Once upon a time, there was this cute little tea towel who met and married a tall man named “snaps” and together they made these cute little baby “snappy towels” that who, when they were bigger, went out into the world and became wonderful members of kitchen households everywhere. Going by their adult name of “hanging tea towels”, cause they liked to just “hang-out” and stay put on oven railings they would make fun of the other tea towels for being so uncoordinated and falling off. They would challenge other tea towels to last longer on the railing than them… they would kick butt at the Tea Towel Olympics every year… they would do anything to become the best tea towel that ever lived.
And so they won the hearts of kitchen gadget lovers everywhere and lived happily ever after, wash after wash.

The Mastrad Apple Cooker is a great new gadgety thing that we have in-store… I tried it out over the weekend and love it!
Simply core and cut your apples in half, sprinkle some lemon juice and a little bit of brown sugar on top, microwave for 2 minutes – and VOILA! you have a delicious cooked apple dessert… serve with vanilla ice cream and it is simply delicious:) Not a fan of the microwave? The two cookers are silicone and heat resistant up to 480 degrees F, it takes a bit longer, but warm up your oven and cook your apples in there.
Thanks to its ideal size, you can bake all types of fruits: apples, pears, peaches, berries. Whole or sliced, garnished or lightly sugared, fruits or vegetables – with the lid on – the food cooks in the steam issued from its own juice. As a result, it does not dry out and retains its flavour.
Each set includes: 2 Apple Cookers and 1 Corer. Dishwasher safe.
Although it comes with an apple corer, I don’t love it… I prefer to use the stronger, more practical apple corer from OXO Good Grips.
