The One-Handed Herb Infuser
The basis of so much quick cooking is coating food—poultry, meat, fish, vegetables, bread—with olive oil and then grilling, roasting or sautéing it. And though we know we could chop up sage, rosemary, thyme or another herb and add it to the oil for extra flavor, it's easy to skip that step when we're in a hurry. This wand makes it simple: Insert a whole herb sprig into the long, thin tube and then use the bushy part that sticks out the end as a brush for the oil. The herb flavor will transfer to whatever you're cooking. It's also handy for adding a finishing glisten to homemade (or just reheated) pizza.
