We have spent a great deal of time
covering some of our essential kitchen tools
, as well looking at lovely galleries of our readers' favorite kitchen things
. It seems like the best of these tools are the ones that pull double duty. In my kitchen, it's a metal skewer. It tells me when cakes and baked goods are done, removes stuck on food from dried dishes, whisks a single egg without sloshing, clears food from drains and more. What tool makes life in your kitchen doubles up to make your life as a cook a little easier?We mentioned before that our skewer is our favorite tool that isn't found in a tool box
and we actually have additional metal skewers that sit with our paintbrushes (for other non-food related uses). So now we want to know, what item in your kitchen would you be lost without? Leave us a comment and let us know!
