Take the frozen treat maker for example, this is probably one of the most handy kitchen gadgets I've ever found. A sort of ice cream machine it takes chunks of frozen fruit and processes them in a few seconds, producing beautiful creamy iced treats which being pure fruit are low fat, low sugar and high in fiber.

Home Bread Bakers: Use Your Loaf!
The next little gem is one known more to us avid home bread bakers. Having slaved over a hot loaf for five minutes loading the bread machine, it's the cutting that's the tricky bit. Without a bread cutting guide, every loaf goes the same way and ends up quite literally shaped like a doorstop. You can then risk your fingers if you wish - and I don't!
Loaf shaped (fancy that) there are several different types which do the same thing in more or less the same way. The loaf sits in the centre of the bread knife guide and the knife is guided as you cut, meaning slices stay straight and so does the loaf of bread, right to the end. If you have home baked bread and are consistently wasting a third of each loaf, this is a pretty cool solution.
Single Task Gadgets Seem To Work Best
Partly because gadgets like these aren't really 'fashionable', neither was expensive even at the high-end of the brands and ranges, yet they are both incredibly useful, robustly constructed and easily cleaned. Another reason they perform so well is they are designed to do one thing well - these always seem to work better than a do-everything appliance which does lots, but nothing very well.
Often we have awkward tasks in the kitchen and just as frequently there is a bit of equipment designed to help. So go ahead, seek out those odd unusual kitchen gadgets, because you'll likely find some invaluable little helpers in among them.
