I have a similar nut chopper but it was not stainless bladed, so have replaced it with this model. For modest quantities of chopped nuts I've never found anything better. It chops more evenly without making a mess, and goes into the DW for cleanup.

This is not the oil dispenser of my dreams, but it will do until I find something better. I use one cruet for canola and one for EVOO.
Pros: - Adequate quantity of oil, not so much that it will get stale - Drizzles oil, doesn't pour a big stream. This works as I have non-stick cookware, so I'm never using a lot of oil anyway
Cons: - Glass – for oil storage, non-transparent would be better. This looks more like something for the table, not for the working cook. - Mouth opening is so narrow, I'm afraid the DW won't be able to really get it clean/rinsed properly. This is a major design flaw! There was no need to make this opening so narrow, and EVERY NEED to make this set properly DW-cleanable.

Pros: - Rims are very comfortable to hold onto - They stack neatly inside one another - They have covers. Covers! Real, actual, sturdy, covers. No more using plastic or foil to seal when I'm storing food in the frig! Much more ecological.
Cons: - Heavier than my original set (I have carpal tunnel). But clearly these will last forever. Feel like pro quality. - Covers are airtight but not water-tight; e.g., no turning them upside down and shaking.
