Fine particulate matter like ground salt or pepper is usually not a good thing to keep around camera equipment. The individual granules work their way into every nook and cranny and clog and scratch what was never meant to be clogged and scratched. However, camera lenses are not the only thing designed to be twisted and turned; salt and pepper grinders and mills also share that same atribute.
The Camera Lens Pepper Mill Grinder from Nuop is okay with small particles. In fact, it wants to help. Fill with peppercorns, twist and season. Taking care of camera equipment never tasted so good.

Looks good, doesn’t it?
Say hello to the internet’s favorite food in dish towel form: The ThinkGeek Sizzling Bacon Kitchen Towel Dish Towel. When draped over your shoulder while frying up some bacon, you could not look more dashing. Of course, that requires keeping in mind which one is which. While having a real piece of bacon draped over your shoulder is certainly fashionable, trying to clean the kitchen with bacon probably won’t work. Then again, bacon is pretty magical.

Google’s reach is everywhere. Soon we will all be carrying around Nexus tablets and smartphones, wearing Google Glass… and drinking from Google mugs.
The Google Logo Coffee Mug Promotional Novelty 11 Oz by Go Banners is a basic coffee mug with the Big G’s stamp of approval (or at least their stamp). No word yet if a matching coffeemaker that doesn’t do evil, remembers your coffee history and tells you where you are going will become available.
***Update 7/11/2013*** No surprise. The “Google Mug” was pulled from Amazon!

They say we eat with our eyes first. But what happens when an otherwise delicious meal gets set down in front of us, only to realize that it’s been jammed into the wrong serving contrivance? If it’s a bowl of ramen, shoving that rectangle into a round bowl can only have crumbly, unappetizing results. It’s a wonder that anybody eats the stuff.
How has rectangle-ramen survived in a round-bowl-world for so long? Well, it’s no matter because the Rapid Ramen Cooker is here to save the day.
There is no great secret here to the Rapid Ramen bowl; it just happens to be a bowl designed to perfectly fit a packet of the dried noodles. No longer must we wade through a crumbled jumble of dried noodles. Just pop the noodle cake into the bowl, fill to the water line and nuke it for about 4 minutes. Thanks to the shape of the bowl, the result should be evenly cooked noodles without any hazardous sharp edges protruding out. See? It’s safe too!
Finally, eating ramen no longer must be like forcing a square peg into a round hole. Speaking of, it is also available as: 4-Family Pack Rapid Ramen Cookers. So, yes, even the black sheep of the family can join in the delicious, dried noodle fun!

Coffee in the morning is an essential part of waking up. Or, one could just take a quick glance at any of these Vintage Coffee Kitchen Collectibles Figurines By Collections Etc. The set is comprised of coffee related accessories and all of these polyresin figures have crazy smiles on their faces. Not sure what they are so excited about though seeing as they are about to be ground, heated and brewed. Perhaps they have had too many cups of themselves to start off the day! In any event, the set is quite affordable at under $20 and would make for a fun gift for any coffee lover — assuming of course they can get past the expressions on these little guys in the morning.

The holidays are all about family, friends and food. And of course, wine. Sharing a bottle (or three) with family and friends over food is a fine way to finish the year. But if your gathering can’t finish the bottle, don’t let it go to waste. Let the Chef’s Red Pot Wine Bottle Stopper seal in that holiday spirit. Or wine as the case may be.
