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.

Similar to the collapsible strainer, these measuring cups expand when you want to use them and contract when you want to store them, thereby saving valuable space in your gadget drawer. Plus they come in fun colors.

Do you like to eat food off your dining partner's plate? Or maybe the person at the neighboring table? This fork can make it happen without the awkward reaching across the table. It looks like a normal fork, but it extends to a length of 21 inches.

I need this. It never fails that I start a recipe and then realize I am out of something. This magnet has a number of substitutions that can usually be found in your refrigerator or cabinet.

Trying to get corn out of the water (or off the barbeque) without a good pair of tongs can drive you insane. Believe me, I've tried and have the burn marks to prove it. These stainless steel tongs have long handles and are spring-loaded for grasping food firmly. They are dishwasher safe.

If the shrimp scissors are still too much work for you, then the shrimp butler may be the answer. You put the shrimp in, turn the crank, and the butler slices, filets, and removes the vein.

Peeling and deveining shrimp is a major pain. Supposedly, with these shrimp scissors, you can clean 10 shrimp a minute. You just insert the tip between the shell and the meat and then squeeze the handle.
