    I use the little wire rack that came with my rice cooker to put on top of the paper towels when I cook french fries or chicken strips. It keeps the food from making solid contact with the food and allows the steam to escape without making the first batch soggy before the last batch is done.

    I use my tomato shark for digging bad spots out of potatoes.

    I use a pastry cutter for chopping hard boiled eggs for egg salad.

    Love the wire rack idea! This will come in handy when I make a batch of waffles. Right now I use my spatter screen while they are cooling so they don't get soggy > it catches the crumbs

    I use a medium-hole grater for grating hard-boiled eggs for egg salad (for sandwiches). That way they're not too fine...but not huge chunks, either. And they grate very quickly. Just watch for sharp edges and fingers. icon_eek.gif icon_biggrin.gif

    I was gifted a mushroom slicer (similar to an egg slicer). I don't think Ive ever used it to slice mushrooms. So I use it to slice through hard boiled eggs and then I remove from the slicer and continue to hop them smaller for egg salad.

    When I have a small bottle that I cannot get the lid off, I use my nutcrackers to grip the top and loosen the lid. (I just had to do this on a jar of soy sauce and thought "I need to post this in that thread about gadgets being used for other purposes.") Try it, it works!
