Jenaluca Products You Need In Your Kitchen
I love kitchen accessories about as much as I love office supplies. I can’t help it, I am always on the lookout for kitchen tools that make my love for cooking and baking an easier and faster process.
I have been looking for good quality scoops for a long time to use for melon balling and to scoop dough for more uniform sized cookies. I absolutely love this Jenaluca Scoop Set. It features three sizes: Small 2 tsp, Medium 1-1/2 Tbl, Large 3 Tbl.
These are professional grade scoops and are made from high-quality stainless steel, are recyclable (even down to the packaging) and are dishwasher-safe. The ergonomic design makes them easy to use for both left-handed and right-handed people. The innovative cog and ratchet system makes squeezing them very easy. I don’t have strength issues with my hands, but my mother-in-law does and she even found them very easy to use.
This set (and the various sizes included) are perfect to create round scoops and balls of many kinds: ice cream or sorbet, cookie dough, melon balls, meatballs, mashed potatoes, etc. The larger one is great for portioning cupcake and muffin batter for baking. I particularly love this larger scoop as it makes it easier to load batter into a muffin pan without dripping batter all over the top in between the recessed slots.
Here is the smallest scoop in action. My daughter and I used to to portion cookie dough using this fun baking mix I found at Target for the holidays.
The scoop set made it very easy to portion the cookie dough and we ended up with cookies that were all the same size and very beautiful!
I love using fresh herbs, but I hate trying to chop them up for use. It is enough to make me try to use pre-dried, already chopped herbs for most recipes. Well, NO MORE!!! The Jenaluca Herb Scissors have completely liberated me. They feel great in my hand, I can easily pick them up or put them down without my thumb getting caught up in it … a pet peeve for other types of scissors. I’m in love with the bright, lively green color. And I really appreciate the blade guard that comes with them, which not only protects the blades, but makes for compact and safe storage. I never have to worry about reaching into my utensil drawer and harming my hands trying to grab them.
Look at all of those blades, five stainless steel blades on each side! This will make chopping fresh herbs fast and super easy for all of us who hate this chore. I have used them several times, most recently to chop several types of fresh herbs for a pot of lasagna soup that my daughter requested we try for dinner. We loved it and it has been added to my general rotation of preferred-dishes, which (in the past) I would probably not have done if I’d had to try to chop those fresh herbs. Maybe it’s just me, when I try to chop herbs, they just end up all over the place with some small pieces and some larger pieces … just frustrating in general.
Again, though, this product is recyclable and dishwasher-safe and will serve purposes both in and out of the kitchen. In addition to making short work of cutting herbs, they can also be used for arts and crafts, shredding fabric or paper, and so much more.
Aside from being great looking and making my time in the kitchen a complete breeze, I adore that both of these products have many different uses. Any tool that multi-tasks to this extent is a winner in my book. Either or both of these Jenaluca items would make a great (dare I say, essential) addition to your household. As well, they would make great gifts for weddings, bridal showers, as hostess gifts or for housewarming parties, birthday or holiday gifts.
