Many people, including the delightful Alton Brown, dislike unitasker gadgets. I'm not one of them. What's wrong with a unitasker if it is a joy to use, and you find yourself using it frequently? Take for instance, this garlic skinner ($5).
Just insert a clove of garlic into the tube, place your open hand over the tube, and roll back and forth a few times. The rubber will tear the skin off the clove, making it ready for dicing, grating, or pressing. It makes a pleasant rustling sound, too!
