Norway’s best-selling kitchen tool caught our attention for good reason and we thought you might like it too… An innovative kitchen utensil that helps to quickly and easily break up minced meat in a frying pan or saucepan, Hackit Minced Meat Chopper has taken its home nation by storm, and quite rightly so.
Strongly made, so it can withstand a Viking’s grip, and heat-resistant up to 210°C and it won’t scratch your favourite non-stick pans. It’s completely safe to use and we think you’ll find yourself using it for all sorts of cooking and baking mixtures other than just meat.
At the base of the ergonomic handle are five ‘blades’ fanned out in a kind of propeller pattern – it looks a little odd, but it’s brilliant at its job of breaking up lumps of mince or the vegetarian equivalent while you’re cooking, and the flat-bottomed blades help it stand on its own wherever you want it to wait until you’re done cooking.
Not just for spaghetti Bolognese, lump-free ragu for lasagne or a panful of chilli, fans of Asian cuisine tell us it’s their favourite tool for ensuring a fine pork mince is broken up correctly to suit a dish such as Dan Dan noodles. It’s brilliant for anyone who likes to batch-cook for the freezer and can help you to crush potatoes, smash an avocado in seconds or make a coarse tapenade – and it will also mix up frozen vegetables and break up biscuits for a cheesecake base – you’ll wonder how you managed before.
Made from a combination of durable glass fibre and polyamide, it’s BPA free.
