Eat Yourself Skinny with These Genius Kitchen Gadgets
7 tools that'll help you stick to that diet
After a glorious summer filled with ice cream and lobster rolls and rosé, we’re pretty sure we’re not the only ones in need of a fall detox.
Good thing these seven kitchen tools are perfectly designed to help us meet our dieting goals.
It’s the dish that counts calories for you: Simply assemble your meal (say, fish and quinoa with a side of broccoli), and SmartPlate’s sensors will automatically identify, weigh and analyze everything, displaying the nutritional content at the top of the plate. There’s even a corresponding app that acts as a food diary so you can track your habits--and smart eating progress.
Available for preorder ($119)
Sticking to egg whites only is a lot easier with this nifty tool. The little suction tube squeezes out the whites and saves the yolks, so you can say goodbye to the days of fishing out eggshell remnants.
We love a spritz of citrus for an instant, zero-cal taste boost. And spritzing gets a whole lot easier with the Stem, a no-mess gizmo that sticks directly into a lemon or lime for anytime flavor.
PRESS-AND-MEASURE OLIVE OIL DISPENSER
Keep tabs on exactly how much olive oil you’re adding to your salad dressing or pasta with this handy gadget, which dispenses down to the teaspoon with the touch of a button.
Uncommon Goods ($20)
Speaking of pasta, you’ll want to keep tabs on that, too. The Spaghetti Measure comes with an adjustable slider that makes it easy to parse out perfect portions--whether you’re making dinner for one or four.
Sur la Table ($7)
And if you just want to check yourself before you wreck yourself, there’s this device, designed to help you measure USDA-approved portion sizes right on your plate. So you’ll always know if you’ve been over-served on the rice.
