The Lakeland kitchen gadget Kirstie Allsopp swears by is flying off the shelves – and it’s under £30!

Where has this been all our lives?

Today’s kitchens are packed full with gadgets designed to do everything from making soup in seconds to regulating the temperature of our perishable goods. But while some of these nifty devices are teaming with a whole host of tech, others achieve amazing results with minimal design.

And one such product that fits into the latter category is the Zyliss Easy Pull Manual Food Processor. It seems that the Location, Location, Location presenter is all about rotation, rotation, rotation! Yes, Kirstie Allsopp raved about this multi-functioning product in a recent Tweet, and many social media users rushed to agree with the star.

One gushed: ‘I agree Kirstie, it’s amazing. I saw a demo for it at my local garden centre at Christmas & bought one. It was brilliant. Went back the next day to buy another one for my daughter. It makes homemade pesto & salsa in literally seconds, chops everything, inc nuts.’

While another simply stated: ‘It is the best kitchen gadget ever. Had mine for over a year.’

And for the eco-conscious among us, the good news is that this gadget uses nothing but good old-fashioned elbow grease to power it. Yet somehow it still ‘creates results as precise as an electric chopper’.

We’ve got visions of channelling our inner chef and whipping up chunky salsas, cauliflower purees and more, to give our meals that extra pizzazz.
