More about this tool and where to get it after the break…

I first found out about this tool on the blog of Food, Family, and Fun by Amy, and two days later I scurried over to Williams Sonoma and snagged myself one. I have used it on both lemons and oranges and it does a fabulous job. In addition to being a zester it also has two different sized garnish cutters, as well as a scoring tool. If you do any amount of work with citrus fruits in the kitchen, this is definitely a must-have tool. It runs $12 at Williams Sonoma. Go out and grab one!

  2. I definitely need a microplane!

  3. What a spiffy little took.

  4. This looks great! Another item I need to add for my want list!
