No kitchen is complete without a blender to crush ice, make smoothies and shakes, and prepare mixed drinks. While most blenders look like relics from a bygone era, the Bugatti Vela Blender ($250) is so stylish you'll want to show it off. But these race-car looks bely some serious power — Bugatti makes race cars, after all. The blender features a 1.5-liter conical glass jar, 18/10 sharpened steel blades, concise controls, and a non-drop spout. Who knew crushing ice could look so good?
The GI Metal Pro Pizza Cutter ($28) is made from stainless steel and features a 3.5-inch rolling blade (which can be easily sharpened or replaced). Unlike typical pizza cutters made for home use, this professional grade cutter is sturdy and well made and dishwasher safe. No pizza, not even a Chicago-style deep dish, will be safe while you're brandishing this cutter.
