rFAFi – Reader’s Funky Appliance Fiesta
Today is Reader’s Funky Appliance Fiesta hosted by umami. The idea is that you post a photo of an appliance or kitchen gadget that you own and that is unusual in design (i.e. funky).
Fortunately for me, the original concept of funky appliances was expanded to include other kitchen gadgets used in the preparation of food. I do have an old blender – but it is not nearly as colorful as umami’s. My other appliances are pretty standard. I do have a few unusual gadgets, though, one of which I’ve posted a photo of before. I’m still not sure what it is or how to use it.
For today, though, I decided to show you my lovely Pinocchio funnel given to me by my brother. He was purchased at shop near the Mercato Centrale in Florence, but he is made by Alessi, so I imagine he can be found in many other places.
I haven’t really put him to good use yet. I tried to use him recently when I was ladling jam into jars, but he got a stuffy nose.
