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.

Given the new design of ketchup bottles this might not be such a BIG idea but we do think for certain annoying sauce bottles this could be the bomb. BigFoot replaces ordinary bottle cap to allow bottle to stand upside down. BigFoot provides a wide, stable base to prevent the bottle from tipping over, and its unique cap design fits most popular sizes of plastic bottles.

This modern looking kettle uses 1500 watts of power to automatically boil water and switch off the kettle when done. Since it has an auto-off when it's reached the boiling point you won't need to do a mad dash to the kitchen to stop your kettle from boiling over. The kettle also features a soft-grip to ensure no burnt hands when making tea.

This electric pepper mill features a push button on the top to commence grinding along with a light on the bottom to assist in putting the pepper where it really needs to go. The glass window allows you to see how many peppercorns you have left before needing a refill. What we really like is the shape of the mill - it's very modern and really quite spectacular in brushed chrome.

We love to chop and what better way to chop than with this Double Mezzluna from Williams Sonoma. Christmas dinner prep is just but a day away and getting through all that stuffing preparation can be daunting but not daunting when you have double the trouble for those onions.
This old-fashioned tool—whose name means "half-moon" in Italian—is still an international favorite for chopping. Using an easy, two-handed rocking motion, you can swiftly chop onions, garlic or herbs with the curved, 5 1/2" stainless-steel blades.

Please please please buy us this for Christmas! We love the Eva Solo Fruit Peeler and think it's the perfect fruit peeler any fruit peeling occasion which for us - every morning we make apples for our daughter. Best of all the peeler works for both right and left handed people. Perfect.
The stainless steel blade forms a whole with the shaft, which makes the knife more robust. The knives are designed to be simple, effective and aesthetic and are both functional in the kitchen as well as on the table. This peeler works equally well whether you are left or right-handed. Can be used for peeling vegetables as well as for fruit. Made in stainless steel with plastic and is dishwasher-safe.

We're not sure how or why it works but we do love good bacon. Most of the time frying it up in the pan doesn't seem to be a quick option and especially one with less mess. We think the bacon wave might solve all of our problems but we're not sure if making 28 pieces of bacon at a time is a good idea.
Bacon cooked to perfection in your microwave, for the frying pan taste without the frying pan, or the grease! Make bacon healthier. Less fat less grease less cholesterol less calories cooks up to 14 pieces at once stackable, buy 2 - 28 pieces
