Make Sunday morning breakfast a little more fun with the VillaWare V2002 UNO Belgian Waffler ($48). This heavy duty waffle maker spits out 7 1/2" round waffles that are 1 1/4" thick. It also has a non-stick coating to keep your waffles intact, seven browning settings and a ready light to help keep your morning treat from becoming overcooked.
The kitchen is the hub of every home, so it makes sense to have a central message center like the one on the Samsung Wireless ICE Refrigerator ($3,500). The 26.1 cubic foot refrigerator features a detachable 10.4-inch wireless TFT touch-sensitive LCD Pad with a digital calendar, scheduler, and memo pad. The refrigerator, which has a built-in sound system and digital AM/FM radio, can also be set to remember expiration dates and can generate on-screen alerts when that bacon is too old to eat. In addition, the LCD Pad can connect wirelessly to your entertainment system, letting you watch movies from the kitchen table.
The bachelor pad appliance scene takes a giant step forward with this Magic Chef Pizza Oven ($200). This little wonder in a box is a combo pizza oven and microwave. What more could a guy want? The pizza side of the operation prepares a 12-inch pie in 15 minutes on the Teflon coated non-stick pan with no pre-heating time. Take that Pizza Hut!
Peeling fruits and vegetables sucks, plain and simple. Now you can make the process more enjoyable and speed things up with the Palm Peeler ($5). This simple kitchen gadget slips on your finger and rests in your palm, allowing you to make more natural movements while peeling, well, whatever it is that needs peeled.
If your Holiday gatherings are anything like ours, you'll be opening more than "a few" brews here in the coming weeks, and this little gadget can make that a whole lot easier. The Be Open Bottle Opener ($10-$25) makes opening twist-top or standard bottles a breeze with a simple push down of the opener. Sure, it's not going to make them taste any better, but at least you can look slick doing it.
