Every time I order something new, he shakes his head and says, "There you go again!" He keeps threatening to take away my computer.
I have been wanting the garlic keeper for years, but never thought of it until today. And I did have a butter dish from the 40's. It was made of glass and could hold a whole pound of butter. The Pirate dropped it. It was a refrigerator dish. The only thing I didn't like about it though was that the lid had no handle and was difficult to remove. And since he keeps borrowing my scales that is ancient, I bought a better one that looks like you could weigh a baby on it. He can have my old one. Maybe that will placate him.
My name is Mad Cook and I am a kitchen gadget-holic.
Mind you I only buy things I will use. My latest was a set of scales which I've wanted for ages but felt £85 was more than I could justify then I spotted a second-hand set on Ebay for a fraction of the price and not a mark on it. It came with metric wights but I have a set of imperial weights that belonged to my mother. Good old balance scales are generally more accurate than the spring ones. You could weigh a baby in mine too.
Oh and a Microplane grater - wonderful gadget. can't think why I waited so long to buy it.
