Some of these cracked me up. I do love the unicorn cookie cutter though.

Why is the unicorn cookie cutter surprising? I've seen way more surprising cookie cutters out there.
Also, the panda rice mold/seaweed punch set is SUPER adorable.

The Chicki-barfing egg seperator is hilarious. I collect chicken stuff, especially kitchen stuff, so I might have to get that for myself.

The unicorn cookie cutter was cute, but yeah boring.

i have a guinea pig shaped cookie cutter. it's hard to tell what it is until you ice it since guinea pigs are especially fat blobs.

Yes please! EVeryone post pictures of your cookie cutters!

And, I have been lusting after a cotton candy maker for several years now.

Yes! I don't even know why I bought it because I hated all garlic presses I tried prior to it and thought they were pointless. But somehow I ended up with it and I love it!

Pretty sure my brother consults a similar list for Christmas presents every year.

I do actually have a whoopie pie pan though, that I bought of my own accord. Still haven't used it.

I like this idea. I don't own a single cookie cutter and would like to buy some awesome ones.

I don't get the Martini atomizer. What are you supposed to spray with it?

The Martini atomizer is for making very very dry martinis. You fill it with vermouth and spritz your martini with it, or spritz the glass before you pour the gin/vodka in. The only way to make a drier martini is to pick up the bottle of vermouth and return it to the shelf without ever opening it.

I have one, and it is my favorite kitchen gadget ever. You peel the garlic, stick it in the pod, and then roll it back and forth across your counter top like a toy car. There are cogs in there to make the blades spin when you roll the wheels. Mine gets used about every other day and is still going strong after a year (or two?). It really does mince the garlic perfectly. Plus, it is fun.

Also, I have a bunch of plastic containers in the shape and color of the veggie/fruit that they are meant to hold that are super useful and adorable.

Because of this: http://blog.khymos.org/2012/01/19/recre ... ellations/
i bought this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/COOKIE-CUTTER ... 35c246218b
but I still get a bit of leftover dough.

Ma favourite cookie cutter is this one: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/7-5cm-Cat-Coo ... 23175dbf8b

I also have a set of mainstream ones: hearts, stars, flowers etc... and a round one for gyoza wrappers.

I'd love a good tessellation cookie cutter. I'm always trying to maximize the dough in between cuts. There will always be leftovers, because you never roll out a perfect circle/rectangle/etc, but it would be nice to minimize it.

I know, but I get a bit of leftover dough between puzzle pieces, too. It's not perfect.

I want Escher cookie cutters. Look at this:

Haha, yes. I have had requests for 'super dry' martinis before (as a bartender and hosting parties at home) and I will take the vermouth, and tip it over the glass without taking the cap off, then put it back. Dry enough for you? ;)
