This 700-Watt 5 tray food dehydrator dries food in just hours instead of days, and it features a top-mounted fan, adjustable thermostat from 95-to-160 degrees F. Another benefit is that the flavors don’t mix, and there’s no need to rotate the trays, plus the opaque exterior blocks harmful lights. We love to dry mango and other fruit, and we think after you get one of these you’ll be making your own dried fruit at a huge savings over purchasing it.

iRobot 560 Roomba Kitchen Robot
This Vacuuming robot that picks up dirt and debris with the touch of a button looks perfect for any messy cook. We’ve used other Roomba robots before with great success, but never tried this kitchen robot. This Roomba features an easy-to-empty bagless dustbin and the fine-filtration system traps allergens.
Cuisinart EasyPop Popcorn Maker
This cool popcorn maker has a motorized stirring mechanism for better popping, and even has special vents which let steam escape to keep popcorn crisp.

Almost the entire popcorn popper is dishwasher-safe including the bowl, bowl cover, stirring stick, and popping plate.
Kuhn Rikon Kulu Herb and Vegetable Knife
Kuhn Rikon has a smaller and larger version of this herb and vegetable knife. We really like the handle, and the high carbon Japanese steel is sharp. This knife also features a nonstick coating for easy food release from the utra-sharp edge. The matching sheath also helps to keep blade sharp for future use.
TOASTit Teflon Toaster Bags – Grilled Cheese in a Toaster
Made from teflon, TOASTit bags cleverly take advantage of teflon’s heat resistance to force your toaster to accept more than just toast, and allow you to make things like grilled cheese, roast chicken, and grilled vegetables. The bags look about standard toast-size, measuring 6.2 x 7.9 inches (16 x 20 cm). They can withstand temperatures of up to 260℃, and can be easily cleaned using soap and water or inside your dishwasher.
