I have 2 of the small size cornstick pans that are fun to use to make crunchy corn shaped sticks. I decided to get 2 because a recipe would need more than one! They're fun to make for kids or company too!
Rosle Julienne Peeler : Superior in design, this peeler is the result of precise metal crafting and engineering. Rosle, located in the Bavarian alps of Germany, is a family-owned business, designing premium professional cooking utensils since 1903. Rosle is the recipient of international design awards for their innovations in kitchen tools. 18/10 stainless-steel alloy is rustproof, shockproof and resistant to pitting from household detergents. The firm-grasp and heavyweight combination distinguishes this peeler as a durable high-end tool. Cut away peels to discard unwanted texture and bitterness. Cut fine strips from vegetables and fruits for salads, stir-fries and garnishes. Convenient hanging loop. Stainless steel. Dishwasher-safe. Imported.
I love gadgets, so had to have this to try. I like the matchsticks it makes, but I have a hard time holding the vegetable with one hand and cutting using the other. With carrots, for example, I finally tried holding the end of the carrot with a fork against a cutting board. Then I was able to use the peeler. Maybe it's just me!

I receive one of these for Christmas this year. First I made panini using the grill plates, which turned out great. Then I switched to the griddle plates and made english muffins, which also fried up perfectly. It was so nice to be able to regulate the temperature to be "just right." Cleanup is so simple. Just pop off the plates and slip them into the dishwasher. Couldn't be easier! I can't wait to try this for, well, everything!

OXO Salad Spinner
OXO Salad Spinner : The OXO Salad Spinner washes greens and whisks away water instantly. One touch of a button starts the spinning motion. A second press stops it. Optionally, use as a colander or serving bowl. Product Features Stop and start at the touch of a button. Lid comes apart for easy cleaning. Basket can be used as a colander. Bowl can be used for serving. Available in green or clear.
When I got married 30 years ago, we were given a salad spinner for a wedding gift. It was the kind that had a knob on top that you had to spin round and round. Just last year I bought both sizes of this spinner (it comes in a mini size also for herbs, etc.). Now, all I have to do is press down on the center knob to make it spin. Yah! It's so much easier to use than the old way! Mine came with a separate lid so the bowl could be used as a container. I can't tell if it still does from the description.

These 4" spoon handles and narrow bowls are designed to fit easily into any spice container. 18/8 stainless-steel spoons will last a lifetime! Features both English and metric measurements. Six-piece set includes 1 tablespoon, 1 teaspoon, 3/4 teaspoon, 1/2 teaspoon, 1/4 teaspoon, and 1/8 teaspoon. Dishwasher-safe.
These measuring spoons really do fit into the spice containers! They are the best shape to have available for cooking needs. In kitchen stores they'd cost more, so ordering them from Chefs is the way to go!

a pineapple has never been easier. The heavy-duty
stainless steel tube blade and tube will peel, core, and
slice a pineapple in less than a minute. Slice tool
produces evenly shaped rings. Optionally preserves shell
to use for decoration or to hold drinks. Made in the Netherlands.
I think most everyone loves the wonderful flavor of fresh pineapple, but they don't love the work involved in prepping one. This tool makes that work disappear! Create a spiral of rings by pressing as you twist it down the center of the pineapple. Pull out the rings using the slicer, remove the handle and slide the fruit right off. Cutting a pineapple couldn't be easier!
Peel Away Apple Peeler : This tool performs three ways - peel alone, core and slice together, or peel/core/slice all together.

I used to dread making something with apples, as it takes a while to core, peel, and slice. But since I got one of these, I actually look forward to making apple goodies! I'm not very mechanically inclined, so this scared me. It wasn't hard to figure out at all, it's very easy to use, and cleaning it is a breeze. Now I wish I'd bought one sooner!

When our coffee maker needed replacement, I decided to get one that grinds and brews. Of the ones on the market, this one was reasonably priced and nice looking. It takes a little trial and error to figure out the correct bean/water ratio that's right for you, but once you've got that taken care of, it's great. The parts are diswasher safe so clean-up is easy. And the fact that it's programable makes waking up to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee a wonderful reality!

This is a wonderful grill to use on everything from pizzas to vegetables to bruschetta and more! I've used it many, many times because it's so easy to clean and it works so great. The temperature can be adjusted, and because water is placed in the tray below, the foods being cooked do not dry out. The portability is a plus, making it easy to use anywhere. It's one of the best 'kitchen gadgets' we've ever bought. It doesn't have to be a 'nice day' to grill anymore!
