Some recipes don't fully come together until a sprinkle of fresh cilantro or a dash of fresh basil is added. Herbs are an important part of so many dishes, and if you're growing some yourself, a lead herb stripper is the most useful tool you can own.

Chopping ingredients can be the most time consuming part of any meal and this stainless steel, dual-purpose tool helps you strip and chop any leafy greens or herbs you may need. The tool can be used for kale, chard, collard greens, thyme, basil, rosemary, and more, and there are labeled holes on the edge that correspond with what herb works best. All you have to do is place the stem inside of the correct hole and pull it through to release all of the leaves.

Then, once you have the leaves separated or if you have other fruits and veggies you need for the dish, you can remove the protective cover to reveal a blade that can be used to finely chop or mince your other ingredients. The product has over 300 reviews on Amazon and an average of 4.3 stars out of five.

One user even said that having this in your kitchen will encourage you to use fresh herbs in your meals more often than before because of how easy it is to use. "The day I got it I tried parsley, cilantro, and thyme. it just feels like a more effective way to remove the leaves then hand stripping. To get the best Results I just feed the stem through the absolute smallest hole it will fit in. Definitely worth the price, and super sturdy and small to store," they wrote.

Just imagine the possibilities: fresh parsley on potatoes, Chipotle's cilantro lime rice, lemony chard...need I go on?
