A Heart-Shaped Waffle Maker For Your Sweetheart

wafflemakerheart

Guys, you do know Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, right? You could go big with the presents and the outings and the whole nine yards. Or… you could just make breakfast in bed with a twist! These heart-shaped waffles will not only fill her belly with joy, but her heart with happiness at knowing you remembered. Because, let’s face it, it’s the intention that counts and if you’re with a significant other who is disappointed that you made her (or him, or him) breakfast in bed with heart-shaped waffles, you might want to consider a divorce.

The machine is $70.

Here’s A Pretty Spice Rack

spice-rack-1

No one is going to get excited over a spice rack, let’s be honest. But if you’re in the middle of decorating a new home, you’ve probably realized that God is indeed in the details. While you might have spent a ridiculous sum on that chandelier, or that fancy stainless steel talking fridge, you’ll be sad if you can’t store your spices in a way that does them justice. For this reason, we kind of like the Cylindra Spice Rack:

A modular spice rack that can be freely placed on any counter or mounted on the wall, its petridish-like cover allows you to load spices cleanly or pinch as you like. A movable band in the middle slides smoothly to sprinkle a bit–or a lot–of flavour, as you place your cylinder on its perimeter.

And that’s enough said about this item. It’s $15.

Su Chef App Generates Recipes Based On What You Have

Su Chef App

Anyone can follow the instructions in a cookbook and cook something. It takes a certain level of skill, a bit of talent, and a whole lot of experience to prepare full meals from scratch. In case you’ve got a refrigerator and cupboard full of random stuff and don’t really have time to run to the supermarket before supper, then the Su Chef app can help you out.

Instead of presenting recipes with the ingredients each dish requires, you’re supposed to key in the ingredients that you have. It’ll go through its database of over a hundred thousand recipes to find what dishes you can make with what you currently have. Aside from having tons of recipes built in, it also comes with a shopping list feature and lets you build menus based on a special diet, like Paleo, vegetarian, and high fiber, among others.

Su Chef can be downloaded from iTunes for $1.99.

Flexible Lunch Box Will Keep Your Sandwich In One Piece

Foodskin-Flexible-Lunchbox

Ever prepare the perfect sandwich, only to find it bruised and battered once you take it out of the overly roomy lunch box you bring to work?

Foodstuffs of all shapes will be held snugly in place until you decide it’s time to stuff your pie hole.

‘Halved’ Dinnerware Set Forces You to Cut Your Meals in Half

Halved Dinnerware Set

It’s easy to start going on a diet–after all, all you need to do is to decide that you’ll go on one–but it’s hard to follow through. If you find yourself questioning your motivations halfway through it, then you might need some extra help. What better way to control your portions by using dinnerware that’s literally been halved?

That’s the idea behind the ‘Halved’ dinnerware set by Jo Djauhari, Fajar Kurnia and Jeremy Chia. The set is made up of a halved bowl, a halved plate, and a halved mug that can hold only half the normal capacity of most similar types of dinnerware. You can try to heap more food onto the bowl and plate all you want, but it definitely won’t hold the normal amount you’re probably used to eating.Continue Reading

Blood? Tomato sauce? We’re not sure what exactly it’s supposed to look like, but there’s no denying the Splash Red Chopping Board will add some character to your kitchen. If you do decide it looks like blood, maybe you could buy the “Man getting stabbed” knife holder to go along with it. You’ll end up with a Dexter-esque cooking area, and it won’t cost you much at all, seeing as the chopping board is £17 or roughly $27. Pre-order now for a September delivery.

‘Bites and Pieces’ Turns Sandwiches Into a Game of Edible Tetris

Tetris Bites

It’s difficult to get kids to eat their food sometimes. Parents have to constantly innovate and find ways to make mealtimes interesting. Bento boxes and rice balls are some good examples. But what can they do when it comes to boring-looking sandwiches?

Turn them into a game, that’s what! The whole process is made quick, easy, and painless thanks to the Bites & Pieces Sandwich Crust Cutter. Just prepare the sandwich, press the mold over it, and you have a bunch of Tetris pieces ready to go for both playing and eating. The box-shaped pieces are notably missing, but those are pretty easy to cut out from scratch anyways.

Rice Press Makes Little Rice Cubes

rice-cubes

Presentation in food preparation is arguably as important as taste. And while no fancy pants shape will make crappy food taste good, assuming it’s decent to start with, having little rice cubes on your plate will definitely get your guests talking. The Rice Cube plastic food mold pictured above will take your rice and turn it into a 2.5in cube, which you can then wrap in nori to make sushi, or simply leave as is as a side.

It’s $20.
