What is it?

Okay, I'm posting this picture of some of the pieces I've collected that I'm not sure of what they are. I'm guessing the item on the far left is a scrubby holder. The green item on the far right could be a lettuce corer. If you have any idea of what the other 3 items are, please, PLEASE jump in and let me know what they are!

HI! I'm a TW consultant. The 4th one in is called a cheese knife. Used to cut firm cheeses I assume. But I use them to cut my Rice Krispy treats or salads etc.when I make them in my TW containers, do they don't get gouged up like they would with a sharp knife!

2nd from the left is a cherry/olive picker. I assume for picking maraschino cherries and olives out of the jars.

the one with hooks on both ends is a cord keeper, you wrap electrical cords to shorten them

I just came across a set of poker chips that have the TUPPER inside the oval. They are called "Silent Partners" Any ideas?

It's hard for me to think of the cheese knife as actually being used for cheese. Growing up in our household, this tool was used to cut brownies and other bars, like Sassy Mom's Rice Krispie treats. It's an absolute necessity for use in non-stick pans to prevent scratching and help maintain the delicate finish, but works well in traditional metal pans, too. By not using metal table knives or other sharp knives in the pans, you can prevent the typical scratched up bottoms and keep them new looking. Anytime I find one of these tools, I pick it up and put it away for later. They are a bit brittle and don't hold up like traditional Tupperware plastic does.
