Lee Valley – Scoop Measuring Bowls

Lee Valley: EV149

The broad, flat side of these bowls makes collecting ingredients directly from a cutting board a snap. The bevelled edge rests flush on the cutting board to ensure ingredients go into the bowl, not under the lip, and you can use one of the corners as a pouring spout.

Comes as a set of three nesting bowls (1/2 cup, 1 cup and 2 cups) with Imperial and metric graduations marked on the inside. Made of hard ABS plastic, they are BPA free and dishwasher safe in the top rack. Not microwaveable. A practical improvement over regular prep bowls.

Lee Valley – Knife Sharpener

Lee Valley: 70M46.50

Sub-micron carbide particles in this sharpener are about one-fortieth the diameter of a human hair and are the kind used in the most demanding of metal-machining processes.

Extremely hard and durable, the carbide can be ground to a much keener and more durable edge than common carbides. Each of the two blades has four edges and can be rotated to a new edge if one is accidentally damaged.

The sharpener comes as a right-handed version but the blades are easily reversed to convert it for left-handed use.

To sharpen a knife you just draw it through the intersecting carbide blades with light pressure. A very dull knife may initially require several light passes but can be maintained thereafter with a single pass for touch-ups.

Not only is it easy to use, but if used with care, it should last for as long as you (or we) live.
