Kitchen Gadget Guessing Game
My fiancÚ's mother threw a "get to know my daughter in law to be" tea party for me yesterday. (It was kinda like a bridal shower, but only for her friends and was additional to the lovely and fabulous cosmopolitan bridal shower that my bridesmaids threw for me!) I had a wonderful time and she really did an amazing job. If you'd like, you can see some pictures of the table setting and food she served here:

My future mother in law send out two recipes card with the shower invitations and had all of her friends bring their two favorite recipes which she gathered in a lovely cookbook for me. I was such a great idea and I was really floored by the gesture and all the incredible recipes I received! She also gave me a small, really old and tattered notebook that was a cookbook her mother wrote when she was young for a school project. There is no date on it, but we know it must be at least 60 years old! I can't wait to flip through it and see all the interesting recipes it holds.

Anyway, where I'm getting at with all this is that she also had a few shower games at this tea party get-together. One of them I'd like to share with all of you. She bought a whole bunch of kitchen gadgets and passed them around and we all had to guess what they were, the one with the most right won. I didn't win and got 5 wrong myself but it was such a blast (especially the hilarious answer my clueless but loveable fiancÚ was making up!) that I figured I should share the fun with you. The best part... I got to keep all the gadgets! :w00t2:

Here are the items. I didn't think to put a ruler next to them for scale when I took the pictures but they all fit on a regular sheet of paper (except the 2nd to last one). Just consider the lack of scale as an added challenge.

See how many you can guess. (And no fair peeking ahead to other people's answers before posting! :tongue: ):

1. (Notes: The curved end is slightly serrated)



4. (Notes: If you look closely you'll see that the straight knife end has two blades)



*** It won't let me add too many pictures in one post, so items 7-20 will follow below. ***

:mad: None of my links will work! It seem the censor filters are a bit too over zealous and won't let my sight through. :angry:

All the links should be at throop.wit wat.net but get rid of the space in the middle.

If any mods can fix the links (turn off the bad word filters for this post or something like that) so that the pictures will show in the post, I would really really appreciate it.

LOL, they are censoring t w a t. Is there anyway you can change the name? I have most of those. Except #2 I think it's like a avacado slicer or something.

Ruth 05-02-2005 08:59 AM

I realized what they were censoring, I just didn't want to spell it out. :blush:

My objection is not to what they were blocking but that the censors are so thorough that they get part of a word... If tried to write salt water without the space it would come out like sal****er! This is bit too much if you ask me... :wacko:

Anyway, quite impressive that own most of of them! :clap: You must have a huge kitchen... I'm still trying to figure out where to put them all!

Oh, and no, sadly :sad: there isn't anyway that I can change the domain name. If someone can show me another place where I can post them (and not have to register, sign up or pay for anything) I would appreciate it and would be able to change the urls so that it would work.

You could put them on photobucket. Well I've been with my hubby almost 30 years, you pick up stuff! #1 is something I use all the time!:mrgreen:

Ruth 05-02-2005 09:15 AM

I went to photobucket and almost immediately turned away because they wanted you to sign up and give out your email, etc. I already get so much spam that I'm VERY wary about registering for free sites anymore. But then I saw a link to TinyPic.com and that was perfect! Exactly what I was looking for! I'll go and post all the pics there and edit the above to fix the urls.

Thanks so much for letting me know about that site!

7. (Note: The purple part is a flexible silicone material)





12. (Notes: Sorry this picture is cropped but I wanted to be sure to get the detail on the end. The cropped end is just a handle.)

What a cool future MIL you have!!!

OK here are my guesses for your game.

1. Grapefruit segmenter (no idea if this is a real word LOL)
2. Avocado Slicer
3. Vegetable peeler (I must be missing something on this one)
4. Shrimp devainer possibly? or maybe so sort of herb knife. No I think I will stick with shrimp devainer.
5. Some sort of pitter
6. wonton crimper

OK I don't feel very confident about most of these. I can't wait to find out the real answers.

Ruth 05-02-2005 10:03 AM

19. (Notes: The end is made out of rubber)

16. No idea, but it looks interesting
