TPP306_1

Making breakfast for a loved one, especially a kid, has never been more fun than with this set of pop-up character molds. Simply press them onto your toast, fold up the part that’s been cut out, and push back two cut-out flaps for support. You’ll get toast that’s both fun and whimsical, and should delight those young and old alike. It’s cheap, at $13.50, and comes in frog, panda and bear shapes.

Spreadthat Butter Knife Uses Body Heat to Spread That Butter

Spreadthat Butter Knife

Butter isn’t the easiest thing to spread on a bagel if you just grabbed the tub from the fridge. The good news, butter lovers, is that it now gets easier with the Spreadthat Butter knife. It’s a futuristic-looking butter knife that’s coated in titanium. Aside from making the knife look cooler than the average, it also serves the purpose of conducting and transfering heat from your hand onto the blade. That way, the butter, jam, chocolate, or whatever it is you want to spread melts and in turn, becomes easier to spread.

The Spreadthat Butter Knife is available for $20.

Pirate-corkscrew

Can’t you have a bit of fun, before you have a bit of fun? Opening a bottle of wine is a trivial affair, but with a Legless Pirate Corkscrew, it can also be whimsical and well… Oh come on, just look at him! We’d make “arr” jokes, but it’s too cliché and we suck at jokes. So we’ll just tell you that it costs $12 and you want one.

Ya, you do.

This Pan Uses Rocket Tech To Be More Efficient

flare-pan

‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ goes the saying. But sometimes things are more broken than we realize, and this much is true of conventional saucepans. When you’re heating stuff in a conventional pot, the heat partially transfers to the liquids through the bottom, but the rest is lost up the sides. Oxford engineering Professor Dr. Thomas Povey and his team of master’s students thought there should be a more efficient way to transfer this heat, and the Flare Pans using FIN-X Technology are the result of their efforts. The fins make for a more even distribution of heat and actually reduce the amount of energy needed to achieve temperature parity by 44%. This is clearly seen with thermal imaging equipment.

So while you may not impress your guests with your cooking skills, at least you can “entertain” them with your tales of efficient thermodynamics. The Flare line of cookware will be sold starting next month through retailer Lakeland, with prices starting at £49.99 ($85 roughly) for a frying pan. Efficiency, apparently, isn’t cheap.

What Will They Think Of Next: Pillow Spoon Rest

Pillow Spoon Rest

So this is a pillow spoon rest. There’s not much to say, because the name says it all. It’s basically a miniature pillow made from silicone where you’re supposed to rest your mixing spoon on while you’re busy cooking up a storm in the kitchen. You could use a plate, but then, where’s the fun in that? You could also choose to go without it and rest your sauce-laden spoon against the pan or bowl, but things can get messy pretty quick if you don’t clean off the spoon as much as possible before doing so.

The Pillow Spoon Rest retails for $7.99 and will be available later this September.

The Only Thing Better Than Waffles Are Waffles On A Stick

waffle-french-toast-sticks-breakfast-treats-maker-xl

Let’s face it, no one likes to sit down to eat. Why be so formal? Food-on-sticks is the natural evolution of our eating habits, or at least it should be. That’s why we’re very bullish on the above Nostalgia Electrics FTW200 2-in-1 Breakfast Treats Maker. It comes with interchangeable plates so you can just as easily make French Toast or waffles. Included in the box are also 25 sticks, so you can get started on the snacks right away. Perhaps more interestingly, it’s only $32!

Want: Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block

x-wing-knife-block

We’re going to go ahead and speculate that the Star Wars franchise will print money until the end of time. Not only is there yet another movie instalment in the works, but the onslaught of merchandise is seemingly never ending. Just look at the above Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block. It’s awesome, and we want it, even though we feel guilty wanting to give even more money to people who already have too much. Oh well, the tug on our consumerist heart is strong with this one, and we’ll have to give up about $120 to get it. It comes with 5 knives: a Cook’s knife (335mm), a Bread knife (320mm), a Carving Knife (325mm), a Utility knife (235mm), and a Paring knife (195mm). This ships in August and is only available for pre-order now.

For Deadly Frozen Treats: Samurai Sword Ice Pop Molds

Samurai Sword Ice Pop Molds

 

You won’t be able to cut anyone with these samurai swords, but you can give them an icy shot to the face and groin for good measure. That is, before you sit back yourself and cram the rest in your mouth. That’s because these aren’t actual swords (as you can obviously see), but ice pops make from the Samurai sword molds.

Make one for yourself, a pair so you can share with a friend, or half a dozen to spread that icy Samurai love all around. The molds are available online for $12.

Anova Sous-Vide Circulator Is Smartphone-Controlled

anova-sous-vide

We are big fans of sous-vide cooking at OhGizmo!. We have a full review of the Nomiku immersion circulator right here. In case you don’t know, sous-vide is a technique that involves putting your food in a sealed plastic bag and dunking it in water of a precise temperature for a long period of time. The result is tender, perfectly cooked meats and other things. It’s being used by many high-end restaurants and now increasingly by the average consumer.

The problem is that most people don’t know which temperatures to cook things at, and that’s where the Anova Precision Cooker comes in. It’s an immersion circulator that attaches to the side of your water pot, heats the water to a specific temp, and keeps it there. But the temperatures and cooking times are determined through the application, and relayed to the device via Bluetooth.

The available SDK means several applications can be developed for it, expanding the device’s utility and convenience. And then there’s the cost. A $139 pledge will get you one now, while the full retail price is still a very reasonable $170. That’s much less than most professional grade circulators, and is reaching the point where every household should seriously consider getting one.
