5 Weirdly Specific Kitchen Gadget Deals to Make Food Prep Easier


Alton Brown is a big proponent of not using tools that are unitaskers. Sure, they can make quick work of your food prep chores, but then you have to find somewhere to store them. And if storage is already tight? Suddenly, that avocado slicer really doesn't seem worth it. However, we came across a handful of items that might make some of your food prep a little easier. Check out our roundup of the week's best kitchen deals to find a microwave egg maker, grape cutter, and more.

OXO Tot Grape Cutter

Many adults will look at this and scoff. "A grape cutter?" they'll ask. "What a pointless tool!" But it can actually be useful for parents who want to quickly cut grapes into quarters for their kiddos to eat. And it'll ease the worrisome parent's mind about whether or not Junior's afternoon snack is a choking hazard. It cuts most seedless grapes and grape tomatoes into quarters.

Gotham Steel 5-Quart Non-Stick Pasta Pot
Store: eBay
Price: $21.59 via code "PRESDAY" EXPIRED
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $3
Expiration: February 20

A pot might not seem like a unitasker, mostly due to the fact that you can theoretically cook a multitude of items in it. Still, this non-stick pasta pot is a very particular tool because of the built-in strainer. While that makes draining your linguine easier, it would also be great for draining boiled potatoes, eggs, veggies, and more. It features non-stick ceramic and titanium construction and a glass lid.

Oenophilia Porto Sippers 4-Pack
Store: Amazon
Price: $17.35 EXPIRED
Shipping: Free shipping via Prime
Lowest By: $3
Expiration: February 27

These wine glasses look a little funny, but after a couple of glasses, we seriously doubt you or your guests will care. The Porto Sippers have designs that date back to 17th-century Europe, which might even make you feel rather fancy. These 2.75-oz. glasses are hand-blown and allow wine to be sucked from the bottom of the glass, which reduces the oxidation of the wine.

Factory-Second All-Clad Panini Press
Store: Home & Cook Outlet
Price: $39.99 EXPIRED
Shipping: $3.99 s&h
Lowest By: $36
Expiration: February 28

If you like fancy, flat sandwiches, this Editors' Choice deal is for you. Add this non-stick panini press to your cookware collection and bring the bistro home. It's great for crafting a sandwich that would be labeled "artisanal" at your local cafe, but it's also good for making the staple peanut butter and jelly more interesting. (Scroll down to find it in the first row of items.) This two-piece press features hard-anodized aluminum construction and stainless steel handles.

Note: This factory-second item may show minor cosmetic blemishes or dents, but there will be no defects that affect performance.

Chef Buddy Microwave Egg Maker
Store: Amazon
Price: $3.99 EXPIRED
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $1

Eggs are one of the easiest dishes to make. Practically anyone who can handle a pan can scramble or fry eggs. But if you don't want to fool with a pan, this microwave egg maker can certainly do in a pinch. It cooks up to two eggs in under a minute, and if you want to make things interesting, add your favorite cheese, veggies, or meat for a quick omelette.

Note: This Add-on Item ships with qualifying orders over $25.
