What Are Your Most Multi-Tasking Kitchen Tools?

Your Fall Kitchen Cure assignment this final week is to restock your pantry and replace any tools that you need. Of course we're not recommending, though, that you run out and stock up on lots of gadgets. No, if you need a new Dutch oven or cast iron skillet, this is the time to get it. And for those of us who are looking to expand our kitchen arsenals a little more, we're curious what your most useful, most multi-tasking kitchen tools are! Other than obvious candidates like the wooden spoon and the metal mixing bowl, we probably reach for our Microplane more than anything. We use it to grate garlic, ginger, cheese, and zest. We have also heard that some people love their box graters for grating everything from onions to potatoes to butter.

What about you? What's the most multi-purpose, multi-recipe, multi-tasking tool in your kitchen?
