Love herbs? Of course: they are nature’s gift to cooks everywhere! But hate picking the little leaves off the stems? Yes … well, do we have a Cool Tool for you!
I’m sure we don’t have to tell you how the addition of fresh herbs can elevate a dish. Whether it’s cilantro in Salsa Fresca, thyme in an Adventure in Your Refrigerator Frittata, rosemary in Rosemary Popcorn, or oregano in Parmesan Crumbed Baked Chicken Thighs, fresh herbs add a ton of flavor without adding calories. But often there can be a moment’s hesitation before you go the fresh herb route because of the hassle - the extra effort - of separating the tasty herb leaves from the not-so-pleasant herb stems.
Well, you can now kiss that hesitation good-bye, and make that effort an easy step in preparing your dish. The HerbZipper from fusionbrands is a compact piece of 18/8 stainless steel with a silicone finger grip and 4 different-sized holes and a universal v-groove on the end (for larger stems) for different sized herb stems. Simply choose the hole (or groove) that fits your stem of your herbs, insert the stem, and pull from the other side to strip off the leaves. Measuring the quantity of leaves is made easy because the concave side will conveniently collect the leaves as you pull the stem through the hole. Or you can pull through from the other side to deposit the leaves directly into your dish.
The HerbZipper from fusionbrands is a compact well-designed combination of functionality and convenience: it makes easy work of removing leaves of all sizes from their stems. This is truly a Cool Tool! And it makes a great gift!
