Favorite Tools

Every kitchen needs two tiny implements — a melon ball scoop and a grapefruit spoon. The melon ball scoop is great for more than melon balls; it scoops up tiny tastes of all sorts of goodies. The grapefruit spoon has a sharp point and is excellent for cutting out the insides of tomatoes, avocados, potatoes, and many other foods.
