Handy Gourmet Forever Fizz 2 Liter Soda Dispenser

Handy Gourmet JB6066 Forever Fizz

Dear Soda People,

Drink carefully.

Reviewers seem to hate this thing. The thing? The Handy Gourmet JB6066 Forever Fizz.

They say:

At first glance I thought it might be fun. I am into interesting gadgets. But this is not a useful gadget. It’s not even an interesting toy. It is a complete waste of money. If you should wind up with one of these, hopefully through no fault of your own, be sure you do all your experimenting in the kitchen sink. No you don’t have to do it in the shower. There is no real pressure. There is no gushing out of your soda. There is no fun.
— john the artist


So then, where do all the unsold units go?

Why to the dark corners of Amazon, where all those bad reviews magically disappear.
Listed for $2.83 $2.50 as the Coke Fizzy Soda Drinking Dispense Gadget Cool Dispenser, the failed product will live on and on and on and…

Sincerely, Beyond The Kitchen Sink

PS: Yikes! Fifteen one star reviews (and two very suspect 5 star reviews) over on QVC where they are branded as the K25916 – Prepology Set of 2 Fizz Saver 2-Liter Soda Dispensers.

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.

Wine Cork Candles

Wine Cork Candles

Mood lighting sets tone and ambiance — important ingredients for fine dining. If you are going to do something, do it right. Like making the Wine Bottle Chandelier from the other day. But that is just the start.

When it is time to turn the lights down low, all those leftover empty bottles can still be put to use. The Wine Cork Candles offers the perfect complement to the case of bottles that got used for the chandelier construction. Just don’t make the mistake of using the bottles of the chandelier to hold the candles–melted wax hardly makes for a delicious dessert.
