Portable grills are imprecise beasts: charcoal gets dumped in, and maybe or maybe not it will be enough fuel to feed a crowd. As the procession of burgers, steaks and chicken come off the grill and make their way into hungry hands, the charcoal burns down and grillers try to squeeze every last bit of heat out of the coals. Because nobody wants to get all grimy lifting up the greasy grill grate to add more charcoal.
Featuring an integrated mechanism that does the lifting for you, the Cuisinart GrateLifter Portable Charcoal Grill keeps the food party going. When engaged, the grill grate couples to the lid, allowing for both to rise in one easy motion. Just add more charcoal, and get those grilled goodies going again.

Kitchen counter space is always at a premium. Filled with appliances, countertops quickly go from being a center for useful gadgets to being messy mazes in which to work around. Even the simple everyday task of prep work can become hazardous in such circumstances. For those resigned to having cluttered countertops, having a little more space to work with is always appreciated.

Clean air is always a good thing and considering the amount of air filters, purifiers and the like that are out there on the market, most people would tend to agree. Problem is, while they’re doing their dirty work, they are just sitting there. Some of them don’t even make noise so if it weren’t for a little light you would never even know they were doing anything. (Besides the clean air, of course.)

Granite and wine rarely mix, but luckily there’s another way to open that bottle other than hitting it against a slab of hard rock. The Rogar International Champion Wine Opener in Antique Pewter with White Wave Granite is an impressive stationary opener that can uncork (and re-cork) bottles in under a second. That’s a timeframe even the most impatient among us will find comforting, while those who practice patience will appreciate an opener this steady as a rock. Best of all, there’s no fishing about for an elusive opener—this behemoth has no chance of getting lost in the utensil drawer.

With the street food craze still going on in full swing, it’s time to get back to basics. While we may never know what the original street food really is (noodles in China being a good bet), the iconic street food item of the modern era in the U.S. (or at least NYC) is the hot dog. While the close companion of the hot dog, the hamburger, might best be prepared on a backyard grill, the hot dog just isn’t a hot dog unless it comes from the street. Or at least a cart.

Wooden ships may float, but wooden spaceships? Maybe. But if you’re using this Flying Saucer Serving Bowl, you’re probably going to hope that it is too weighed down with delicious foods to get up and fly away. Depending on what you’re serving, that is. I’ll pass on the bowl of little green men, thank you very much.
