I am a firm believer in making your kitchen clutter free so that it makes it easier to cook. I know that some people love gadgets and want to cook with as many tools as possible. If you are a gadget lover, this post might not be for you. Look away, look away :)

For me, having a few great tools that are good for several things means my kitchen stays clean, uncluttered and easy to navigate.

Here are 5 things that (I think) you do not need in a streamlined kitchen.

1. The garlic press - it has one use. And it is a pain to clean. A much better option is a microplane zester. 
2. An avocado slicer - The only thing this tool is used for is slicing avocados. A knife works great as well.
3. An artichoke steamer - my mom actually got me this several years ago because we love artichokes. The problem was, we only had one and it took up a lot of space in the pot. I asked her before I got rid of it though. 
4. One click butter dispenser - I have no words for this one. HOWEVER, apparently there are several of my friends who love this gadget and would use it regularly. 
5. Strawberry Slicer - We eat a lot of strawberries in our house. It is probably our favorite fruit. But again, this contraption is a bit ridiculous.
