1) Butefo 8-in-1 Kitchen Tool Set

8-in-1 kitchen tool setThis ingeniously designed all-around kitchen tool looks like a bottle at first sight. But there are many things that the Butefo 8-in-1 Kitchen Tool Set can do: a funnel, juicer, spice grater, cheese grater, measuring cup, can opener, egg separator and egg masher. It’s also designed to be a great space saver in your cupboard. 

2) Dash Rapid Egg Cooker

You want a hard-boiled egg, but it turns out to be soft-boiled if you don’t give it enough cooking time. Or you want a soft-boiled egg but you have waited around for too long and end up having a hard-boiled egg. 

But your “eggs-asperating” problem will now be put to rest with the Dash Rapid Egg Cooker. This appliance cooks six eggs exactly just the way you want them – soft, medium, and hard – with absolutely no guesswork. It cooks eggs half the time that conventional egg boiling methods do. Depending on how many eggs you’re cooking, Dash Egg Cooker can cook soft-boiled eggs in seven to 10 minutes and hard-boiled eggs in 12 to 16 minutes, . It also has an auto shut-off.

Aside from boiling eggs, the Dash Egg Cooker also cooks poach and scramble eggs, as well as makes omelets. Eggs-celent, right?

3) Digital Kitchen Food Scale and Measuring Cup
