Serious Eats Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers, $20 and Under
Yesterday we began our annual Serious Eats Crazy Good Gift Guide run up to the holidays with $10 and Under Stocking Stuffers. Today, the $20 and Under Stocking Stuffers edition.
Swissmar Peelers: For the herbivore in your life, this trio of veggie peelers can accomplish any task. The straight blade peels ordinary vegetables or scrapes them into a garden of ribbon confetti. The serrated peeler scalps tomatoes and mangoes without so much as a bruise. And the julienner makes spaghetti of zucchini for the perfect primavera. $15 for a set of three colorful peelers, from Amazon.com
Corn Zipper: Breathe a breath of summer into the stocking of your farmstand friend. As insinuated by the name, the corn zipper zips the kernels off the cob BEFORE you cook it. Rip off the husk, tear off the silk—and now, with all defenses down, corn no longer stands a chance. $12.95 for different versions, from Williams-Sonoma, Crate and Barrel, and Amazon.com.
Olive and Cherry Pitter: They say life is like a bowl of cherries; wouldn't life be better if it was a bowl of pitless cherries? Extract the stones from olives and cherries with class, using this tool instead of your teeth and a spittoon. $10, from Amazon.com.
