25 Good Food Products and Kitchen Tools

Best of 2008

We are constantly testing out new products and looking for better tools for our kitchens. We try to avoid unitaskers and to focus on time-tested tools, but every now and then a really great new thing comes along. We review these and write about the classics every week, here at The Kitchn, and we like to cover our favorite food products too.

Here's a look back at 25 (or so) of the food products, gadgets, and kitchen tools that we wrote about in 2008.

The four products pictured above the fold are in bold below.
