Fred And Friends Cracked Up Colander

Fred and Friends Cracked Up Colander

Colanders are pretty boring as far as kitchen gadgets go, right? No! First of all, a colander makes for a perfect first space helmet. Or marching band hat. Or really any kind of hat as long as it has to do with banging pots and pans. But the problem with letting the kids get into the kitchen gear isn’t their land of make-believe, but rather the real world when kitchen gear gets broken. (Or until the tears start; whichever comes first.)

Unless of course, you have the Fred and Friends Cracked Up Colander. Available as part of a set (with the Fred and Friends Cracked Up Mug for some reason), the fun kitchen tool features irregular cut-outs that give it the appearance of a broken bowl. However, no bowls were harmed in the process — unlike the kids’ feelings when the kitchen gear gets taken away from them to make dinner.

At Least This Notre Dame Football Mug Is Undefeated

NCAA Notre Dame Undefeated Season Tankard BCS Championship Mug

The BCS Championship game was last night. It was a boring football game. The Alabama Crimson Tide rolled over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to a final score of 42-14. In college sports, they seem to count “postseason” stats as valid, so while the football minds of Notre Dame ponder their first loss of the season, perhaps they can drown their sorrows in this NCAA Notre Dame Undefeated Season Tankard BCS Championship Mug.

Roll Tide, as they say.

Presto Peel-a-Meal Electric Potato Peeler

Presto 02905 Peel a Meal Electric Peeler

“Never again.” It’s a pretty good bet those words have been spoken aloud quite often during the past few days. But before we all experienced National Hangover Day on New Year’s Day, we had those pesky resolutions to consider. While there were certainly many utterances banishing fatty and greasy foods to the depths of oblivion, there were likely New Year’s Resolutions that dealt with the holiday season specifically. As in, “Never again will I make a million pounds of mashed potatoes!”

If these words sound familiar, check out the Presto 02905 Peel a Meal Electric Peeler. The electric peeler claims to peel apples, potatoes and more quickly and easily (and most importantly, automatically). If this sounds too good to be true, perhaps it is; reviews are mixed. But at less than $25, it might not hurt to try, and hey, one can always re-gift it if it doesn’t work for you. Better than a Big Mouth Billy Bass (70 bucks!?!).
