Mymouné Pomegranate Molasses
I discovered this Pomegranate Molasses from Mymouné through a Cambridge restaurant called Moona; the Lebanese company makes all of its products by hand in small batches, and their pomegranate molasses is the sharpest and brightest I have ever tasted. The bottle will last a long time, and it is so much better than the sweeter, less balanced supermarket products. It's a a powerhouse ingredient used throughout the cooking of the Middle East and the Caucasus region that I guarantee you'll love. — Christopher Kimball
Cuisipro Box Grater
This box grater features four cutting sides—coarse grate, medium grate, fine grate and slice—all made from etched metal, which increases each blade’s sharpness and durability, and they won’t buckle under pressure. And unlike other brands, which often have a thick frame of metal or plastic between each cutting surface, Cusipro extends each of their grater's cutting surfaces to the edge: more area means easier slicing, quicker grating and less work, so you can tackle soft foods like certain cheeses and sturdy veggies like carrots with ease. Plus, there aren’t any extra nooks and crannies for bits of food to get stuck in, making for easier cleanup. Its ergonomic top handle is coated in comfortable, nonslip rubber, and the grater has a rubberized detachable base that holds it steady, measures volume and collects the gratings. You can simply grate, measure, remove and dump directly into your pan without extra fuss.
Kona Safe/Clean Bristle-Free Grill Brush
No more worrying about sharp metal bristles that might scratch or fall into your grill or melted nylon bristles that can melt with too much heat: Kona's grill brush features a helix-coiled scrubber made of stainless steel wire, so it's highly effective for thick gas grill grates and thin charcoal grates as well as gentle enough for any material, even ceramic kamado grills. And the contoured handle is comfortable to hold with both hands, with nonslip textured finger grips to prevent slipping.
Burlap & Barrel Silk Chili
Softer and more vibrant than the stale chili flakes on grocery store shelves, these fruity chilies are sun-dried then stone-ground into flakes with a touch of sunflower oil and salt to preserve their soft texture. They have a bright medium heat and rich flavor reminiscent of sun-dried tomato.
