Snail Funnel Does Your Kitchen Tasks — Slowly

DCI Snail Funnel

Every kitchen needs a funnel, but not every kitchen needs snails. However, that doesn’t mean the two can’t get along. In fact if you put them together you get the DCI Snail Funnel!

The collapsible snail funnel is a fun way to go about many kitchen tasks — albeit very slowly. Perfect for pouring honey or molasses into small jars or otherwise, the fun kitchen tools could probably even be used with faster pouring ingredients — just don’t add salt.

Wine Veils Keep Bugs Out Of Your Wine

Wine Veil 4 Stems, The Blend | 101-105, #5203

Where do they come from? Those little pesky bugs that appear out of thin air the moment a bottle of wine is opened. It’s like they have a little wine radar and come flying in from miles around as soon as a cork is popped.

The Wine Veils say no more!

The wine accessory simply drapes over a filled wine glass (or an empty one for that matter, if for some reason one was so inclined) and four small silver charms hold it in place. The cover acts as a bug guard, leaving the poor little critters sober and left out in the cold.

And the bugs? Well, they can just go back to being invisible — and hopefully stay that way!

Bug Bottle Cap Refrigerator Magnets

Insects Bottle Cap 6 pc Magnet Set w/ Case

Bugs in the kitchen are usually not a good thing (unless you are eating them, but that’s another story). However images of bugs crawling all over the refrigerator are not a bad thing. Especially when the creepy crawlies are captured and confined to a bottle cap.

The Insects Bottle Cap 6 pc Magnet Set w/ Case is perfect for the kitchen — as long as the bugs stay on the fridge. The whimsical refrigerator magnet set is made from recycled bottle caps and would make the perfect gift for any friends with insectophobia. Just be wary of anything they serve you after giving these to them.

Want a real way to keep ants away from your picnic? Eat them. No, not those tiny little walking black dots that get lost in the folds of the picnic blanket.

Real, edible ants, toasted just for you and put in a jar—just like any other snack.

The sweetest bugs you’ll ever eat

Backyard Bug Bundt Pan

Feeling buggy? Perhaps it is because you are using this Backyard Bug Bundt Pan. Or perhaps it is because you aren’t using it enough. I don’t know; I’m not too well versed on the eating of bugs. But, either way, you could be eating an exclusive bug diet with this thing. But the good kind of bugs, not those so-called Bizarre Foods, that Andrew Zimmern is always making faces at on TV. Since we’re talking cakes and other assorted sweets here, we’re talking about delicious bugs. Yum!

No more boring round pancakes

Garden Creatures Pancake Molds

Pancakes are more fun when they are not round. Something that lives inside each and every one of use inspires us to manipulate pancake batter as often as we can. Perhaps it is because the pancake is so round that we are urged to improve upon it. After all, it pretty much is a round blank canvas, and maple syrup only goes so far.

If you’re not the Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity type, then perhaps you can indulge your pancake-manipulating fantasies with the Garden Creatures Pancake Molds. A set of three, including a snail, a butterfly and a ladybug, the nonstick cookware makes transforming your breakfast into an easy affair. Just pour in the batter and after it sets remove the mold. The result is a metamorphasized breakfast meal and a deep inner satisfaction that no boring ol’ round pancake is safe around you.
