Two Eggs and a Face With Gregg’s Fried Eggs Shaper

Gregg Fried Egg Mold

Sunny side ups aren’t just mere sunny side ups when you’re cooking them with Gregg’s Fried Eggs Shaper. With a few flicks of your hand, some extra (and preferably colorful) ingredients, and a whole lot of creativity, you can transform eggs into funny faces and fun works of art with this silicon egg mold.

Ideally, the yokes go into the eyes, but there’s no rule that says you can’t just scramble the eggs so you’ll end up with a scrambled egg face that you can top with your favorite omelette toppings.

Every Pizza Hut Should Have This: NFC-Enabled Tables That Let You Choose Toppings

Pizza Hut Concept Table

 

Nothing beats pizza, fresh out of the oven. But waiting for the pie to be served can be a drag, especially if you’re starving and happen to be dining at a pizza place that’s filled to the brim with other equally-hungry diners.

In a quest to make the ordering and waiting process less of a pain, Pizza Hut teamed up with Chaotic Moon Studios to come up with this concept for an interactive NFC-enabled table. It’s essentially a gargantuan, table-sized tablet that hooks up to diners’ smartphones via NFC. It transforms into an interactive menu where you and your companions can choose what toppings you want on your pizza.

Cut Your Pie In Style: Fixie Bike Pizza Cutter

Fixie Pizza Cutter

If you never really learned how to ride a bike when you were a kid, then now’s your chance. Not ride as in, you know, on the road or anything, but ride as in with your fingers, on this Fixie Bike pizza cutter. Not only does it look like an awesome mini version of the actual Fixie, but it’s only meant to be “ridden” on top of a hot pizza pie, since it’s, you know, a pizza cutter and all.

It was thought up by doiydesign and comes with double sharp-cut discs.Continue Reading

Spare Tire Mount Grill: No Flat (Stomachs) Here!

Spare Tire Mount Grill

So this is the Spare Tire grill from Front Runner, and the first things you’ll notice are its peculiar-looking legs. In fact, the grill itself looks unlike most of the other grills on the market. The Spare Tire grill won’t be able to replace the grill that’s already in your backyard, but it will be your go-to grill for traveling or when you go camping.

There’s a reason why the grill’s solid steel legs are oriented that way. Staying true to its name, the Spare Tire grill can be hooked over a spare wheel (only those that measure 29” to 37” anyway) so you can fill your car with either more people, more meat, more coolers, or more sleeping bags. The grill is laser cut and forged from stainless steel, with grill and griddle sections so you can cook your food the way you want to.

The Spare Tire grill is available online for $125.

Droolin’ Over Bricks: LEGO Food That Looks Good Enough to Eat

LEGO Food

Above is what pancakes slathered in syrup and topped with butter would look like if we lived in a pixelated world. We don’t, but that didn’t stop master Lego builder Sachiko Akinaga from putting together this gallery of scrumptious-looking dishes using nothing but Lego bricks. It’s hard enough–at least, for me–to build something from sets that contain actual instructions, so what Sachiko achieved here is no small feat.

Aside from the most common breakfast food ever, he also built a banana (that has just been peeled), some sushi, and even a burger. Hit the break to check out the rest of his work.Continue Reading

This is a $14,000 Zombie Apocalypse Cabinet

Zombie Apocalypse Cabinet

 

If you believe that the zombie apocalypse is coming, then it’s time to save up for the Wolfram Cabinet aka the Zombie Apocalypse survival cabinet that is filled to brim with everything you need to survive. The steel-walled cabinet measures 43″ (W) x 65″ (H) x 18″ (D) and comes stocked with 170 items that includes tools, cooking utensils, camping supplies, water, food, and emergency supplies, among others.

The price? $14,500, but the retail value of all its contents combined are probably equal or more than that value. The complete list of items included can be found here, in case you’re interested.Continue Reading

US Military Creates Pizza That Lasts Up to Three Years

Military Pizza

 

Three-day old pizza tastes like crap, so I can’t imagine what three-year-old pizza will taste like. Granted, pizza is one of the most popular fastfood dishes, and while you and I take it for granted most of the time, there are others out there who have to do without–like deployed soldiers, for instance. In fact, the US Military has received numerous requests from soldiers about pizza MREs (meals ready-to-eat), which prompted them to start working on ready-to-eat pizza two years ago.

Pizza prototypes have begun leaving their ovens, with projected shelf lives of three years. Topping options include pepperoni and turkey pepperoni, and those who have tried the early prototypes compare it to pan pizza. Michelle Richardson, who is a food scientist at the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center, explains: “You can basically take the pizza, leave it on the counter, packaged, for three years and it’d still be edible.”

Sounds pretty awesome, doesn’t it?

DIY: Cereal Tea Bags, For When All You Want Is The Milk At The Bottom

cereal-tea-bag-1

Admit it: you only eat cereal so you can get to the bottom of the bowl with no cereal left and just enjoy the flavour infused milk by itself. It’s a thing, and we don’t blame you. It’s as if all the flavours just pooled at the bottom and it’s wonderful. Well, if you like it so much, you can skip the eating of the cereal altogether by making these Cereal Tea Bags. Instructables user Aaron_Geman gives us a 7 step process to remove actual tea from a teabag, and replace it with crushed cereal. It’s simple enough, although upon reflection it sure seems like a lot of effort just to avoid getting more nutrition inside of you (although… we’re not sure we should call it “nutrition” when we’re looking at FruitLoops.). But hey, you could always give this to that person in your life who’s addicted to Fruit Loop goop.
