Heart-Shaped Turner

Tovolo Heart Turner
Tovolo
Not only is a heart a whimsical shape for a turner, but the pointed end helps the thin nylon-and-silicone silicone head slip easily underneath food. The spatula is heat-safe to 400˚F and the flexible head won't damage nonstick or enameled surfaces. It's perfect for flipping heart-shaped pancakes, below. Made by Tovolo.

PriceGrabber

Fondue, whether cheese or chocolate, is one of the most romantic meals you can possibly share with your sweetie. This set from Chantal has all you need to create a perfect fondue meal. It includes a ceramic insert for cheese or chocolate fondue, or you can use it without the inserve if you're doing a fondue for meat. When you're not dipping, you can use the ceramic insert on its own as a mixing bowl, the metal exterior vessel as a 2-quart pot, and the insert and the pot together on the stove as a double boiler. A bonus whisk is included. Use this fondue set to make Fontina Fondue with Grappa and Chopped Broccoli.
