2. Mora 9151P Fillet Knife ($22)

Cooking fish is easy with this French ceramic steamer. Just drizzle fillets or whole fish with olive oil and lemon and, "for a little dinner theater," carry the dish straight from the oven to the table. Buy it at Amazon.

"The clear winner" among seafood scissors, this pair "snips through tough lobster claws and delicate shrimp shells with ease, leaving the meat within pristine and ready for plucking." Buy it at Amazon.

5. PaperChef Culinary Parchment Cooking Bags ($13 for 30)
