The 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.
