There's been a lot of silicone discussion this week - pros, cons, like and dislike of the stuff for baking.
Here's one silicone product that we couldn't help but notice as looking very helpful. We do a lot of grinding spices and chopping herbs, and these tiny ingredients have a tendency to fly everywhere as we cook. These mini silicone bowls are flexible, letting you funnel spices or chopped ingredients into a pot. We think they'd make our mise-en-place just a little bit easier. $3.99 for a set of four at Amazon.
