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.

You want to cook something to eat — something special that only you can make — but you don’t want to open the kitchen cabinet. You know what will happen: dozens of pots, pans, lids and trays will fall clattering to the ground. And then they’ll be all dirty instead of full of delicious muffins, pizzas and brownies.
The YouCopia StoreMore Adjustable Bakeware Rack cleans up the mess before it becomes a mess. The adjustable cookware rack organizes all the different everyday baking pieces thanks to adjustable dividers. From deep dishes to thin sheet pans, the rack can be made to accommodate. So when it comes time to bake your specialty, say like brownie pizza (Mmmm… brownie pizza), that precise pan is always within reach.

Vegetable spiralizer. Veggie spiralizer. Veggie spirals. Vegetable spiral. Just a few years ago, these words would not be found together. Now, of course, spiral cutters are popular and that means all these words can be found all jumbled together — kinda like a pile of veggie noodles on your plate.
The Gusteaux Quadghetti 4-blade Spiralizer is a new, affordable spiral slicer that comes with four different blades (3mm, 5mm, 10mm and 70 mm). Capable of making spiral cuts on a variety of different vegetables, the kitchen gadget makes it easy to put a new twist on otherwise ordinary meals. And if a new spin on food isn’t enough of a mouthful, saying ‘Gusteaux Quadghetti Spiralizer’ 3 times fast (well, better make that 4) certainly is.
