Chopped Stainless-Steel Cleaver
What's to love: Inspired by the television cooking competition, Chopped, and made of long-lasting high-carbon steel.
What does it do: The family chef will find many uses for this 7-inch cleaver that is strong enough for chopping meats and fish, even small bones, or slicing and dicing fruits and vegetables. The knife is designed to keep its sharp edge longer when properly maintained. It has a full tang which means the blade and handle are a single piece of steel with the grips riveted on. Suggested retail price is $40.
Raycop RS2 Allergen Vacuum
What's to love: Helps reduce dust mite matter and pollen from fabric surfaces such as mattresses or upholstery.
What does it do: Raycop uses a patented technology to reduce allergens and sanitize fabrics. The hand-held machine uses pulsating pads and a rotating bristle to loosen debris and suction that will lift dirt but not trap it in fabric. A HEPA filter traps the small particles. In addition, UV light eliminates bacteria and viruses. The vacuum cleaner is designed to lay flat on the fabric, and settings can be adjusted to the type of fabric so that the machine will glide over the surface easily. The vacuum sells for $349.99.
