The Kitchen Gadgets You Didn’t Know You Needed in Your New Home

November 1, 2019

If home is where the heart is, then the kitchen is where happiness is made. At New Tradition Homes, we believe in the power of a really great kitchen, because what could be better than creating something delicious to share with the ones you love most? 

In 2019, just about everything you can buy helps to make life easier and more fun, and kitchen tools are no exception. From the avocado slicer to the egg timer, your kitchen is about to become more efficient than ever before. In your brand new home this fall, try your hand at the kitchen tools you didn’t know you needed!

Avocado Slicer: Let’s face it, we’re living in the “avocado generation,” and we’re not mad about it… This insanely delicious fruit (yes, it’s a fruit) adds flair to breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so there’s nothing as useful as this all-purpose tool, which “splits, pits, and slices” your favorite green treasure. Easy and delicious, #blessed.

Tear-Free Onion GogglesNo, it’s not a miracle — believe it or not, onions don’t have to make you cry anymore. Slip on these comfortable goggles which block out onion vapors, and chop, slice, and mince away!

Dunky Cup: Perfect for your kids (or your late-night snacking), the Dunky Cup makes enjoying cookies easier (and more fun) than ever. This mug-shaped gadget comes with sections to place cookies around a cup for milk. Chocolate chip, Oreos, Thin Mints, you name it — your cookies are now getting dunked in style. 

Norpro Egg Perfect Egg Time: Egg-citing, egg-straordinary, egg-cetera… This tool deserves all the puns. Have you ever dreamed of boiling your eggs exactly to your liking? This egg timer changes color to indicate when your eggs are soft, medium, or hard, so every breakfast tastes just the way you like it.

Jenaluca Herb Scissors: Tasty and nutritious, herbs really are the unsung heroes of just about every dish. Finally, with these magical scissors, the days of messy chopping and a difficult clean up are all gone. Go ahead and “herb your enthusiasm…” Now you can throw as much basil and parsley as you want into tonight’s dinner.

Silicone Splatter ScreenBacon? Incredible. Oil splatters while cooking bacon? Not so nice. The next time you cook something in a pot or a pan, this miraculous screen will save your face (and your sanity!) from splatters. With peace of mind while searing, pan-frying, grilling, etc., your best meals are yet to come.

OXO Good Grips Salad Chopper and Bowl: Who says you can’t make a 5-star-restaurant-quality salad in your own kitchen? With this easy salad chopper and bowl, you can fit all of the vegetables and fix-ins you want into your salad, so no ingredient gets left behind. Grab your fork and let the tastiness begin.

Of course, the best thing to pair with new kitchen gadgets is a New Tradition Homes kitchen… For more information on our beautiful new homes in Washington, please call 360-448-4710.

I don't remember the first time I saw a New Tradition home, but it was MANY years ago. During the internet evolution, I have watched New Tradition evolve into a great company. I don't know why, I guess it was my dream to own one I just didn't know it yet. Years later, my husband and I decided it was time to build. After looking at all the builders and communities we stopped into a New Tradition home and he fell in love! (I was already there). 4 months later the floor plan of our dreams came available and we were hooked. 1 year later, we are now in our New Tradition home and I couldn't be happier!
