Girl Friday Harrow has been on the search for gadgets to not only help you with your slicing and dicing tasks but also to make sure that you won't be needing to get out the first aid box when preparing dinner. Check out my three favourite gadgets to assist you with your vegetable preparation.
Do you often feel like you need an extra pair of hands when slicing tomatoes? Do you wish that your tomato slices were a little more uniform in thickness?
What you need is the Oyang Food Slicer! This nifty little gadget grabs hold of your tomato and lets you produce perfectly sized slices every time. Simply trap the tomato between the slicer's jaws, place it on a flat surface, and use a knife to slice the fruit through the dividers. The slicer has a comfortable oval, non-slip handle designed to prevent cuts and scrapes whilst making quick work of your slicing tasks.
Available from Amazon for less than a tenner including delivery.
AllLife Finger guard
If you don’t have the chopping skills of a top chef, you might want to invest a whole British pound in an AllLife Finger Guard to save any unnecessary trips to your local Accident and Emergency Department. Simply place your middle finger through the adjustable ring at the back of the guard and chop away! The stainless steel guard will ensure that you finish the vegetable preparation with the same number of fingers that you started with.
And it will cost you less than £1 including delivery from Amazon
Brieftons QuickPush Food Chopper
No longer will you have to chop and dice onions with all the crying, mess, odour, and
clean-up. Just slice an onion or any firm vegetable in two, set half on the stainless-steel blade, then close the top lid. Voila, your vegetable is now chopped, cut and stored easily for you.
This compact tool stands on non-slip feet that keeps it secure on the worktop or table. When the top lid is closed, the blade is protected and safely tucked away from a busy chef's hands. It comes with two super sharp interchangeable stainless steel blades for chopping and dicing your way to a professionally prepared meal.
The cleaning tool conveniently removes foodstuffs between the pusher teeth or blades and whilst hand washing is recommended for extending the life of the product, it is top rack dishwasher safe.
Convenient, compact and highly functional, this kitchen tool is a must-have to make food preparation so simple.
