I can never get pasta servings right, but this takes the guesswork out of cooking pasta. The basket measures one serving of pasta and works with any type of pasta -- you can use the handle to measure long pasta. You poor the pasta into the basket, set the basket into boiling water, and lift it out when the pasta is done. Four baskets can fit into one pot, for more than one serving.

My kids seems to only like peaches if they are sliced, so this could save me some time. I wonder if an apple corer would work as well. But if you want a dedicated peach pitter, this tool turns whole peaches and nectarines into 12 uniform slices. Includes a plastic cover for safe storage.

This looks like a great way to mince a lot of fresh herbs. You place herbs in the mill and then twist the handle. The blades mince the herbs quickly. I wonder whether it would work for garlic too? It is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.

Made from teflon, TOASTit bags cleverly take advantage of teflon's heat resistance to force your toaster to accept more than just toast, and allow you to make things like grilled cheese, roast chicken, and grilled vegetables. The bags look about standard toast-size, measuring 6.2 x 7.9 inches (16 x 20 cm). They can withstand temperatures of up to 260℃, and can be easily cleaned using soap and water or inside your dishwasher.
Oishi & Associates has TOASTit listed as 840 yen (or about $9.20) for a pack of two bags. For the rest of us outside of Japan who would like to order, you can find them available on Amazon.
