Tool Takedown Poll: Which Gadgets Do You Prefer?

by in Shows, January 4th, 2014

The Kitchen's Tool TakedownThe New Year brings with it the chance for fresh starts and clean slates, and in the spirit of new beginnings, The Kitchen‘s co-hosts set out to help you declutter your kitchen once and for all by ridding it of nonessential gadgets. On the series premiere this morning, Jeff, Geoffrey, Katie, Sunny and Marcela kicked off the show’s first-ever Tool Takedown, a segment dedicated to finding out which of those specialized tools, like strawberry hullers and egg yolk separators are in fact more efficient than traditional, everyday items you likely already have on hand, like a simple knife.

Although the worth of each gadget comes down to personal preference, the group found after a few rounds of friendly competition that while all of the tasks can be done with paring or chef’s knives — or by hand — the dedicated tools may be nice to have if you want to involve kids in the cooking or if you don’t mind how neatly the job gets done.

FN Dish wants to know which tools you prefer. Are you hooked on specialized gadgets like strawberry hullers and avocado cubers, or do you rely on everyday knives to get the job done? Vote in the poll below to tell us which tools you use.

Don’t miss an all-new episode of The Kitchen on Saturday, Jan. 11 at 11am/10c.

    Too many people. Too much Jeff M. and not enough of the others. I have to force myself to keep paying attention. Mom says the show is worthless cuz who wants to hear about a candle and it's too much like making leftovers.

    This show is only a weak, pathetic attempt to come up with something to replace Paula Deen's show. I won't watch it again. Too much talk, too many hosts and too little cooking!

  7. Phyllis says:

    Woulde love to order the Lotus Candle – thought it was to be on the site???

  8. Julie says:

    Could be in interesting, but poor production values made it difficult. The hosts are good, but talk over themselves too much, making it hard to get comments. Poor sound/video are also a problem. Also seemed like they were shouting.
    The candle was fun. Sunny's recipe was my favorite. Jeffrey seemed somewhat out of place.

    I gave it a chance – won't watch "The Kitchen" again.

      Same here, but I only made it through the first half hour. Absolutely no chemistry among the players. Huge waste of programming.

    Way too many people talking at once and talking over one another! Makes it appear as though they are all competing for attention!
