Slow cookers are slow, right? That’s okay; they are supposed to be. While they are sitting their doing their thing, flavors are developing into a deep, rich structure that is often well worth the wait. But that waiting can take from morning til night.
In anticipation of all day cooking, what better way than to think ahead and prepare with a nocturnal buddy? The Owl Pattern Crock-Pot Slow Cooker is a basic slow cooker with a fun, whimsical owl-themed design. Will it make for better food as an end result? Who knows?

Do you have a kitchen? Does it have drawers in it? Of course it does. Do those drawers have hot dogs in them? Probably not. But they could.
The Smart Planet HDS1 Steam-O-Matic Red Hot Dog Steamer upgrades the contents of kitchen drawers from boring old utensils to exciting and delicious steamed hot dogs. The appliance lives on the kitchen counter and requires only a twist of the on/off dial to operate. Fill with water, wieners and buns and within five minutes you could be chowing down on a delicious hot dog.
Who ever said kitchen remodeling had to be a lengthy process? Five minutes is more like it!

Why spiral once when you can spiral four times? Spiral cutters seem to be big right now, and it’s easy to see why. They are simple contraptions that make it easy to add a dimension of flair to home cooked meals.
Often however, they are unitaskers: little gadgets that only do one thing. That’s not necessarily a bad thing though; think of a common grater — they don’t do much else than grate food, but are extremely handy little devices in the kitchen. Of course, having more grating options like fine, medium or course makes it all the more useful. So too with the spiral cutters.
The Paderno World Cuisine 4-Blade Spiralizer ups the ante for a spiral cutter and features four interchangeable blades:
– Straight/Accordion Blade: Create ribbon cuts for salads, shredded cabbage for coleslaw, vegetable pasta, apple chips, and when used with the included pin you can create the popular spiral cut potato skewers.
– Angel Hair Shredding Blade (NEW): This blade creates perfect angle hair strands out of fruit and vegetables. Angel hair strands are ideal for use in soups, salads, and as a replacement for traditional pasta with a delicate sauce.
– Fine Shredding Blade: This is our popular “spaghetti” blade and is used to create a medium-sized cut for pasta replacement, stir-fry, and salads. Theses strands will hold up to a heavier or more substantial sauce like Bolognese.
– Chipping Blade: This blade allows you to create thicker stands or cuts. These thicker cuts are perfect for roasting and sautéing, and create an amazing base for many sauces. Make curly fries in mere moments with just a few turns of the handle.
The little kitchen countertop prep tool works by attaching a fruit or vegetable to the blade plate on one end and prongs on the other. Then, just twist the handle and let your imagination spin.

A parsec is a unit of distance. A Star Wars parsec is a unit of time. (Unless George Lucas was telling the truth…) In any event, dinner will be ready in no time with this Star Wars Millennium Falcon Cutting Board. As for who gets to choose what’s for dinner? Well, let’s just say let the Wookiee win.

What do you get the person who has everything? Nothing, of course. The really hard question when it comes to gift-giving is what to get the person who only likes certain things. Say, for example, golf and cheese. And sometimes wine.
Well, clearly when they are not golfing, they will be needing the Picnic Time Sand Trap Cheese Board and Tool Set. The golf-themed serving board comes with wine utensils as well as cheese tools and brings it all together just like when out on the 18th hole.
Got a golfer in your life who likes wine and cheese? Just follow the links (ahem) to find the gift that scores a hole in one.
Oh, and don’t forget the clubs:

Traditionally, for some reason, people like to clink glasses together to celebrate a toast. But what happened before that? Well, they clunked glasses together to celebrate a toast, of course!
Now, you too can celebrate the past, present and/or future with these Handmade Coconut Wood Wine Glasses. The come in a set of four with each one measuring 6 inches tall. Perfect for celebrating any occasion by toasting with wine, champagne or coconut water as the case may be.
And to be fair, the drinkware probably does not ‘clunk’ during a toast. But, sounding like a horse clopping is another thing all together! Cheers!
