OLD SCHOOL COOKING GADGETS THAT EVERY COOK SHOULD HAVE!

As the Huffington Post notes, there are many old-fashioned kitchen gadgets still on the market, with some retailers even catering primarily or exclusively to people who prefer low-tech tools that run on elbow grease instead of electricity. Here are just a few:

1- The Natural Peanut Butter Mixer

Hate it when your natural peanut butter separates into weird gelatinous butter/oil compounds? Me too. This little tool screws onto your standard jars and mixes it up in no time. Simple, cheap, and easy. A great solution that won’t bend a cheap spoon and makes the food you already have in the house more appealing, and dare I say, fun?

2- The Beginner’s Home Canning Kit

You don’t need a three-acre garden to can your own own preserves. You can spent twenty dollars at the farmers market and can all the pasta sauce you could eat in a year. This kit from Ball includes everything you need to get started with a water bath canning operation in your apartment. And hey, homemade jams and jellies with a nice ribbon make a great gift for the upcoming holidays… (hint hint)

3- Cast Iron Waffle Maker

You can buy this cast iron from Amazon
Nothing tastes as good as home-cooked meals in cast iron, and that goes for waffles, as well. This low-tech alternative to the plug in beast that you hate cleaning makes great breakfasts. It also inspires you to stay in and cook on the weekends, which means you’ll have a home pantry stocked with healthy organic flour, eggs, sugar and butter. Why not enjoy them the old fashioned way?

A couple of others to try: Pie birds, which are tiny bird-shaped gadgets you place on the center of hot pies to regulate steam and prevent the pie filling from running out, and a butter churn, which you can use to make your very own homemade butter free of chemicals and preservatives.

We never would have thought about using some of these old-fashioned cooking gadgets in our day-to-day lives, because who can argue with how easy and efficient modern technology is? However, this list has us thinking a little differently, and now we’re excited to try some of these tools and see what cooking was like just a few decades ago!
