These Are Darth Vader’s Oven Mitts


Well… no, they’re not. Because let’s face it, Darth Vader wouldn’t be cooking now, would he? But if you want to stick your hands in a hot oven, we bet you won’t be able to use The Force so you’re going to need these silicon oven mitts made to look like Vader’s gloves; there’s even the Imperial Logo on the palm. Unfortunately, it seems it’s for right handed individuals only, but we suppose that for grabbing things out of the oven, lefties can manage with their non-dominant hand. It’s $15.

OneLid Is A Lid For All Your Pots


Usually when you get a pot, you have to keep track of its lid forever because no other one will fit. And admit it: you’ve used a large plate instead of the lid more than once because you couldn’t find it, haven’t you? With OneLid, you’ll just have to keep track of one, for any pots up to 22cm (8.6 in.) in diameter. It fits any pot because the underside is convex and is made of silicone with a Nylon core. It’ll sit and partially seal any sized pot and will redirect boiling water back into the mix. Special grooves allow for just the right amount of steam to escape and prevent a boil-over, while they also do double-duty as a strainer. The silicone construction means you won’t be hearing any metal-on-metal clangs. The best part is you’ll only have to pledge $30 to secure your own, with shipping in February 2016.

ScoopTHAT! II Is A High-Tech Ice Cream Scoop


Scooping ice cream: it’s a serious first-world problem. Heck, it could even be a second world problem, since these guys do have ice cream, right? The issue is that most scoops get as cold as the frozen cream they’re trying to extract, making hard to carve a ball. The ScoopTHAT! II however features a biodegradable gel in the handle that transfers its heat to a special “thermo-ring” around the edges of the scooping bowl. This keeps the edge hot, cutting through ice cream like a hot knife through butter. The non-stick bowl prevents the frozen treat to stay glued, simply and easily dropping onto your awaiting cup or cone. There’s no need to heat the ScoopTHAT! II as the large gel heat basin in the handle will just absorb the cold as you scoop away. It’s a brilliant design, and better yet it’s super cheap at $25. Sure that may seem like a lot for an ice cream scoop, but consider the frustrations of the alternative and you might see the value.

This Contraption is “The iPhone of Garlic Peelers”?


Yeah… that’s a bold claim, but that’s what was in the email sent to us. Bold enough, in fact, to pique our interest and make us look at the thing. And while it’s a far cry from any Apple-type product, we suppose in the world of garlic peelers, this product does stand out. It’s a hollow tube with special grooves on the inside that peel a whole garlic bulb in 30 seconds. You simply break apart the head of garlic, toss the cloves in, close the lids and shake for 10 to 30 seconds. The grooves will impact the cloves in just the right way, removing the skin in the process. You’re left with a perfectly peeled pack of cloves in less time than it would take you to manually peel just one. The fact that both ends open up makes it easy to wash, and the design doesn’t hurt the eyes. The best part is that a $25 pledge will get you one.

Meet The Mamma Nessie Colander


You guys remember the Nessie Ladle? It was the super popular ladle that looked like the Loch Ness monster poking out of your soup pot; quirky design and decent price made the thing a hit. And like a Hollywood movie, there’s now a sequel: the Mamma Nessie Colander. It helps you drain your pasta like a good colander should, and while it doesn’t share the same “poking-its-head-out-of-water” magic that the ladle had, it will make a great addition to it if you already own the smaller utensil. They easily nest into one another, and the BPA-free toughened nylon it’s made of should last you years. Considering it’s only $18.90, we think it’s a steal.

Black Diamond Knife Block Looks Stylish In A Modern Kitchen


You have to put your fancy kitchen knife collection somewhere, but why settle for the traditional wooden block you see in almost any kitchen? When trying to design a beautiful home, every little detail matters, and the Black Diamond Knife Block from company Edge of Belgravia is as striking of a knife receptacle as we’ve ever seen. Designed by one Christian Bird, the block fits up to 11 knives, but will look complete with as little as two. Almost any type of knife will be supported, as long as the blade is thinner than 4mm. “Clever use of weighting secures the knives in their blocks, just as slight angling allows for easy extraction.” And for something that looks this expensive, we’re happy to report that it’ll only set you back £89.90 (about $140). Oh, sure, it’s a lot of money for a knife block, we agree. But these designer items usually tend to fetch a few orders of magnitude more than they should.

Updated: Nessie Ladle Now Available In Multiple Colors


You guys might remember the Nessie Ladle we wrote about in January. It was an awesome soup ladle that, when submerged in a pot of soup, would look like what we all imagine the Loch Ness Monster looks like. Well now you can purchase them in new colors, green and purple, in addition to the original turquoise. They’re made out of toughened Nylon, designed by OTOTO, and cost all of $16. Purchase link is below.

Furtif Knives Look Slick, Last Really Long


It’s nice when something that looks cool also has equally cool functions to match. The Furtif knives, from the Evercut line by “TB Groupe, one of France’s established knife makers and also the only eco-friendly cutlery maker in that country with ISO 9001 accreditation” not only look like they were brought back from the future, they have a “laser-bonded titanium-carbide surface [that] lasts 300 times longer than standard steel and 5 times longer than ceramic, according to third-party testing.” This means that with regular usage you shouldn’t have to sharpen them in 25 years! Of course you’d expect knives that look like this and last this long to cost an arm and a leg, but you’d be wrong. Most of them cost $138, while the paring knife is $78 and the utility knife is $92.

Of course looks and durability isn’s all that there is in a good kitchen knife, so we won’t speak of balance, comfort, and whatever else discerning chefs might look for. But for the average kitchen ninja, these will do.
