Did the Nasa Mars program just land a robotic garlic press on our countertops? We guess not but a Garlic Zoom XL did just land, and we're driving it around to garlic chopping success. How does it work? Just insert one or two peeled cloves in the trapdoor on top, close it up, and then drive your Zoom around the countertop. The stainless steel blades whizz around inside, slice and dicing the garlic.
- Clear acrylic body with stainless-steel chopping blades
- Fun for kids (the driving part! Don't let kids near the blades inside.)
- See-through design lets you see when garlic is chopped enough
- No more smelly garlic hands
- Blade unit removes for cleaning; top-rack dishwasher-safe

Modern Mechanix found from the February, 1930 issue of Modern Mechanics. According to 1930's scientists, the human body produces enough heat to cook potatoes as long as you put this kitchen contraption on your head.
Scientists have learned that our bodies are living machines of the combustion type in which the burning of fuel (food) is accompanied by the consumption of oxygen, liberation of heat energy and production of carbon dioxide as is the case in all combustion engines. Scientists find that the heat from a single person, if properly focussed, would be sufficient to cook potatoes.
Maybe they'll call you Mr. or Mrs. Potato head but we expect the yummy mashed results will be worth the burn.

You know - we never think to get a fun corkscrew - just one that works and is touted to do the job. In our experience hiring a Captain like Captain Banana should probably do the job just fine after a few glasses of wine. Designed by Stefano Giovannoni in 2009, the parrot sitting on top of the "captain" turns as you place it over your wine bottle.

You can get downright progressive in your chopping with this one handed food chopper, ideal for chopping nuts, fruits, vegetables, chocolate and more. You can dice, slice and chop fruits and veggies without the mess of a cutting board, and it's pretty simple.
You press down on the pusher lid and food is cut into included measuring container. There's even a built-in side blade which minimizes the need for precutting, and the set includes a cleaning tool and storage box. And when you're done the entire rig is dishwasher safe. I think I can see fresh cut french fries in my future.
