Shake Up The Fridge With Magnetic Spice Jars

Good Cooking Magnetic Spice Jars

There is a large metal box in your kitchen that (hopefully) doesn’t get hot or wet. As it so happens, this large food storage container also allows for storage on the outside. Yup, it’s the fridge we’re talking about here and magnetic spice jars to decorate its surface.

The Good Cooking Magnetic Spice Jars are an affordable spice storage solution. The little dispensers are mostly made of metal, so they do stick to each other as well as to the side of the fridge. Each one has a see-through lid and openings for pouring or shaking. When it comes time to use, just pluck one off of the refrigerator door and shake — assuming that one hasn’t been playing Tetris on the fridge and the one you want to use is buried at the bottom of a shape avalanche.

Useful Beverage Dispenser Collapses For Storage

Useful UH-CB149 110 OZ 3.3L Collapsible Beverage Dispenser

It’s nice to have a beverage dispenser hanging about. Just go to it and fill up your cup (assuming of course that the beverage dispenser is actually filled with a drink). But the flip side of having handy-dandy drinks on hand is that the thing needs a place to live when not in use and drink dispensers don’t fold up too easily. Collapse on the other hand…

The Useful UH-CB149 110 OZ 3.3L Collapsible Beverage Dispenser is a drink dispenser that expands from 4 to 9 inches tall. The pop-up dispenser is an affordable way to keep the family hydrated at picnics or even just backyard BBQs. When the party is over and it’s time to go back inside, the drink dispenser collapses for easy storage — but it’s probably best to finish the beverages first.

The Watermelon Keg Kit

The Watermelon Keg Kit by Final Touch

Watermelons. It’s not like the big, funny-looking fruit needs any more help to amuse us, but still, it doesn’t hurt to try. Especially if our amusement involves enjoying a tall, cool one.

Fill it with wine, fill it with booze, fill it with soda; The Watermelon Keg Kit plays no favorites. And when the watermelon tap turns into a party-pleasing fun drink dispenser, don’t forget to bust it out again in the fall when everything tastes like pumpkin anyway.

Stainless Works Steel Spigot Pours It On

Stainless Works Stainless Steel Beverage Dispenser Replacement Spigot (Polished Finish)

So there you are, brand new drink dispenser in hand and ready to be filled. Everything looks great: nice glass serving vessel, perhaps a whimsical design along the side, sealed tightly to keep the bugs out… the beverage goes in… and the darn spigot is made of plastic.

Apparently, there are more than a few of you interested in upping your water, wine, booze and kombucha serving game. The Stainless Works Stainless Steel Beverage Dispenser Replacement Spigot (Polished Finish) might be just what the drink dispenser doctor ordered. Head on over to Amazon and check it out. They have specs such as “needs 5/8 inch or 16mm diameter opening to install” and “fits dispenser wall up to 11/16 inch or 17mm thick.” If that’s what you got, then that’s what you need. It’s got good reviews too.

Best of all is it’s well under twenty bucks, so if that plastic dispensing spigot just doesn’t look right when serving an elegant drink (or tea that has been brewing forever), then this steel spigot sounds like it’s worth it.

Happy Halloween!

The Pumpkin Tap Kit by KegWorks

You know what to do if your pumpkin survives pumpkin-smashing night, right? Turn it into a pumpkin drink dispenser with The Pumpkin Tap Kit!

Actually, you might want to use a fresh one, considering the tap turns the gourd into a big ol’ drink dispenser. And besides, those jack-o-lantern eyes, nose and mouth kind of make it hard to fill up with liquid.

Happy Halloween!
