Kitchen Gadgets - Chef'n Garlic Press with a (Screwy) Difference

A customer was telling us today at the kitchen shop where I work that the Chef'n Garlic Machine is her absolute favorite. It lets you store tons of freshly peeled garlic cloves in the tube, and then when it's time to press out some garlic - EASY! Just screw top down and out comes lovely thick threads of gorgeously fragrant fresh garlic. If you hate traditional garlic presses (and are too lazy to chop the stuff all the time) then this is just for you...Lazy freshly minced garlic - hurrah!

Kitchen Gadgets - Onion Savers - No More Stinky Onions in Baggies in the Fridge!

One of my real kitchen pet peeves is - "What on EARTH am I supposed to do with this half an onion??" Inevitably, I throw it into a baggie. And then you know what happens next - everything from the watermelon slices to the butter ends up with a certain onion-ish taste. Not terribly appetizing.

That's why these onion savers are true brilliance in my books! They seal up ultra tight, giving you lovely fresh onions inside, but no lingering odors to drift in the direction of any of the other culinary delights in your refrigerator!

Hurrah for the onion saver! Fantastic design, too.
