Cool tools really work. A cool tool can be any tried-and-true book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website. The reviews in this book were written by those of us who have actually used the tool and others like it. We only review things--old or new--that we like and ignore the rest.

This is a curated collection of the best cool tools for the Kitchen. It is not intended as a shopping list or checklist. Consider this a jumping-off point for thinking and re-thinking about what’s possible in your kitchen. Some kitchens can certainly operate with fewer and/or different tools; some might require more. But everything we’ve included here is well worth knowing about.

Made me want to go shop for tools!

Comments about oreilly Cool Tools in the Kitchen:

Being a wannabee chef, I found Cool Tools in the Kitchen by Kevin Kelly and Steven Leckart a fun and informative read.

The book is like a catalog of kitchen gadgets. The only difference is that the book contains candid reviews on the tool and in now way sounded like sales pitches.

The book provides a good sampling of kitchen tools for every kitchen challenge like handling hot items, handling liquids, cutting, etc. Beautifully illustrated, it also contains links to related material and links to where the items can be bought.

Highly recommended for those who cook.
