Cheese nubs (and other small items) can be treacherous to grate. They are hard to get a grip on, and when you do wrangle them in, they eventually get too worn down to grasp. The Microplane 3-Piece Grater Set makes it easy to work with such items. The set includes an Extra Coarse Grater and a Medium Ribbon Grater, while the slider attachment saves fingers from all those hard-to-control items. If not for your fingers, perhaps for those that belong to whom you love; it is officially gift season after all. And all this time you thought it was the day after Thanksgiving.

Pumpkins must not mind being impaled by sharp objects. Around this time of year they do seem to always have that stupid grin on their faces. I’d say that’s proof positive that using the Pumpkin Pal Stake to illuminate the
carcass jack-o’-lantern this Halloween is a-okay. Besides, using two AAA batteries won’t set the porch on fire when those damn teenagers knock the pumpkin over. Get off my lawn!

Go ahead and get tipsy: it’s okay. This Weeble Wobble of wine will hold you up. The Rocking Carafe, available at Drinkstuff uses a silicone base to keep it from falling down. They say the “generous base encourages maximum wine oxygenation”, but I just say the 2.5-liter capacity carafe is the perfect accompaniment for those late nights. Two and a half liters is three bottles of wine after all.

If only all parties involved some kind of helicopter-UFO appliance. Or at least melted cheese. With the Unold Flying Raclette you get both! Made for melting or browning cheese, which is then served with potatoes, meat and vegetables, the sci-fi looking kitchen gadget is a new take on a traditional raclette grill.

Every year I plan Halloween costumes, yet every year I end up being Dead Guy. Even though I swear up and down that I’m going to make some elaborate costume, somehow Dead Guy continues to rise. Well no longer! This year instead of the mad rush to Walgreens to pickup some $1.98 face paint, I’m going to plan ahead and make something clever, funny… ah who am I kidding? Now that I discovered the Skeleton Oven Mitt I might not even bother with the face paint!

While clamshell take-out containers may be all the rage, every once in a while you come across a place that sends you packing with an iconic little box. The New East Take Out Serving Container by Boston Warehouse won’t come filled with leftover Mongolian Beef or Kung Pao Chicken, but it will hold 34-ounces of whatever you decide. Suggestion: Shrimp Fried Rice from Tu Lan. Julia Child liked it, so should you.
