There is nothing easy about making a holiday dinner with a child underfoot. It’s the kind of thing that makes you seriously start thinking about drinking.
Fortunately the Inside Out holiday find for the kitchenista (or the male version – whoever that might be) does double duty. The Bosch Mixxo can mix up a killer margarita or mash those potatoes in record time.
The new gadget from appliance great Bosch puts those old-fashioned handheld mixers with the whisks that never fit quite right to shame. The long tube takes some getting used to, but once you remember this thing is cordless, across the kitchen you will go . . . to get everything done.
The Mixxo does double duty as a chopper or blender, letting you dice your onions or smash the ice you’ll need to turn out a smashing meal without finding the need to get smashed on your own later that night.
It comes with a long-lasting rechargeable battery and charger, so you won’t run out of power in the middle of cooking. Just remember to charge it the day BEFORE you go to cook (I learned that lesson the hard way). Or maybe you should buy this for the chef in your life . . . and charge it for them a day early (so you can take it out of the box and check it out for yourself). They’ll thank you for being so thoughtful. Tell them they can thank you with a drink.
