A Helping Hand

I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Osteoarthritis of the spine.  On bad days I can barely hold up a lettuce leaf never mind standing there holding up a mixer or try to pour boiling water out of a heavy pot.  I started this blog to help others that are ill still be able to cook.  While recipes are great, kitchen tools are also needed.  I know I dusted off my crockpot after being sick.  I found I had more energy to cook in the morning that at dinner time.  It has been a godsend.  I also use my stand mixer, blender, mandolin slicer, food processor and any other gadget that makes my life in the kitchen easier.    So here are some cool things I've just found:

Jug Tipper for Cold Items

Tipper for hot items

Rolling Trivet: It has ball bearing under it so you just roll the pot around the counter without lifting

Jar Opener: I have the Oxo Good Grips version and I LOVE it

For those times when you have to cook from a seated position
 Most of these items I found at Peterson Medical  I haven't shopped their myself yet but they have lots of assitive technology for all sorts of things.  I've only listed a few of the kitchen things here.  There are items for other things such as bath items and wheelchair accessories.
I also love anything by Oxo Good Grips.  I have their garlic press and jar opener.
