Can you guess what it is? It's a pot scraper! It cost me all of .99 at a cooking store in a mall and I would not be without it. The two corners have different shapes to fit into the curves of different pots or pans and the plastic doesn't scratch, but gets out almost anything that's stuck on. The thin edge also works for peeling off stickers, scraping windshields, and scratching backs. Of all the silly, goofy, dumb little things I've bought on a whim, this little gadget is the most amazing. Especially for less than a buck.
See, this is how it works:

3. My Cuisinart Coffee Pot Is an Amazing Thing.
my coffee pot. It has an automatic coffee bean grinder for fresh-ground coffee whenever we want it. It's programmable. It has a carafe that keeps the coffee hot for an amazingly long time. And in a household of somewhat technologically incompetent early-morning fumblers, this is a machine that our nine-year-old can easily set up to brew.
And it makes a very good cup of coffee.
It is amazing.
