A Swan Ladle Is The Best Kind Of Ladle

swanky-2

You guys might remember the furiously popular Nessie Ladle from back in 2015. It was so popular, it spawned spinoff products like the Nessie Tea Infuser and the Mama Nessie Colander. While cool, all these products were based off the “Loch Ness Monster” concept but now the designers, Ototo, are back with a new twist. It’s called The Swanky and its claim to fame is that it floats on top of your soup pot. So the same ladle with which you’ll scoop out soup with will also float on top of it, looking graceful and elegant and somewhat reminiscent of a swan. It’s kind of cool, though we’re not sure it has the same appeal as the Nessie line of products. Still, the Kickstarter is fully funded and a $17 pledge will get you your own, so there’s definitely some interest out there.

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.

Polygon Is A 4-in-1 Origami Measuring Spoon

polygon-4-in-1-origami-24320

Good design has always attracted us, and the Polygon spoon is as elegant a design as we’ve seen in quite some time. It’s a measuring spoon that’s flat in its natural state, but when pinched at the appropriate places it folds up into an appropriately sized receptacle. There is a tablespoon Polygon and a teaspoon Polygon, each one featuring 1/2, 1, 1-1/2, and 2 T, and 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and 1 tsp, respectively. It’s really easy to use, wipes clean with just one swipe of a wet rag when laying flat, and lets you wipe off sticky liquids (think honey) back into their receptacle for little to no wastage. It’s even possible to use it as a spatula with which to spread whatever you just scooped with it. The fully funded Kickstarter will require a $12 pledge to secure your own pair of Polygons, with shipping in January 2017.

Breakfast Sandwich Maker Machine

eggs-machine-1

The following is a featured article. -Ed.

Steps. That’s what you’ want to avoid when getting up in the morning, when you’re barely able to comprehend what planet you’re on. Steps to do this, or steps to do that. It would be infinitely better if all the steps could be combined into one, so that you wouldn’t have to think about what you’re supposed to be doing. Kind of like how this Automatic Eggs Hamburger Maker combines all the steps that go into the preparation of a breakfast sandwich right into one. It has room for the eggs, which will fry in their own pan, as well as a separate compartment for the meat, and for the bread. Just toss all the ingredients in their respective place and the sammich maker takes care of the rest. The best part is that it’s only $36.18 and if you use the coupon code “GBHOME12” you can get an additional 12% off. As a matter of fact, if you check out this page, you’ll see a list of popular kitchen items that will also work with the same 12% off coupon.

Egg Ninjas Make Handling Hard Boiled Eggs Easier

1-312

Look, it’s not like this is a serious problem in the kitchen, but handling recently boiled eggs does require a little bit of finesse. That’s why the Egg Ninjas were created. Stick an egg in the silicone suction cup, leave the ring tag outside the boiling water pot and when it’s ready, just pull it out. You can then set it down on a table as shown in the picture, to let it cool. As it does so, your quests will giggle a little at your egg ninjas, then they’ll get bored of the novelty and just eat the darn thing. But at $13, it’s an inexpensive way to add a little bit of whimsy to your breakfast.

fork2as

3D printing tech keeps advancing, and we’re starting to see some pretty eye-catching stuff become available for purchase. This set of utensils from Francis Bitoni Studio uses 3D metal printing tech, and is finished in sterling silver. It’s called Setae Flatware, and features four metal strands that intertwine gracefully to finish in a point. Or… in little bowl in the case of the spoon. Or… an edge, in the case of the knife. Well, you get the point. They’re very nice looking and would fit right in the Lord of the Rings universe. Luckily for you, they’re available in this universe, although we don’t know for how much.

Pizza On Your Gas Stovetop? Yes, It’s Possible

Pizzeria-Pronto-Stovetop-Pizza-Oven

Getting a good pie requires a few elements, the most important of which is a really hot pizza oven. It’s not ever over that reaches the 600F that usually yield great results, but with the Pizzacraft PC0601 Pizzeria Pronto Stovetop Pizza Oven you’ll get there in 15 minutes flat… as long as you’ve got a gas stovetop. If you do, once the temp is reached, your pie will be baked in as little as 6 minutes!

Most conventional ovens can only achieve temperatures of 500 F and require up to an hour to reach those heats. The Stovetop Pizza Oven can heat up to 600 F in about 15 minutes, allowing you to cook your pizza in as little as 6 minutes. The Stovetop Pizza Oven uses one of your stovetop’s gas burners to reach cooking temperature. Simply place the oven on top of your burner and turn it on. The oven’s heat-efficient design traps and reflects heat to create the optimal pizza-cooking environment. Dual cordierite baking stones absorb the direct heat from the flame and redistribute it evenly, eliminating hot spots. The stones are separated by a layer of air to diffuse heat, and the bottom stone has a cutout for improved airflow. The built-in thermometer lets you know when it’s time to cook, and the moisture vent in the top prevents your pizza from becoming soggy. With the Pizzeria Pronto Stovetop Pizza Oven, you can get pizzeria-perfect pizza in your own home.

The device will yield 12 inch pizzas reliably, and costs a very reasonable $161.
