Best thing since sliced bread

A friend of my mother's apparently thought my family was the place to come for this, but unfortunately I don't have an answer for her:

Is there a Japanese equivalent for the best thing since sliced bread, and if so, what is it? What is the closest equivalent?

Unfortunately I rather suspect I'll have to give her a more generic phrase than the English, but maybe there's something interesting out there that I haven't heard?

  • Polish translation, please

    A coworker gave my dad this bottle of vodka (it has grass in it!), and I'm dying to know what the text says. Can anyone help?

  • some Arabic (?) phrases

    These are from a novel from Philip Roth. I'm sure the author doesn't speak Arabic, so presumably he had somebody to translate and transliterate…

  • グズグズ meaning
