Solving All The World’s Problems: Triangular Ziplock Bags For Storing Pizza

It’s ingenuity like this that put man on the Moon, we tell ya. Plastic bags to store leftover pizza slices in, with no wasted space? Yeah, it’s happening and the best part is that they’re not asking a ridiculous sum for them: $3 for 24. We’re not sure they offer any legitimate advantage over regular bags but hey, we give it a 10 on the novelty scale.

The Flippin’ Fantastic Makes 7 Pancakes At Once

Making pancakes isn’t particularly hard. But if you’re cooking for a large, hungry family, items like the Flippin’ Fantastic are going to make your life significantly easier. It’s a silicone mold with handles that makes it super simple to cook 7 pancakes at once. You just pour the batter mix into each space, wait for one side to cook, grab the handles and flip. It’s also perfect for cooking eggs and hash browns.

Yeah, it’s one of those informercial-style products, but it looks like a good one and is priced right at $15, and even $5 on Amazon (which is the link below). Granted, there are a number of negative reviews stemming from the product being allegedly hard to use, so your milage may vary. At $5, it’s not a huge risk to try it out.

This Spreadable Coffee Needs To Be In My Mouth Now

We love Japan for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is their relatively bizarre (to us, of course) food creations. Case in point is Snow Brand Milk’s Spreadable Coffee, set to be released in the Land of the Rising Sun this month. Yes, it seems to be exactly what it sounds like: some kind of coffee concoction that you can spread on your toast, like Nutella. And yes, it’s caffeinated. We’re not sure what goes in it, and we’re not sure we care. There’s very little chance we’ll get our hands on it this side of the pond, but if you’re in Japan you might want to keep an eye out for it.

Kitchen Tool Turns Radishes Into Super Mario Mushrooms

It’s never easy to get a kid to eat radishes. I know I never touched the darn things and now as an adult I still have trouble. Maybe if my parents would have had access to this “Ravanello – Radish Shaper”, I might’ve been fooled into thinking if I ate enough of the disgusting roots I might gain some kind of super power, like my hero Mario. It makes it fairly easy to turn a boring radish into an exact replica of a Super Mario Mushroom. There’s a fair amount of work involved in creating the edible props, as you can see in the image after the break. But it’s a cool utensil nonetheless and at $19, it’s priced just right.

MasterPan Multi-Sectional Meal Skillet

One of the biggest challenges for me, when I’m cooking, is to time things so that everything is ready and hot at the same time. This usually means having two or three pans on the stove at once, and juggling back and forth between them. With the MasterPan Multi-Sectional Meal Skillet, you get five separate cooking sections on the same pan.

Cooking an entire meal has never been easier, cleaner, and faster than with MasterPan. Divided into five sections, MasterPan is designed with a heavy gauge bottom to distribute heat flow evenly so you can cook several items at once, all on the same burner. No more juggling burners and cooking times; your whole meal is right there cooking in front of you.

– Cook multiple items evenly & at once on a single burner
– Remove food easily thanks to non-stick coating
– Wash by hand or in the dishwasher–you’re still only cleaning 1 dish
– Consume your food more safely; no PFOA, heavy metals, lead, or cadmium added

It’s not quite the kitchen revolution, but at $49, it’s an inexpensive way to add a little productivity to your food prepping repertoire.

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.
