Elizabeth’s Favorite Unique Tool: West Elm Mini Juicer
You may not think a juicer is super unique, but I’m telling you, this sucker was not easy to find. In my favorite posts of 2010 roundup, I mentioned a juicer just like this, pictured on another blog, and promised anyone who could find it a hand-written thank-you note. Well, I guess I owe one to Faith.

Food Dehydrators: Is It Worth Buying One?
I recently came across a recipe for fruit leather made in a dehydrator and found myself sighing a lusty sigh. With recipes like this catching my eye and summer produce just around the corner, the lure of the food dehydrator is becoming harder to resist. Do you own one?I’d always imagined food dehydrators as big hulking things that would take up acres of counter space and then be impossible to store in a cupboard. Not so!

Reader Survey: Do You Use a Kitchen Timer?
For us, a timer is as indispensable to cooking as knives and measuring spoons. We use ours for everything from timing hard boiled eggs to the final rise of our bread dough. Are you the same way, or do you tend to go by instinct? We received the Polder timer pictured above as a present. It has count up and count down features, and the keypad makes it easy to input cooking times. Plus, it has magnet on the back so we can secure it where it’s out of the way yet still handy.

Teapots & Le Creuset: 17 New Things from Housewares
Last week I went to the International Home & Housewares show in Chicago, where manufacturers and retailers get together in a giant extravaganza of all things made for the home. Toasters, placemats, pots, pans, knives, and vacuum cleaners were on display in miles of booths and aisles. I already showed you some new products from the show that stood out to me, but I’m revisiting it one more time with a few more finds that were interesting, instructive, or promising.

The Top 10 Most Useful Kitchen Gadgets
We got you talking about the ten most useless kitchen gadgets last week, and now it’s time to weigh in on the 10 most useful gadgets. Here are our picks; what would you choose? As we thought through useless kitchen gadgets (and perused nearly 100 comments on that post!) we saw a pattern. Many useless tools seem to be trying to compensate for a lack of knife skills. Onion choppers and avocado slicers are no match for a good knife and some skill.

iPad: First Impressions and the Epicurious App
After months of imagining all the kitchen possibilities for the iPad, one of the first things we did when our household received its new tablet was head straight for the Epicurious app. Cue the heavenly choirs! To be sure, the iPad is not a necessity, but we must admit we’re pretty smitten.We already use laptops and smartphones in the kitchen, and the iPad combines the best of both worlds. Like the iPhone, it already has cooking-related apps with the potential for many more to come.

Hot or Not? Negi Cutter
We came across this recipe for Asparagus Linguine with mint pesto on No Recipes and noticed the cutting tool used to cut the asparagus into julienne strips. It’s a Japanese kitchen tool called a negi cutter. More about this little tool below the jump. Look and then tell us what you think…We try not to clutter our kitchens with useless tools that we don’t need. We aren’t sure about this one, though.

The Coolest, Simplest Can Opener We’ve Seen
Does anyone own this kitchen gadget? It’s a can opener from Rösle, and it’s not new, but we recently used it at a friend’s house and loved it (as much as one can love a can opener). In fact, it’s so streamlined and nifty that we stared for 15 minutes, sure it was a can opener but with no idea how to use it.

The 10 Most Useless Kitchen Gadgets
It seems that every year we are bombarded with more, more, and yet more kitchen gadgets. Some are cosmetic updates to classic tools, a precious few are genuinely innovative, but many more are useless. We did a poll around the office and then checked in at the Chowhound message boards, and we came up with this list of the 10 most useless kitchen gadgets. We suspect you’ll disagree with one, or maybe more; and you probably have other gadgets to add to this list as well.
