There are some that believe that even cracking a smile in the kitchen is an insult to the culinary arts. For the rest of us, the internet's a treasure trove of fun, but often useless, gadgets for the kitchen. This DJ Grater manages to be both whimsical and useful, letting you grate cheese like you were spinning on the wheels of steel, and even perfectly portion pasta.

For just five bucks the stainless steel grater will turn blocks of cheese into fine or coarsely shredded deliciousness. And all the while you can live out your fantasy of being a world-famous turntablist, without destroying a single piece of vinyl. [DCI]
