Cooking in the Viking cooking class put me in the mood for something new for the kitchen. (Exactly as they’d hoped, I’m sure.) The cookware we used in class was high quality and nice! Too expensive, though – and I truly have no NEED for new cookware.
The gadgets were a nice quality, too, but I have plenty of gadgets.
When you don’t need a gadget, a kitchen gadget bookmark is something unique and fun. 😉
The items I collected were a conglomerate of things I can use, either as gifts or in my own kitchen.
You saw the choices of kitchen towels in my post about Viking Cooking School – Southern Specialties from the Hit Movie “The Help”. Since most of us don’t have orange and pink kitchens, I chose this towel with more common colors. Notice the bookmark in the cookbook. Don’t strain yourself, OK?
I thought these items would be fun, but I also bought something practical. Rather some things practical. You may have wondered about the lilypad-type things to the left.
They are Lilypad Lids. Aren’t they cute?
I bought the set because they were much cheaper than individually, and I need every size – 11″, 9″, 6″, and 4″. They are silicone, flexible, and they mold themselves to any smooth rim.
You can use it on any shape of bowl, as long as the rim fits somewhere inside the surface area of the lid. I am thrilled with this little coffee cup size. I often get busy with other things and return to a cold cup of coffee. Do you?
I tested it on my largest and heaviest bowl. The large 11″ size fit perfectly.
Don’t try to carry a bowl by the lid (not that I tried this and almost broke a dish or anything – wink), but you can tell it’s sealed properly by the pull of the suction. To release the suction, lift it by the little loop to the left there.
I paid $36.99 for my set (plus a 10% discount as a class participant). I found them just now on Amazon for $30.95. Here’s the Amazon link to order this set, although you can search for individual sizes, as well. (No, I’m not on Amazon’s payroll…yet. Maybe someday I’ll get around to arranging that. Blogging for no pay is, well, not profitable!) 😉
These Lilypad lids are safe for stove-top, microwave, dishwasher, and oven. Just don’t let them touch a heat source, like a stove or oven heating element.
Are you like me, needing lids for lid-less containers in your kitchen? Won’t these help solve that lost or broken lid problem?
