No more guessing if the wine is chilled just right or too warm to serve. Within minutes, this band with LED display provides a read-out of the wine’s temperature’ and if it’s ready to serve to your guests. We're big fans of chilled wine, but we've never gone the distance on the right amount of chill. We also think this gadget would be good for a fridge thermometer in a pinch as well.

I like the idea of a measuring cup with a lid. This glass 8-cup measuring cup comes with a lid to easily transport liquids. The lid has 4 positions, which allows you to sift, pour, strain, or sprinkle.

We often eat a large quantity of shrimp on the Memorial Day Weekend, and this year was no exception except thanks to the Shrimp Butler - less mess. It often takes us just over an hour to peel, and devein all the shrimp our hungry stomachs require. This task was cut to about 10 minutes thanks to the Shrimp Butler.
Shrimp Butler, commonly referred to as a shrimp peeler, is an all in one shrimp butterflier and shrimp deveiner. Shuck the loose shrimp peelings under the faucet and your shrimp are ready for cooking.
It's sad - but it's really that simple. Check out the link below for a full set of demonstrations on how to use the Shrimp Butler, but it's drop dead simple and amazing. This also means we'll be eating shrimp, and grilling shrimp more often.

I love stuffed jalapeño peppers and this gadget allows you to stuff peppers and then roast them over a grill. The grill holds up to 18 stuffed or whole peppers upright.

Fresh mozzarella and tomatoes are a great summertime treat. Mozzarella can be difficult to cut, so this slicer may help with preparing the mozzarella.

I've been known to put my ice cream in the microwave to soften it up, but this heated ice cream scoop might do the trick. You just fill the handle with warm water and scoop. The scoop is made from steel and has an extra long handle.

I've encountered a lot of tough jars lately, so anything that claims to help is appealing. It uses suction with ridges to open jars without damaging the lids.

Finding the perfect way to cook bacon is difficult. This microwave bacon cooker allows the grease to drip off while cooking. The bacon is drapped over a hanger and the grease drips into the pan. The pan has a spout to allow you to pour off the grease.
