The Pastry Cutter. This was a shower gift for our wedding over 12 years ago…well not this one…a couple months ago the handle on my pastry cutter broke. Of course I could still use it and did. I would throw it away once a new one was purchased. Well, looking all around for it one night I finally asked my husband if he had seen it. Yes, you guessed it he had tossed it. Finally after weeks of searching I found one at Different Drummer’s Kitchen at Stuyvesant Plaza in Albany. http://differentdrummerskitchen.com
This item is used several times a week in our kitchen. For several different things, but the best thing about a pastry cutter is that the kids love it and can use it independently and you don’t have to worry about them chopping their fingers off. Now if that is not a bonus I don’t know what is!
