This cool little gadget has 4 different sized holes on the handle that you can pull herbs through to easily and quickly strip the leaves.  I find it really useful for rosemary and thyme.

A Cool Food Storage Gizmo You Won’t Want To Live Without

I’m always looking for effective ways to store say, half an avocado, or the lemon that was left after cutting out a slice to go with some seafood.  Well my lemon storage (and lime, orange and avocado) troubles are done now that I have the [eafl id=233 name=”savil by dreamfarm” text=”Savil food saver”] from Dreamfarm.  This unique gadget saves a little bit to a lot of cut apples, oranges etc with its thoughtful design.


Unique Hinge Design On This Cool Food Storage Gizmo

Closed for storage, the Savel looks pretty unassuming:



Lift on the silicone retainer strap, and release the clasp to open:


The inside is the surface which will be against the cut side of your lime, apple or whatever. What makes the Savel such a cool tool in the kitchen is the hinge that lets this surface flex from fully closed to about a 270 degree angle….




This allows you to store a little:


Or half:


Or even a lot of a piece of fruit:


The smooth side rests on your cut edge keeping air out while the silicone band holds the fruit in place.  Now you can store half an avocado and actually enjoy it when you take it out of the fridge later!  This is one of those utensils that will be so useful and convenient you might want several.
