Kimberly's Kitchen Favs

As we're closing out Foodie February, I wanted to share a few of my new favorite kitchen gadgets. Sometimes (and I'm only slightly ashamed to admit this), I wander the gadget section at Bed, Bath & Beyond for hours. I want all those gadgets. I don't know what they do, but I want them. Do you ever get that way?

These are my new favorite kitchen toys.

From a chef friend of mine - "It's great for quick salads or slicing veggies for a sandwich. It's very light weight, very sharp, holds its edge and hardly ever needs sharpening." Plus, it's pretty!

2. The Nuvem - or Round wire bread basket from Alessi

It's made of bundled - and then crushed - aluminum wire. And I can't get enough of it!

3. Remember my pot de créme experiment? I shared that I'm also slightly obsessed with making mini desserts (and well, mini dishes) of any kind, so of course you have to have ramekins. Loving this one...

Emile Henry Stackable Ramekin in Vert
It comes in Citron, Blanc, Nougat, Cerise, Figue, Sky, Azur, Black, Slate, and Sand. [Noticing a color fascination yet? :)]

4. Todd English Hard Anodized With Thermolon Frypans

Almost all my pans are from Todd English's HSN GreenPan Collection. They've never disappointed me. You can usually see them in my cooking photos. They're very sturdy, clean brilliantly and cook evenly. (My dad even cooks with these at their house, and he can ruin any pan. So far, these have lasted.)

5. Trivets or hot pads are a fun splash of color on my otherwise boring brown table. I really love these from Rebecca's Treasury.

So what are your favorite kitchen gadgets? What can you not live without when you're cooking or baking?
