Do you have a few tools/gadgets that you use so often that you assume everyone else does too? Or did you acquire a tool that you love so much you wonder what you did without it? Maybe you use a common devise in an uncommon way?
I love my OXO tongs.
My metal bench scraper is used almost daily.
I threw out all but one of our grapefruit spoons because it's great for scooping out seeds and membranes of bell peppers and other fruits and veggies.
I love my taco shell holder, lined with paper towels to drain and shape pan fried shells and then to assemble tacos.
My squared off wooden spoons are probably the most used things in that drawer.
I actually feel affection for these humble items. Please share your kitchen favorites.
