Welcome to The Gadget Chef

Ok so I'm not really a chef, but I do like to play one in the kitchen. I'm your everyday average guy, who is really into 2 things, food and gadgets! And I love combining the two and experimenting with that.

I've tried many gadgets out there, some with success and some with miserable failures. But my biggest goal is to limit what space I take up with what gadgets. As a person with a less than sizable kitchen, counter top real estate is so important I can't be the type that has several gadgets out all the time, and I'm also the type that if it's not out and handy, I'm likely not to use it.

So through the course of this blog I will give out some info on those items I've gotten over the years and how I use them, and some recipes, and be sure to share yours too, or comment if you've tried them

Post Christmas fun

Christmas this year was a wonderful event, from some great gifts from all, to seeing my children light up as they opened their presents.  Myself I got 2 things that I will be sharing in more detail soon, but have had some great fun this past week with them.

One of the first things I need to get a picture up of, my mother made an Apron with "The Gadget Chef" embroidered on it.  I was so shocked, I was pretty much crying with laughter.   I will definitely be putting a picture of it on here once I get a chance to.

Another item I got, was the Kitchenaid Food Processor attachment, and while I haven't had a chance to fully go over it, I did use it to dice up some toppings for a salad last night.  My only thoughts were wow.  I absolutely love the dicing the blade.  The tomatoes didn't come out quite as well as I would have hoped, but the cucumbers, carrots, and celery looked like restaurant style toppings, absolutely beautiful.  I also decided that if you want to dice up a mirepoix (onions, celery, and carrots for the rest of us) for a soup base or whatever, you would be able to dice them up into small bites in no time flat with this little beauty, my poor knives might get jealous.

Hopefully I will be able to get a review and some other details up soon.

For now I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, and have a safe and flavorful New Year.
