While growing our family over the last several years, I’ve tried a lot of kitchen tools… From budget paring knives to high-end deli slicers. I can tell you, there’s nothing that compares to a kitchen tool that was made specifically for its application—and this is exactly what KitchenIQ has done with their products.
When we first got married, I didn’t know much at all about cooking. We ate a lot of freezer meals and other easy stuff. My husband loves to tell the story about how I even burned water once (which actually happened to be the fault of the stove itself… I know, I know… But the burner did spontaneously combust into flame—since it was OLD—and result in the entire oven being dragged out to the curb. Lol).
Don’t even get me started on how meticulous I used to be when I DID start (really) cooking. With things as simple as cutting chicken into cubes, I would spend nearly an hour getting it just right. We spent some time living with my husband’s aunt (who is really like a second mom to us both) when we were expecting our first child, and thankfully, she helped me get out of that mode and start actually COOKING, but man was it painfully tedious while I figured it out. Haha. I was a serious CASE.
So long story short, when KitchenIQ asked us to test out a few of their amazing products with some friends, I couldn’t wait. Cause these kitchen tools are the real deal, folks.
I’ve always had issues with veggie prep. It can be so monotonous and challenging (clean properly, skin and chop without slicing a finger off), and involves so many tools. But KitchenIQ has it figured out. Their 3-in-1 potato tool has a scrub brush, straight edge peeler, and paring knife all in one sleek package, with amazing non-stick stainless steel coated blades on the peeler and knife. This thing makes veggie prep EASY.
Don’t even get me started on the Better Zester. Aptly named, this kitchen tool is everything every zester wants to be. Stainless steel v-etched zester blade, “fresh zest” container with measurements (yes, measurements! So now you don’t have to dirty yet ANOTHER container figuring out if you’ve zested enough yet), and non-stick coating (that’s food approved!) for silky-smooth zesting and way easy clean up. We loved that KitchenIQ gave us enough of these to hand out to all our party guests (and they loved it, too)!
Noticing a trend here? Easier. Smarter.
Our favorite by far, though, was the Edge Grip Knife Sharpener. There’s a reason this kitchen tool is a bestseller on Amazon—there’s simply nothing like it. Our guests agreed that it can take even a crappy budget knife and make it a thing of smooth-slicing beauty.
This unique design gives two levels of sharpening in one compact package—straight edge double-beveled knives can either be given an extremely quick sharpen with just a few pulls through carbide blades in the coarse slot, or a smooth finish with the ceramic rods in the fine slots. And all of this can be done right on your kitchen counter, thanks to the Edge Grip Bottom! Another brilliant design we were all thrilled to use.
Hubby especially loves testing sharp knives on things that would normally be really hard to cut, so I think he’s my best tester. Haha. Let me tell you, this Edge Grip Knife Sharpener is legit.
You can buy any of these products on Kitchen IQ’s website or on Amazon.com. They’re just a few in the amazing lineup KitchenIQ has to offer.
