Our utensils are so mismatched, sometimes I think I would just like to get rid of them all and buy a matched set like this. The set includes a ball whisk, a turner, a Chinese turner, and a slotted spoon. It also comes with a wire utensil basket.

It looks like a machete, but it's a spatula specially designed for flipping crepes, pancakes, and eggs. The blade supposedly slides under the crepe easily and you flip easily with a twist of the wrist. Sounds to me like something that might take some practice, though.
If you are always afraid of chopping off your fingers, when you are cutting fruits and vegetables, this mandoline is all about safety. The mandoline comes with six blades. A safety button locks in the blades, so they can't move out of place. The food holder slides up and down on the mandoline’s grooved rail, which keeps the motion controlled and on track. Food stays secured with the food guide, which pushes food through the holder and grips it with its sharp teeth.

Williams-Sonoma now has garnishing squeeze bottles. You can use them to pour sauce on plates or to baste food while cooking. This set of three has three different angled tips. The tips are color coded--green (narrow), gray (wide), and red (basting).

We have a vacuum marinator and it seems to work pretty well, but this one also tumbles:
Marinates meats, poultry, fish, veggies, tofu, fruit in just 5 to 20 minutes and does a better job than 24 hours of pan or bag soak marination. The Patent-pending MariVac process uses a commercial-grade vacuum pump, which removes the air from the barrel causing the food's fibers to relax and stretch open to absorb substantially more marinade than pan soaking. Then the tumbling action massages and works the marinade deep into the food for moist fall-off -the-fork tender flavorful results.

It may not seem like it right now (at least not in the Northeast), but summer is coming.This mold creates two hamburger patties that are perfect for the grill. The patties are 4½" wide and 1" thick. And the interior features a raised grill-like surface.

What I like about these measuring cups (other than the cheery colors) is the pour spout. The cups are made from melamine and come in a set of four, ¼ cup, 1/3 cup, ½ cup, and 1 cup capacities

Having measuring cups that stack would be a big help to me. This set comes with three measuring sizes-- 1 cup, 2 cups, and 4 cups. The measurements can be read from above and on both sides of all the cups.

These spoons look like wooden spoons, but they are made out of nylon and fiberglass, so they won't stain or splinter and they are dishwasher safe.
