KD Finds: Kitchen Essentials for Fall Produce

Do you count apples, winter squashes, turnips and sweet potatoes among your favorite fruits and vegetables? We can't wait for the fall harvest! This week's KD Finds brings you the tools you'll need to prep your favorite seasonal produce.

1. Mrs. Anderson's Apple Peeler and Corer

With a simple turn of a handle, you can peel, core and slice apples and potatoes without breaking a sweat. It took us just seconds to churn out fruit ready for any pie, tart or fritter recipe.

2. Fabrikator Skrub'a gloves

Remove dirt without losing precious nutrients in the skin with these multi-purpose scrubbing gloves. We love how they are easy to use and clean (just pop them in the dishwasher)—and don't miss fumbling with scrubbing brushes at all!

$15 each adult pair and $10 each kid pair; chefini.com

3. Joseph Joseph Index Advance with knives

Color-coded chopping boards with index-style tabs help prevent cross contamination, and coordinating knives show you which is best for preparing each type of food. We'd love to have this stylish kitchen helper sitting pretty on our countertop!

4. Chef'N Palm Peeler

This smart kitchen gadget slides on your finger and fits in the palm of your hand for easy peeling. We found prepping carrots and parsnips to be a breeze!

5. Art and Cook Masher Chrome Dream

Mashing potatoes doesn't have to be dirty work. This chic kitchen tool boasts clean lines and a beautiful chrome finish and helps make light and fluffy mash effortlessly.
