All the tools you need to make raw food meals and desserts.
The Alaska dessert bowl is footed and features paneled sides for a classic look.
Modern ice-cream makers are inexpensive and easy to use (no hand-cranking, ice, or rock salt required.) The canister, which holds a freezing agent, must be placed in the freezer for at least eight hours before using. I recommend the Cuisinart brand. You can purchase an extra bowl (or even two!) if you want to produce different flavors of ice cream in a row.
An ice-cream scoop with a trigger handle releases the ice cream deftly.
A blender is an electric appliance that purées and liquefies. There are several good, basic blenders; I like the KitchenAid KSB560.
The Fiskars knife sharpener features a patented ceramic wheel to effectively and easily sharpen knives at an exact 30-degree angle. The sharpener is built for safety as well, with a built-in hand guard and non-slip feet. It is covered by a lifetime warranty.
This hardwood block stores up to eight kitchen knives, a sharpening steel, and kitchen scissors within reach on the counter while protecting knife edges from the nicking they would suffer in a drawer.
Kyocera's ceramic mandoline makes paper thin slices of onions, cucucumbers, beets, cabbage, and other vegetables. With a turn of the dial you can adjust your thickness from .5 mm to 3 mm. The vegetables glide effortlessly across the ceramic blade for perfect slices every time.
As you pour into this measuring cup you don't have to scrunch down to eye level, or gingerly lift the cup to see if you've got the right amount. An angled inner rim with markings allows you to read the increments as you look down from the top.
A mandoline is a hand-operated utensil with a variety of blades for slicing and julienning fruits and vegetables uniformly.
In addition to scooping out melon, a melon baller will remove the seeds and pith from apple and pear halves.
Also called a sprout bag or nut-milk bag, a mesh bag is more effective than a strainer for extracting milk from blended nut mixtures.
A miniature muffin pan holds 24 tiny cupcakes, each about 1 ½ inches in diameter.
Includes one each: 2-1/2 quart, 3-1/2 quart and 4-1/2 quart bowls.
This 500-watt, 5-cup capacity blender is surprisingly powerful--and the price is right!
