5 Greet-worthy tools from Gefu
It’s amazing how one small change can change the game. Take Gefu for example. For nearly 70 years, they have taken everyday products and made minor, but kitchen-life altering adjustments, which makes Gefu a brand that’s full of surprises. From spiral julienne slicers to ceramic peelers, these tiny tweaks will add a new spin to the way you prepare and enjoy your food. That’s something we can really get behind!
Sounds a tad Italian doesn’t it? Well, that’s because it’s doing for vegetables what pasta did for the world. Whether you’re vegan, veggie or just generally health conscious, the Spirelli will turn your cooking style on it’s head. Stir fries become effortless, vegetable noodle pastas; carb free and squiggly garnishing – a lot more fun. Simply rotate the oblong veg of your choice through the Spirelli and Luigi is your uncle. To clean, just rinse. What could be more exciting?
Violino Gourmet Mandoline Slicer
No it’s not an orchestral accompaniment, but we bet you’ll hear a choir of angels when the Violino slicer gets put to use. Flat, even slices for delicious burgers, julienne strips for roastings or potato chips and perfect tiny cubes for salads and stuffings. Not only is it super duper time saving, but you’ll be able to chop, slice and dice for years to come with these high quality Japanese steel blades. And all this in one overachiever of a product.
Remember when mum roped you in to peel potatoes? Back then it was practically a punishment having to slave away with blunt, hacking tools. If only mum had kept a ceramic Y-peeler on hand. The charm lies in the ceramic blade whose strength is second only to diamonds. Yes, diamonds, guys! So our Y-peeler over here stays sharp plus it’s non-reactive so freshly peeled veg stay looking fresh, not brown.Yay. Yippee. Y-peeler. All good things start with Y.
Chopping is a chore, right? Not anymore. Don’t you wish you’d had one of these Tari Slicers the last time you offered to make dessert for the family picnic? Fruit salads become a breeze and sautéed mushrooms are so quick you don’t even have time to get bored chopping, and Caprese salad? Just a few minutes away. Here’s the clincher, the Tari slicer is safe and easy so the kids can help too. Chuffed? We certainly are.
Rippled Braai Tongs
Since it’s basically our national sport, it’s important to have the right tools. These handy tongs are angled, to turn and serve better, and rippled to grip hard-to-hold food more easily. Strong stainless steel and a balanced spring force make them comfortable to hold and use, revolutionising your braaing experience.
Those are our favourites, what tools are you using to jazz up your time in the kitchen and around the braai?
