Cooking ground meat is easy enough that even the biggest kitchen klutz can do it. Whether you’re sautéing a pound of ground pork in a pan or mixing a hamburger recipe in a bowl, though, working with ground meat requires a whole lot of chopping and turning. And using a spatula to do that can get tiring. You need a better tool for the job and that would be the OXO Good Grips Ground Meat Chopper.
A custom-designed cooking utensil, it lets you easily break up ground meat, making it especially handy when cooking in a pan, as it ensures everything cooks evenly. Of course, it should make mixing a big bowl of that meat equally easier, too, so you can use it for a whole lot of recipes, from chili and meat sauce to meatballs and shepherd’s pie.
The OXO Good Grips Ground Meat Chopper is a three-bladed paddle that makes it ideal for easily stirring a big pile of ground meat (you simply rotate it). Wide blades allow it to scoop up a large amount of meat with every turn, while a durable construction allows you to use it to break apart partially defrosted chunks of ground meat right on the pan. Features include a soft non-slip handle, rounded blade edges for safely reaching the corners of pans, and one silicone blade for scraping food on cookware edges. And, yes, you can use it to break up most anything that sticks together in clumps, like brown sugar and frozen soups.
Available now, the OXO Good Grips Ground Meat Chopper is priced at $11.99.
