Actually the pronouns make important distinctions in the example you provided and are not redundant: Quieres comer. Means, "You want to eat" Quieres comerlo. Means "You want to eat it", with "it" being that thing that has previously been named and the pronoun "lo" stands for. Quieres comer? Hay un yogur en la nevera Do you want to eat? ...

The indirect object pronouns used in your examples... Comérmelo, Comértelo... Those pronouns, when used with comer, indicate eating all of something. To eat it all up. To lavish all of it. To engorge it all, consume it all. So if you asked someone `¿Quieres comértelo?, you would literally be asking if that person wants to eat all of something.
