While we generally try to avoid kitchen uni-taskers, most of us have a small stash of specialized tools. They are different from kitchen to kitchen, varying by cooking style and focus. Well, if you're a baker or a chocoholic, here's a uni-tasker for you. This Chocolate Shaver ($16.95, Sur La Table) makes short work of curling and slivering your chocolate. It's easier than the other method for making chocolate curls that we showed you because this shaver is adjustable - from razor-thin to .13" for just the right thickness and delicacy of your chocolate shavings.
And actually - this isn't quite a uni-tasker! It shaves truffles and Parmesan too.
