Chef'n has a new silicone steamer out. The flexible sides mean the steamer will fit into both small and medium sized pots, and the nonstick design protects the sides of pans.

This ricer is designed for making very fine puree.
Just press any cooked fruit or vegetable through the screen with the pestle, and only the juice will come through, leaving all the skin and seeds behind. The Rotary Ricer is so fine that it is often used to puree grapes. The stand is designed to hook on to a saucepan or bowl to catch the sauce.
This cheese grater is battery operated so there is no hand crank. Can be used for chocolate or cheese, but it supposedly does not work well with soft cheese (not surprisingly). Comes with a rechargeable wall or table mount base.

I needed this at my daughter's birthday brunch party. The nonstick coated blade slices any bagel up to 5" in diameter and 2" thick. A polycarbonate shields protect hands.

We love Bodum products in our household, and I like the look of their salt and pepper grinder set.
The pepper grinder is easy to identify by it's functional black knob. The blade on the pepper grinder is made of durable carbon steel that never needs sharpening, giving you years of use. The salt grinder is identified by its white knob and incorporates a non-corroding ceramic blade that cuts the salt without any damage from the salts corrosive properties. Both grinders have adjustable grind settings.

If you really want to say "I love you" on Valentine's Day, forget the heart-shaped cookies--heart shaped eggs are the way to go. Place the heart in the pan, crack open the egg, and cook. The rings have a handle to easily lift them off a finished egg.
I could have used these glasses over the holidays when I had to chop a lot of onions. The goggles have a foam seal that shuts out onion smells and protects your eyes. They also have anti-fog lenses and don't look that unattractive.

This slicer seems to be very versatile. It can be used with cheese and fruit and vegetables, and can do many different kinds of cuts, including paper-thin slices, French fries or carrots sticks, and crinkle and waffle cuts. It comes with a stainless steel mandoline with two folding feet, a carbon stainless steel straight blade for slicing, a carbon steel serrated blade for crinkle and waffle cuts, three stainless steel julienne blades, a receptacle that slides on to the frame to hold the fruits and vegetables, and an ergonomic pusher to press the fruits and vegetables firmly into the receptacle against the blade.

This spatula works as both a tong and a flipper. You can grab what you are cooking and flip it over. Made from heat resistent plastic.

Here is a gadget you didn't know you needed. It is true that getting pickles out of a jar can be difficult, but I'm not sure it warrants its own device. The pickle picker has retractable wire tongs designed to grip the pickle and eliminate pick juice mess.
