I’d been surviving just fine without the Prep Taxi, but now that I have it, I don’t think I’d be willing to give it up. This handy tool—essentially a bench knife with sides—makes kitchen work flow just a little more efficiently. Now when I need to transfer a pile of diced onions or other chopped vegetables from cutting board to sauté pan, I can scoop them up with the 3-cup capacity Prep Taxi in one pass and drop them right into the pan. Even though this saves only a few seconds over my old methods of either the multiple hand-scoop approach or the bowl transfer maneuver (sweep the onions into a bowl and then empty the bowl into the pan), I truly feel like I’m moving quicker than before.
The Prep Taxi is $9.95 at Chefsresource.com.
