My all time favorite, at least so far, is my Pampered Chef garlic press. (I tried to post a URL again but I guess I still need a few more posts to be able to do that). It saves me so much time since I eat garlic in pretty much everything. When a recipe calls for 2 cloves, I put in 4 or 5. My garlic plants have started sprouting in my herb garden and I am especially excited for fresh garlic!

B'sgirl, I agree on the garlic press ... and that one in particular has a larger hopper than most, so elephant or multiple cloves are a breeze. Funny thought ... what I consider my favorite tools aren't necessarily the ones that get the most use. I can't remember a day when the kitchen shears or microplane weren't dirty, so those get the usage prize. Favorites come and go ... tough call, but today I really enjoyed my julienne peeler.

My mum would have loved this a few weeks ago when she decided to use the green mangoes that fell off my tree in a storm. There was some enormous amount of green mangoes she needed in this green mango chutney recipe and it was taking her ages to prep the flesh!! Maybe that can be her mother's day present so she will be ready for next year's green crop!!!
