2. Turn your burger upside-down.

An upside-down burger?! Yes! The top bun is thicker than the bottom bun, allowing it to absorb the condiments and juices of the meat without falling apart in your hands.

4. Spiral cut your hot dog.

Want your wiener to hold on to all that mustard and relish? Spiral cut it so your favorite toppings have a place to go rather than all over your face.

9. Make ice cream using only a food processor.

Surprise! Need to cool down with a cool treat and don't have one of those fancy ice cream makers? You can actually make ice cream using some frozen ice cream mix and a food processor.

11. Turn your chip bag into an easily accessible bowl.

Never be concerned with people clogging up the food buffet by sticking their arms down into chip bags — cut your chip bags open longways and keep the line flowing!

12. Make a thumbprint in your burger patties before putting them on the grill.
