Tool, Gadget or Gizmo?

Well designed, classic toolYesterday  I caught myself watching on of those Thanksgiving weekend television show marathons one of my favorite television channel= Food TV. The featured show for the evening was, “Gotta Get IT” The premise of this show is the opportunity to feature new kitchen gadgets, gizmos and tools.  

  • Laughing, when they tried to demonstrate a turned crank wheat grass juicer
  • Perplexed , when they presented an egg blender that scrambled eggs in their shells?
  • Aghast, when a chef from a well known culinary institute showed how a re-adapted potato ricer could be use to extrude ice cream and then suggested that it might be used to make “pasta” out of polenta
  • Affirmed, when my favorite lemon zester was presented as an ingenious tool favored by many accomplished cooks

Which lead me to consider the differences between what I consider to be a useful tool, a gadget or auxiliary gixmet in my studio.= the theme of my next few posts.
