Make Room In Your Kitchen For These Gadgets

September 27, 2015

As seen this month in the ‘Get This Gadget’ feature in FEAST Magazine, Culinary Center of Kansas City ‘Main Dish’ Laura Laiben reviews some gadgets from our Kitchen Shop that we think are pretty darn nifty. See if you agree…

Microplane has done it again. They have created a cutting utensil, the Microplane Spiral Cutter, that actually maintains an edge, primarily because the blades are made of surgical grade stainless steel. This time it’s for the popular spiral cuts of vegetables that are perfect for veggie pastas and salads.  We believe that this little baby is worth the drawer space.

Kolder Salad Dressing MixerThe Kolder Salad Dressing Mixer is an item that we recommend over and over here at The Culinary Center of Kansas City as it doubles as a mini cooking classes on various styles of vinaigrette. 

Stamped on the sides of this clear shaker bottle are the measurements for Honey Mustard Dressing, Greek Dressing, Caesar and more.  Just fill with the identified ingredients to the lines indicated, then shake.  The next time around substitute another variety of oil, vinegar, citrus juice, etc. and make it your own. 

Voila!  A cooking class in a bottle!  



  1. Love the microplane tool. Do you have a link to a video to show how it works?
