Meatball Magic Is A Mystery

Meatball Magic Meatball Maker (8 pc Set)

People often like or dislike a food based on its texture alone–but that usually applies only to eating it. But then again, nobody likes goopy hands. If you want to believe the infomercial, Meatball Magic can help. The idea is to slab down on to the counter a hunk of ground beef, and to cover it with the kitchen gadget. After trimming the excess, roll the whole shebang around on the counter until you get “9 perfect meatballs in seconds”. Whether or not it works is up to you to decide, but at least they didn’t name the contraption Meatball Mystery. Somehow meat meets mystery doesn’t have the same ring to it.

Meatball Baker makes life less greasy

Meatball Baker

Everybody loves a good meatball, but not everybody likes making them. For some, the thought of a frying pan filled with little sizzling spheres splattering in their own grease keeps meatballs off the menu. Luckily, there is another option. If you liked the Meatball Grill Basket, the Meatball Baker is right up your alley.

Basically a roasting pan with a special rack, the gadget keeps meatballs elevated, allowing for fat to drip away from the food. Featuring three rows that hold the meatballs in place, the nonstick carbon steel pan measures 10-inches by 13-inches with a depth of 2.5-inches. The insert itself is 9-inches by 11-inches and can be used for much more than meatballs.

With the rack and pan set having the ability to keep food raised above dripping grease, the opportunity to dig deeper (and greasier) into previously avoidable recipes is just too good to pass up. So dust off that old cookbook from a time when fat content didn’t matter and get to exploring!
