Please hold the mustard with Cakewich

Cakewich from Fred & Friends

Peanut butter and jelly not sweet enough for ya? Instead of topping it with sugar, try using cake instead of bread. Sure, good ol’ white bread might as well be made with sugar, but sometimes it’s best just to cut to the chase. The Cakewich from Fred & Friends is a silicone baking pan shaped to look like sliced bread. Bake, slice and fill with your favorite sweet treats. Just be forewarned if you have a penchant for chocolate cake—somehow I don’t think adding turkey will too well mimic a turkey on dark rye.

Be nice: slice precise

Victorinox Precise Slice Knife

In the very near future, hams, turkeys and roasts across the land will be broiled, braised and baked to perfection. From oven to table, the wafting scent of dinner will cause family and friends to gather ‘round in eager excitement. And then you cut into it, ravaging the poor beast into disrespectful clumps. Enthusiastic smiles become replaced by disappointed grimaces. Don’t let your stunning table presentation fall into a meaty pile of disarray: the Victorinox Precise Slice Knife will help you clean up your slicing act.

The serrated knife features an adjustable guide to help you create perfect slices from 1-mm to 15-mm thick. Operating similar to a mechanical slicer, the offset guide directs the cutting edge all the way through the meat during the slicing action. Serve thick slices for the entrée and then just as easily cut some thinly sliced for sandwiches the next day. With neat and clean dinner presentation along with perfect leftovers, your guests may just never leave.

Spachello saves cream cheese packaging

Spachello Slice & Spread

I hate messing up multiple utensils in the kitchen, especially when it comes to making something simple like a sandwich or a bagel. It is just too tempting to use a serrated knife to spread mayo, peanut butter or cream cheese. I have torn many a package of cream cheese into shreds trying to use a sharp knife to dig out the spread for my bagel. It’s a lesson I seem to refuse to learn. Now, I don’t have to; the Spachello Slice & Spread combines a cutting and spreading knife into one. Perfect for people like me who go out of their way to minimize utensil use, the Spachello is the best thing for sandwiches (and tear-prone packaging) since sliced bread.

Kid-friendly Krustbuster crimps crusts clean off

Krustbuster

If you’ve got little ones running about, chances are when it comes to sandwiches, they prefer them with the crusts cut off. It also is highly probable that at times you wish they would make them on their own. However, a simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich can turn into a messy fiasco as kids try to master the art of sandwich construction. At least when it comes to the crust-removal department, there is a solution.

Small cast iron pan for single serving meals

Cast Iron Sandwich Pan

Sometimes smaller is better. If you have a size-challenged kitchen and a penchant for hot grilled sandwiches (or items of similar size), lugging out the big old fry pan can be a chore. The Cast Iron Sandwich Pan is ideal for cooking up single serve meals and doesn’t take up a lot of room. Having a small pan on the side can certainly be convenient. For a single egg or perhaps sautéing some veggies, the small size makes it easy to work with and best of all, there’s less to clean up.

Dino Sandwich Cutter removes crusts, adds fun

dinosandwich

Even as a kid I never quite got the whole sandwich “with the crusts cut off” thing. Crusts are delicious too and deserve such recognition. However if your young’uns need a little encouragement to bite into their PB&J, check out this Dino Sandwich Cutter from Williams-Sonoma. Not only does the sandwich cutter trim off offensive crusts, but it also makes mealtime fun. What little kid (well, the boys at least) wouldn’t enjoy pretending to be some great beast tearing into a dinosaur?

Now, the only problem is what to do about that kid who likes their sandwiches with the crust left on. That’s not gonna fly when everybody else is running around with cool dinosaur sandwiches. (Also available in a stupid boring heart shape for the stupidhead girls.)
