Modern kitchen appliances can take the place of a lot of different kitchen tools and de-clutter your kitchen. Zyliss and Mealthy are two companies with food prep tools to help make time in the kitchen easier, safer, effective and more pleasant.
Zyliss Knows Knives (and How to Sharpen Them)
Nifty Knife Sharpener:
My first really good knife was a gift from my mother. I used it so often that eventually, it couldn’t even cut a tomato. I had no idea how to sharpen it, and I destroyed it trying to use a steel.
If I’d had the Zyliss Control Sharpener and Knife Set ($29) I would still have that lovely knife. You don’t need any specific technique — just swipe through the first slot to sharpen it, and swipe through the second to hone off any rough edge.
A German stainless steel blade offers a consistent and uniform angle. The non-slip grip base keeps everything secure.
Bonus! a 4.5″ knife is included with the Zyliss Control Knife Sharpener. For more information visit https://www.zyliss.com/
Comfort Class Knives
Zyliss has a lot of different knives, but one that you might like to know about just launched recently, It’s called “Comfort.”
Zyliss claims that their Comfort knives stay sharper for longer. But of course, you will still want to sharpen them from time to time if you use them for food prep. Revive the blades with the Zyliss Control Sharpener when necessary.
What’s your Knife Style?
The Comfort collection knives have a high quality Japanese stainless steel blade with a taper ground edge. They are called “comfort” thanks to the soft touch easy to grip handle and patented touchpoints that let even a novice user have more control.
Different knives tackle different jobs. There are 11 different blade profiles for tasks including peeling, paring and carving – and a series of knife sets in popular combinations. Choose knives such as Chefs, Santoku, and Cheese Knife, as well as a 2-piece paring knife set.
The rubberized textured white and grey handles are attractive, it’s that non-slip grip keeps you in control of the knife, even if your hands are wet. Each knife comes with a blade sheath for safe in-drawer storage that also protects the blade.
It is easy to slip while cutting something with a knife. Comfort knives make me feel a lot safer when I’m doing food prep.
The Zyliss Comfort collection knives are affordable with the retail price range of just $9.99 to $14.99 (open stock) and $14.99 for the two-piece paring knife set. The knives are guaranteed for 5 years, and they’re dishwasher safe (but hand washing is recommended).
For the money, “Comfort “is king! for more information visit http://www.zyliss.com
The Mighty Mealthy!
Years ago I fell in love…with a hand immersion blender. The pricey appliance was supposed to replace many food prep appliances in my kitchen. Alas, I quickly realized that the blender was heavy, the accessories were hard to use, and the huge blades terrified me!
Today, this pricey appliance sits in the deepest recesses of my kitchen cabinet. Marie Kondo would tell me it brings no joy, and I should give it away.
But now I’ve discovered the Mealthy Hand Blend. It is a hand blender/immersion blender that’s easier to use, has plenty of attachments, it’s lightweight, and yet it’s just as powerful as my first immersion blender.
Impressive in performance, the Mealthy Hand Blend is just $29 and does everything the more expensive immersion blenders can do.
Easy to Use:
The Mealthy Hand Blend is easy to use. The SpiraSlicer blades blend nearly effortlessly. Just turn the rotary knob on the motorized base to adjust speed settings. Use turbo mode to smooth out sauces, soups and smoothies super smooth. You can even pulverize frozen fruit in the 100% BPA smoothie cup.
