What's your secret kitchen "cheat" tool?
Mine is this salad chopper I got from Pampered Chef: http://bit.ly/n4wY15 It's like a double-scissor-spoon. Sometimes I don't like chopping with a knife, so I just cut. So sue me!
I'd never bring it out when I'm having guests over though. I'm curious -- What's the kitchen tool that you can't live without (but would never admit to using)?
