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.

This stainless steel cheese slicer adjusts to three different sizes to allow you to adjust the thickness of your cheese (or chocolate) slices. The slicer also has a soft, rubber handle with a ridged thumb spot for a no-slip grip.

Frankly, I think Peeps are disgusting. I don't get them. But I know other people love them, so if you are one of those people, you can now make them year round. The kit comes with Peeps molds, marshmallow mix & bright pink and yellow sugar.

So with this little thingy, when you are done with a kitchen item, you can scan its bar code. Then you can plug it into your PC and it will compile a grocery list for you. Frankly, it seems like it would be easier to just write down the item directly on the list, but if you like to do everything electronically, this is for you.

With the electric peppermill, you can grind pepper electronically with the touch of a button. You can adjust the grind from course to fine. And it features a light, so you can see how pepper you are grinding.

This is not as space efficient as the collapsible colander, but it may be more practical. The legs open up to straddle the sink, stand upright, or fold closed for storage.

I don't quite understand how this works, but it supposedly cuts like any other scissor except it slices cheese with a stainless steel wire. Whatever. It looks scary.
