Kitchen Tools Chefs Can’t Live Without

One of Chef David’s favourite kitchen tools is his mini coffee grinder. Not just for grinding coffee beans, he uses it to fine-grind espresso for baking (adds a nice bitter touch and homogenizes with the flour better), grinding specialty peppercorns like Szechwan and making nut-paste purees (like peanut butter, pecan paste or almond butter). It’s perfect for the small jobs that large blenders just can’t reach, as it brings up the natural oils and helps create more stable emulsions. Also great for pine nuts in pesto!
