The Hot Glue Gun Is A Thing That Exists

fondoodler-1

Because we’re definitely too healthy, physically, as a nation, it’s clearly time to make it easier to put cheese on everything. The Fondoodler is a device whose only purpose is to melt cheese and extrude it over anything you want. The name comes from a combination of Fondue and Doodle, because you’ll be doodling with your melted cheese (did you know that ‘Fondue’ means ‘melted’ in French?). You can use it to decorate your dishes, caulk your bathtub, make 3D cheese structures or squirt it straight into your face. Beware: hot cheese is hot. It works with just about any type of cheese that melts, from processed crap to fancy aged goudas.

It’s $25.

Foodsniffer Tells You If Your Meat Has Gone Bad

screen-shot-2016-11-25-at-7-25-57-am

How many times have you pulled out a three day old uncooked steak from the fridge and stuck it right up your nose, wondering if it’s still good to cook. Or taken a hearty whiff from that tuna steak in the hopes it hasn’t gone bad. It’s not always easy to be sure and I’ve found myself asking others for their opinion before taking a chance on some potentially bad meat. Well with the Foodsniffer, a handheld connected smart device, I wouldn’t have to ask anyone at all. I’d simply connect it to my smartphone, prop it up right against the meat and take a measurement of the gases emanating from it. In seconds I’d be able to know if it’s safe to ingest or if it gets tossed. No taking chances, no second guessing, and no botulism! It’s $89.

Poke Ball Serving Bowl Set

jgpo_poke_ball_serving_bowl_set

Pokemon is all the rage these days, but will it still be relevant in a few months? Is the rage even as ragey as it was when it was first released? We can’t answer those questions, we don’t know, but we do wonder if you’ll still be as infatuated with this Poke Bowl Serving Set once you’re done catching pocket monsters.

The Poké Ball Serving Bowls come with two dishwasher safe halves of the classic ball used in the Poké-verse. The red top and white bottom can slot together and will equal the approximate size of a volleyball. Sure, that is more than adequate space for your pet hamster to roll around in while you pretend it’s a Pokémon, but that might count as hamster abuse so don’t do it. Instead, fill it with tasty snacks. Preferably the cheesy variety.

Tee hee… hamsters are funny. Anyway, if you want your own Pokemon-themed serving set, you’ll have to spend all of $20.

Does Anyone Really Need A Keurig For Cookies?

chip_1

It’s pretty amazing how many appliances are starting to use the single-serve, pod-based, Keurig-like method of delivering their goods to your mouth. The latest one to come to our attention is the CHiP Cookie Oven, that uses raw cookie pods with a barcode; the device scans the code, then uploads baking information to the appliance through WiFi. It’ll know just what temperature to set itself to, and for how long to circulate its hot air over your snacks, which will be ready in roughly 10 minutes. The cookie pods will be sold to you through a subscription service, which, depending on the service level, will give you cookies ranging in price from 88 cents to $2. Full retail price is expected to be $249, but the current Kickstarter campaign will give Early Birds a CHiP Cookie Oven for as little as $99.

The CakeDozer Helps Get Your Slice Of Pie Off With Ease

cakedozer6

It’s the little things. Like when you’re using a regular pie server and you’re transferring one delicate slice onto a plate, and the darn thing won’t just slide off, so you’re stuck having to unceremoniously flop it over to its side. That’s a little thing that shouldn’t annoy anyone, but does. So an item like the CakeDozer is created to solve this non-problem. It’s got a little bulldozer on the handle that gently pushes off whatever is on it. It’s not going to change anyone’s life, but might make the process of serving cake and pie just a little bit easier, so its $16.50 asking price seems more than justified.

Seasoning Stix Season From The Inside

stix-2

Seasoning Stix looks like a cool product. It’s a flavour stick you jam into your food, and it flavours it from the inside.

Seasoning Stix are solid “sticks” of seasonings, spices and herbs, which are inserted into meat, fish and poultry prior to cooking to season from the inside out.

At approximately 110F food science takes over. Water is driven out, Seasoning Stixs begin to liquify and the meat absorbs the seasonings like a sponge.

It’s the first major change in seasonings in 1,000 years.

So unique it’s already been award three U.S. Patents.

It’s currently available for $35, which will give you over 100 stix of different flavours, like Classic Garlic and Backyard Barbecue.

KFC Is Giving Away Fried Chicken Sunscreen. Yes, Really

kfc-fried-chicken-sunscreen

Now more than ever, the expression “roasting in the sun” will be a little bit more than figurative. Although, technically, that’s not right either since KFC doesn’t roast its chicken. No, we suppose that if you’re one of the lucky few who managed to snag a bottle of KFC Extra Crispy Sunscreen, you’ll be able to tell your friends you’re “frying in the sun” instead. Yes, they’re all sold out now, sadly, but for a while anyone who visited ExtraCrispySunscreen.com would be given a free bottle of SPF 30 sunscreen that smells just like KFC’s delicious staple item. The smell is described by one pretentious people.com writer as “absolutely revolting”, which we take to mean “arm-bitingly delicious”. Yes, we’re sad they’re all gone, and we’re kinda hoping anyone who managed to snag one will put them up on eBay.

Clever Kebab Maker Is Perfect For Summer

clever-kebab-maker-xl

There are few things more satisfying than barbecued meat on a stick. But what would be the point of living in civilized society if we didn’t invent some kind of tool for making the process of getting the meat on the skewers easier? The Clever Kebab Maker makes it super simple to just layer your meats and veggies inside, stick the skewers right through the openings, and cuts your protein into perfect 1.2″ cubes. You can easily make 16 kebabs at once, and it doesn’t have to be meat only; the device will work with cakes, fruit, or pretty much anything you’d wanna eat off a stick. It’s all of $35.
