Simple Tip: Make Your Egg Slicer a Multi-Tasker, Part 2

A couple of weeks ago YumSugar pointed out that you can use an egg slicer to cut more than just a perfectly hard boiled egg. She recommended using it for slicing strawberries or mushrooms, but forgot to mention my favorite use for this wonderful multi-tasking tool: cutting fresh mozzarella for caprese salads. Fresh mozzarella is quite soft, making it difficult to slice with a knife, but with an egg slicer all you have to do is separate the cheese into pieces.

Got a kitchen tool that you turned into a multi-tasker? Share your secrets with us below!

Rasp grater is not just for cheese or citrus rind...use it to grate ginger and garlic too. You'll get silky smooth ginger with no fibers and full garlic flavor.

This is one of those "why didn't I think of that" situations! Those are some awesome ideas for alternate uses of an egg slicer.

This makes me want an egg slicer just for the other reasons listed!!! Multi-tasting tool? Hm, I don't own any lids for oven-proof dishes so when I want to keep the moisture in something like when making my chicken breast/onion/potato/carrot dish :) I throw a muffin pan (upside down) over the top when cooking.

I'd have to say my cheese grater is my biggest multi tasker. I have one of the old fashioned flat ones, and I use it as a strainer when I boil pasta by holding it up against the side of the pot and pouring the hot water off through it. I also use it as a potato ricer, and I use the "fancy shred" panel as a texture for making marzipan fruits. hehhe.. I also use it to reach things on high shelves in the kitchen, but I can imagine many people use all sorts of strange things for the same reason. *smile* -A.

I've used my egg slicer to cut strawberries and mushrooms before, but fresh mozzarella never even crossed my mind! Brilliant!

Gah, I need to get one of those. They're quite brilliant, who would have guessed you could use them for other things than eggs.
