Kitchen objects with a story. Listen at your own whisk

Consider all the stuff in your kitchen. There’s at least ONE thing in there with a story behind it, right?

Today’s episode features conversations with eleven people about the stories behind their special kitchen utensil or appliance.


  • Susan Jane Bigelow of Enfield, Connecticut, has a very special spoon
  • Emily and Kevin Tracy of Windsor, Connecticut, have a utensil set that Emily borrowed long-term from an airline
  • Joy Braddock from West Hartford loves her spatulas
  • Debra Walsh from West Hartford, Connecticut, inherited a rolling pin that does more than flatten dough
  • Amanda Delaura of Manchester, Connecticut, walked a mile in heels with her KitchenAid mixer
  • Josh Lewis of New York, New York, cherishes his coveted veggie peeler
  • Cureen Blake of Hartford, Connecticut inherited tools to make Bammies 
  • James Hines is the Co-Owner of Cookshop Plus in West Hartford. He has a hand-me-down that is much loved, yet rarely used

  • Susan Jacobsen of Tyler, Minnesota, has a rare Rullepølse Press
