This apple slicer makes house calls

Dial-A-Slice Apple Slicer

Considering that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, it’s a good thing this apple slicer picks up the phone. The Dial-A-Slice Apple Slicer cores and slices in one simple motion. A twist of the base dials in how many blades are used, creating either eight or sixteen perfectly proportioned wedges. While the state of health care in this country may be open for debate, at least this kitchen gadget has you covered.

Party like a Jerk with this wine dispenser

Vacu Vin Wine Tender

Boxed wine may not be the taboo it once was, but that doesn’t mean you want to look at the packaging while drinking it. Pretty much the first thing anybody who has ever bought a box of wine has done is look inside the box. (Well, maybe the second: pouring a glass is usually the first.) Lurking inside is a silver colored bag that looks like something an astronaut would drink out of. At this point the wine in a bag can be left in the box, removed for the sake of novelty, or placed in the Vacu Vin Wine Tender
.

While Navin R. Johnson may still have a leg up on you when it comes to enjoying wine, at least you too can now entertain in style. The wine dispenser comes complete with the ability to keep your wine chilled and your guests entertained for hours. If you’ve got a big backyard with Grecian statues, s-shaped hedges and three swimming pools you’re in luck, because this wine cooler would fit right in.

Eclipse Wine Rack begs to be stared at

Nambé Eclipse Wine Rack, designed by Neil Cohen.

Designed by Neil Cohen, the Nambé Eclipse Wine Rack is only for the brave. While I doubt staring at its curvy structure for too long will cause any permanent eyesight damage, your heart however, may be another matter.

I’m just not sure how comfortable I am with storing wine that is supported solely by the neck of the bottle. Good thing I don’t have any high-priced varietals hanging around to test just how sturdy it is. Or $200 in my 3-bottle wine rack budget for that matter. However, it certainly looks cool; just don’t stare at it for too long.
