Another zester option for Russ. Unlike the microplane zester, this implement is strictly for zesting lemons or limes (and probably oranges too). But it comes in cute colors and has an ergonomic handle design.

This weekend I was talking to Russ about zesters, so this post is for him. This is a very verstile zester. It can finely grate cheese and citrus fruits. Plus it purees garlic and ginger.

This kitchen garden can provide you with herbs all year round. Even better, it tells you what it needs, so it is perfect for non-green thumbs like me.
Herbi can even communicate with you. Herbi was designed to autonomous operation but from time to time, averaging out to about once a month, the control units ph + , ph - , nutrient feed and water reserve must be replenished. Herbi lets you know when it needs assistance by lighting a light blue LED behind the corresponding icon on the Herbi control unit. After the needed solution is added, Herbi will detect the change and the light behind the icon will turn off.

I love to eat gnocchi, but I don't know much about making it, so I don't fully understand how this board works. The grooves supposedly help retain the sauce. It comes with a small rolling pin.
