Pack up the cool with the Circulon Induction Burner

Infinite Circulon Portable Induction BurnerIt looks cool, and it is cool. This 15-inch Infinite Circulon Portable Induction Burner stays cool to the touch when cooking. Instead of a traditional gas flame or electric burner, the portable cooker works via induction, which transfers heat directly into the cooking vessel. Why waste all that energy heating up the air around your cooking pot? Other cooking methods may only use 55% of the generated energy, but induction cookers are capable of 90% efficiency.

With nine preset power levels, and seven preset cooking temperatures, the cooker is not only efficient, but also precise. Capable of a temperature range of 150 to 430 degrees, the cooker also includes a timer that can be set for up to ten hours. From slow cooking to entertaining to just having an extra cooktop available, induction cooking with a portable cooker makes it easy to cook precisely what you want.

Since the cooker does not become hot, there will be no baked on foods; simply wipe to clean. As a nice feature, the control panel slides in and out for easy use and storage. All good things, because with ease of use and portability, you’ll be taking this cooker everywhere.

Triple Timer times in any era

Triple TimerHoused in a cast-aluminum frame, this Triple Timer features classic styling and elegant grace. Looking like a set of controls that might have come from some sort of steampunk airship, the countdown starts from either 20, 60 or 120 minutes. With easy to read numbers and retro-molded knobs, the three separate timers are complete and ready to go. No need to attach any gears, levers or steam pipes.

Perhaps in a nod to its old-timey styling the timer also includes a “voluminous audible signal”, which is something I’m betting no wimpy battery-operated digital timer can match.

UPDATE: Sold out at the link above, but apparently available at Williams-Sonoma.

Felt-lined bottoms complete each coaster keeping your tabletop dry and free from any (well, some) inadvertent metal-induced scarring that may happen while drinking.

Hold Ups Wine Rack helps to keep wine in line

Hold Ups Refrigerator Wine Rack

Constantly struggling to find room in your fridge for wine bottles? If your fridge is anything like mine, most of the shelves are not tall enough, and the ones in the door are usually filled up. Wine bottles end up on their side, inevitably rolling around inconsiderately knocking every thing else out of the way. I prefer to give my wine its own space for a more harmonious inner fridge.

Wine bottles need space and Hold Ups Refrigerator Wine Rack can provide it. Slide the gizmo through the wire shelves in your fridge and twist to install. Suddenly, the contents of your refrigerator are transformed from an unruly mob into upright model denizens (or horizontal, in this case).

Grow your own $100 cucumber

Cucumber on a pizza?

You know how square watermelons (for some reason) sell for close to one hundred dollars in Japan? Well, now you can get in on the ground floor for the next big craze: fanciful cucumber design. Tap into your entrepreneurial spirit with Heart Shaped Cucumber Molds.

Working the same way as the aforementioned ovally-challenged watermelons, simply place your young cucumber into the device and let Mother Nature run its course. (Constricted by this contraption, that is.) When it’s time to harvest, remove the sleeve, and it’s off to market you go!
