Microplane grater –grate chocolate, nutmeg, ginger, cheese blocks, and garlic with this universal but often-forgotten tool.
Pepper mill –ever have that waitress at the restaurant come up and ask you if you want “fresh ground pepper”? Doesn’t that stuff taste much better than grocery store bought pepper? You can give and experience that same pepper freshness in your own kitchen with one of these. If you get two, you can have one for white pepper, too.
Different colored cutting mats –now why would you need these? These help you be more sanitary in your kitchen by color-coordinating your cutting, slicing, and dicing so that you don’t mix ‘n’ match the bacteria! Little things mean a lot in a successful kitchen. These are a great organizational tool.
Digital kitchen timer –you can get more than one of these, and some of them come with dual timers anyway. Forget your worries about burning up the roast.
