Along with mangoes, pineapples are one of my favorite fruits. I love the tropical fruit, what can I say? I should live on a tropical island, sigh . . . Anyhoo, cutting pineapples is even more of a pain than cutting mangoes. This little device purports to make it easy. It cores and slices in one action, working like a corkscrew.
I had no idea such a thing existed, and I'm not entirely sure of the point. But if you just need a touch of vinegar, this is the gadget for you. You can make sure you add just the right amount of balsamic vinegar to a salad or your fish and chips.

This seems like a great idea--an adjustable measuring cup. It replaces six conventional measuring cups, so you can get rid of all the small measuring cups you have lying around. The sleeve slides and seals for liquid and dry ingredients, and the product description says it is great for sticky ingredients like honey or peanut butter.

Such a simple idea, it is hard to believe it isn't more common. This cutting board as a bottom lip to hold the board in place and a top lip to keep your sliced vegetables on the table.

I love a cool spice rack. I just wish my spices were as pretty as these. This self-stacking, interlocking spice rack contains six acrylic spice bottles with removable sifter lids. It also includes 48 pre-printed and six blank spice labels.

I love mangoes. I eat them whenever I get a chance. But cutting a mango is such a pain. This might make things a little easier. The mango slicer supposedly slices fruit cleanly in half, leaving almost nothing behind on the seed. It has stainless-steel blades and is dishwasher safe.

Ok--This thing isn't very attractive, but it sounds pretty cool. It comes in eight colors and has little embossed letters all over it that allow you to puree garlic without much mess or fuss. And it is the size of a credit card so you can carry it with you for any garlic pureeing emergencies that may occur.

I don't have one of these, but Russ does. The way he was talking about it made me want to get one right away. I'm too lazy to cut the fruit and squeeze, so I usually get my lemon and lime juice from a bottle (not as good, I know). This seems like a great way to get fresh juice without the mess. Russ says if you don't use all the juice, you can put it in the fridge for later.

I don't know what yogurt cheese is, but I like yogurt and I like cheese, so it could be the perfect combination. According to the description, you can use yogurt cheese as a low-fat substitute cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream. Simple instructions and recipes for yogurt cheese are included. If you are really ambitious, you can make your own yogurt and then make yogurt cheese.

The contraption looks a little scary, but I could definitely use this. No more boiling over messes. It says the the height adds just the right amount of space to let steam escape. It fits all pots and is dishwasher safe.
