Gadgets & Goodies

I like to share neat things I find along the way which I use to prepare my recipes, or which help me to organize my kitchen.  You'll find details on some right within the recipes when they have been especially helpful to making that dish.  I've also compiled a list here, by type so that you can look them up yourself and see whether they are right for you.

Kitchen Tools

Joseph Joseph Potato Masher
An ordinary potato masher does a perfectly respectable job for most recipes, but as a treat I bought myself this masher from Amazon.  When I last checked, it was also available from in Denmark, which has a whole assortment of great kitchen equipment at very reasonable prices.  The spring action and the special grooves help to make great mashed potatos (whether you want them rustic or smooth) with very little effort.  You don't need it, but if you get it, you won't know how you managed without it.

Pots, Pans, and Bakeware

Emile Henry Ceramic Pot, 1.8 Liters
Emile Henry products are more of an investment than a purchase.  They're the kind of cookware you want to buy when you really want to give yourself a treat.  You can find a whole selection of Emile Henry products on Amazon and you can buy it locally in Denmark from

Handy Apps

Kitchen Pro by Forward Leap, LLC is my not-so-secret weapon for conversions.  With a large database of ingredients to choose from it is the most useful tool when converting from volume (cups) to weight (grams).  It saves loads of time measuring ingredients then placing them on the scale to confirm the weight matches, or vice versa.  It has loads of other helpful features.  It works on iPhones and iPods.  You can find it at the mac App store.
