If there is one thing that catches our eye when it comes to kitchen gadgets, it is bright and vivid color. And although that was the original allure Core Kitchen had on us, it lured us in to something much greater.
Located in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, the home of Central Michigan University, we’re always on the lookout for products that offer a lot of “wow” but take up little space. Living in a dorm or a small apartment, you really don’t have a lot of space to fill – especially in your kitchen. So knowing what tools are essential and discovering ways to store them effectively are crucial pieces to eating well when your living space is small.
This doesn’t just apply to our college students either. Anyone who has a small kitchen, myself included, needs to maximize space as much as possible. To me, that’s the true benefit of Core Kitchen and their snapping utensils and dual-sided snapping measuring cups and spoons. Utensils that are bright, functional, and take up as little room as possible? Yes please!
The utensils come in a 5 piece set and include a spoon, slotted spoon, spatula, slotted spatula, and pasta server. All the basics needed to ensure a healthy meal ends up on your plate. Since they all snap together, they are also easy to store and easy to keep together.
The measuring cups and spoons also take up less space than your traditional sets and rest evenly on your counter for easy and accurate measuring. Another must-have if you want to continue expanding your cooking repertoire. Knowing your portion sizes can also help you eat healthier too and nothing is more accessible or as versatile at home for measuring than these handy tools.
The cutting board is also a nice addition to any kitchen even though it doesn’t snap to anything like the other two items do. The GripStrip Funnel Board is awesome in its own rite because it allows you to easily keep ingredients on your board until you’re ready to transition them to a bowl or pan. The raised ridges help with that. The grip strip on the bottom also ensures that your cutting board stays in place while you chop away, making this board uber functional and helpful during meal prep time. And just like the measuring cups and utensils, the board is available in a variety of bright colors. Buy two in different shades and you’ll also more easily prevent cross-contamination of germs – just remember to keep one board for meats and the other for produce.
Core Kitchen offers these and many other bright and functional products online and at various retailers throughout the country. We don’t carry them yet at thePlate Boutique, but we’re thinking they would be an excellent addition.
