Mmm crab legs — ever so tasty and ever such a pain to crack open. Ease some of the stress of cracking those tough claws with the Chef'n Wisecracker Crab Cracker & Splitter ($15). Simply push it into the shell, press the handle, release and split, and your crab is exposed. The handle can be used on claws and to pick delicate meat. Now all you have to do is get better at not dripping butter on yourself when grubbing on crab, and everything will be fine.
Yes, the grill in the summer is versatile — cooking nearly every meal, if you want. But pizza? Pizza? Yes, you heard right — you can now cook pizza on your grill, thanks to the Grill-Top Pizza Stone ($100). The stone, specifically for gas grills, is made of porous clay, which sits on a raised stainless steel platform. There is a back-splash to keep all the goodies on the stone, and a thermometer to keep an eye on temperatures.
Wooden chopping blocks are a familiar sight in any kitchen, and so are knife blocks that hold the cutlery. Now you can combine the two ideas and add a little bit of festive atmosphere with the Throwzini Wood Block ($TBD). The block is shaped just like the ladies who stand in front of the board during knife throwing shows, and there are magnets hidden under the surface of the wood that hold the knives close. This could have made several horror movie struggles a lot more interesting.
