Stick A Knife In This Mezzaluna

Totally Bamboo Geo Mezzaluna Cutting Board And Knife Combination

A mezzaluna is a nice and neat way to chop herbs or other small items. The concave cutting board keeps chopped goodies in place while one simply rocks a rounded knife over them. It’s efficient and practical—until it comes time to store the knife.

The Totally Bamboo Geo Mezzaluna Cutting Board And Knife Combination features on-board storage for the oddly-shaped knife. Tucking away directly into the body of the board, the mezzaluna offers an easy and safe way to keep the handy cutlery at the ready. Plus its Moso bamboo construction is ecologically sound. Measures 10-inches by 10-inches and stands 1-inch tall.

Banana Slices You Can Count On

Chef’n Banana Slicer

A little consistency in the morning isn’t too much to ask for. As we navigate our routine on autopilot, having things where and how we want them makes it much easier to get through the morning. It’s almost like getting extra sleep, uh, except without the actual sleeping in. While our brains might not have to work until we leave the house, our bodies certainly do.

The Chef’n Banana Slicer creates perfectly uniform banana slices, keeping your morning cereal exactly the way you expect it. Designed for kids and adults, the cutting tool produces five even slices with just a squeeze of the handle. Fingers are protected as the actual cutting is accomplished away from the grip. Now if they could just stock supermarket shelves with perfectly even bananas.

Star Wars Sandwich Cutters Use The Force

Star Wars Sandwich Cutters with Vintage-Style Tin

Just because George Lucas Jedi Mind Tricked us into believing that all things should be Star Wars doesn’t mean that it isn’t true. Sandwiches, for example: they taste better when given the Star Wars treatment; everybody knows this to be a fact.

While “goofy rolling pizza wheels” (seriously, it’s in the product description), only offer cutting ability, the Noble Cut ‘n’ Serve Pizza Scissors also incorporates a spatula. No, that’s not goofy at all!
