Slow cookers are slow, right? That’s okay; they are supposed to be. While they are sitting their doing their thing, flavors are developing into a deep, rich structure that is often well worth the wait. But that waiting can take from morning til night.
In anticipation of all day cooking, what better way than to think ahead and prepare with a nocturnal buddy? The Owl Pattern Crock-Pot Slow Cooker is a basic slow cooker with a fun, whimsical owl-themed design. Will it make for better food as an end result? Who knows?

There is a large metal box in your kitchen that (hopefully) doesn’t get hot or wet. As it so happens, this large food storage container also allows for storage on the outside. Yup, it’s the fridge we’re talking about here and magnetic spice jars to decorate its surface.
The Good Cooking Magnetic Spice Jars are an affordable spice storage solution. The little dispensers are mostly made of metal, so they do stick to each other as well as to the side of the fridge. Each one has a see-through lid and openings for pouring or shaking. When it comes time to use, just pluck one off of the refrigerator door and shake — assuming that one hasn’t been playing Tetris on the fridge and the one you want to use is buried at the bottom of a shape avalanche.

There’s an old joke:

It’s nice to have a beverage dispenser hanging about. Just go to it and fill up your cup (assuming of course that the beverage dispenser is actually filled with a drink). But the flip side of having handy-dandy drinks on hand is that the thing needs a place to live when not in use and drink dispensers don’t fold up too easily. Collapse on the other hand…
The Useful UH-CB149 110 OZ 3.3L Collapsible Beverage Dispenser is a drink dispenser that expands from 4 to 9 inches tall. The pop-up dispenser is an affordable way to keep the family hydrated at picnics or even just backyard BBQs. When the party is over and it’s time to go back inside, the drink dispenser collapses for easy storage — but it’s probably best to finish the beverages first.

Salad is great. Wet salad, not so much. Yet, we still gotta wash the lettuce, right? So, once upon a time somebody invented the salad spinner for drying leafy greens to make for a wonderful dry salad. (Before the gallon of ranch dressing gets added, that is.) However awesome salad spinners may be, there is room for improvement.
A salad spinner isn’t the most beautiful object in the kitchen. It’s a bulky item that usually just gets a utilitarian design. But not any longer. The Apple Shaped Salad Spinner brings a fun design to the oft-overlooked kitchen contraption. This particular one is on the small side, measuring 8 inches by 8 inches by 7 inches, so if it looks too good to use, you can always find a nice spot for it on the knick-knack shelf.

Things move fast in the kitchen. It’s easy to reach out and grab the wrong thing when cooking up a storm. Of course, this includes hot cookware, but there is another threat lurking when the cooking is fast and furious: The Mess.
Having a hand towel nearby while cooking is essential. Having one that also does duty as pot holder is twice as nice. The Campanelli Cooking Buddy (available in three different colors) is an over-the-shoulder cooking accessory that looks to keep the cooking action smooth.
