Make it do more than measure olive oil. Its strong, sharp edges work well to scrape and scoop.
Dunk a chunk of ginger in water to wet it, then scrape the skin with the edge of a one-tablespoon measure (metal works best). The skin, and only the skin, will come off, making this method easier and less wasteful than using a paring knife.
Scoop Out Seeds
Scrape and remove seeds from halved cucumbers (key for tzatziki), bell peppers, and squash.
