Kitchen Gadgets - Charles Viancin Silicone Lids and Seals

These Charles Viancin silicon sealing lids - in hibiscus, lily pad, or sunflower design - are ingenious! With one simple press down on top of a bowl or container, the silicone lid seals completely shut. Comes in small, medium and large and is incredibly useful as a cover while heating in the microwave, or sealing a bowl or container for storing in the fridge.

A small size is available to seal coffee cups, or glasses - perfect for outdoor entertaining this summer, when you don't want any (ahem...uninvited) guests arriving in the drinks! Yes, mosquitoes and flies, I mean you! Also a simple little topper for heating up coffee, tea or water in the microwave.

Charles Viancin is selling out in the kitchen store where I work - get your hands on these amazingly designed products. They make ideal gifts, too.

Mastrad Top Chips Maker and Slicer - Microwave Potato Chip Maker

The Mastrad chips maker makes delicious homemade potato chips right in your microwave oven! People are raving about this new slice root vegetables like sweet potatoes or regular potatoes, and in just a few minutes you have delicious, crispy homemade chips!

I like this set in particular, because it comes with a simple mandolin-type slicer, too, so you're getting 2 gadgets for the price of one! Mastrad also sells a set of 2 potato chip makers -- two trays that you use in the microwave. The trays are made of a durable, high-quality silicone, so your chips will crisp up, but won't stick to the tray.

Do you have a Mastrad potato chip maker? If so, please leave a comment and tell us how you use yours!
