New Additions from Le Creuset and Screwpull

Dutch Oven in Cassis Purple

Stoneware Bakeware Set in Violet

New Le Creuset colors, new Screwpull wine tools!

The complete collection of Cassis Purple, the newest color of iconic cookware from Le Creuset, is available now at Chef Tools. This is great news for any Le Creuset aficionado or any one with a purple kitchen. The deep, rich purple color is inviting and looks great with almost any type of food. The term "Cassis" is the French word for black currant, a plant which bears beautiful dark purple berries.

There are also many new Le Creuset pieces, like Star Ramekins (pictured right), a Dijon Mustard Jar, and stoneware Mugs just to name a few. The Star Ramekins are very unique and a perfect vessel for just about anything on the 4th of July.

Screwpull also has new barware items that are available now at Chef Tools.

The Vitesse Wine Decanter Aerator is a high-quality wine tool at a great price. It provides rapid aeration and comes complete with a beautiful crystalline glass decanter.

The Butler's Friend Wine Opener is a unique tool and great addition to any wine drinker's tool collection. It is designed with an ergonomic handle for comfort, has a built-in bottle opener, and is a master at extracting dry, brittle corks from older wine bottles. If you ever age wine at home, this tool will become your new best friend as it helps you easily replace old corks for new ones so your wine can continue to age.

NEW and Exclusive!

The Rosle Garlic Cutter - available exclusively at
The Rosle Garlic Cutter - available exclusively at
Come see our newest product!

The Rosle Garlic Cutter, available exclusively at Chef Tools, is an innovative new way to perfectly dice garlic in seconds. It works just like a pepper mill. Simply load peeled cloves into the chamber and twist to yield a uniform dice. The Rosle Garlic Cutter is made of solid 18/10 stainless steel for the durability you'd expect from a Rosle product. It also completely disassembles for quick and easy cleaning. The Rosle Garlic Cutter comes with a lifetime warranty and can be used with many other things like jalapenos, radishes and shallots. You can also store the Garlic Cutter in your refrigerator for quick garlic whenever you want to add some to your dish. The Garlic Cutter has also made a permanent spot next to our other grill-side tool favorites.

We had a blast (and were left with very full stomachs) after shooting video for this tool. We made steak, asparagus, chicken, garlic bread, pasta, and more. Check out all 5 videos for the Rosle Garlic Cutter by clicking the the "chef demo" button on this page to open the video player.
