At some point it is actually going to get hot here in the Northeast and I'll want something refreshing, like a popcycle, to cool off. These molds freeze the popcyles individually, so they are easy to remove from the mold. Plus they come in cool shapes and colors like: Rocket Pop Blue, Shooting Star Pop Green, and Groovy Pop Yellow. It includes six molds and a coordinating base.

I love oranges, but I hate getting my hands all messy from peeling them. With this orange peeler, you score the peel into segments and then use the blade to remove the strips.

These tongs look very scary, but according to the product description, once you use them, you won't be able to do without them. They are supposedly ideal for handling meat and vegetables as well as for picking up ice cubes, olives, cooked pasta, and delicate fruit.

If you eat a lot of papayas or melons, then this is the instrament for you. One scoop removes the flesh from a halved papaya or melon. The other side separates the fruit from the peel.

No, this isn't for raking little tiny gardens. These rakes are for tossing and serving spaghetti. They are made with olive wood in Italy.

The pattern on these mitts isn't to my taste, but I think they are a really good idea. I'm always struggling with a huge oven mitt to remove my bowl of oatmeal from the microwave and end up getting the mitt in the oatmeal. The mitts include built-in magnets, so you can hang them on the side of the microwave when you aren't using them.

This mini measurer is better for measuring liquids than measuring spoons. Or you can use it as a shot glass and keep track of exactly how much you've had to drink. It has four scales: tablespoons, teaspoons, millileters, and ounces.

Is there anything better than a mojito at the end of a warm summer day? I think not. Plus muddling is fun. This gadget is especially designed for muddling fruit for cocktails. The tip mimics the curves of limes and lemons to extract their juices while griping the fruit for slip-proof muddling. Yum. Now if only it would stop raining, so we could enjoy our mojitos outdoors.
