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.

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.

This Machete is A Spatula


Or is this spatula a machete? Whichever way you choose to look at it, the Machete Spatula is one badass looking piece of BBQing instrumentation. And if flipping your burgers with what looks like a terrifying weapon isn’t manly enough, there are not one but three bottle-opening hooks on the side of the blade. We’re getting some giggles imagining the scene that would have you popping some caps off beer bottles, while flailing this large chunk of metal around, only to settle down and flip a burger or two. That’s what BBQ fun is all about, and you can get the Machete Spatula for £11.99, or around $19USD.

Steamship Silicone Pot Lid


Adding to the ever growing trend of quirky kitchen utensils, the Fred and Friends STEAM SHIP Silicone Steaming Lid is a great way to add a bit of whimsy to your mealmaking. It’ll cover a pot of boiling water up to 10″ in diameter, and features three… chimneys on its decorative steamship, to let excess steam out and prevent your lid from tap dancing on the pot. It’s not the most high-tech of kitchen toys, but it sure is cute and at $13.50, it also won’t break the bank.

Nessie Ladle Looks Perfect In A Lake Of Soup


What better way to get your kid interested in eating your lobster bisque than by presenting it to him with the Loch Ness monster swimming in the pot? This ladle comes with tiny feet that let the whole thing stand up at the bottom, with Nessie’s head whimsically sticking out. It’s a cool way to spend $16.

Magnifying Spoon Lets You Pick Out Tiny Hairs From Your Soup


You must be a special person, if you worry enough about possible contaminants in your food that you’d consider buying the Magnifying Spoon. But if someone out there bothered to make it, there’s a chance people out there will buy it. It’s simply a magnifying glass shaped into a spoon-like apparatus. You can hover it above your grub, pick out any tiny things you spot that you think shouldn’t be there, and then take a sip. We don’t know how much it costs, but apparently you can contact the shop and have one made.

TravelMate: All the Cutlery You Need In a Neat Package



Eating takeout using the flimsy plastic spoon and fork that most restaurants hand out sucks, especially if they break or show signs of bending the moment you scoop or try to slice up some grub. Cutlery sets are on-the-go dining are readily available, and one particularly eye-catching and practice option is the TravelMate.

It comes with a detachable fork and a 4.87-inch blade knife with a Paperstone handle. The fork is a multi-tool in itself as well, since it’s also a bottle opener, can opener, flathead screwdriver, and grill scraper. Cut meat, slice veggies, spread butter, turn stuff over on the grill–it seems like there’s little the TravelMate can’t do.

It’s priced at ~$50.

Case Hobo is the Swiss Army Knife for On-the-Go Diners

Case Hobo Knife

You can eat most take-out food with nothing but your hands and maybe some tissue, but there are some that can only be enjoyed with utensils (spaghetti, for one). Nothing is more infuriating than getting ready to chow down, only to realize that they forgot to include plastic utensils with your food.

Cue the Case Hobo, which is like a Swiss Army knife for people who eat on the go a lot, since it folds out to reveal a spoon, a fork, and a knife. With an amber bone handle and the utensils made from surgical steel, this is as fancy as portable utensils can get. Obviously you won’t be able to use all three at once, but it sure beats having to use your hands.

The Case Hobo is priced at $70.

Sugar Skull Spoon Adds A Macabre Flair To Your Morning Coffee


There’s really not much to say here. It’s a sugar spoon, like the ones you use to scoop sugar into your coffee. Only this one has the shape of a skull stamped out of it. Neat-o. It does this cool sugar skull thing when you scoop some out. We’re not sure what setting or occasion would call for something like this (it’s too late for Halloween this year), but we can imagine there are people who’ll get a kick out of it regardless. It’s £8 ($13) for yours, on the more-than-fully-funded Kickstarter.
