Powerful yet simple, this cauliflower tool makes wrangling the tough vegetable surprisingly quick and easy. This handy gadget takes the hard work out of separating florets from stalk so your cauliflower and broccoli can go from vegetable drawer to dinner plate in a flash.
One of our favorite ways to save herbs is freezing them with butter or olive oil to use in skillet cooking later. You can use an ice cube tray from the dollar store to create little herbed starter blocks, but if you don’t have a lot of freezer space, the Chef'n SpiceCube Herb Freezer Tray is a lot better for storage. It features four different compartments plus a lid to keep different herbs separated. And the tray is stackable so you can buy multiple trays to store large batches of herbs easily.
