    The V-Shaped Cutter opens pourable boxes perfectly like dish soap, rice, instant potatoes etc.

    The Cooks Corer is great to scrape out the inside of a baked potato to make twice baked.

    To revive limp vegies place raw celery, carrots, cucumbers and radishes by placing then in our Classic Bowl filled with ice water for about a half an hour.

    If you have leftover lemon, lime or orange juice when squeezing fresh fruit with our juicer, pour it into an ice cube tray and freeze for later.

    To absorb fat from finished soup just add 2-3 lettuce leaves to the top and remove after 2-3 minutes.

    Our bar pan is great for roasting pumpkins seeds. They don't fall off and the nature of the stone makes them crispy.

    Refresh dried- out muffins by brushing them lightly with milk using our Pastry Brush. Then put them in a warm oven for 5-7 minutes.

    Use our Apple Wedger for cucumber wedges on your vegie platter.

    Suggest our Small Stainless Steel Scoop for scooping cake , brownie, and cornbread batter into our mini muffin pan. Less mess and easy!

    V Shaped Cutter and Strawberry Hearts

    Use the V-Shaped cutter to core strawberries and then slice with the egg slicer - you now have heart-shaped strawberries.

    Avacado Peeler

    I used it yesterday to take the seeds out of a cucumber. I had run out of "clean" tools and did not want to use the Chef's Knife as that is all I had left. So I simply sliced the cucumber in half length wise with the Chef's Knife then ran the peeler down each side of the "seed bed" and then like you would a spoon, scraped out the seeds. It came out in one piece without disturbing the good part of the cucumber! Because of the curve of the peeler, it got under the "seed bed" easily without taking out the meat. Really cool for the customers. They saw me do this and thought it was really great. Sold three! On top of it all, it was an accident! I just grabbed what I had that was not used and dirty already to take out the seeds. The Chef's Knife would have taken out to much meat and would have been too hard to handle.
