Progressive Folding Pizza Wheel

Leverage is an important aspect of pizza. It can be defined as:

The power to influence a person or situation to achieve a particular outcome.

This means in pizza language being the one who gets to choose the toppings! However as far as the Progressive Folding Pizza Wheel is concerned, the definition probably means:

The exertion of force by means of a lever or an object used in the manner of a lever.

In other words, it is a way to stop those that insist on putting sardines on pizza easily cut pizza slices. Finally! What ever did we do before this.

Slice Thin, Slice Quick, Store Folded

Progressive International HGT-11 Folding Mandoline Slicer

Kitchen gadgets that offer quick and reliable usage are practically indispensable. When it comes to prep work, slicing is usually best handled by a knife. That is, unless the desired result is super thin slices—the kind a mandoline can easily provide.

There’s nothing fancy about the Progressive International HGT-11 Folding Mandoline Slicer. For less than $15, however, it can do so much: thick slice, thin slice, super thin, thick julienne, thin julienne, and super thin julienne. When said and done, just pop it in the dishwasher for easy cleaning. It even folds for convenient storage. Just try doing that with a fancy knife.

Twist Up A Batch Of Curly Fries

Curly Fry Cutter by Progressive International

Curly fries may have been the last great excuse to rationalize a trip to a fast food restaurant. After all, they aren’t exactly easy to make at home; at least not with a kitchen knife. With the Curly Fry Cutter by Progressive International on hand, the dastardly delights can always be just a potato away.

With stainless-steel blades and a unique threaded rod, the 3-cup capacity cutting tool makes quick work of a pile of potatoes. Capable of making slices or a continuous spiral of potatoes or yams, the kitchen gadget makes it easy to prep distinctive creations ready to drop in the deep fryer. And as the cutter is top-rack dishwasher-safe, even the old excuse of not wanting to do the dishes can’t be used to promote a trip to the drive-thru.
