Wine glasses have a tendency to not last too long. Such is the nature of the beast. Drinking wine gets you drunk, getting drunk means not holding on to things so well. Things that don’t get held on to very well tend to break when they hit the floor. It’s a vicious cycle that wine glasses must endure.
Wine glass makers have quite the repeat business, but their stranglehold on the wine-drinking community may be near an end. The WineMeUp Unbreakable Silicone Wine Glasses won’t shatter or crack after a few (too many).
Of course, the silicone stemless glasses are flexible, so there may be a new issue at hand for red wine drinkers who like to squeeze their glasses too tight — but don’t worry, laundry detergent makers will be happy for your repeat business.

Soon, little ‘boils’ and ‘ghouls’ will be dressing in costumes and hitting the neighborhood streets going door to door asking for candy. One day out of the year, this surprisingly works! Perhaps this was all a big scheme cooked up by candy-makers, or perhaps it is the threat of tricks that earn these little costumed kids their treats. In any event, one thing is for certain: those little goblins are gonna come back sticky and covered in chocolate.
Be at the ready with these Halloween Kitchen Towels. They probably won’t be scaring anybody with their fun designs, but that’s okay — certainly, the prospect of candy-covered fingers touching everything in the house is much scarier than a smiling Frankenstein or ghost!

There you are staring right into the deep, dark abyss — of a wonderful cup of tea. But all is not rosy: in your hand there is a dripping tea ball, running hot tea down your arm. No, this is not what tea should be.
There is a (colorful) solution.
The Friendly Swede Silicone Tea Infusers are little tea-brewing accessories that bring a drip tray along for the ride. Each fun, alien-looking tea infuser has its very own drip tray incorporated into the design. Comprised of stainless steel and silicone, the infusers feature easy-to-grab handles that make it easy to transfer the device right onto the drip tray when the loose-leaf brew is ready.
Four to a set, the pink, green, red and orange tea infusers offer a bright alternative to the dark mystery of just where the heck to set down dripping wet tea leaves.

The Jet Grill is a rotisserie grill from the Czech Republic. The design is inspired by a jet turbine. Up on top is a propeller that spins from the heat. Attached to the prop via a spit is your food. Rising heat spins the propeller and turn your food. Mmm, jet fuel never tasted so good.
It doesn’t look like it’s available quite yet in the US, so you might have to hop on a real plane to go pick one up. Or, if you Czech is up to snuff you can contact Jet Grill directly right here.

This is a close up. The part that gives it away has been cropped out. Chopped down like an Xmas tree…

Why spiral once when you can spiral four times? Spiral cutters seem to be big right now, and it’s easy to see why. They are simple contraptions that make it easy to add a dimension of flair to home cooked meals.
Often however, they are unitaskers: little gadgets that only do one thing. That’s not necessarily a bad thing though; think of a common grater — they don’t do much else than grate food, but are extremely handy little devices in the kitchen. Of course, having more grating options like fine, medium or course makes it all the more useful. So too with the spiral cutters.
The Paderno World Cuisine 4-Blade Spiralizer ups the ante for a spiral cutter and features four interchangeable blades:
– Straight/Accordion Blade: Create ribbon cuts for salads, shredded cabbage for coleslaw, vegetable pasta, apple chips, and when used with the included pin you can create the popular spiral cut potato skewers.
– Angel Hair Shredding Blade (NEW): This blade creates perfect angle hair strands out of fruit and vegetables. Angel hair strands are ideal for use in soups, salads, and as a replacement for traditional pasta with a delicate sauce.
– Fine Shredding Blade: This is our popular “spaghetti” blade and is used to create a medium-sized cut for pasta replacement, stir-fry, and salads. Theses strands will hold up to a heavier or more substantial sauce like Bolognese.
– Chipping Blade: This blade allows you to create thicker stands or cuts. These thicker cuts are perfect for roasting and sautéing, and create an amazing base for many sauces. Make curly fries in mere moments with just a few turns of the handle.
The little kitchen countertop prep tool works by attaching a fruit or vegetable to the blade plate on one end and prongs on the other. Then, just twist the handle and let your imagination spin.
