Oxo Good Grips Salad Spinner
Easy to use, store, and clean, the sturdy Oxo bests all other spinners for all-round performance. Even parsley dries without bruising in its coddling basket, and the spinner’s pump easily outlasts a string pull.
Kuhn Rikon Vegetable Peeler
Though “wildly inexpensive,” this Swiss-made implement is “by far the preferred peeler in professional kitchens.” The handle could be sturdier and the blade more rust resistant, but the edge cuts like a dream and never dulls.
Norpro Herb Keeper
“Looking to extend the longevity of fresh, fragrant herbs?” The best herb keeper around has a deep base and easy-to-see water-level markings. Sturdy and spacious, it’s also slim enough to fit on a refrigerator door.
