Are you a modern machine fan or do you prefer it the old fashioned way...by hand?
OK relax this is not a post about sex toys...that will be another day!
I have admired Nigella Lawson for years, although must admit that since she lost her wobbly bits I am not identifying as I once did. I have all her recipe books which I actually read. In one of my favourites, Kitchen, she lists her " Kitchen Gadget Hall of Shame." Everything from jam makers to super juicers were fired from her kitchen.
Totally understand these ridiculous fixations we all get for unnecessary kitchen gadgets - I once stayed up until 3am trolling the web for a second hand ice cream maker because I "NEEDED" it.
I have had everything from sausage makers (only used once because the experience was hideous and put me off sex for weeks!...what was I thinking, a sausage maker!!!) to thermal steamers not to mention the drawer full of once-used hand tools such as melon ballers, cherry pip removers, tomato peelers, and the list goes on.
In the end I could probably pick my top three which I absolutely could not live without - the three kitchen tools I would take to a desert island.
My top two are based on my ongoing love affair with lemons and limes.
My super zester which is used everyday. I am forever zesting lemons and limes over salads, cakes, fruit, gin and tonics...
