Coolest kitchen gadgets ever

Did I mention that my mother-in-law gives like the coolest stocking stuffers ever?  I do believe I have.

Remember these?


There are onion goggles.  They're to prevent you from tearing up when you cut up onions. What a freakin' cool idea.

Anyways, this year she surpassed herself with this guy:


It's a garlic twist.  Kind of.


You stick the garlic in the little rolling chopper thingy.


Then roll it around for a few seconds.


Then dump the perfectly chopped up garlic in the pan.  And ignore my worn sweatshirts.  Not a whole lot of things fit me anymore.


Isn't it freakin' awesome?  Then you take it apart, rinse it, and get it ready for another use.

I find myself chopping a lot of garlic.  That I don't need.  And usually don't use.  But it's so much fun!  Who can resist?

Oh and she also got us these:


For buttering and de-silking corn.  I think I need to go buy some corn.

  10. We've been in need of a new garlic press for, like, three months. Maybe we'll get one of these cool gadgets instead.
