Chef’n FreshForce Orange Juicer

Chef'n FreshForce Orange Juicer

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.”

Make Happy Hour A Foamy Sonic Hour

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!

Clean The Kitchen With Bacon

ThinkGeek Sizzling Bacon Kitchen Towel Dish Towel

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 Branches Out Into Coffee Mugs

Google Logo Coffee Mug Promotional Novelty 11 Oz by Go Banners

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!

Nokia Constellation Microwave Cooks For April Fools’

Nokia 5AM-TH1N6 Constellation Microwave Oven

The best part about April Fools’ Day is when the jokes are for real (see: Gmail, ThinkGeek, etc). So while the Nokia 5AM-TH1N6 Constellation Microwave Oven might seem like an April Fools’ Day prank, is the concept of a “high-resolution PureFood camera that automatically shares pictures of ready meals with friends and family via social networks” really that far off that mark? Food bloggers whipping out their phones would disagree. Especially when considering how photogenic microwaveable meals can be.

We can all look forward to:

The new Nokia 5AM-TH1N6 has even more innovative features. The device comes with the latest eye-tracking technology, which stops the food from rotating when you look at it, and it automatically adjusts the temperature depending on how hungry you look.

Available in blue cheese cyan, lemon yellow and liquorice black sometime in the future depending on how gullible we are. Happy April Fools’ Day!
