Because my sister has one
tare scale was before my visit to Norma Jean's. It allows me to weigh things in grams or ounces, and once I put the item that will hold my food on the scale I can zero it out and weigh just the food. So cool, and it wasn't even very expensive! I already had one of the kind with a dial, but it just isn't very accurate. I use my new one every morning these days.
spiralizer. You take whatever item you want to render into spaghetti-sized whorls and slap it between the blades and that thing on the right, turn the handle and you've got zucchini spaghetti or raw beets into perfect little strips! We used it every single night I was there when we made salad, and I'm planning to use it tonight with a beet I got at the Farmers' Market yesterday.
Of course, Norma Jean's kitchen is replete with lots of other tools I didn't get a chance to see or use, and it's probably just as well. I'm looking forward to incorporating these tools into my kitchen and need to keep my partner from being TOO overwhelmed with all the new stuff!
