It seems that a good wooden cutting board, like those sold at Wholesale Cutting Boards, along with quality cutting and carving tools, are irreplaceable.

1. Microplate Zester

This gadget is a classic, and it is immensely difficult to find a zester that can be as effective as the microplate. It can be used on everything, ranging from citrus to cheese. 

2. Salad Spinner

3. Garlic Press

For the cook that uses fresh garlic on a regular basis, the garlic press is a must have. It can cut considerable time off of mincing garlic in large amounts. The garlic press is also very effective for juicing tiny citrus fruit.
