Kitchen Craft Meat Baller
Advantages: Inexpensive, makes uniform meatballs, non stick
Kitchen Craft is a great company for kitchen items and I have loads of their products in my house. What I like about them is that they are such good quality for prices which aren't exorbitant and they are usually all genuinely useful things that get used time and time again.
The meat ballers is a great little item for helping to shape perfect meatballs. I tend to have meatballs a lot as they are my one of my favourite dishes which comes from them being one of the nicest weight watchers recipes available. Even though I no longer do weight watchers I still tend to make some of the recipes for dinners often.
The meat baller is a simple enough item and is essentially only a pair of tongs with two hollowed out holes either side to shape the meat balls. To use them you just need to either fill them with mince or else just do what I do and dip them in the mince and then squeeze them together to cut off the edges and leave you with rounded meatballs.
These really do make perfectly round meatballs and they look so much prettier than when you do them by hand. Because they are uniform in size they also all cook at the same time so you know if one is ready then they all are instead of some being cooked and some not because then you run the risk of overcooking the larger ones and making them dry.
The meat baller is made from a on stick metal and it does a good job of actually being non stick and the meat just comes loose without too much of a struggle.
They are also really easy to clean and I just tend to put them in the sink with some washing up liquid but you can also just wash them in the dishwasher if you want to.
To be completely honest these are a bit of a luxury and there is no actual need for them as you can make meatballs by hand easily enough but they do make it just a little easier and I like the fact that all the meatballs are all the exact same size. Also the aren't very expensive and only cost £5.99 so although they are a bit frivolous it is an inexpensive luxury and one that I was happy to pay.
Summary: An inexpensive luxury
