Little known fact: wind-up robots are powered by cracking nuts. Proof of this is clearly seen above as these two Robot Nutcrackers wait for instructions. Who knew the eventual robot uprising would be so delicious?
These beechwood ‘bots are suitable for cracking small hazelnuts and almonds or large walnuts and are available in Small Red or Large Blue. Luckily for us humans, it doesn’t appear they have automatic operation quite yet, so they’ll need to keep us around for a while to keep feeding them.

Tea time! The Dalla Piazza Delicha Automatic Tea Maker + 12OZ. Halo Bistro Wide Body Coffee Cup + 4.5in. Cup & Saucer Demi Spoon not only comes with a bunch of tea stuff like spoons and saucers, but the darn thing can actually keep track of time too.
Featuring a “patented timing mechanism,” the automatic tea maker steeps tea (or coffee) and then lifts the steeping basket out of the brew when time is up. The timer can go up to seven minutes, which happens to be about how long it takes to read that product title. Good thing a nice cup of tea is worth the wait.

Usually when confronted with the before and after pics of a food party, one sees the nice and clean version beforehand. Not here.
Above, we see the Architec Five Minute Stackable Appetizer Maker in action, ready to serve up a dish of detectibles. And below, we see the after shot. After it has been through the dishwasher, that is.

Fancy yourself a collector of odd food-related paraphernalia? The uber popular television show, Breaking Bad (“The best thing on television ever except maybe for The Wire” –Everybody), has wrapped and they are selling off some of the props. Yes, you can bid on Walter White’s Briefs but why would you want to? Perhaps instead, consider a Pollos Hermanos Fry Batter Bucket. The screen-used prop is guaranteed from Sony and for a starting bid of only $150, it could be yours. Fry batter and bullet holes not included.

Football is now on three nights a week. These football shaped beer glasses come in a 4-pack. Coincidence? Highly doubtful. Be it Sunday, Monday or Thursday night, NFL football will be on the tube. This Libbey 23-Ounce Football Tumbler 4-Piece Beer Glass Set is the perfect accompaniment for the week.
And lest you think that BTKS is suffering from inability to count, there being four football glasses in this set and three nights of NFL football, please remember that the college kids play on Saturday. They might not be able to
count bucketfuls of money that they deserve for being the entertainers that they are INTERCEPTED BY THE NCAAF…
Four nights of football, four football shaped beer drinking glasses. Perfect like the ’72 Dolphins. However you add it up.

R2-D2 has it good. Despite the occasional foray into battle, the little droid does pretty well for himself. He gets carted around in spaceships, has a big gold buddy and is down with a princess. However, like all droids, every once in a while he needs a tune up. As in an oil change. Little did we all know, but R2-D2 runs on delicious soy sauce.
The Star Wars R2-D2 Soy Sauce Bottle Holder Dispenser is a handy dandy condiment dispenser that measures about four inches tall (so the Jawas won’t find him). Luckily with or without the scavengers, R2-D2 is ready for service. Dinner service that is. Who knew back in the 70s that R2-D2 leaking oil would be delicious for your rice? Aside from George Lucas, that is.
