Campanelli’s Cooking Buddy Cleans Up Nice

Campanelli's Cooking Buddy - Professional Grade All-In-One Pot Holder, Hand Towel, Lid Grip, Tool Caddy, and Trivet.

Things move fast in the kitchen. It’s easy to reach out and grab the wrong thing when cooking up a storm. Of course, this includes hot cookware, but there is another threat lurking when the cooking is fast and furious: The Mess.

Having a hand towel nearby while cooking is essential. Having one that also does duty as pot holder is twice as nice. The Campanelli Cooking Buddy (available in three different colors) is an over-the-shoulder cooking accessory that looks to keep the cooking action smooth.

Magma Hot Plate Keeps Its Cool

Magma Hot Plate

One aspect of preparing a meal that always requires some coordination is the capability to keep hot food, well, hot. After the juggling act is completed, and all the elements of a dish survive hot and ready to be served, there is one last thing to consider: seconds.

Reaching across the table and grabbing a second pork chop is made much more enjoyable if that chop is hot. But if you’re going to keep a hot serving platter on hand while dining, a trivet of some sort is necessary to protect the table. Might as well make it one that helps to keep food at a serving temperature. With a 2-3 minute spin in the microwave, the Magma Hot Plate absorbs enough heat to be kept at the table as a warming device. A heat-resistant base protects tabletops, making this hot plate/trivet combination an easy choice for doing double duty at the dining table.
