Herb Tools to Help Add Freshness and Flavor to Your Cooking

Herbs are essential for imbuing all of your favorite recipes with the most important flavors of the dish and using fresh herbs is the key to really bringing those flavors out. In addition to our vegetable tools, Williams Sonoma carries an array of herb tools perfect for harvesting, processing and keeping herbs fresh for later use. These multi-tasking tools will help you get the job done quickly so you can spend more time enjoying your food.

Snips and Shears for Easy Harvesting

When it comes to harvesting herbs, specialized snips and shears are very convenient tools to have. You can also use them to quickly mince leaves. Razor-sharp, stainless steel blades make it easy to snip fresh sprigs off your herbs and deliver clean cuts that help the cuttings retain their essential oils. Ergonomic handle designs and slip-resistant grips ensure a comfortable and sturdy hold as you go about your work. Herb cutters can also be used to snip flowers and to cut delicate foods like scallions. They are likewise handy for other light-duty kitchen tasks like cutting twine.

Strippers, Mezzalunas and Mills for Simple Processing

Herb strippers are a basic tool that helps you get a lot more flavor from your herbs by separating the leaves from the stem. Just insert the stem through one of the holes and gently pull it through to remove the leaves. You will also find shears that have integrated strippers so that you can separate leaves from stalks as soon as you've cut them.

For home cooks who do a lot of herb mincing, a mezzaluna is one of the handiest herb tools to keep around. This traditional Italian tool features two curved blades that allow for quick mincing using a simple rocking motion. Another easy way to mince herbs for your favorite sauces and salad dressings is with an herb mill. Just place your herbs inside of the mill and turn the handle and you'll have large quantities of minced herbs in no time.

A good cutting board will provide you with a convenient and easy-to-clean work surface while you strip, mince and chop up your herbs. A mortar & pestle is also a handy kitchen tool to have for crushing herbs to use in pastas, pastes and pesto.

Storage Devices to Keep Your Herbs Fresh for Longer

Keep your herbs at their peak freshness with our herb keepers and savors. When preserved correctly, herbs like oregano, thyme, rosemary and dill will keep their fresh flavors and aromas for much longer. Streamlined designs make it easy to access your herbs when you need them and to refill your storage device in a snap. Herb keepers and savors are conveniently made to fit in the refrigerator door, saving you space. Specialized slotted trays keep herb stems in water and also allow the devices to be used for storing celery stalks and asparagus, making them a great addition to your kitchen.

At Williams Sonoma, we believe that the right tools can make life in the kitchen much easier and more enjoyable. The right herb tools make it a breeze to work with delicate and flavorful herbs, inspiring you to try new dishes and expand your cooking skillset. Find the best herb snips, shears, stripes, mills and keepers for all of your home cooking needs.
