Kitchen Gadgets

I don't know about you, but I could get lost in kitchen supply stores looking at all the gadgets.   Do I juice lemons that often?  No, but do I want that yellow juicing tool for my house?  Yes.  Do I ever chop up fresh garlic?  Absolutely not, I've got already minced garlic in my fridge.  But do I feel like I need a garlic zoom to chop fresh garlic efficiently?  You betcha.  So I love a good kitchen gadget, and there's truly a gadget for everything, but there's one kitchen gadget that reigns supreme in Indiana and Kentucky.

Recently a study was conducted by Mr. Appliance, and they looked at data online to determine the most popular kitchen gadget in each state.  This is a super niche study, but I'm glad someone conducted it!   When looking through the most popular gadgets by state I found that both Hoosiers and Kentuckians alike have an affinity for air fryers.
