Verge Favorites

The staffers of The Verge chat about the gear, entertainment, and tools that we use and enjoy on a day-to-day basis, whether it be games, kitchen gadgets, podcasts, work-from-home tech, or the latest streaming videos. These aren't necessarily the best for everyone, but as far as we are concerned, they are really fun, really useful, or both. See if you agree.

Garlic lovers, unite!

We recently published a roundup of some of our best-loved kitchen tools, but what it didn’t include was my absolute favorite: a garlic rocker that not only dices garlic easily, but looks like it belongs in the Museum of Modern Art.

That was listed in last year’s roundup, and because my partner and I use it constantly (and because I just recommended it to another Verge staffer), I thought I’d sneak a mention in.
