Shopping Cart: Staybowlizer, ‘No-Potato Passover,’ WWID towels, vegetable


The Staybowlizer, like another set of hands. (Deb Lindsey/For The Washington Post)

KITCHEN HELPER: This sturdy, 83 / 4-inch silicone ring called the Staybowlizer was a hit at the recent International Housewares Show in Chicago, where it earned an Innovation Award. Use it to secure a makeshift double-boiler; under a bowl when whisking vinaigrettes and batters; as a trivet; and as a second pair of hands for anyone who’s less than steady in the kitchen. It is oven-, microwave- and dishwasher-safe. $24.99. Available on Amazon.com and TheGrommet.com. For more information, go to www.staybowlizer.com.

PASSOVER, SANS SPUDS: Brooklyn author Aviva Kanoff’s impetus was to reduce carb intake during the Jewish holiday and emerge victorious from what she calls “a cooking rut.” Her “No-Potato Passover: A Journey of Food, Travel and Color” (self-published, 2013) features 88 recipes that are easy and globally inspired. $$29.99. Available on Amazon.com and via www.nopotatopassover.com.

WASH ’N DRY HUMOR: Inspirational flour sack dish towels, 27 by 31 inches. We hear that even the Barefoot Contessa’s publicist bought a few. $16 each. Order online at www.facetofacedesigns.com.

VEGETABLES AL DENTE, AND CRISPED: There are several veggie varieties of cholesterol-free Mrs. Miller’s Homemade Noodles, but the broccoli-carrot combo would be especially nice for an Easter table. 14 ounces, $3.99. Lightly salted Purple Sweet Potato Chips made in Pennsylvania Amish country will stand up to the firmest dip. $9.59 per pound. Both items available at Buckland Farm Market, 4484 Lee Hwy., New Baltimore, Va. 540-341-4739. www.bucklandfarmmarket.com.
