These basic kitchen tools can be used in many different ways.




1 Seed and Stem Remover by Progressive


Working with peppers can be a little painful if you are sensitive to the sting—use this handy seed and stem remover when you’re prepping green finger chilies (siling pangsigang) and other peppers. The small end (with teeth) can be used to hull strawberries and take out tomato stems, while the longer end can be used for scraping out seeds from fruit or peppers.


Available in The Landmark, P199.75.
