Microplane Butter Blade and Zester-Grater Set
We propose a toast.
Sometimes, looks can be deceiving, e.g. this tiny, no-frills stainless steel spreader with multiple tricks up its sleeve. It can transform hard, cold butter into golden ribbons that’ll melt right on your morning english muffin, no problem. Wanna give your scones a cute little curl of butter? Use the tip of the blade at a 45 degree angle and you’ll have a fancy topping in seconds (oh hey, it works on cream cheese too!) Plus, it’s coming as a set with Microplane’s infamous zester/grater. The blade is photo-etched in super-sturdy stainless steel so it won’t rust and stays sharp for a long, long time (like, at least 5,000 lemon meringue pies, long).

You'll be hearing from the staff at FOOD52 every week in Too Many Cooks, our group column in which we pool our answers to questions about food, cooking, life, and more. The New York Times Dining section ran a piece this week about those kitchen gadgets that you buy thinking they'll make your life easier -- oyster knife, bread machine, milk frother -- but that end up gathering dust in a cabinet. But sometimes more is more, even if those pickle tongs take up too much space in your cutlery drawer. Here are our favorite kitchen utensils -- the ones we won't give up in favor of a simpler life. It's funny how so many of our answers are about tools that are just so "satisfying" to use! Click through for pitters, slicers, and choppers galore.
