3 Can’t-resist Kitchen Buys

Turn up the heat with these handy cook’s tools



1. YolkR Egg Separator R85, Yuppiechef

No more avoiding recipes calling for single yolks or egg whites because you can’t bear the messy business of separating them! Simply break your eggs into a bowl and squeeze the bulb of the YolkR. Hover it just over the yolk, release the pressure, and watch the yolk get sucked up into the neck of the YolkR. Squeeze again to pop it out into a bowl. There’s no chance of broken yolks, and your hands stay clean. The YolkR disassembles and can be washed in the dishwasher. Available in yellow, light pink, bright blue and black.

Tip! Another GH handy way to separate yolks is to use an empty plastic water bottle to suck up the yolk.


2. Silicone Trivet R100, Le Creuset

The perfect gift for an avid chef (or yourself), Le Creuset’s new silicone trivet is heat resistant up to 425°C, acting as protection for surfaces and counter tops when you’re working with hot pots and pans. Also use it as a nonslip mat when whisking and beating in stoneware bowls. Available in all the signature Le Creuset colours.


Win! Stand a chance a chance to win a Le Creuset Hamper consisting of a 22cm round cast-iron casserole in Marseille Blue, an 18cm Triply stainless-steel saucepan and a toughened non-stick 22cm shallow frying pan, all valued at R3 830. All you need to do is watch the TV ad on their website and answer one very simple question. Winners will be chosen by lucky draw. Competition ends 4 May 2014.


3. Normann Copenhagen Beater R199,95, Entrepo


Winner of a Red Dot Design Award, this stylish, space-saving whisk can be folded together using the ring in the middle. Available in assorted colours, it’s perfect for whisking your eggs, sauces and desserts – and for impressing fellow campers on your next glamping trip.
