We know that if you’re a customer of ours, or are considering our solid oak kitchen cabinets for your dream kitchen, there’s a high likelihood you’re also a keen chef – or at least know someone who is! In this, the first of our monthly posts focusing on gadgetry for your kitchen, we’re looking at an ingenious invention from Britain’s culinary mascot of healthy eating – Mr Jamie Oliver. To compliment his existing range of kitchen wares, Jamie has come up with the ’Flavour Shaker’.
This unique gadget is designed to crush, mix and infuse essences from whole garlic, spices, herbs, nuts, citrus rinds or even lime or bay leaves. It looks perfect for creating salad dressings and marinades, or just to release the flavour of ingredients prior to adding them to the pan.
Start by popping your ingredients inside the bottom half, then add the magic ball and give it a good shake – just like you would a cocktail maker. The tough ceramic ball does all the hard work – crushing, grinding and bruising whatever you’ve loaded inside, to release intense aromas and zesty flavours. Available for £20, it’s cheaper than a decent pestle and mortar, and far less messy!
