This Ceramic Pot Minder Prevents Boil-Overs

ceramic-pot-minder-prevents-messy-boil-overs-xl

Ever cooked pasta at home? Most people have, so you should be familiar with the situation where you’re getting the water up to temp and everything is pretty calm, until suddenly it blasts past the boiling point and the whole pot starts to shake and rattle in excited ebullition. It’s also dangerous if you’re standing around it when it happens, so we’re somewhat intrigued by the Ceramic Pot Minder from JBK Pottery. It’s small ceramic disc that works in two ways. One is by chattering at the bottom of the pot when temps start to get close to boiling, alerting you that you should come back and tend to your cooking. The other is by “modif[ying] the size and number of bubbles rising to the top of the pot, preventing messy boil overs.” It’s made from fully vitrified porcelain ceramic, and should be able to be used over and over again. $4!

You could keep your ties in a heap, like most guys we know do. Or you could get the Motorized Tie Rack, and be ‘that guy’. You know, the one who calls you over to his bedroom, excited to show off his latest gadget?

This rack accommodates 72 ties, and 8 belts. The LEDs stay on for 10 seconds after the rack stops moving, to give you some time to find your way around in a dark closet. It’s all of $49.

The Whisker Dam Protects Your ‘Stache From Dipping Into Your Suds

whisker-dam-7

It’s the little inventions that get us excited. Tiny doodads that can make a world of difference in some settings. Take the Whisker Dam for instance. It’s a metal object whose only purpose is to keep your moustache dry while you drink beer. This is a problem any self-respecting moustachioed man will know about: suds-infused hairs following a good sip of a properly poured beer. Well, the Whisker Dam attaches to almost any drinking vessel and creates a smaller opening through which your beer can flow, but which keeps your face adornments nice and dry.

The Whisker Dam is an easy to use solution for guarding your stache’ from the indulgent beverages one may consume. When it comes to moustache guards you will not find a more premium product. Made from 100% Copper, dressed with a timeless patina and coated with a non-toxic barrier, the Whisker Dam has been handcrafted to perfection.

Granted, you may also miss out on the head itself, which beer aficionados will tsk-tsk you for, but if all you want is to get some liquid cereal down your gullet without making a mess of your facial hair, we totally dig the $20 purchase.

Shoulder Bag With Pop-Up Tablet Holder

bagtab2k-005

We thought the whole point of tablets is that you could easily hold them in your hands and wouldn’t need, you know, a lap to put them down on. Still, their portability doesn’t seem to be enough to discourage accessory makers from giving you the option of hands-free operation and we suppose that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Thanko’s got this Shoulder Bag With Pop-up Tablet Holder that ingeniously transforms from a bag, into a specially angled tablet holder. Just unzip, flip and enjoy using your tablet at hip level, while retaining full usage of both hands to do anything you want.

It’s 4,980 yen, or roughly $42.
