Sitting here in the waiting room at the dentist office writing my first blog post. Hmmm....what should I call my blog? What should it be about? Well, I know you all have been there and done that, so onward.
What does a new useful kitchen gadget and a new unique piece of jewelry have in common? Both get my adrenaline pumping like a kid in a toy store!!
So where do I begin? Should I start with the Magnetic Measuring Spoons, the Pigtail Food Flipper, or the cupboard door scrap trap? and the winner is......"the cupboard door scrap trap!! We've all seen Rachel Ray's garbage bowl and asked ourselves "who would
buy that, it's just a bowl? (I almost bought one.) The practice however, of a garbage bowl is very efficient and practical when working in the kitchen, so I can see how it caught on.
My workspace is somewhat limited and the addition of another bowl for trash to my counter wasn't ideal. So straight from the internet and into my kitchen arrived the
Kitchen Art Scrap Trap Bin and Scraper.
This plastic bin hangs on the top of your cupboard door or drawer. I use it sometimes right below my cutting board and just scrape everything right into it off my board. But it lives most of the time on my corner turntable cupboard door. It has come in quite
handy. The bin collects scraps when prepping meals or paper & plastic trash. The key is to place the bin within arm's lengths to where you work in your kitchen so it's always there for you. (just like chocolate)
When it's full you dump it, rinse it, and hang it back on. No more walking to the trash can or having to open a door to get to the trash can or taking up precious counter space with a garbage bowl. (sorry Rachel)
What's up next? Magnetic measuring spoons or the pigtail food flipper? Does anyone really care?
