In the South, fixing home-made meals is how we show we care. But homemade doesn’t have to mean long, tedious prep work. Use these five time-saving tools and you’ll get dinner on the table faster without sacrificing from-scratch flavor.

MICROPLANE ZESTER/GRATER
“Grate garlic cloves or fresh ginger for fast flavor without the mincing.” $14.95; surlatable.com

CITRUS JUICER
“Place citrus, cut-side down, in the bowl of this juicer, and squeeze for more juice—and no seeds.” $14.95; surlatable.com

EXTRA MEASURING CUPS AND SPOONS
“Don’t lose your momentum by cleaning spoons and cups between uses. Just grab a fresh set to speed up hands-on time.”

FOOD CHOPPER/PROCESSOR
“This machine not only slices and dices but also shreds cheese and whips up pie crusts.” Models and prices vary; target.com

PRECUT VEGGIES
“Pass go and collect 20 extra minutes by picking up precut veggies and onions at the grocery store.”

    The Food Chopper Processor says it shreds cheese but I do not see a blade or grater
