There is just something inherently honest about popcorn. An unpopped kernel sits, singular and waiting, naked in its simplicity. And when the time comes and heat is applied, everything on the inside turns out and it finds itself exposed to the word, ready for whatever comes next. Which of course, would be the butter and the salt!
Embracing this ideal is the You Pop It Popcorn Popper By Just Pop It! The simple stovetop contrivance is a popcorn popper that sticks to the basics. Just add kernels and oil and turn on the stove.
Stovetop popcorn is the best. By far. Except usually, one has to shake and stir to keep kernels from sticking. The You Pop It stovetop popper promises no shaking or stirring thanks to its unique design.
Instead of microwave bags full of hidden ingredients, instead of hot air poppers that result in flavorless popcorn, instead of relentless shaking and stirring, there is the You Pop It Popcorn Popper. And that’s not just a bunch of hot air.
For further proof of stark, honest reality and popcorn, watch the video below posted by Just Pop It, showing the whole process from start to finish.

Rooting around the kitchen junk drawer looking for the wrong tool for the right job is a habit that isn’t too difficult to break; hearing “don’t force it” can eventually sink the message home. Especially when “forcing it” results in a few too many messy situations.
Staring at the lemon and lime squeezer one too many times can lead one’s thoughts to what else it can be used for. Well, the Chef’n FreshForce Orange Juicer is here to say, “don’t force it.” The clever contraption picks up where the smaller citrus squeezer leaves off. With a larger hopper, the kitchen gadget is designed to handle juicing sliced oranges. Oh, and according to the product description it is “great for lemons, limes and small grapefruits too.”

Nobody like a flat beer, right? Well, shake things up with the Takara Tomy Sonic Hour. Pour a little water into the base to get it going, set your non-foamed beer on top and watch the action bubble forth. And to distract those that think an exaggerated head on a pint of beer is not a desirable thing, the beer gadget also features some groovy flashing lights to help set the mood.
For further proof that the future of beer drinking is full of cold air, the beer foam maker is part of the Beer Hour Series which also includes the Jokki Hour Sparkling Beer Mug and the Handy Beer Server, both of which serve similar purposes. Cheers!

Looks good, doesn’t it?
Say hello to the internet’s favorite food in dish towel form: The ThinkGeek Sizzling Bacon Kitchen Towel Dish Towel. When draped over your shoulder while frying up some bacon, you could not look more dashing. Of course, that requires keeping in mind which one is which. While having a real piece of bacon draped over your shoulder is certainly fashionable, trying to clean the kitchen with bacon probably won’t work. Then again, bacon is pretty magical.

Google’s reach is everywhere. Soon we will all be carrying around Nexus tablets and smartphones, wearing Google Glass… and drinking from Google mugs.
The Google Logo Coffee Mug Promotional Novelty 11 Oz by Go Banners is a basic coffee mug with the Big G’s stamp of approval (or at least their stamp). No word yet if a matching coffeemaker that doesn’t do evil, remembers your coffee history and tells you where you are going will become available.
***Update 7/11/2013*** No surprise. The “Google Mug” was pulled from Amazon!
