Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen

I’m sure a lot of people agree that old fashioned or new and high-tech, kitchen tools are fun to look at and use.  I constantly have a long list of kitchen tools to adopt next. This week, I’m in love with this orange-colored slicer I bought a year ago, Swissmar V-7000 Borner VPower V-Slicer Mandoline. To be honest, I was a bit scared of using “shredding” blade before, but shredding vegetable is addictive! I’m experimenting some new shapes & flavors with it, and it’s been pretty exciting.

My favorite tool at the kitchen exhibition at MoMA was this rolling cookie cutter from 50’s. Now I am in search of this type of cutters, even i don’t make that many cookies. If you’ve seen something similar, let me know.

Great for the next music theme party, or I can be a little kitchen drummer girl.
