This week: Clip-on egg separators, mango slicers, and ninja bottle openers!

Posted on

1. This heat-resistant separator that will keep fat and other unwanted bits from ruining your gravy.


Promising review: "It's the perfect separator for soups and gravies. I'm so happy I finally found one that actually works as described. It's high quality and I can even pour a boiling liquid in it and it won't crack. I bought one for my daughter-in-law, too."– Movie Buff

Price: $19. Also available in a smaller size.

2. This magical silicone whisk that can transform from flat style into a balloon style.

Promising review: "My roommates and I love this thing. It's sooo much easier to clean than other balloon whisks because it lies flat. This is definitely a quality purchase."– carolineee21

Price: $14.99.


4. This clip-on egg separator that will keep egg shells from sneaking their way into your recipe.

Promising review: "Separating eggs doesn't get easier than this. I make ice cream at least two times a month and need to separate lots of eggs. This separator makes it much easier to do so. It didn't fit onto my mixing bowl but works perfectly with my measuring cup."– sexysherri

Price: $7.99.

5. This citrus juicer that has a domed lid that doubles as a measuring cup.

Promising review: "I can juice the crap out of my lemons and limes now. Both the lid and bottom have measurement lines on them and the spout works great for transferring the juice. It feels durable and well-built."– james rapinda

Price: $7.19.

6. This small but mighty knife sharpener that will have all your tools feelin' brand new.


Promising review: "The efficiency and results of using this with our knives are amazing! We haven't sharpened our knives in about half a year and with just three minutes of using this, our knives cut like they're brand new! The coarse side really does a good job into setting the proper angle for your everyday knife and after a few minutes using that, you can then use the fine grit and it just completely finishes the job. The product is small enough to fit anywhere but sturdy that it'll last a life time!"– Jarvin

Price: $8.99. Also available in red.


9. And this set of silicone baking sheets that will keep those precious cookies from sticking.


Promising review: "I always used to line my baking trays with tin foil or parchment paper and it was still messy. These mats are great because they help cut down on waste and are totally non-stick. They even wipe clean afterwards."– DeBo

Price: $17.99.


11. This five-pack of reusable produce bags that will cut down on all those plastic bags at the grocery store.

Promising review: "I really love these reusable produce bags. I purchased the set a little while ago and have used them a few times now when I've gone grocery shopping. They're great because the material and stitching is quite sturdy. The material is just see-through enough that you can easily identify what you've purchased. The bags are larger than I expected, which is nice. And the colour codes are helpful if you need to quickly identify items that are similar in shape and size. These are handy to have and wash very well."– Nicole

Price: $13.44.

12. This microfibre drying mat that will keep moisture away and keep your countertops dry.


Promising review: "For under $6, this was a fantastic buy. It was larger than expected and seems high quality. It looks so much nicer on the counter than having an old (or even new) tea towel to set wet dishes on."– Robert Riley

Price: $5.50. Also available in several sizes and colours.

13. And finally, this 5-pack of dough presses that will have you making everything from calzones to dumplings to stuffed pies!


Promising review: "I love the different sizes! You can make everything from bite size to meal size. And depending on how hungry each family member is, they can decide how big to make it. I also love that the bottom of the mold can be used to cut out the exact size needed to make it."– richard joers

Price: $9.97.
