Watch out, Bobby Flay.

If you're one of the three people on this planet who still uses speed dial, it's time to take your local pizza place off it. From a wine decanter to a corn stripper — it's not what it sounds like, we promise! — these 10 gadgets will make you actually want to get into your kitchen at home and whip up your own meals.

1. Salad-to-Go Container

Packing a salad for on-the-go dining is a real tough choice: You can either store every single ingredient in its own separate container so you're toting a small herd of Tupperware, or you can throw it all in one container and wind up with a bunch of wilted greens and soggy, dressing-saturated croutons. The Salad-to-Go Container eliminates that debate by combining a large bottom bowl, multiple topping compartments, a separate dressing vessel, and clip-on plastic utensils in one container, keeping your salad fresh all day.

2. Grape & Tomato Slicer

When it comes to grapes and tomatoes — heck, even grape tomatoes — chopping up small round fruits has never been easier thanks to the aptly named Grape & Tomato Slicer. Use it to quarter a handful of grapes at dinnertime to make them safer for you kiddos to scarf down, or pull it out when you need to dice up a couple cherry tomatoes to give your salad a juicy oomph.

3. Avocado Joy Slicer

If you're passing on home ownership in favor of avocado toast — an excellent choice, by the way — make sure you've got the Avocado Joy Slicer within reach. By combining all the tools you need to cut up a Persea americana, including a knife, stainless steel pitter, and a set of blades for uniform slices, this little gadget makes prepping avocados a breeze.

4. Herb Mill & Grinder

Mouth-watering meals are just a couple twists away with the Herb Mill & Grinder. (Note: No, not that kind of "herb.") Simply load it up with loose-leaf varieties like cilantro, oregano, or basil, then rotate its soft-touch ergonomic handle to mince them into fine bits for fresh seasoning.

5, Stainless Steel Herb Scissors

Any way you slice it, the Stainless Steal Herb Scissors are a must if you've got a home garden. Harvesting fresh herbs for your food right off a plant has never been easier; in just two snips, you'll get ten knife chops worth of herbs.

6. Eravino Wine Decanter

Individually handblown from a single piece of crystalline glass using state-of-the-art pulled stem technology, each Eravino Wine Decanter is as unique as your own taste in vino. Their elegant shape isn't just for aesthetic, though: Eravino's artisans craft them with superior balance, clarity, tonal quality, and heat-resistance in mind so you'll savor every single sip of your favorite wine.

Sale price: $19.99, 66% off the original price of $59.99. Buy it here.

7. Nuvita French Press Coffee Maker

Hipsters are right to love French press coffee, a smooth, fragrant brew that tastes like it came straight from the bean. If you want a cup of it at home, don't worry about wasting time in line at that trendy new industrial-chic coffee house down the street; instead, just brew it in your own kitchen using the Nuvita Fresh Press Coffee Maker. Made with a stainless steel frame, heat-resistant glass and a strong plastic handle, the Nuvita's durable construction means you can even take it on the go. (After all, you never know when that caffeine craving will strike next.)

Sale price: $13.99, 65% off the original price of $39.99. Buy it here.

8. Corn Stripper

Shaving the kernels off a corn cob with a knife is too much work for too little payoff. The Corn Stripper's stainless steel blade, on the other hand, leaves no kernel un-cobbed, stripping all of those sweet, yellow niblets off their core into its attached container for easy meal prep.

Sale price: $9.99, 33% off the original price of $14.99. Buy it here.

9. Nuvita 6-Piece Stainless Steel Knife Set with Magnetic Wooden Block

Cleaver knife? Check. Bread knife? Check. Carving knife, utility knife, and pairing knife? Check, double check, and checkity-check. The ultra-sharp Nuvita Stainless Steel Knife Set has everything you could possibly need to slice, dice, bone, and julienne like a pro, plus a magnetic cutting board to store it all conveniently and stylishly.

Sale price: $19.99, 66% off the original price of $59.99. Buy it here.

10. 4-in-1 Foldable Slicer and Grater

Counter space is the most prime real estate in your kitchen by far, so versatile, collapsable tools are virtually priceless. The 4-in-1 Foldable Slicer and Grater fits that bill to a T, assembling into a stand-up tool with coarse, fine, and ribbon-cut grates and a slicer, then folding in a snap to clear up your countertop.
