, they’re pricey but they have excellent build quality and will last you ages. Don’t fall for the false economy of buying a cheaper mixer which will only last a year or so! I’d have it in Blue as below to match my Kitchen Aid Blender.

Available in lots of colours from Amazon.co.uk for <£325 (click on photo to get latest price)

Kitchen Aid Mixer

Kenwood kMix

Okay, I realise some people don’t like the “retro” styling of the Kitchen Aid range so here’s your alternative, the STUNNING Kenwood kMix.

Available in a few colours from Amazon.co.uk for <£300 (click on photo to get latest price)

Kenwood kMix

Dualit Hand Mixer

So, if the two mixers above are a bit out of your price range have a look at this beauty. I don’t know what it is about this but I love the way it looks. Good brand, rugged design, perfect for the active cook.

Available in a few colours from Amazon.co.uk for <£45 (click on photo to get latest price)

Dualit Mixer in Black

Voodoo Knife Set

Okay, enough of the mixers! This one is pure fun. If you’re a passionate cook who likes to throw things against the wall in fury every now and again (don’t we all) then you’ll love this. Put your knife away by plunging it into the unfortunate Voodoo doll. Great!

Available from Amazon.co.uk for <£50 (click on photo to get latest price)

Voodoo Knife Stand

Jamie Oliver Flavour Shaker v2

If you’re a Jamie fan and haven’t got one of these yet then now is the time to take the plunge. If you buy from Amazon at the moment you get a free Jamie DVD and the red one is <£10! If you’ve no idea what these are they’re basically a modern take on the pestle & mortar. Just “bung” the ingredients in the Flavour Shaker and give it a vigorous shake to “muller” the ingredients together, “delish” (thanks to Jamie for the words…).

Available in 5 colours from Amazon.co.uk for ~£10 (click on photo to get latest price)

Shaker Maker

Kitchen Craft Pig Crumb Pet Novelty Tabletop Vacuum Cleaner

Yes! I have one of these (the Cow if you must know). In some restaurants between courses the waiter/waitress comes to your table with some sort of brush/napkin contraption to brush away the crumbs you’ve managed to spread everywhere. I think this would be far more fun, a mini table vacuum cleaner in the shape of an animal! You can choose from a dog, pig, cow, cat, black sheep, white sheep, elephant, duck and… erm… Rubbish Truck!

Available from Amazon.co.uk for <£6 (click on photo to get latest price)

Cow Vacuum

I hope this gives you a few ideas although it’s probably a bit to late to order in time for Xmas unless you choose Next Day delivery so get shopping!
