Hutzler Food Saver

Hutzler Food Savers

Amazon

Cooking with fresh fruits and vegetables is much healthier than nuking a frozen meal or dialing for takeout, but recipes that call for just a pinch of lemon zest or a spoonful of diced onion can fill your fridge fast with half-used produce in plastic baggies.

These airtight storage containers, designed to resemble lemons, limes, garlic, tomatoes, onions, peppers, and grapefruit, solve that problem.

They keep food fresh, cut down on plastic waste, and eliminate peek-and-shriek—you'll know in a glance what's inside.

Sur La Table Microplane Herb Mill

Sur La Table Microplane Herb Mill

Sur La Table

Doctors have been telling us for years that we need to cut back on salt. Too much of it can lead to high blood pressure, and in the short term it can cause bloating (ugh). There's just one problem: Our taste buds have become addicted to salt, and if we suddenly curb our intake they're liable to go on strike.

The solution? Replace your saltshaker with the Microplane Herb Mill, which makes it easy to mince fresh herbs directly onto food while cooking or eating. The flavor rush will help you—and your taste buds—break the salt habit.
