Favorite New Tool & Other Cool Finds

Super cool kitchen beakers to use as measuring cups via White On Rice Couple

Summer isn’t over yet. So we’re closing our eyes and ears to anything that’s remotely related to pumpkins and Halloween costumes. We’re still squeezing out more tomatoes from the garden and we’re not likely to be giving up Summer at least until next month. And so far, we’ve had a blast this Summer with the pups road trip and best of all, finding some new kitchen tools that we’ll be sharing over the next few weeks. Well the pups road trip was actually the best of all, but the new kitchen tools are pretty cool too.

Todd’s find: To start, we’ve been collecting some these fantastic kitchen beakers in so many different shapes and sizes. I don’t know what it is, but we love beakers. Funny thing is, we love, love, love using them in certain situations, like juicing or making cocktails. However when cooking, we still keep reaching for our ole measuring cups. Although I think its mostly due to only have metric measurements on most of the beakers and some day’s my head doesn’t want to do the conversions. We need to find a well made set with both measurements and we’ll be totally happy. Until then, at least we’re stocked up for Halloween parties! Oh wait, we aren’t letting go of summer yet. Pause that thought for another month. You can purchase the beakers here and here for the flasks.

We’ve also made some time to browse the web and came across so many cool and delicious finds on Pinterest:

- Crazy amazing loaded nachos that fill a whole sheet pan. The video leaves you screaming for a few beers too.

- Make homemade ravioli. It’s so easy. And baked? Pronto.

- Healthy can still be delicious without the carbs. These Zucchini noodles are brilliant.

- Vegetarian tacos all the way. With spicy crema!

- Can’t believe we never made this before. Marinated mushrooms are so fabulous!

Have a great weekend everyone,

diane and todd

Love the links and the beakers. And I am not letting go of summer yet either – this is the best time in SoCal, in my opinion! Have a great weekend!

If you like beakers, and need the customary…and not try and sound like Amazon…”you may also enjoy”…the OXO International 4-Piece Mini Measuring Beaker Set!

I have several flasks and beakers that I love to use on the bar for company when I’ve premixed some spirit. Somehow they managed to lose their way from my high school chemistry class oh so many years ago (wonder how?) and they are still in fantastic condition. Hmm….must now find them!

Totally agree with you about summer. I like my summer to be hot, eventhough many people like the fall-like weather we’ve had. We are harvesting more tomatoes, okra, eggplants and butternut squash this weekend, but this is probably it. We’ve had a great season, eventhough it rained half the summer here in TN.

As for the beakers, they look nice, but too scientific for me.

Fun to re-purpose laboratory glassware for use in the kitchen :) But I would be very surprised if you find them with anything but metric measurement since virtually all science is done using the metric system these days. Maybe you could find some antiques somewhere, which would be really cool.

As a caution, only use beakers that are new if you’re putting food you will eat in them. My dad is a molecular biologist and when I went through a phase of loving beakers as well, he gave me the same caution. You don’t know what chemicals have been in them and you certainly don’t want them in your food. Vintage beakers may be fun to look at, but don’t put food in them unless it will be thrown away.
