Yesterday I attended the summer preview for the fab kitchen goods/entertaining store and by the end, I was basically salivating and ready to hand over my wallet to buy everything I laid my eyes upon. What I love so much about Williams-Sonoma is that they really try to make cooking and baking something that is enjoyable and easy.
There were 5 gadgets in general that I went ga-ga for — they’re perfect for making your summer totally delicious and trouble-free.
1 Zoku Quick Pop Maker, $75
You may not believe in magic, but your mind will be changed when you see the Zoku in action. This instant popsicle maker has 3 molds to pour your fave fruit juices into, which then freeze into ice pops in only 7 minutes.
2 Vitamix 500 Professional Blender,Â (not available in Canadian stores yet — stay tuned for details!)
Ice cream, smoothies, or mikshakes? No matter what’s on the menu this summer, you’ll need a sweet blender like this to keep you cool in the summer heat with refreshing treats. With virtually any feature you can imagine, this blender is a top-of-the-line summer essential.
3 Margaritaville Explorer Cordless Frozen Concoction Maker, $440
Thanks to the yummy slushy drinks found everywhere at all-inclusive resorts, we all become boozers while on vacation (don’t deny it). Now you can bring that vacay laissez-faire attitude home with this amazing cordless frozen drink maker. Battery-operated, the Margaritaville Explorer can blend 60 delish drinks on one charge.
4 Fire Wire Flexible Grilling Skewers, $29 per set of 4
Now why didn’t we think of this one first? Summer grilling is made simple with these flexible skewers. Not only do they allow more room on the grill (and more food on the skewer itself), but they bend perfectly to let you marinade your food in a bowl post-skewering. Genius!
5 Magimix Vision Toaster, $430
Okay, so a toaster doesn’t exactly scream ‘summer’, but this is too cool not to mention. Never again will your toast burn if you have the Magimix Vision — with glass windows at the sides, you can now watch your bread get toasted to your liking (no more smells of burnt toast!). Plus, the glass panels flip down for easy cleaning inside.
