New Kitchen Gadgets from Sur La Table

My husband and I were in Sarasota this past weekend for a friend's wedding. (Shout out to Brook.) We were hanging around downtown Sarasota looking for a place to have dinner. We turned a corner to park the car and saw a Sur La Table. It was totally meant to be. (Another cool find was the Whole Foods right across the street, also a very fun place.) For those of you who don't know what it is, Sur La Table is a kitchen retail store kind of like William Sonoma. I was very excited and we immediately went inside to check it out. They have everything you can imagine and we picked out a couple of fun kitchen gadgets to take home with us. Here is what we purchased:

4-set of silicone cutting boards
These are awesome. They are color coded for vegetables, fish, chicken and meat to prevent cross contamination. Plus, they are flexible and the bottom sticks to most surfaces, so they don't slide around while chopping and slicing.
Ceramic Scraper
This scraper is great for pots and pans when you are food caked onto them. It is even safe on nonstick surfaces. A major plus! A multi-mixer/emulsifier
This little gadget is great for making salad dressings and marinades. I used it tonight and it combines oil and vinegar really well.
Flexicado Avocado Slicer
You know I think avocado is the most perfect fruit/vegetable out there, so I was stoked about this little tool. I used this tonight and I have to say I wasn't all that impress. It's supposed to slice your avocado in one fell swoop, but mine didn't come out too pretty. Maybe I just need to practice more.
