After my cute pink Cuisinart toaster went Kaputz, it was time to get a new one. So sad, since my Mom had given me the pink one as a gift. We tried fixing it, but couldn't. It was officially in toaster heaven. During a trip to Macy's for the after Christmas sales, I decided to wander around the appliance section upstairs in the home goods area. I decided to purchase this sleek looking new friend. Here she is all brand spanking new on the counter.
We love those curved lines and the retro feel. This toaster is also by Cuisinart so hopefully she'll last longer. I saved the box and receipt this time just in case. You can find the toaster at Macy's still, but we got a significant savings since it was on sale after Christmas and I had a gift card.
My other new pal in the kitchen is my whistling tea kettle from Home Goods. It's made by Palm of Stainless Steel. My old tea pot didn't have a whistle on it and I think about twice I forgot about it and almost melted the whole thing.
This tea kettle is so cool. It has a removable whistle spout cap so you can poor the water. It also has a nice big lid so you can easily wash the inside. And surprisingly the whistle cap, the lid, and the handle don't get hot when the water is boiling.
Anyway, my new kitchen friends make life easier. 4 slices of toast at a time? A mother of three kids needs this! A tea kettle that won't burn the house down? Priceless.
Have you purchased any kitchen tools that made your life easier and also look good on the counter? I think it's time for some toast and tea.
