STRAWBERRY HULLER

Friends don’t let friends waste strawberries. This nifty gadget gets inserted at the stem to remove leaves in one swift motion—and maximize the amount of fruit left behind.

Extra-sharp stainless-steel teeth make it a cinch to speedily (and efficiently) strip kernels of corn off the cob. Bonus: This tool is dishwasher-safe.

WATERMELON SLICER

Manually coring a watermelon can get…a little messy. (So. Much. Juice. On. The. Countertop.) With this gadget, you can cut—and serve—even slices and leave the liquid in the rind.

It’s the ultimate avo toast solution: This all-in-one device will split, pit and slice your avocado with minimal risk—aka pit removals gone wrong.

All you want is perfectly halved cherry tomatoes in your summer salad. This tool—which can slice up to a cup at a time—will get the job done lickety-split.

CHERRY AND OLIVE PITTER

Our favorite part about this tool is the splatter guard. (Ever tried to get cherry juice out of a white dress? We rest our case.)

PINEAPPLE CORER

Guys, this gadget, peels, cores, slices and dices a pineapple so that it’s ready to eat in seconds. Hello, miracle worker.
