#5 A zester is worth the space it takes up in the utensil drawer
“When life gives you lemons … zest them thoroughly and save it in the freezer,” Oliver once tweeted. “Never waste lemons, you guys!” The best way to get that zest, according to Oliver, is by using a fine grater (also known by its brand name, the Microplane). Unlike a box grater, writes Oliver, this handy gadget slices “instead of tearing or shredding, conserving the aroma and adding more flavor [to your food].” Use it to zest citrus fruit or to sprinkle Parmesan over pasta."

Sometimes it’s worth recycling an older kitchen gadget to spring for an updated version of the handy tool, especially if it’s from Microplane, known for its razor-sharp blades that tackle zesting, grating and slicing with ease. Recently the company introduced the 2-in-1 Core and Peel, a device with an ultra-sharp sawtooth blade that quickly and precisely cores apples and pears and then extracts the core. A straight edge blade that’s built into the soft-grip handle can peel the fruit. You can also use the peeler for carrots and potatoes. A protective storage cover is included for the peeling blade. When turning out pies or tarts or mixing up a batch of applesauce, you’ll be relieved to find the tool in the kitchen drawer.
