With the Zipstrip Herb Stripper ($8), you’ll never avoid recipes that contain both rosemary and thyme again. If you’re someone who eats, you know that the taste you get from using fresh herbs is immeasurably better that of those that have been dried and bottled. But if you’re someone who cooks, you know that when it comes to preparing certain woody varieties of said herbs, nothing is a bigger pain in the ass. Thanks to the Zipstrip, this process has been made exponentially more convenient.
To use, simply insert the herb’s stem, root first, into a hole that is slightly bigger than its diameter, and pull. Just one quick step and the leaves have been removed, collected, and measured. Zipstrip is also top-rack dishwasher safe, so your cleanup can be as fast and easy as your food prep was.
