Nut Butter Stirrerbutter stiir

If you love natural peanut butter but don’t love the oil that accumulates, the handy Chef’n Peanut Butter Stirrer allows you to easily mix the oil in without a mess. Twist the lid onto a 16- or 26-ounce jar, slide the stir wand through the slot, then slowly turn until everything is blended. The unique lid design scrapes peanut butter off the stir wand when removed from jar. Dishwasher-safe. $14.99

Recycled SkilletEco skillet

Manufactured in Switzerland from 100 percent recycled aluminum, the Kuhn Rikon New Life Skillet is eco-friendly and efficient. The durable, nonstick pan is made from aluminum, one of the best materials for cookware, as it stores and spreads heat evenly for fast cooking. Featuring an ergonomic, heat-resistant handle, this pan can be used on the stovetop or in the oven up to 460°. Clean it by hand or stick it in the dishwasher. Available in 8-, 9.5- and 11-inch; $128–$156.

Spin and StoreTurntable

Organize snacks, bars, spices or other small items in a YouCopia Crazy Susan Turntable. Stash everything in the six removable bins with handles or the center cup; then spin and select what you want. Nonstick feet hold the turntable steady in a cabinet, or on a desk or table. Also works well for organizing small items in the bathroom, office, kids room or a craft room. $29.99

Handy Chopperchopper

Chop herbs, veggies and fruit for sauces, salsas and salads in a snap with the Kuhn Rikon Pull Chop. A few pulls on the handle rotates blades inside this manual “food processor”—the more you pull, the finer the ingredients are sliced and diced. Also handy for chopping ingredients like nuts, boiled eggs and breadcrumbs. A storage lid lets you store ingredients in the fridge until ready to use. Dishwasher-safe, too. $32

Eco CupMiiR

You can feel good about drinking hot or cold beverages from a MIIR Climate+ Tumbler. The spill-proof lid is made from 100 percent recycled plastic—that can also be recycled—and the double-wall, vacuum-insulated cup uses 25 percent less stainless steel than other equivalent cups. Plus, a percentage of every sale goes to organizations working on social and environmental change. Available in 12- and 16-ounce sizes. $24.95–$29.95
