    Michael Ruhlman, writer, cook and food opinionator, along with The Voice of Reason (aka LA journalist and author Amy Scattergood) discuss a few of the stupider tools people "invent" to steel people's money. A banana slicer? A Banana Slicer?!!! When didn't a butter knife do the trick for you?! I want to meet the inventor of the banana spoons. But here Ruhlman takes aim at a device that is in almost every American kitchen (his are in a box in his basement).

          • Plastics Recycling in Duff's Kitchen

            Plastics Make it Possible® has teamed up with celebrity chef and television personality Duff Goldman for the Duff's Kitchen video series, in which Duff shows you how plastics make it easy to help the environment by reducing food waste and packaging waste in the kitchen. In the first video, "Plastics Recycling in Duff's Kitchen," Duff demonstrates how to apply fondant icing to a cake while recycling more everyday plastic food packaging. He also showcases some of the durable, stylish cooking tools that can be made with the plastics you recycle. • Everything we do—even making a cake—has an impact on the environment. • We can lighten our footprint on the environment by choosing the right packaging, by recycling, and by using recycled products in the kitchen. • Many of the ingredients you need to make a cake come in lightweight plastics. Studies are finding that the weight of packaging material is a big deal. Lightweight plastic packaging delivers more goods with significantly less waste, energy use, and global warming potential. Without plastics: o Our energy use would increase by 80 percent, the amount of energy used by 91 oil supertankers. o Our global warming potential would increase by 130 percent, the equivalent of adding 15.7 million more cars to our roads. • After use, we can recycle all of these lightweight packages: o Bottles and caps, containers and lids. o Make sure you know what’s collected where you live, and recycle everything you can. • Plastic bags and wraps are recyclable too. o Zipper bags, wraps around cases of water bottles, bread bags, produce bags, grocery bags, dry cleaning bags, etc. can all go back to large grocery or retail stores that collect them for recycling. • Once recycled, plastic packaging becomes a resource to make all sorts of new products, from fabrics for clothing to plastic lumber to new packaging—and some of it comes right back into the kitchen as cooking tools. • And in some parts of the country, the energy from plastics that aren’t recycled is recovered to produce electricity for the community.

She founded The Pampered Chef in the basement of her home in Addison, Illinois in 1980. Ten years ago, the company was sold to Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway. For more than thirty years, The Pampered Chef and its sales force of independent consultants have been helping homemakers to provide their families with quick, delicious meals. Doris launched the company to provide professional quality kitchen tools to the everyday kitchen. Capitalizing on her knowledge of food preparation and her talent for teaching, Doris amassed an inventory of what she considered to be the essential home kitchen tools, promoted them under the Pampered Chef name and began showcasing them at in-home cooking demonstrations. The products gained popularity in the 1990s, even as many other party plan merchandisers were faltering due to changing lifestyles. The Pampered Chef expanded to Canada in 1996, to the UK in 1999 and to Germany in 2000. In 2002, Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Corporation acquired The Pampered Chef.
