|No matter what your skill level behind the stove, you can at least look like you know what you're doing in this halter-style apron, $36, in a vibrant print with matching oven mitt, $10, and kitchen towel, $8; all from Plum (5430 Magazine St., 897-3388).|
The tiny razorlike edges on this Microplane grater, $14.99, are formed by a special process called photo-etching that uses a chemical to dissolve the holes, leaving edges that finely slice your food instead of tearing or shredding it. The slider attachment, $4.95, protects your hands and lets you safely grate every bit of your ingredients. Both are from The Savvy Gourmet (4519 Magazine St., 895-2665).
