The Toss & Chop is a two bladed, scissor like chopping wonder! How many times do you have a salad prepped but really need to cute up a bunch of tomatoes, peppers, and other stuff to put on top? The problem is those vegetables make a total mess on a chopping board and they are impossible to cut in a bowl. By using the toss & chop you will be able to quickly chop vegetables and a wide variety of other foods directly in a bowl. Now my set of summer kitchen gadgets is complete - before this - total tomato mess - now no mess.

I've been poaching eggs using a microwave 4 eggs at a time poacher. The ability to just put in some eggs and have them soft-boiled, hard boiled, or poached sounds right up my alley. I need egg diversity in my morning. Also this little beauty, will sound the egg alarm and let you know when the eggs are done. Do you think I could become an egg super hero if I acquired such an item?

I needed this just last night! You can't imagine the conflicts I get over who gets the last bites of Caramel Cashew or Dave Matthews in our household - but it had better be me! Now you can lock up that pint of Ben & Jerry's ice cream with the new Euphori Lock. Happiness definitely comes in a pint of locked ice cream!

Maya and I were discussing registering for wedding stuff so long ago and how much of a pain it was (okay 7 years and I have the itch for more kitchen contraptions).
Way back in 1998, you really couldn't register for that much stuff online - it's very cool to see a place like Cooking.com, with so many kitchen gadgets available have an online Wedding Registry. I can't tell you how much easier it would have been to discuss things at the store and then go home and really pick out things for our registry on the computer instead of arguing it out in the store.

If you don't own a Kitchen Aid mixer I highly recommend getting one, and if you do, the world of Kitchen Aid gadgets made for this mixer will open up to you. Right now at Amazon in the Kitchen & Housewares section if you purchase $125 you can save $25. I would recommend if you don't have a Kitchen Aid mixer to get one. The range of attachments to meet your cooking needs and style is stunning. I just found the ice cream maker attachment. I have to have it.
The Ice Cream Attachment looks amazing. We have the sausage maker attachment for our Kitchen Aid mixer, so I can imagine the ice cream maker attachment will kick butt. My daughter is 1.5 years old, and I really want to open up the world of ice cream making and all it's wonders to her. Hopefully we can order this tomorrow - if I beg Maya.

I always need to save prep time and also mess. With the Batter Pro you can bread chicken, fish and more fast, without messing with ziploc bags or getting your hands covered in egg, milk, or whatever concoction you are battering with. Just fill The Batter Pro with batter, place meat inside, shake and flip. Also - it's dishwasher safe. I think this may be a purchase in the near future.

I really need this. I am so tired of grabbing the soap bottle, dumping it onto the dishes and/or brush and then having to close the bottle, set it down - etc. OXO really makes amazing products that solve two or even three step problems into one gadget.

Washing dishes just got easier with Oxo's Soap Dispensing Kitchen Brush. The Brush has a soft button that doubles as a seal; just pull open the seal and fill the clear body with soap. Reseal the opening, and you?re ready to dispense soap with the press of a button. Sturdy nylon bristles are perfect for scrubbing, and the Brush is dishwasher safe. The soft handle absorbs pressure and keeps your hand comfortable as you scrub.
