We really hate the Kitchen Timer on our stove currently. It is a usability nightmare and often impossible to shut off with wet or dough covered hands. We've been looking into something stylish and easy to shut offf in the kitchen countertop timer arena. The Jacob Jensen Timer is suitable for counting down a pre-programmed time which should be perfect for cooking. The time can be set from one minute to 12 hours and you can adjust it up and down during count-down. Resetting is easy by gently pressing both sides of the functional key for two seconds. The timer features both an acoustic and visual alarm, which is deactivated by pressing any side of the functional key. Any side!

Each Egg Toon has a single purpose: Timer, Yoke Separator, or Hard Boiled Egg Slicer. Imagine these guys staring you down, "Please use me. I'm lonely. Just eat an egg!"

We loved the Knork now the Moscardino Spork! They're small enough for easy use by children and great for an all around eating implement. The sporks are made of Mater-Bi, a completely biodegradable starch-based plastic, which stands up to repeated use and prolonged contact with liquids, achieving 90 percent degradation in about 50 days under normal aerobic composting conditions.

Umm...why didn't they have this when I was a wee lad? The chocolate fountain is the perfect addition for any kitchen hell bent on creating chocolate treats at any time of day. The fountain comes with a supply of chocolate and is priced in the $150 range US.
Also - if you want to recreate the scene where the fat kid falls into the chocolate river in Willy Wonka - just apply action figure, dip, and enjoy.

BAMBOO!!! BAMBOO!!! BAMBOO!!! It's turning up everywhere and especially in the kitchen. And who wouldn't want to buy a bamboo cutting board with the name, "Little Kahuna". I can see the Big Kahuna in our house using this bad little boy.
Premium, hand-selected Totally Bamboo products are beautiful and useful, an ecologically-friendly, naturally renewable resource. Bamboo is 16% harder than maple wood and 1/3 lighter than oak, and absorbs very little moisture so it doesn't shrink or swell like other hardwoods. These beautifully crafted boards are assembled with approved food-grade glue, and never contain dye, stains, or formaldehyde. Little Kahuna dimensions: 12" x 18" x 2 1.4

If you spend an afternoon eating an entire bag of cherries, then you know you'll need a cherry pit plunger. Take the tedium out of pitting and process up to 30 lbs. of cherries in an hour with this plunger-type pitter. Automatically feeds, then removes pit from cherry with one stroke of the plunger. The pit ejects into a see through container and cherry falls into your waiting bowl, with no loss of juice & no bruising. Pitter has plastic housing with metal plunger, and suction base.

Earlier we covered the Danko fridge magnet bottle opener and tried to find one in the local Boston area on a routine kitchen gadget hunting expedition. Well, we didn't find the Danko version, but did find the Suck.uk version designed by Sam & Jude and it looks very similar. In purchasing such an item like an opener, you have to really want to put your money down as you know you'll be stuck with it and at $22.95 it's not cheap either.

One cup of water instead of an entire pot of water boiling saves energy. That thought had to be going through the head of the person who designed the Eco Kettle. The 1.5 litre reservoir of water can be added to the two secondary chambers that will boil. This makes boiling the right amount of water a no brainer, as you can put the right amount in the secondary reservoirs.
