January 22 – Bean slicer

Jan 22


Today I’m giving away this bean slicer or stringer…  I know, why would I possess one of these.  I come by my fascination with kitchen tools from my Dad.  Unlike my mother, who could make a month’s worth of meals with a wooden spoon and a paring knife, my father was a gadget guy.  We had a whole cupboard dedicated to his impulse kitchen purchases including a bun warmer, first generation food processor, and the bright orange veggie slicer that he bought off the tv one night after too many scotches (I still have that one, watch this space).  I bought this tool in a weak moment many years ago while shopping with a true foodie and it has sat in a drawer along with my olive pitter, strawberry grabber, egg poker, and many other single purpose items.  Unlike the rest of them though, this guy has never been used.  I’m going to offer it to my vegetarian sister (who will scoff at it, no doubt) and then put it in the Goodwill box.

I like my beans whole.


About todayigaveaway

I'm trying to make more space in my life so I'm getting rid of stuff. All the things that I've been hanging on to that might have some utility for someone else, if no longer for me. I'm going to try to give something away every day.

    I understand! I have tons of gadgets and a very small kitchen! I’m finally starting to let stuff go: waffle maker (I can use a pan and have pancakes), ice cream maker (at the neighbours can borrow it anytime), sandwich maker, cookie cutters (just turn a glass over and use that), cake decorating sets (I don’t even like cake) and I don’t even remember what else! It’s really hard to part with things. I have these baker bowl sets that you can make bowls out of with food that I can’t part with only because I’ve never used them.
