You know that crazy looking thing-a-ma-jig that slices apples into perfect wedges. It looks a bit like a bizarre torture tool but you’ve grown to love it. Here are some other pretty nutty kitchen gadgets that you probably never even knew existed! At first glance, we wouldn’t have a clue what some of them are…

1. Peeling Oranges

Apparently, these little orange rings are meant to make peeling oranges easier. We aren’t exactly sure how they work, but we want them anyway!

4. Microwaving Bacon Device

We didn’t even know you could microwave bacon?! Apparently, this nifty device cooks bacon perfectly in minutes – above the fat, not in it, which reduces fat up to 35%.

5. Butter Softener

This one makes sense to us! This little holey knife allows you to make spreadable butter out of a cold, hard lump. The Stupendous Splendiferous ButterUp is actually an Aussie invention and was funded via Kickstarter. It’s now available online for only $12.
