In times past, a meat tenderizer was among the staples of every cook’s kitchen, but these gadgets fell out of favor. With the renewed interest in cooking from scratch, however, the OXO Meat Tenderizer has once again become a must-have item. The stainless steel construction on this meat tenderizer makes it a solid addition that will last for many years. The OXO meat tenderizer has two heads. The smooth head will flatten out meats for stuffing or quick cooking while the pronged end allows for meat to be “tenderized.” In other words, the meat is thinned, making it easier to eat – and also great for absorbing marinades! Add the OXO meat tenderizer to your kitchen for a little extra help in cooking delectable meat dishes.
