Nut Bolt and Screw Salt-and-Pepper Collection
This hardware-inspired salt-and-pepper set is ideal for all those hard-core DIYers out there. Designed to look like a bolt, each shaker will dispense seasonings from its gaps when bent. Pick them up, turn them whichever way, and shake them. These handy items won’t spill until bent. Each features an “S” or “P” so that you can identify the contents and is available in all stainless steel or with black accents. Just watch out because the price may drive you nuts. About $40, gadgets.co.uk
The Onion Goggles keep your eyes dry as you mince, dice, and slice those pesky tear-inducing alliums.

Designed to fit the shape of your eye, the goggles are available in pink with white accents, white with green accents, and black with green accents. Just don’t get misty eyed if someone finds your new fashion choice a bit laughable. About $19, RSVP International
Self-Twirling Spaghetti Fork
If you have severe carpal tunnel syndrome (or you’re just incredibly lazy) this twirling utensil may come in handy.

The fork comes in green and yellow, purple and yellow, and red and white color combinations. It can handle everything from angel hair to fettucini and will add a new twist to any meal! (Sorry we couldn’t resist.) About $10, Hog Wild Toys
3-in-1 Breakfast Maker

Sunpentown even offers a 4-in-1 model where the frying pan converts to a steam tray. About $69, Sunpentown
