What makes a good kitchen gadget? It has to do its intended job well and quickly, it should look good and shouldn’t be too expensive. But the most important thing is it has to be a gadget that you will actually use. Face it, do you really need a latte frother or a strawberry huller? Well, some people will, but a lot of people won’t.

Wustof 5558-1 Come Apart Kitchen Shears for $19.34 will slice thru bone, thick slabs of meat and still remain sharp enough to cut flower stems. Left hand friendly these shears also have a bottle opener in the handles.
For slicing jobs too big for the NorPro slicer to handle, try the Vee Mandoline Slicer and at $19.95 is still a good deal. It comes with 3 blades at 3 centimeters, 2 centimeters and 1 centimeter thicknesses and 2 julienne blades with a matching safety holder. Also comes with a one year warranty
