This gorgeous little tool offers an ultra simple way to incorporate fragrant herbs and spices to your favorite dishes. “Where do I get one of those?” was the first thing that most culinary and shop staff members exclaimed when they saw this on my computer screen.
Slightly larger than a tennis ball, the infuser is made from stainless steel and silicone. in order to infuse and remove herbs (a tricky process), most adept cooks have traditionally bundled them and employed kitchen twine to tie them together, . Now you can simply remove the silicone grommet, drop in your herbs and spices, and place into the pot. The handy lanyard and perforated tip allows you to either attach it to the side of a thin pan, or wrap and snap it to a panhandle for quick and easy removal.
Our staff has used tea infusers that incorporate many of the same design elements, but this is the first product we’ve found tailored specifically for herbs and spices. More than anything, the beautiful, sleek design is what is so attention grabbing.
The infuser is dishwasher safe for easy cleanup, and can withstand temperatures up to 240°F. Currently, it is available exclusively through the Museum of Modern Art’s Design Store and sells for $28.00 plus $7.95 shipping and handling. This is the perfect gift item for the cook who has everything.
