Pikachu Kitchen ceramic trivet is perfect for hot pots and decoration

As a cooking enthusiast, I am always looking to add new accessories to my kitchen. Trivets are one of those items that are so easy to overlook and not needed when moving numerous hot pots around. Having never tried a ceramic trivet before (I have dozens of cloth and rubber ones), I was nervous about durability and useability when using the Pokemon Pikachu ceramic trivet.

However, I was delighted to find that the large trivet works perfectly with any pot I set it on and also provided a better back between the bottom of the heated vessel on the counter. Additionally, when not used to house hot pots, propping it up on the counter makes for a delightful decoration. As $12.99 USD, I would be excited to add a few more of these to my trivet drawer.

Pikachu Kitchen ceramic spoon rest & spatulas are a stirring combo

Like the Pokemon ceramic trivets, the Pikachu ceramic spoon rest is heavyweight and durable. It has an elegant neck for resting the hand of any large spoon or spatula, with a deep channel that ensures the selected utensil won’t slide out and slop hot soup or grease all over the cooktop.

What I especially like about the $12.99 USD spoon rest is that it is perfect for teaching kids kitchen safety. My son loves to help cook, and if I set the spoon rest close, I can ask him to give the spoon to Pikachu when we aren’t using it. This not only makes kitchen safety fun but greatly improves the chaos of my cook space.

Additionally, the $19.99 USD Pokemon spatulas are fantastic. The silicon paddle is firm and thin, making it perfect for cleaning bowls of cake batter or whipping up an egg. The paddle slides away from the plastic handle for hygienic cleaning, ensuring no mold or grime will build up in the handle. My only worry is that the adorable Pikachu faces on the paddles will fade with washing. Because of this, I have only hand-washed them, avoiding the heat of the dishwasher.

Pikachu Kitchen aprons are perfect for wearing & for photos

Marshtomp Onigiri staged on a Pikachu apron

The Pikachu Kitchen aprons are easily one of the cutest ways to dress for success while cooking. The $34.99 USD aprons are made of sturdy material, have an adjustable neck strap, and a pocket for phones, kid snacks, or spoons. I personally kept sticking my hand towel into it for quick drying.

While it is fantastic for keeping grease off clothing, I also ended up using the Pika-printed fabric as the backdrop for my Pokemon Day Marshtomp Onigiri, which we were trying out from the “My Pokemon Cookbook: Delicious Recipies Inspired by Pikachu & Friends” cookbook. While my onigiri looks a bit smudgy, the apron background added the perfect flare.

My only frustration with the Apron is the color. While white is classy and looks, great fresh out of the package, stains from tomato sauce, grease, and soup are sure to do a number on them. While they are sturdy enough to bleach, they won’t age well once the kitchen chews them up.
