lucy's favorite gadget

The Down-Home Holiday Guide to Kitchen Gadgets
When not writing books, reviewing craft beers, or staging environmental events, Lucy Saunders likes to flip a pancake with her cool Androck spatula
Author Lucy Saunders -, "Grilling with Beer" - reveals her favorite gadget and, surprise, it has nothing to do with beer  -  This spatula belonged to my mother-in-law, Mary, and has a futuristic design -rocket-shaped tapered handle made in brown Bakelite and, as you can see in silhouette, an off-centered slightly wavy shape to the metal spatula that makes it so easy to use turning eggs, etc. It's the pancake flipper of the 30s -so cool, and made in the USA by Androck. I love making breakfast with it.

Thanks for sharing these - interesting to see that many of these favorite gadgets are hand-powered, not electric....unlike most of the kitchenwares promoted for holiday gifts. hope you're staying warm, hugs, Lucy
