Kitchen Craft Meat Baller
Disadvantages: Scissor action quite difficult to get balls firm enough
After attending a cake course to learn to make cake pops I discovered a kitchen Gadget I didn't own that did seem very practical.
I found the Italian none stick meat baller cheapest on Amazon and promptly ordered the item. It arrived a few days later and is very lightweight and plastic so easy to wash. This item is also dishwasher safe but unfortunately my own dishwasher is a bowl of soapy water.
The gadget itself is like a pair of scissors but with two half circles. To use you simply put the ingredients in the cup and squeeze together wipe away the excess open and your small balls easily slide out.
Now while this is advertised as a meat baller it does have multiple uses. I have used this for making small stuffing balls, cake pops, meat balls and cookies prior to be rolled out.
The stuffing balls are quite small but if you do like crispy stuffing it is ideal. I found the cookies were far more even in size and thickness than when I have previously rolled them in my hands.
As an actual meat baller I found they again make even size meatballs. As I am following meatballs most of mine are handmade and this makes even cooking far easier to achieve.
The cake pops do work far better with this gadget as it does squash the crumbled cake and icing together to make a compact ball which without it they would more than likely crumble.
I did find that the scissor action quite difficult and find that it was far easier to squeeze down around the ball directly rather than using the handles.
I have managed forty years of my life without a meat baller so do I really need one? Yes you can live without one. I did buy mine to make cake pops but I continue to find more uses for this gadget every day. This Item is £4.85 on Amazon with free super saver postage.
I would recommend this product if you do cook or bake on a regular basis from scratch and I am sure there are many more uses for this product that I have not yet discovered.
