IT can also be used for cheese. I dont have one yet, but used one while visiting a friend. IT was about 10" long and had a great handle on one end. Its really sharp, so you get the zest of a lemon or orange in seconds.
You might like my new favorite that I picked up a couple weeks ago. Have you seen those Oxo Good Grips measuring cups that you can read liquid measurements from above? Well they make a little bitty one that measures tablespoons (up to four I think, a quarter cup?) and it is perfect for measuring salad dressing! Fits great in my lunch bag and is a nice item to help me keep track with my "eating program"
It has to be my Pampered Chef garlic press. I love that thing so much.
I also like our hand can opener . . . . . it's one of those safety can types where the whole top gets cut off so you have no sharp edges or have to worry about the yucky lid falling onto the food inside the can.
I love my silcone spatulas (I got mine at Williams-Sonoma, but you can get them just about anywhere these days). I use them for baking, cooking, you name it. They have flat ones and one with a spoon look.
