A No. 1 bestseller, this set of wolverine-like claws make a great gift for the grill master in your life. Or, honestly, anyone who cooks (they double as salad tossers!).

“A great set of shredders for the price,” writes a reviewer who replaced an old pair by another manufacturer. “These Bear Paws are sharp, they shred meat easily and fit my hands very well. They're comfortable to hold, which is nice when shredding 10 to 20 pounds of pork for a party. I also use one claw when carving meat. I stick one claw into the meat to hold it steady while I carve with a knife, works much better than trying to use a fork...” They’re also great for mixing salads or lifting a turkey out of the roasting pan.

If you're constantly scrubbing up the counter after cooking a spaghetti dinner, these grippers may be the solution for you. Available in red or black and nine, 12 or 15 inches, the tongs will help keep your kitchen clean.

Plus, the waffle design of the silicone itself makes for an extra-grippy hold so your noodles won't escape before they reach the bowl.

One clean customer declares, "A super design idea, silicone grabbing ends so perfect for non-stick coated cookware. Buy some for your friends and they'll think of you every time they use them."
