Shaker and Apple Strudel
Sift and Shake, Shake, Shake with RSVP

We have recently tested some new sifting gadgets, and are sharing news of our favorites. Each is priced at $20 or less, and saves time.

Kalorik Egg Cooker 2
The Kalorik Egg Cooker
Who needed an egg cooker? Not us! It was not even on our top 50 wish list of kitchen tools. So what happened? We went on vacation with a family member who talked incessantly (I mean that in a good way!) about the “wonderful” egg cooker he had at home. Each morning when he prepared his vacation breakfast - first boiling water, then timing the eggs and then struggling to evenly peel them, he would mention his “no fail” egg cooker, and why we should have one. We were tempted and knew that we had to try this tool at the very least to humor him, so we contacted Kalorik (his recommended brand) and very skeptically tested their 7-egg model. Results? To our complete surprise…EGGcellent! Confession here: We have a lack of patience and admit to being terrible egg peelers. In fact, we usually enlist our husband to do this task. Not any longer. The Kalorik egg cooker appliance makes peeling eggs a cinch.

Simply add desired number of eggs (up to 7) to the appliance. Punch a teeny tiny little hole at the top of each egg (piercing tool supplied); Fill the base with water. Cover, plug in and let steam from 7-15 minutes. When the eggs are ready, a buzzer sounds. Put eggs in an ice bath (optional) to stop cooking, and then peel. The peel comes off easily, quickly and perfectly. The unit is easy to clean, but we do wish that it was dishwasher safe. Highly recommended. EGGceptional tool. The model we tested, #EK 35321 is affordably priced at $18.35 on Amazon. Click Here to buy.

  • Cooks up to 7 eggs at the same time
  • Stainless steel heating plate and lid
  • End of cooking signal
  • On/off switch with light
  • Egg poacher for 4 eggs
  • Small enough to store in most cabinets
  • Ideal for hard boiling and soft boiling up to 7 eggs, and poaches 2 eggs

Mix it up!  Two Affordable Stand Mixers 
Did you know that the #1 small appliance gift for newlyweds is a stand mixer? However, not all gifters or bridal couples can afford the ultra deluxe models, and not all cooks have the need for a luxury stand mixer. So we went on a search for affordable models that we think can step in. As we know, ideally, kosher homes actually need 2 appliances for everyday usage – one for dairy and one for meat. (And, possibly even a third one for Passover). Basic economics make it even more essential to find alternate budget priced mixers. We found 2 very appealing candidates.


Hamilton Beach Stand Mixer

Hamilton Beach Stand Mixer cropped

The new powerful  Hamilton Beach 63392 stand mixer is a versatile appliance, effortlessly mixing and kneading dough, cake batters and whipping eggs. meringues and cream. The powerful 300-watt motor can handle the thickest of ingredients, including our homemade oatmeal raisin, pecan, chocolate chip cookies. We didn’t even have to scrape the bowl at the end. The unique planetary mixing action rotates the single oversized beater around the entire bowl, for even and complete mixing.
Seven speeds lets you go from a slow stir to a fast whirr, with simple and easy control of each one. Nonslip feet keep the mixer still while in use, and the detachable splatter shield prevents drops and spills and helps prevent “flying flour”. Attachments include a flat beater, dough hook and whisk. All attachments, as well as the stainless steel 4-quart mixing bowl, are dishwasher safe.

We are impressed! We found the Hamilton Beach stand mixer just as efficient, easy to use and stylish as our classic luxury artisan mixer. Even a seasoned baker will like this model. Since many kosher homes need two mixers, this would be a great choice. And yes, we love the price. We found it online for $99 — including free shipping. A second bowl can be ordered for $44. This is an affordable winner! This Hamilton Beach stand mixer can be purchased at stores such as Target, Wal-Mart, and online at Amazon.

• Superior mixing comparable to more expensive stand mixers 
• Complete bowl coverage 
• Powerful 300 watt motor 
• Includes flat beater, whisk, and dough hook 
• 4 quart capacity stainless steel bowl with handle
• Includes splatter shield 
• 7 speeds, • 14.5 lbs.

Dash Stand Mixer
On our search for affordable mixers, we came across the potable, lightweight Dash Everyday Stand Mixer which we found online for $39.99.

Dash colorful mixers 6

The Dash Mixer offers six preset speeds ranging from gentle mixing to high-speed whipping, and also includes dough hooks and a 3-quart stainless steel mixing bowl.

The company does not yet offer an extra bowl for purchase.

 Lekue microwavecorn cooker
Lékué Microwave Corn Cooker (uncovered)

The Lékué microwave corn popper and the Lékué microwave rice cooker have become time saving, easy care, and indispensible kitchen helpers. We use both at least once weekly. So, when we had the opportunity to try the new Lékué Corn cooker, we were interested!

Lekue corn cooker coveredThis little tool is another winner. We simply shucked and cleaned our corn on the cob, put 2 in the cooker, and placed the gadget in the microwave for 5 minutes. So simple, so delicious. The corn steamed itself. The built in corn holders made it quite easy to pick up the steamy hot corn, and allowed us to shake on the seasoning and butter while the corn was still too hot to touch.
Although summer is a perfect time for grilling corn, this microwave set from Lékué provides an even easier, faster way to enjoy corn on the cob. It cooks two ears of corn in just five minutes!

  • Includes four knobs to flip corn for easily distributing butter or seasoning
  • Steam outlet ensures crisp, fresh-tasting results
  • Corn can be rotated using knobs to evenly add flavor
  • Dishwasher safe for easy cleanup
  • BPA-free
