Last week Chicago hosted the annual International Home and Housewares Show at McCormick Place. While there were many products that would be a great addition to any household, one trend that intrigued me was stress less products.
These stress less products fill two different needs. The products are easier to use with minimal effort. For example, a person who might be older could have difficulty maneuvering a pepper mill efficiently. The Trudeau Stress Less Enora Pepper and Salt Mills are a perfect example.
The Stress Less mill is four times easier to operate than a regular mill. With simply the push of your finger, you can grind pepper and salt to perfection. Designed with ergonomic and lightweight technologies, the Stress Less line is not only easy to use but stylish in your kitchen. The Stress Less Enora Pepper and Salt Mills retail for approximately $34.99.
The other aspect of stress less gadgets related to baking. Since I like to get my kids into the kitchen cooking and baking with me, I prefer products that work well with little hands but get the job done well. Two items that will be added to my kitchen are the flex measuring beaker and the spoon spatulas.
The flex measuring beaker is perfect for adding liquids or solids to a recipe. If you have ever asked a child to pour liquids into your mixing bowl, the mess left behind can be great. The flexible shape and the textured outside work would help to pour efficiently. A flex measuring beaker retails for approximately $14.99.
Since no parent wants to clean extra counter-top mess, the spoon spatulas, with the raised pad, help reduce the mess of food preparation. The most intriguing feature to this gadget is that the tool can be used from both ends. The dual functionality makes scooping and spreading a breeze. The spoon spatulas retail between $12.99 and $14.99 depending on size.
What type of gadget would you like to purchase? Do you have an idea that would simplify your cooking and baking needs?
