Switchit Spatula and Spoonula

The Switchit Spatula and Spoonula are two kitchen utensils that you need before the gravy, mashed potato, pie, and cookie season hits. You won’t need much besides these two little gems during the holiday season!

The Switchits are silicone spatulas and spoons that have two differently-sized ends to the utensil to accommodate any task in the kitchen. The larger spatula or spoon side is great for typical kitchen jobs such as scraping, serving, and mixing. Then you “switch-it” to the smaller size end that can be used for spreading icing, scraping the last bit out of a jar, or handling peanut butter for fudge since it does not stick to silicone. You gotta love a two for one deal!
Because they are silicone, you can keep a good grip, even with wet hands, and they will scrape a bowl clean in a second. The Switchits are one solid unit, so no more spatula heads falling off in your cake batter or getting food stuck in tiny crevices. They are dishwasher safe and heat resistant, so you can use them for stirring and sautéing in your non-stick pans or other delicate bake ware.

Spill Stop - use this one

The Spill Stopper

Who hasn’t suffered the dreaded mess of a boiled-over pot of pasta water? That starchy residue goes all over your stove-top and crusts on your pot, making it a headache to scour.
We have found the simple solution that makes boil-overs a thing of the past—the Spill Stopper.

The Spill Stopper is a food-grade piece of silicone that is safe up to 400°. You use it as a lid or splatter guard over a boiling pot, and it prevents the water from going over the sides.
How does it work? The middle of the lid has flaps that resemble flower petals. They vent the heat but compress the bubbles below the lid. Water and steam are able to escape through these petals. The water collects on the top of the lid, never to run down the sides of your pot and all over your clean stove-top again.

The Spill Stopper is dishwasher-safe and fits pots and pans up to 9” in diameter. Who would have thought such a simple device could solve such nasty messes!

Find out for yourself just how necessary this is for your kitchen. You will never want to boil water without one again after seeing it in action. Stop in, or contact us at (877) 525-7745 or info@goodcookingstore.com to pick yours up today!


Dough Press Set

Dough Press Set

Who doesn’t love a good cheesy calzone, or a sweet and gooey cherry turnover? Now you can make your own effortlessly at home with a Dough Press Set!

The Dough Press Set comes with four different sized presses: 3 ¼”, 4”, 5” and 6” giving you the perfect size you need for any recipe. It is made of durable, dishwasher-safe plastic so it is naturally non-stick. You use the back of the presses as the perfectly shaped cutter for either store-bought and handmade dough to make the appropriate size circle. Then take the dough round and lay it on top of the open press, fill it with your choice of ingredients, and close the press to allow the “teeth” to seal the dough pouch securely. Now you are ready to deep fry or bake your creations!

The presses take the guesswork out of cutting your dough and are multiple tools all in one compact set. Stop in, or contact us at (877) 525-7745 or info@goodcookingstore.com to pick up your set today!


Dice and Pop Cuber

Dice and Pop Cuber

We love our French fries, but, sadly, they really are not good for us. A way to enjoy one of the most popular foods in America healthfully is to make our own and bake, rather than fry, them. An excellent tool for making picture-perfect fries quickly is the Dice and Pop Cuber.

This fun, pint-sized gadget will accurately slice down a whole potato into fries in seconds by using the handles to press the blades down and through the potato in one quick motion. It will also cube just about anything, including potatoes for hash browns! To make cubes, slice your potato into ½” thick pieces and lay it in between the blades and the safety popper. By pressing with the handles, the popper will press the slice of potato through the blades creating small dices of potatoes without ever coming in contact with the blades.

When you are cubing food with the Dice and Pop Cuber, you can use the cup attachment that will catch the cubes keeping your food safe in the container as well as allowing you to measure as you work. The container can hold 1½ cups and comes with a convenient lid for storing your foods for later use.

Your whole family will love creating their own healthy fries and hash browns with just a flick of the wrist. Stop in to pick one up, or contact us at 877-525-7745 or info@goodcookingstore.com to order yours today!
