The Microplane Herb Mill

I know it only seems like mincing piles of fresh herbs feels like it takes forever. It isn't that tough a task, but it can be made easier and faster with the Microplane Herb Mill. Just fill the mill with fresh, leafy herbs and with a twist of the handle, they are minced and ready to be added to all sorts of recipes. Add to tasty sauces, salad dressings, curries, soups, or just sprinkle over a finished plate as garnish. Best of all, the Microplane Herb Mill keeps your fingers away from blades.

The Microplane Herb Mill uses dual-action scissor blades to slice through herbs without tearing or otherwise destroying their delicate leaves. The blades are stainless steel and the rest of the mill is plastic, so you can run it through the dishwasher. The mill is available for $19.95 from Williams-Sonoma.
