I love to make soups in the winter, but what a hassle pulling out the blender everytime I wanted to make a creamy soup. The Suisinart SmartStick Hand Blender makes it much easier.

I use these thongs to remove eggs when hard boiling them and also for salad. I'm sure there are many more uses for them other than spaghetti.

I've used my Herb Snips twice and they do a great job but are not that easy to clean. One must use a toothpick or something similar to remove some of the remaining herbs.
