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.

Want to do something different with all those Easter eggs you have lying around? Why not turn them into cubes?

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.

This looks like a scary implement from an evil doctor's office, but it is actually a handy device for injecting marinade or sauce into your meat before cooking it.

I love little bowls. These little bowls are silicone, so the ingredients won't stick to them, and they are flexible, so you can pinch them to get the ingredients out.

From the "it's about time" file, this angled measuring cup from OXO allows you to read measurement markings by looking straight down in the cup. So you no longer have to put stuff in and then check the side, then take some out, then put some more in, etc. etc.
