Veterinary Scale Comments Leave Llama Not Amused

Salter Brecknell PS1000 Veterinary 1000lb Scale -- How much does a llama weigh?

Okay, so perhaps this scale for veterinarian use is a bit of stretch for a kitchen gadget blog, but the product picture is too hard to resist. (Plus, TGIF.) So if you came here looking for a kitchen scale, here is a nice, old one to look at. But if you need a vet scale, it’s hard to argue with a llama.

The Salter Brecknell PS1000 Veterinary 1000lb Scale is designed for use with (live) animals weighing up to one thousand pounds. And according to the comments on Amazon… well, just read for yourself:

From the picture in the product description, I thought that this would be able to fit on my counter, (and for the record what animal is that? Some type of weird mouse?)

Then of course, there are those with needs for a large, high capacity scale:

At first, I could weigh my sacrificial animals on a plain old bathroom scale, but that grew impractical when I needed to graduate from chickens to livestock.

Be careful what you weigh, though. The scale isn’t designed for everything:

Yes it will stand up to the test of weighing llama after llama, but as soon as you introduce alpacas to the scale, the cpu heats up considerably and discolors the white display area to an unsightly pinkish-brown.

There are more great comments to be read, including of course, the requisite your mama is so fat jokes. Good stuff.

Savora Oil Misters In Your Color

Savora Misto Oil Sprayer

Pump oil sprayers have become a standard accessory in the kitchen. Makes sense: they use no propellents and spray a fine mist of oil on whatever you point them at. However, while elegant, the contraptions have mostly lacked color. Or at least, the color of your choosing.

The Savora Misto Oil Sprayer is available in a variety of colors: Crimson Red, Indigo, Raven Purple, Persimmon, Passion Pink, Noir Black. So now, instead of repainting the kitchen to match, all you need is to choose your color. Whoever said it was difficult to accessorize? Now about that toaster…

Chicken Feet Egg Cup

Chicken Feet Egg Cup by BIA Cordon Bleu

Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side, of course. Or, if the Chicken Feet Egg Cup with Yellow Feet is involved, the answer is because the chicken couldn’t see where it was going! (Or for that matter, that its feet were duck feet.)

OREO Separator Machine

Finally! It is unknown what percentage of the population prefers Oreo cookies to Oreo cream, but it is a good bet that all those Double-Stuffers out there outnumber the cookie fans. That is why it took so long to build the OREO Separator Machine.

Well, no longer:

It’s a basic human desire to separate an OREO cookie. Humans love either cookie or creme. And sometimes a man just needs to invent a machine to do the hard work of separating the two. Today, that man is physicist and cookie-part preferrer David Neevel. Watch him operate the machine he created that separates OREO cookies.

No longer must those who like the cookie part better walk past the Oreo Double Stuf package in the supermarket and shield their eyes in disgust. Finally, cookie fans have their day!
