Kitchen Gadget Reviews

As I mentioned in a previous post, this 1 new cupcake a week challenge gave me the excuse to buy more kitchen gadgets. Here's a review after using them.

Sunbeam Cupcake Maker-AMAZING. makes 6 full size cupcakes (not like the other little bakers that make the minis) and bakes them in 10 min. No need to wait for the oven to preheat, which is a GIANT pain at my place. The oven is not fast at all. It doesn't heat up the house, so perfect for summer baking. You can use boxed recipes or from scratch. If you use a cupcake liner there is NO clean up, but if you decide to not use a liner it's non-stick :) always a plus. The one little tiny thing i don't like, is taking the cakes out. You kinda have to figure out what works for you and pop them out. but seriously. it's the cupcake's answer to a George Foreman Grill.

Chicago Metallic Baking Essentials Cupcake/Batter Dispenser-Once again, AMAZING. I will be using this for every batch I make. AND I'm going to make perfect pancakes every time now :) Also it's dishwasher safe-SCORE!

Cup-a-cake Cupcake Holder-If you have kids, they will love you for these. You can turn them upside-down and the cupcake sits perfectly still. Make some cupcakes and be able to throw one into your loved ones lunch box as an extra special surprise. Dishwasher safe as well :)

Sounds like I should purchase every single one of these things... I just saw the batter dispenser the other day and knew that would be a must have.... drooling over all of it!
