Made the same way now as they were at their debut in 1939, Vipp Waste Bins ($250-$470) are built to last. Consisting of up to 42 separate components, each Vipp bin is hand-assembled by skilled craftsmen in Denmark, and features a uniquely designed damper mechanism to keep the lid from slamming shut when you left up on the pedal. Available in stainless steel, white, or taxi cab yellow finishes.
Cook up crisp, tasty chicken fingers, onion rings, french fries, and other bad-for-you-but-so-good treats with the Krups High Performance Deep Fryer ($400). This high capacity fryer offers dual control dials for setting the timer and temperature, with an LED to let you know when it's ready for you to drop the basket, a cool-touch, fog-proof glass lid that lets you get a clear view of your food, a dishwasher-safe lid, body, bowl and frying basket for easy cleanup, and an internal fan and carbon filter to keep oil smells to a minimum, keeping your home from smelling like the local greasy spoon.
Even the craftiest of cooks will tell you that avocados can be time-consuming and tough to deal with — so even the playing field with the Four-in-One Avocado Tool ($15). Featuring a serrated edge at one end, a curved tip, a bowl-shaped scoop, and wide-slotted masher, its ready to help you peel, pit, and grind your avocado into shape.
