Microplane Chili Mill
Things are heating up.
So you want to spice up some homemade guac, or you’ve got a recipe that calls for an extra kick. Enter: this handy lil’ mill. It has a razor-sharp stainless-steel blade built right in, ready to grate its way through dried chilies of all kinds (it’ll even release essential oils for more flavor in the process). It’s a snap to use, too, since it’s got a silk-feel grip and gets the showers going with just the turn of the wrist. Another bonus? The spring inside knows just how much pressure to apply—so all you have to worry about is how high to crank the heat.
