While some kitchen tools and gadgets are worth the big investment, others don't require you to splurge to get your money's worth. Found in department stores, specialty shops, and appliance stores around the Metro are fun, quirky, and useful kitchen tools under P500 that are worth keeping in your kitchen. Check out these noteworthy picks:

1 Seed and Stem Remover by Progressive

Working with peppers can be a little painful if you are sensitive to the sting—use this handy seed and stem remover when you're prepping green finger chilies (siling pangsigang) and other peppers. The small end (with teeth) can be used to hull strawberries and take out tomato stems, while the longer end can be used for scraping out seeds from fruit or peppers.

2 Oven Thermometer by Excel Cooker

Whether you're using a gas oven or electric oven at home, it pays to have an accurate reading all the time. Bakers will love this tool! It doesn't cost much, either.

You'll have chopped garlic ready for cooking! It also includes a lid, so you can store chopped garlic in the refrigerator until you need it.
