Lives may not depend on your coring an apple just right or cutting a neat slice of pizza, but it’s nice to know that the same expertise that goes into making surgical tools is behind this latest line of kitchen gadgets. Made by California-based Van Vacter Products, the tools all feature thick black handles similar to those on a motorbike, for a comfortable, nonslip grip.

Each tool is specific to a task—an avocado knife, a cheese grater—and has well-thought-out features. The pizza knife ($20), for example, has a second wheel that trails behind the cutter to break through any remaining cheese or crust. Needless to say, all the tools are scalpel sharp. You can buy them at CoolFoodTools.com.
