    Why It's Cool: Scrapes all the avocado out of its skin and slices it into uniform slices

  7. 451 OXO Pizza Cutter

    Why It's Cool: Bacteria resistant Silicone cleans tender mushrooms and tougher vegetables and citrus like a champ!

    Why It's Cool: An old world tool reimagined in modern materials with great functionality!
