This winter has been brutal. Freezing temperatures, weekly snowstorms, consecutive snow days…enough is enough!  The first peaks of springtime green are always a welcome sight, but after this winter you might not want to wait for Mother Nature to take her sweet time.  Take matters into your own hands and bring springtime into your kitchen with some of these fresh appliances and sets.

Twist Silicone 2-in-1 Whisk by Joseph: Still using a wire whisk?  Well, grab a silicone one and welcome to the 21st century!  This whisk easily adjusts from balloon whisk to flat whisk with the flick of the wrist, and the silicone is heat-resistant up to 520 degrees F.  As with all silicone kitchen products, it’s dishwasher safe, thank goodness!

Lime juice for everyone!

Zip Strip Herb Stripper by Chef’n: Cooking with fresh herbs as opposed to dried yields noticeable differences, and this herb stripper makes using fresh herbs a lot easier.  It works great for leafy herbs, has multiple stripping options, and the bowl catches and measures the herbs.  Try it once and you’ll be hooked!

Chore I Can Dish Rack in Green: Even if you have a dishwasher, you’re still going to have to hand-wash from time to time, and that also means you’re going to have to dry.  This dish rack makes drying easy. Just stack the dishes and the little spout will drain into the sink, so you won’t have to wipe up puddles. Well, except for the puddles kiddies and pets make of course.

Savor It for Later Wine Stopper: Just in case something weird happens and you don’t finish a bottle of wine, you should probably have a wine stopper on hand.  And why have a plain boring wine stopper?  This silicone one is adorable and will maybe even inspire you to put some fruit on your head and dance around like the Chiquita Banana lady.

Compact Herb Chopper: Instead of pulling out the big cutting board and knife to chop fresh herbs, grab this all in one herb chopping tool.  You can chop the herbs right on top of the chopper’s case, and the slightly curved design makes sure nothing is lost to spillage.  Oh and it is also great for chopping chocolate!
