      I love the air popper. Add some butter spray and some cinnamon/sugar mix (I use Splenda) and it's great!

        I feel like the salad cutter would be really good for young kids learning to cook. Keeps them safe and teaches them out knives and cutting ect.

          I think its great for people who are older as well with nervous conditions that make them shake or people who AREN'T a chef.

        There's a new nonstick pan. Hex something or other. Supposedly, you can use metal utensils with it. Can you review that?

          That popcorn maker I don't consider a gadget as that was what I grew up using and thought that was how you were supposed to make popcorn.

            Yeah, it's just an air popper. It's as much of a gadget as a toaster

                Wait, they haven't seen an air-popping popcorn maker?!

                I have one that I swear my mom picked up in the 70s it's so yellowed and old. You know that yellow colour old appliances have? Yeah that. Still makes perfect air-popped popcorn like it was brand spanking new. We even have a little dish on top that uses that hot air to make melted butter.

                  I'm guessing you are from the u.s.? I've heard that they are uncommon in other places.

                                I had a popcorn maker as a kid, didn't know it was done in pan until adulthood. Suprised you hadn't seen one before.

                                    the popcorn popper was good, but nothing else.

                                      I have a popcorn maker -- not that one, but another type. It's not bad, but not necessary. Super loud though. Also -- I'd totally use the scale/measuring jug.

                                        I'm a Psychologist and I actually work with young people in the autistic spectrum in residential care. Added to their autism, they have very severe learning disabilities and most have other challenges such as cerebral palsy, Sturge-Weber Syndrome and other conditions which make their motor skills and grip suffer. I try to get them involved in a weekly cooking session and something like that salad bowl in different sizes would greatly help them for chopping just about anything if it were the right size.

                                          I liked the scale thingy... I find it would be useful... I always make a mess trying tho measure the ingredients... 😶

                                          Just had a thought about this segment... instead of trawling Amazon for new gadgets... how about some historical kitchen gadgets? Put them to the test and see if they’re ‘No great loss’ or ‘loss to life’... (older the gadget the better methinks!)

                                                      That's the popcorn maker most people use in America, if they don't use the microwave packets. Since I don't like toppings on my popcorn, it's the only choice for me.

                                                              So how about a team cooking in hand cuffs where Jamey is hand cuffed to Ben and Barry is hand cuffed to James. Its probably to dangerous though is the biggest issue I see.

                                                                                1. Just use a knife... Like seriously... Why do these things need to exist?
                                                                                2. Use a metal bowl to cook popcorn. It's faster and tastes better than air popped by an oversized thing that just takes up cabinet space.
                                                                                3. It's just another gimmicky piece of tat. If you don't already own a kitchen scale, you shouldn't be baking.
