Being a great storyteller, she agreed to share her story with us about how the Rotito Rolling Board inspired her to try pita bread for the first time.

Introducing "My Spice Sage" for all your spice needs!

Here at GitaDini we love spices! The inspiration behind the GitaDini Yin Yang Storage Bin Set was the traditional Indian Spice Box a.k.a. Masala Dabba. Pretty much every Indian household owns at least one Masala Dabba, this is where the spices for everyday cooking are kept. The typical Masala Dabba is round, made from stainless steel and holds about 6-7 spices.

Gita, our designer at GitaDini decided to spice things up a little (pun intended) and create a modern Masala Dabba that holds more spices, looks great on every counter top and through its Yin Yang shape reminds the cook that balance and harmony are two great ingredients to every dish.

The GitaDini Yin Yang Storage Bin Set comes with 12 small stainless steel containers to store your spices in. All you have to do is to decide which 12 spices you'd like to add!

MASALA CHAI

A week ago I was contacted by a company called GITADINI.

They wanted me to review their 2 Quart Straining Saucepan/Teapan. For an avid tea drinker like me, reviewing this Teapan seemed like the perfect thing to do and the moment it arrived, I couldn’t wait to make my next cup of tea. Its made of Stainless Steel that is non reactive and boils efficiently with a capsulated bottom to evenly distribute heat.The built-in strainer strains tea leaves,tea bags,sauces,vegetables,pasta without needing a separate colander or strainer. Its perfect for boiling water,heating milk or tea,cooking pasta or vegetables,melting butter or chocolate and blending and straining sauces.
