The Season of Soup

The Season of Soup

The weather is turning chilly, and that means it is time to grab a stockpot and start cooking soup. Get equipped to prepare delicious seasonal soups ranging from just-like-Mom’s Chicken Noodle to a hearty Leek and Potato soup using these five essential soup-making kitchen gadgets from HIC, Harold Import Co.

HICFoodMill

From potatoes and squash to onions and beef, the HIC Food Mill (4603) lets you prepare ingredients for soup with just a quick turn of the large crank handle. Its large, 2-qt. capacity and sturdy 18/8 stainless steel construction helps force food through the blades directly into the pot or bowl. Comes with four blades.

HICSpatzleMaker

We love soup with dumplings, and the HIC Spätzle Maker (1618) is the perfect tool for making these tasty little German noodles and depositing them directly into the broth for cooking.

TWGGarlicpress

The World’s Greatest Garlic Press (93218) pulls double duty when effortlessly slicing and crushing garlic. And, the easy to clean design (a cleaning tool is included) makes it nearly fuss-free when removing excess garlic after use.

FoodScoop

The HIC Food Scoop (43751) transports chopped and diced ingredients during food prep. Designed to lay flat against work surfaces, and to scoop up foods and place directly into the soup stock.

NylonSlottedSpoon

HIC’s Oversized Slotted Spoon (70001) is made from FDA-approved virgin nylon that is heat resistant to 390°F. Use to stir soup or to scoop out extra vegetable chunks into the bowl. The ergonomic handle has a soft grip and a small hook on the back of the handle allows the spoon to hang on the side of the bowl, or serve as a spoon rest.
