With Thanksgiving just a few days away, it's time to get smart about getting things done in the kitchen. So I want to highlight an item I use in my kitchen that makes food prep fast and easy.
The Clever Cutter
If you have hand pain that makes using a knife difficult, you need to check out The Clever Cutter. It looks like a pair of scissors, but is actually a combination of a knife and mini cutting board.
The advantage of this tool is that you can cut fruits and vegetables right into the serving bowl, which makes preparing a salad a snap. It is very easy on your hand when you use it because it incorporates a metal spring into its design. It is easy to clean and is dishwasher safe. The Clever Cutter can be stored in a closed position (with the knife resting on the white cutting board) for safer storage.
Here is a video I found on YouTube that shows The Clever Cutter in action (although I'm not sure who you call to get 2 for $10):
Unlike a knife, it can not cut through everything. The scissor-like configuration does make it hard to cut large items, like watermelons or a whole raw chicken into pieces. It is also a little difficult to sharpen the knife part of the device, but with some practice it gets easier.
This is an example of a Seen On TV product that actually works really well. It does what it says and makes my life much easier. This unconventional product gets used A LOT in my kitchen. It is a definite winner, so much so that I am going to buy a second one *just in case* something unforeseen happens to the one I already own.
