Catch And Release Yolk Fish

Silicone YolkFish Squeeze Fish Lips Swallow Release Egg Separator Cooking and Baking Tool Yolk Fish by Peleg Design

Whoever said imitation is the highest form of flattery wasn’t living in the digital age. As soon as the Quirky Pluck Yolk Extractor showed up on the crowdsourcing site, the copycats got in on the action. Now there are tons of yolk tools available. (Here’s what a yolk search in the Home & Kitchen department on Amazon will get you.) While the original yolk extracting design was elegant in its simplicity, it lacked any pizzazz. And it looked nothing like a fish.

While the original idea for the egg gadget was clever, the Silicone YolkFish Squeeze Fish Lips Swallow Release Egg Separator Cooking and Baking Tool by Peleg Design takes it (and its product title) one step further. The idea of using a fish to fish for egg yolks is certainly cute and the egg separator does offer a fun whimsical shape, but at the price they are asking for it, the thing might as well be shaped like a cash cow — at least until the next thing wanders or swims along.

Waffle Tongs?

Norpro Waffle Tongs

Now I appreciate me some waffle tongs as much as the next guy, but I’m not sure they justify a ten dollar price tag. Now granted, I’m sure these Norpro Waffle Tongs work better than say, a sledgehammer, would for lifting waffles out of the waffle iron, but chances are there is another gadget or tool hanging about the kitchen that will do the job just as well.

But then again, might as well one pick up just in case — perhaps if its waffle-picking up duties are over exaggerated, it could be used as a hair clip instead!

Snail Funnel Does Your Kitchen Tasks — Slowly

DCI Snail Funnel

Every kitchen needs a funnel, but not every kitchen needs snails. However, that doesn’t mean the two can’t get along. In fact if you put them together you get the DCI Snail Funnel!

The collapsible snail funnel is a fun way to go about many kitchen tasks — albeit very slowly. Perfect for pouring honey or molasses into small jars or otherwise, the fun kitchen tools could probably even be used with faster pouring ingredients — just don’t add salt.

Silicone Shell Molds Versus Baby Mold

Silicone Shell Molds

It’s probably pretty hard to carve a seashell design out of fondant or gum paste. That’s probably why First Impressions made these Silicone Shell Molds. Which is probably exactly the way the pros do it. Which is probably one reason why professionally-made cakes look so good.

But one thing that is certain, is that these seashell molds can in no way produce as terrifying a result as the Silicone Baby Mold that First Impressions also makes. Mmm, baby cake!
