We couldn't resist sharing this brilliant program in the works in Portland over at The Kitchn. You know how you have wanted to tackle a specific recipe but keep filing it away for another day because you don't want to shell out the dough for a new gadget that might not get used very often? Start digging out those recipes.

Portland's creating a solution for this, it's a community kitchen tool library! Amazing idea, right? They already have a home and garden tool library, and even a home preserving/canning library. So, I suppose it's not too crazy of a concept to add the Southeast Community Kitchen Tool Library.
It's still in the planning stages but they "hope to offer pressure cookers, canners, knife sharpeners, bread machines, popcorn makers, grain mills--even place settings and ravioli crimpers!"
We can absolutely see how great this would be for mega weekend cooking sessions to load up the freezer and pantry. Or a great way to try out a tool to see if it's worth the investment. Love this idea!
