Slam Dunk

If you love dunking sandwich cookies in milk, this is the kitchen tool for you! The Dipr ($2.99, thedipr.com) is "the ultimate cookie spoon."

By holding onto the frosting of cookies, which doesn't disintegrate in liquids as quickly, you can dunk longer and with less mess. Plus, it's kid-friendly: The Dipr is made of flexible medical-grade plastic.

Want S'More?

Get ready for summer cookouts with the S'more to Love (Starting at $9.99 for a 4-piece unit, Yahoo! Shopping).

This unique gadget looks like a grill basket, but it's meant for marshmallows and graham crackers! Best of all, you can use it on your grill or in the oven, so campfire fun doesn't have to be limited to the outdoors.

Drink It Up

Talk about a big gulp — Bubba Brands' 34 oz. Travel Mug and 52 oz. Original Mug (in black, blue or purple; $8.99 for 34-oz., $9.99 for 52-oz; amazon.com) are some of the biggest cups we've ever seen!

Made with foam insulation sandwiched between two walls, these enormous mugs are designed to keep your beverage at the perfect temperature for up to 6 hours for hot drinks and 24 hours for cold drinks.

Flower Power

A cute gift for the little chef in your life, Kizmos' Flower Pot Tool Set ($29.99, lifetimebrands.com/kizmos) is a collection of kitchen gadgets — a turner, slotted spoon, ladle, spoon, and masher — designed to look like flowers, housed in a ceramic vase.

Unlike real blossoms, this bouquet is made from heat-resistant nylon and is dishwasher-safe.

Holy Guacamole

Avocados can be slippery little buggers, which makes slicing them tricky — and potentially unsafe.

To the rescue: The OXO 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer (in white or green, $9.99, oxo.com) lets you split, pit, and slice avocados with one tool.

Shake It Out

The BlenderBottle SportMixer ($14.99 for 28oz and $12.99 for 20oz, amazon.com) is popular for blending up protein shakes — but when put to the test, the manufacturer claims it can also whip cream in two minutes.

Made from Eastman Tritan plastic so it won't retain scents, the shaker couldn't be easier to use: Insert ingredients for anything from pancakes to smoothies, drop in the BlenderBall, then shake.

Line It Up

If you like things just so, then this is the cutting board of your dreams. Fred & Friends' The Obsessive Chef cutting board ($26, amazon.com) is laid out with a grid so you can julienne as precisely as possible. Get chopping!

This silicone tool is designed to help avoid burning the bottom of food and make sure that your meal doesn't mix with any greasy drippings. Plus you can use it as a trivet, for a little extra style on your table!
