While unloading the dishwasher yesterday morning (surely the best sound in the world is the steady whirr of the dishwasher working away when you go to bed at night) I suddenly realised my most-used kitchen tools are all under-sized.
The little egg flipper thing (at least, that’s what we call it) is brilliant for lifting biscuits off trays, flipping fritters, fried eggs or fishcakes, the miniature whisk is useful for one-egg wonders or making small batches of mayo, the hot pink spatula is useful for everything, particularly porridge making and the tongs are so well-used that we’ve gone through two sets in the last year (though they are not so good if you’re using them near hot oil, as my burned hands can attest).
I do have some normal-sized tools, of course, but these little guys are my closest companions in most tasks.
Do you go in for mini-me kitchenalia? Does size matter at your place?
