- The Stem Gem: fun to say and to use, this little beauty uses its claws to husk the stem right off the strawberry! Perfect for cleaning up berries for your little ones or for recipes for filled berries! For example, prep your berries for these no bake, simple and delicious strawberry cheesecake bites. Another “recipe” I really loved was just piping some Nutella on a strawberry half. Sooooo good. Click on the gem to get straight to putting this little baby in your Amazon cart (I’ve done this for the all the products, so just click and shop your way to happiness!).
2. The OXO Tot Grape Cutter:
This tool is a little tricky to clean, but it makes quick work of cutting your grapes from spherical choking hazards into neat little wedges that won’t lodge in your kid’s gullet.
All you do is stick a grape in the tube, press down on the top and out pops your perfectly carved fruit. Getting the grape to cut instead of smash is a bit harder with older, sad grapes, but keep in mind that this is an act of love and worth every struggle.
3. Cookie Dough Scoop:
I don’t own this Oxo brand cookie scoop, but I’ve always been happy with every Oxo product I’ve tried. Cookie scoops allow you to move closer to the dream of being that person whose cookies come out the same size. I say move closer because, if you’re like me, you’ll still manage to screw it up. However, it’s a handy little tool. Tip: it works best with stiffer, colder cookie dough.
4. Scrubbing Brush: Okay, Oxo, seriously. You have a monopoly. This was my husband’s find. He likes a clean kitchen (he seriously married the wrong woman).
This ‘wand’ offers scrubbing power with a built in soap dispenser. You just press a button for a stream of dish soap. The scrubber is efficient without being damaging. Bonus: no unsightly detergent bottle hogging up the counter.
I know four is not a sexy number, but four is what I’ve got to offer. These are the products we use all the time that make a difference in our kitchen. What products do you have that make you a wonder-mom?
