explore the smart kitchen ★ By Lynn coulter For cooking and serving, these tools are your friends. Bowled Over Eco-conscious cooks appreciate kitchen tools fashioned from bamboo, an economical and abundant alternative to trees. Island Bamboo uses moso bamboo, which is not consumed by China’s endangered giant pandas, to create beautiful, earth-friendly cutting boards, spatulas, salad tongs, and more. The lightweight, oblong hue Bamboo bowl in Dark Green, Simple Orange, or Vibrant Red serves hot or cold foods. Available in different sizes. $15–$49 Don’t Cook the Books Oops — watch out for that battersplatter when your cookbook is near the mixer. Here’s a tip to avoid this kind of mess. Read your recipes from your iPad, docked safely out of the way in a three-piece WilliamsSonoma Smart Tools set. A stand holds your tablet horizontally or vertically in four different positions, and a removable screen shield protects against accidental splashes. Use the Bluetooth speaker in the base to listen to music, catch a cooking video, or chat while you sift and stir. $200 52 march 2013 Bubble Up It’s amazing how bubbles invigorate a beverage. We’re not talking about effervescent bubbly that tickles your nose and taps your wallet. With a Sodastream home Soda maker, you can infuse ordinary tap water with fizz and flavors that duplicate your favorite sodas. Omit the flavoring and you’ve got refreshing sparkling water. Choose from over 60 syrups that taste like leading regular and diet drinks. The soda maker is available in a variety of styles, colors, and features. (Sodastream also offers reusable bottles.) From $80 Triple Duty Sharp blades make quick work of kitchen chores, but knives and peelers that roll around in drawers are dangerous for harried chefs who reach before they look. The Prepara Trio Peeler has three surgical steel blades nested in the gadget’s handle, so your fingers are safe when you’re grasping for the tool. Use the serrated “soft” blade for tomatoes and peaches, the “hard” one for apples and potatoes, and the julienne peeler for carrots. A carbon steel paring knife is included with the peeler. $15
