We're generally in awe of cooks who whip up meals without a mess, and these two brilliant products are certainly going to help us master the same skill. The soup socks are mesh bags which hold meats and vegetables as you boil them in soups. The herb sachets are small cotton muslin bags for spices, so you can toss together all your aromatics and herbs, and throw the bag into your pot of soup. It'll flavor your dish the same way as adding loose spices, and you can fish out the bag with no muss. We like it especially for things like bay leaves and cinnamon sticks.
