A Real Helping Hand in the Kitchen: The Staybowlizer
Hurt myself. Again. Hard to type. Even harder to work in the kitchen. Really makes me appreciate how fortunate I am.
Between all the writing I do and the constant kitchen activity, I got me some vicious carpal tunnel syndrome in my left hand (I even have the ugly wrist brace to prove it).
In addition to curating my fabulous website (http://www.mamashighstrung.com), I’m a culinary consultant for major food companies... so I really can’t afford to miss a day’s work.
With my left hand out of commision, the sturdy Staybowlizer really is like a third hand in the kitchen (or in my case, a second hand). This is great for someone who is injured or has a disability. The Staybowlizer holds your bowl in place so you can whisk your vinaigrette and stir your batter without your bowl dancing off the countertop.
This is a great alternative to the “damp towel ring” many of us have used to steady a bowl on the counter. The suction-like bottom keeps the Staybowlizer where you want it, and the tapered opening lets you tilt and angle the bowl for easier whipping. You can also invert the 8¾-inch Staybowlizer ring on top of a pan of boiling water to create a double boiler. It’s made of BPA-free FDA standard food-safe silicone and is microwave and oven safe to 500°F.
Best part? It’s dishwasher safe. And, it comes in a lot of cool colors, so it even looks nice on your table as a trivet.
Here’s a great video that will show you what it’s all about:
