I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for KitchenIQ. I received promotional items to thank me for my participation.
Being a food blogger you would think I own all the latest kitchen gadgets and chachkas but I don’t. Since we live in a townhouse I don’t have the luxury of a big kitchen and so all my kitchen appliances have to be small and practical with the ability to be used frequently. When I got the opportunity to work with Kitchen IQ, I jumped at the chance to try out a few new kitchen gadgets. So I invited family over to try out the products and we had a grand time zesting, peeling and sharpening.
Read: we. are. dorks.
My mom was able to get her knives sharpened with the Edge Grip Knife Sharpener – it’s nice to see a knife sharpener where klutzes like myself have no chance of slicing off fingers while they’re sharpening. The hold is easy to grip and the bottom prevents the sharpener from sliding around. As you can see in the photos, it has two slots for sharpening – fine and coarse – depending on the knife you need to sharpen.
I was super excited to see a zester and potato peeler. Here’s why: my old zester was a disaster waiting to happen. I swear every time I zested anything, I nearly zested one of my fingernails or you know, skin. It was getting super aggravating. The Better Zester has a long handle that helps you keep your hands away from danger and out of the food. And it stores all your zest inside a small compartment with measurements to boot!
I was excited for the potato peeler because I was subsisting off of an old “finger” peeler (basically it’s a mini peeler that attaches to your finger) I had picked up years ago from the outlets. It was an impulsive buy, one that I used for way too long until it turned dull and like the ancient zester, drove me crazy. The Potato Tool not only has a nice handle to grip while you’re peeling but at the bottom you can find a paring knife. Another great space saver. The scrub brush at the top makes cleaning potatoes convenient and easy.
