Even if you aren’t the most enthusiastic cook, you can’t beat a good kitchen gadget. And if you are an extremely enthusiastic cook, even better! Kitchen gadgets are there to make our lives easier in the preparation or consummation of food, or to make one of our creations look better and more professional.

Whether it is the latest in knife technology or a gadget to remove the top from a boiled egg, there is almost a gadget for every culinary problem – and one for things that you didn’t even realize were a problem.

three different kitchen gadgets all in use

Here are some of this year’s best kitchen gadgets:

Jenaluca Herb Scissors

It is always a bit of a job finely chopping those herbs. The Jenaluca herb scissors have just made that job so much easier – the scissors are comprised of four separate blades meaning that herbs can be cut quickly and evenly, giving your herbs a professional look and distributing the flavour more evenly.

iGrill2 Thermometer

This thermometer does more than just measure the temperature of the inside of your food. Its multiple probes mean that you can track up to four different foods in one session, and it will link directly to an app on your smartphone to help you monitor at all times. Check it out Here.

Ravi Wine Chiller

Any wine buff will tell you of the problem of chilling your wine to exactly the right temperature. Not only is it a question of time, but it’s also getting it to the right temperature – which varies from wine to wine. This wine chiller fits over the top of the bottle and will chill the wine to exactly the right temperature as it pours out of the bottle. Check it out on Amazon Here.

Quirky’s Egg Minder

A specialist egg tray combined with a smartphone app can be used to tell you which of your eggs is oldest and which you should be using first to avoid wastage. The special LED technology in conjunction with the app can tell you which eggs to eat first and also notify you when you are running low on them. Check it out on Amazon Here.

Simplehuman Sensor Soap Pump

This soap pump works in exactly the same way as the trash can. It senses when your dirty hands are close by and dispenses soap accordingly. Meaning no more greasy soap dispensers or pastry encrusted pumps. Check it out Here.
