It looks like a giant pencil sharpener, but it is for creating round and conical-shaped shavings from vegetables. Made with plastic and has a stainless steel blade.
Instead of using a fork and letting all the juices out, you can use these tongs to hold your roast in place while you cut it. It can also be used for bread. And yes, as bookofjoe says it does look like a hair clip for a 50-foot woman

Don't remember which piece of meat was well done and which is rare? This set of skewers and markers can help. The set of five includes one of each: rare, medium rare, medium, medium done, and well done.

I hate cutting cake; I always make a huge mess and end up with wildly uneven slices. And while we are on the topic, who made up that rule about the person whose birthday it is cutting their own cake? So annoying. Anyway, this cake cutter may be able to help.

I love the look of this grinder. The Ceramic Crushgrinder grinds coffee, spices, and seeds without a mess on the countertop. It has an adjustable wheel that grinds from fine to course.

If you are like my husband and hate to eat corn directly off the cob, this little gadget strips the corn off the ear. The cutter expands and adjusts to fit all sizes of ears.

I love artichokes. Love them. Of course they are just a receptacle for this mayonnaise/mustard/garlic/horseradish sauce I make with the artichokes. Anyway, I usually just steam ours in the steamer, but these artichoke steaming racks look pretty cool. And if you turn the rack over, it can act as a serving dish.

This grater doesn't look very flashy or modern, but it seems very practical. It has six sides, including one side that is see-through measuring tool. The grater holds up to 4 1/2 cups of grated goodness, and the bottom removes for easy emptying.
