Best "investment" piece

I recently sold about $30 of my cash and carry and rather than order similar items for re-sale, I'd like to order something for my kit.

What is your favorite "investment" piece in this range?

I know the cutting board with measuring cups is my favorite in that range ... I sell one at every show where I take it now!

Is there another piece in that range that jumps out at you? I was thinking of just getting a utility knife in the honing case, since my old "self-sharpening" one is not that sharp anymore ...

I love the tool turn about to take to shows because it keeps all the small tools in place and gives visual interest to the set-up. I also get the small versions of everything (small bar pan, small cutting board, small sheet pan, etc.) so that if I don't have to use it, I can still show it off but not kill myself lugging around the bigger and heavier versions. The chef's tongs and the citrus press are also my faves that I frequently use at shows. Oh and the rice cooker plus as well!

I like those examples ... however, I have most of those!

I was also thinking of the garlic slicer or something else ...

I have a lot of interest in the garlic slicer. People always askes me if it works good. I love the garlic slicer.
