Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day properly with a BeerTender


By Luke Anderson

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up fast, and unless I’m mistaken, that’s one of the biggest drinking holidays here in the US. I’m not much of a drinker myself (too much Jack on my 21st I believe) so I don’t really pay much attention. If you’re one that loves to celebrate the holiday properly, why not set up a tap right on your kitchen counter?

The BeerTender is more than happy to accommodate to your drinking needs. Just toss in a 5-litre mini-keg and you’re all set. You can take this just about anywhere there’s a flat surface, so you can keep the celebration going in every room. You’ll need to cough up $299 for one, but just remember that the money is going towards a very special holiday celebration.

Philips Introduces a 1200 Watt Toaster

1200 Watt Toaster

By Luke Anderson

Are you one of those people that needs all of their appliances to be as high-tech and powerful as possible? When I first saw this 1200 watt toaster from Philips, I immediately pictured Tim Allen pushing down the lever and grunting something about more power. Seriously, my microwave doesn’t even have that much juice.

The 1200W HD2618 toaster not only looks fancy, but has fancy features like one-sided toasting for bagels and a digital display that counts down the seconds until your toast is ready. This powerful manly toaster will set you back $120.

Personal Mini Microwave – It Will Be Mine

Personal Mini Microwave

By Luke Anderson

It’s no surprise to many people that I’m a bit lazy. It’s not to say that I don’t get my excersise every day, but rather I go out of my way to make sure that I have to do as little as possible when I’m in my office. I’ve always said that I’ve got pretty much everything in here to live except for a toilet and a microwave. I don’t have a toilet for obvious reasons, and I have no intentions of getting one. The microwave is more a matter of space than anything, which is why I’m in love with this Personal Mini Microwave.

There’s not much to say about this little guy, as we all (hopefully) know what it is and does. It takes up less than a cubic foot of space, which would be perfect for my office. I’m pretty sure that I could reheat at least a single slice of pizza in there, as well as pot pies and other frozen treats. It’s going to set me back $129.95, but I know I’ll get my money’s worth.

Cooltone Fridge Does It All, Unnecessarily

Cooltone Fridge

By Evan Ackerman

Do you ever feel as though your refrigerator is lacking something, but you just can’t put your finger on it? Never worry about it ever again by setting yourself up with the Cooltone mini fridge, which has the following built in: a digital top loading CD player, integrated speakers with audio out and headphone jacks, an auxiliary in jack to connect your iPod, a digital AM/FM radio with a LCD display and integrated alarm clock with snooze button, and even a freakin’ remote control. That’s not even the end of it: it has “cool ambient blue lights” all over the place and some sort of Quick Cool feature that “gets the Cooltone cooling within seconds.” It has a capacity of 22 liters, which equals about 20 cans of beer (or six wine bottles if you’re a classy sort). All yours for only $260.
