Crack nuts, I will. For decorative purposes only, this is. So a kitchen gadget, it is not. But being the wife and mother of Star Wars fans, mention it, I had to. Limited addition, this nutcracker is. Made by Steinback of Germany, it is. Addictive, this talking like Yoda is.

Those rolling pizza cutters don't always cut through the whole crust without a lot of effort. These scissors are designed to make a clean cut through thick or then pizza crust. When you are done cutting, you can use it as a serving spatula.
It is two rolling pins in one. The large roller spreads dough over broad surfaces and the small roller fills in the edges.

It is a potato peeler shaped to look like a bird. Cute and functional! The stainless steel blade peels vegetables and the pointed beak removes potato eyes.

I've seen round whisks and ball wisks, but this is a new variation on the whisk. This stainless steel whisk has a triangle shape, which is designed to grab stuff from the bottom and corners of the bowl.

This Zyliss food chopper looks pretty cool. It has a "smart" base that supposedly allows chopping chopping of delicate tomatoes and herbs without smashing. You can chop in the storage cup, on a chopping block, or on the "smart" base. The blades allow chopping from coarse to fine. And it has wiper blades to to keep the inside clean.

I'm a big fan of using a frother to make chocolate milk. It quickly takes the lumps out and makes a nice frothy layer--delicious. This frother includes a stand for countertop storage. Very handy if you want to keep it by the coffee machine.

If you are too lazy to sing happy birthday when cutting a cake, this cake slicer will do it for you. It sings four different songs--Happy Birthday, Jingle Bells, the Wedding March, and For He's a Jolly Good Fellow--so you can find a song for almost any occasion.

This peeler is designed to peel soft fruits and vegetables. It has a serrated blade with two edges, so tomatoes, kiwi, peaches, and ginger can be easily peeled. It also has a sharp steel tip to remove produce blemishes.
