Normann Copenhagen Nutcracker

Whether you're fed up with using a design that hasn't changed for generations, or you just like to outfit your kitchen with nothing but the latest gadgets, pick up a Normann Copenhagen Nutcracker ($53) just in time for the holiday season. Unlike the nutcrackers you're used to — awful metallic contraptions that pinch skin and grow uncomfortable with use — this one features an aluminum middle covered in thick, flexible silicone, making it more comfortable to use. It's durable, dishwasher safe, comes in red or black, and is easy to use, so odds are, you won't be going back to that old nutcracker any time soon.
