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.

This lemon squeezer filters out seeds and pulp and keeps hands clean. It also turns inside out for cleaning.

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.

I don't understand my husband's love for poached eggs, but the poachpod would allow him to poach one egg at a time. You poach the egg in the silicone pod. When the egg is ready, flip the pod inside out.

Flexibility in a spatula could be a good thing as long as you aren't flipping something heavy. This flexible spatula has a slight angle and a tapered edge. It is made with nylon, so it is good for nonstick pans.
Most pizza peels I've seen are wooden and bulky. I never could get our wooden one to work well. This has an aluminum surface and a wood handle that folds down for easy storage.

I have a KitchenAid stand mixer, and one of my biggest complaints is how difficult it is to add ingredients while the mixer is going. So I was very excited to receive this Mix-In-Guide. I believe my mixer came with some sort of shield, which was so useless, I don't even know where it is anymore. But the shield didn't help when I was trying to add flour to the mixer while it was going.
I tried out the Mix-In-Guide while making cookies last weekend, and it worked great. First of all, it is easy to fit on the bowl. Second, the ingredients slid right into the bowl instead of getting all over the counter. Finally, because it is stainless steel, nothing stuck to it, so cleanup was easy.
