One of the best things about coffee is that it can be enjoyed hot or cold. Start the morning off with a nice hot cup, and by the afternoon keep the caffeinated train going with an iced version. If there is any lull between cups of coffee, and it gets hard to concentrate or pay attention, Mr. Coffee has your back.
The Mr. Coffee Cafe Frappe Maker is a simple to use coffee-making gadget that brews and blends in three minutes time. Just add ingredients and press a button. The 20-ounce capacity blending jar will soon contain enough magic elixir for you to make it through the day—or at least until the next cup of coffee.

Brown paper bags may never go out of style, but at some point it’s time to step up your game when it comes to drinking in public. If you’re tired of getting hassled by the Man when getting your drink on, perhaps it’s time to class up the joint a bit. Any park, beach or street corner can be transformed into your own little watering hole with the BarGoGo Transformer Portable Bar.
Yes, it costs a thousand dollars, and sure, you have to stock it yourself, but when you roll up with a foldable bar this weekend, you’re sure to be the life of the party; in fact, you’ll literally make the party. Any cop seeing this getup is bound to pass right on by—but keep a stash of brown paper bags behind the bar, just in case.

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.
