Having made a few cherry pies in our day with pit removal being a pain, it's nice to find this pit remover from Oxo. The Splatter Shield protects your work area from juices and removes for cleaning. The sturdy, die-cast zinc construction removes pits with ease by pushing the pit right out the bottom. The generous cherry holder accommodates large cherries like Bing and Rainier, and is recessed to secure smaller varieties. And if you're worried about having this in the kitchen with kids - it locks closed for convenient storage and safety.

These cool bread cutters will keep your young ones interested in having sandwiches, and interested in solving the sandwich puzzle presented to them - do they eat the left or right piece? The sandwich cutters are a set of 4 puzzle pieces, and since you'll be throwing the crust to the side, make sure and use it for bread crumbs or stuff. The cutters are higher than a regular cookie cutter so they easily cut through two pieces of bread without flattening the sandwich. It's available for $16.

I'm terrible at cooking pasta - you know why? I have no idea on the time different pasta takes, and it looks like this Perfect Pasta Timer would help me out. This pasta timer accounts for the shape of the noodle and the amount being cooked, signaling when the pasta is cooked to your preferred taste. Its LCD control panel allows you to select from the ten most common pasta shapes, input the amount (1/5, 1/2, or 1 lb.), and choose al dente or regular. The LCD is removable, allowing the probe to be washed in a dishwasher.

Having spent New Years Eve shucking oysters without a such a glove as above, I can not so safely tell you - you need a glove. I got a bunch of scrapes and cuts that took the last 2 weeks to heal, and I'm thinking just one shucking incident would be one too many. This glove protects hands while using zesters, graters, and yes shucking oysters. It's made out of cut-resistant fibers, and is stretchable, light weight, and breathable. One size fits most, and glove works for right and left hands. The glove is even machine washable.

I'm not sure why you would want to peel asparagus, but I like the fact that this peeler snips the stems of asparagus. Would also work for beans and peas.

I don't like mushrooms, so I won't be using this. But for all you mushroom lovers, this gadget slices fresh mushrooms. You simply hold the slicer over the mushroom and push down. The container holds them for easy transfer to a pan or bowl. It also works on small fruits and vegetables.
