A few months ago, I published a couple of posts listing a bunch of funny kitchen utensils sold in New York. Then you discovered a little “keep your avocado fresh” tool coming with its little belt and a bagel slicer, among others. But as I often say “this is a never ending story”, so here are a few more, and I feel there will always be!
Let’s start the good way with these little brushes, one for potatoes, the other one for the veggies. Because, obviously, you should not mix apples and oranges!
And while accumulating shitty objects, please welcome the flower shaped saucepan lids! Essential and soooo tasteful, everyone will be able to choose his favorite! What a great gift idea!
This is not a secret, New Yorkers don’t cook. At all. They don’t even try to cut a piece of fruit by themselves. I guess that’s why they like strawberries that much, even though they will never eat nor touch the little-weird-green-thing-on-the-top-of-the-fruit! That explains these vital little stalk removers!
American are Kings of marketing and Lords of tricks, using Photoshop to fight the laws of gravity. I mean, please, this almost hollow spoon into the hands of a 2 y.o, on the packaging, looks like that:
But everybody knows in reality, it’s going to look more like that:
What. A. Joke.
In the top 3 of the worst fruit to keep fresh, dead heat with the avocado, please welcome the beloved banana. But I must admit this little thing looks like a really cute dolphin. Which, as everyone knows, is the most important argument when deciding or not to purchase a kitchen utensil!
And since we are talkin about bananas, why not to invest in a beautiful wooden banana hanger? (The fruit bowl is soooo 2015!)
Let’s now open a new chapter I will name “did you really think about using the same common kitchen tool for everything you idiot?”
And our first contestant is a coffee spoon, yes, but telescopic! (Oh, if it’s telescopic, consider I did not say anything!)
A knife? To cut a bagel? Are you crazy? Use my little bagel guillotine instead! #normalconversation #welcometonewyork
A non-curved knife? Even worst, a regular knife for your breakie grapefruit? You really did turn crazy didn’t you?
Again, are you serious? You really need to chill out about knives!
The patty maker, or the obligatory substitution to these weird things no one own anymore: hands!
And I close the chapter with the essential friend for all the oven users, the funny little spatula that’s going to help you pull the metal shelf out of the oven and… that’s it! For any other oven-related activity, thanks to use your regular oven glove (or go back to Bed, Bath and Beyond to look for something more specific!)
