A gizmo is a gadget.  Okay?

A gadget is an often small mechanical or electronic device with a practical use but often thought of as a novelty.

 

Lots of gadgets have been invented and are being sold to help people open wine bottles.  There is one that injects air into the bottle and forces out the cork.

 

I have a gizmo to heat water so I can make instant coffee.  It plugs right into the wall socket.  It heats the water very fast. The bad part is that every time I put this gizmo down on the desk I burn the wood.  I think I'd better get a ceramic plate to put under it when it's hot.
