Hot Dog Slic’r

Evriholder HDH Hot Dog Slicer

There has only ever been one time when it has been acceptable to put ketchup on a hot dog and that has been when the age of the eater is still in single digits. Apparently however, this basic truism may have another component: when the hot dog has been sliced into kid-friendly bite-sized pieces with the Evriholder Hot Dog Slic’r. Oh, and if you happen to be a dachshund. Just look at that happy face!

Anything But Snowman Tongs

Amico Pink Plastic Cut out Holes Head Food Tong Bread Clamp Serving Tool a.k.a. Snowman Tongs

Ah, cultural differences. A design that is instantly recognizable to most Americans could be a complete mystery to those from other countries. Take for example, the Amico Pink Plastic Cut out Holes Head Food Tong Bread Clamp Serving Tool. The seller is based in Hong Kong and I guess they just do not have snowmen there. But perhaps the bigger concern here than the lack of snowmen in Hong Kong, is why the heck do snowman tongs exist? Snowmen don’t like heat! Everybody knows that. Oh, wait… 😉

RSVP Hazel Nut Grinder

RSVP Hazel Nut Grinder

Twist to grind. That’s the idea behind the RSVP Hazel Nut Grinder. The cute grinder gadget is shaped like a little squirrel with the tail operating as the handle. It is made out of cast aluminum, so this little gizmo should make it through many winters to come.

Product Description:
Hazel loves to grind nuts for all your cooking and baking needs. Simple lift of the acorn lid and fill the acorn hopper with shelled nuts such as pecans, walnuts, almonds and peanuts. Grab hold of her fat tail and rotate clockwise to coarsely chop the exact amount of nuts you need. The ground nuts will fall into the glass jar below which has an 8 oz. capacity and features measurements in cups and millimeters. Hazel’s body is made of cast aluminum with a strong steel grinding mechanism inside. Hazel can be washed in mild soap and water and cleaned with a soft brush or sponge, but alas Hazel is leery of dishwashers and she just can’t go there! The glass jar though is dishwasher safe.

Air Cork The Wine Preserver

Until that time when it is deemed reasonable to produce wine in single-serving sizes (never), there needs to be a way to preserve leftover wine. Even if it’s out of thin air. Air Cork, that is.

Air Cork The Wine Preserver takes a stunningly simple idea and runs with it. Using a balloon to create a barrier from the air inside of half-empty (or half-full) bottles of wine, the intuitive wine gadget makes it easy to see why it would work. Just stick the balloon in the bottle, pump it full of air, and then release when it becomes time to enjoy the wine again. Here’s saying cheers to a fun idea that doesn’t look to be just full of hot air.
