Gotta Have It! You’re so Sili Edition

Turn your kitchen into a fun place to create the meals you enjoy with friends and family with some of my tried & true gadgets.

Double-Edged Mandoline Thin Slicer

This handy mandoline slicer easily produces twice the thin slices (just 1.5mm thick) in half the time, thanks to the double-edged ultra-sharp ceramic blade. Safe – no blades to switch out. Perfect for cucumber salad or any recipes calling for thinly sliced vegetables or fruits. The advanced ceramic blade stays sharp ten times longer than steel blades, and it will not alter the taste or smell of foods being sliced. Dishwasher safe. $19.95

Sili Stainless Steel & Silicone Muddler

This silicone/stainless steel muddler is a must have for any drink cart or home bar. This stylish, yet durable tool will stand up to a lifetime of drink making. The silicone head will not split or splinter nor does it absorb the odor of any “muddled” ingredients, like mint leaves, sugar and lime wedges – THINK MOJITO! Dishwasher safe. $13.00

Sili Separator

This makes it so easy to remove the fat for your sauces. Slowly pour drippings through silicone strainer lid into glass jar.  Fat will rise to top, leaving the stock base to settle at bottom.  Liquid easily pours from bottom mounted spout until only the fat remains in jar. Silicone lid is heat safe to 600 degrees.  4 cup capacity. $20.00

Shin Bistro Milk Frother
