1. Microplane Zester
2. Bench Scraper
3. Immersion Blender
Here’s why I’m certain you’ll use them as much as I do:
Because the amount of citrus zest that most recipes call for is fairly small, you may be tempted to skip it….but please don’t! Adding this single, small ingredient to a dish tucks in SO MUCH flavor and brightness, all with ZERO fat and calories! Invest in a Microplane zester and in seconds you can have the fresh citrus zest you need to make your recipes pop.
This dull-edged, flat metal blade was first created for working with dough, but is also a super efficient tool for a cutting board. Once you’ve chopped fresh ingredients, such as vegetables or herbs, use your bench scraper to make short work of picking them up to transfer to your cooking vessel. You will also find a bench scraper to be a handy tool for cutting bar cookies into serving squares.
This handheld small appliance will win your heart with its convenience and ease of use. Use it for small kitchen tasks that don’t quite require a full-sized food processor or blender, such as making a batch of vinaigrette or to quickly smooth a pot of cooked squash for making soup or bisque. I use mine all the time for making applesauce!
