Father’s Day Kitchen Gifts San Diego Plumbers Recommend
Lots of San Diego fathers turn veggies, grains and meat into culinary masterpieces. A backed up sink can bring their braising, glazing and grilling to an expletive-filled halt, however.
Keep dad on pace by getting him these gourmet-enhancing Father’s Day gifts. We are proud to reveal that the family-oriented San Diego plumbers at family-owned Perry Plumbing include a few gourmet chefs! We hate to arrive to find a beautiful meal stopped dead in its tracks when one of these gadgets would have kept sauces at a low boil and meats searing deliciously. These Father’s Day kitchen gadgets may seem subtle, but they will surprise and thrill the dad who loves to cook.
A Variety of Sink Strainers
While we cover what to keep out of the garbage disposal and sink drain here, getting a variety of fun sink strainers gives dad more incentive to help keep drain lines clear. Where Blanco offers the most elegant, contemporary sink strainers in many styles, companies like The Elegant Sink Strainer and Pekeatzu Rescue have the whimsical ones that will please the gardener, pet lover, fisherman and more. Roosters for a rustic kitchen or a shell for a seaside cottage add a little bling to the sink.
Long-time San Diego plumbers, we love seeing our clients customizing their kitchens. After all, bedrooms and bathrooms should not get all the accessories. Decorative sink strainers and mats are the way to go for both dad’s heart and enhancing your kitchen’s overall look.
Sink Liners or Mats
If dad is a gourmet chef, chances are he loves the tools he works with as well as the grass-fed meats and organic vegetables he chooses so carefully. The sink is the center of food preparation. If he has a stainless steel or porcelain sink, a plastic sink liner or mat will keep sharp knives from chipping and scratching the sink. The sink liner also protects delicate dishes and stemware when they slip from hands.
Small, Tasteful Compost Bin for Kitchen
While it is easy for the rushed chef to accidently just toss them into the disposal, stringy veggies, rice, egg shells should go into the trash or the compost. Compost pots for beside the sink (as close to the disposal as possible) keep dad from this mistake and ending up with a jammed or clogged disposal. These small portable containers serve as short term storage of food scraps. Once full, dad empties the contents into the backyard compost bin or trash.
Some experts assert that 30% of kitchen waste can be composted. Help the environment while adding a little spark to dad’s kitchen with anything from a stainless steel model to many beautifully decorated ceramic versions. As San Diego’s family plumber, we appreciate seeing these little bins beside the sinks we visit. They help the garbage disposals we install last longer!
Reusable Grease Keepers
Most committed cooks know not to just dump a pan full of bacon grease down the sink. This viscous material cools and congeals in pipes, attracting bacteria and ants and causing clogs. And yet, nobody likes to scramble for an empty tin or plastic container can to throw the excess cooking grease in either.
Grease Keepers look a lot better than that grease-filled old bean can on the counter The fine stainless steel mesh strainer also maintains the purity of oil and grease so dad can reuse that oil for another time if he wants. Reusing leftover grease also helps the environment. The stoneware grease keepers we have seen are also designed to last for hundreds of uses and fit well in the refrigerator. Grease disposal problems solved!
