If you are making salads at home, you know washing greens can be tedious. It’s hard to rinse and dry them without making a soggy mess. That is exactly why this salad spinner is great: it’s fast, easy and efficient. A simple push of the top and the greens spin dry (In fact, a child’s toy top was the inspiration.). The OXO Salad Spinner can even stop on a dime with its nifty brake. And the plastic bowl is so simple and elegant, it can go right on the table for serving.

Everyone loves brunch, and everyone loves poached eggs. But you probably never poach at home because it’s tough to do well — you lose half of it in the swirl, and they might not taste great. OXO’s Egg Poacher makes poaching eggs incredibly easy. The silicone product is curved like an hourglass to cradle the egg and its narrow funnel guides the egg into the water so it remains intact. Thanks to a carefully designed hole pattern optimizing flow, the water swirls around the egg to create that perfect poach. You will be the toast of your brunch circuit when you can make Eggs Benedict at home.

There is something whimsical about this tool. The shape is pleasing at a glance, and once you try it (all three ingenious functions) no doubt you’ll fall in love. The blade end safely slices through avocado, without danger of the dreaded avocado-hand-injury. The pitting feature quickly ejects pits with a simple flick — much safer than using a knife. And the fan end scoops and cuts the avocado into perfect, plateable pieces. With this tool, you’ll safely and happily enjoy avocados like a pro.
