What Multi-Tasking Tool or Gadget Is Essential In Your Small Kitchen?

Calling all small-kitchen cooks! Inquiring minds want to know: what's your favorite pry-it-from-your-cold-dead-fingers multi-tasking specialty tool or gadget? We don't mean basic workhorses like the wooden spoon or cast iron skillet. We mean those not-totally-essential-but-still-really-useful-things that make cooking easier, faster, or more enjoyable.

This is a tricky category: small kitchen cooks have to be particularly discerning when it comes to gadgets. We know the basic, essential tools and equipment every cook should have in the kitchen, but we don't have room for trendy tools that don't live up to their hype. (So we especially don't have room for any of these.)

But if there is a gadget you rely on, and you cook in a small kitchen, we want to hear your recommendation! Do you rely heavily on your microplane? Is your immersion hand blender your best friend? Tell us!
