    I'm not a great one for gadgets and I'm not sure if these qualify, but the recently bought kitchen equipment I am most pleased with are a pair of Masterclass cake tins and a cooling rack. These are heavy duty, thick metal and have a non-stick coating. The tins turn out perfect, evenly risen cakes every time, far better than the domed efforts many people end up with. The rack is easy to clean and the non-stick surface of the grid makes it easy to move the cooling cakes about on it without sticking. I'm also very happy with the Screwpull lever action corkscrew that I have used for about twenty years now. It works well for everything, except very old and crumbly corks, e.g. as found with vintage port, for which a manual corkscrew, used gently, remains the best option.

    Instant Pot Max. Sure it's a company looking for money but with 15 psi you can make lentils without soaking them overnight!

    Everybody's thinking of food? That's a very healthy sign!
    Mine are cooking tongs. I never had one until about four years ago when I watched contestants in a TV cooking show use them. Next time out shopping, I bought a pair, and have three more - wide, long and blunt - since them. Can't imagine doing without them anymore.

    The gadgets that have sparked my interest most recently have been tensegrity structures. For example, try googling "tensegrity table". The illusion of anti-gravity appeals to me.

    I think I might also start playing with some hexaflexagons again, if I can find the time. My kids might like them.

    I was thinking the same thing - low tech "robotic fingers" for things you don't want to touch with your human fingers.

    Latest "gadget" since this turned into a cooking thread is probably my chef knife.
    So damn sharp the onions cry when I pick it up.
    Have had it for a month and I still haven't had to sharpen it.

    Simular items might work just as good(?)... but for sure these bottle brush cleaner balls make plastic containers squeaky clean.!!!
    JUst add 1 drop of dish soap... about 1/2" of water an swish the balls around for about 30 to 60 seconds.!!!
