I love fresh tomato salad with a little oil and vinegar and salt. Yummy. I can't wait til my tomatoes get ripe. This tool will supposedly slice your tomatoes into nice even slices. The slicer has multiple serrated stainless steel blades. The handle is rubber.

I've seen these in the store a few times. We have a silicone oven mitt, but these look like they might be more flexible than the one we have. The silicone is temperature-tolerant from -58 degrees to 446 degrees. They come in dog and frog styles.

Want to spice up your next bbq? The Octodog turns an ordinary hot dog into a octopus dog. You just insert the hot dog into the Octodog and push down. Hilarity ensues.

If you do a lot of cooking with ground beef, this could come in handy. The chopping blade breaks ground meat into pieces in the pan. It has a plastic blade that won't scratch non-stick cookware.

I could have used this last night as I stripped a corn for a salad. It takes the kernals clean off the cob and into your bowl. Plus it has a face. Shouldn't all your gadgets have a face?
