It’s hard to deny the power of lobster; it is also hard to deny the deliciousness of beer. Luckily, those two things go together like lobster and sand. Sand-casted aluminum, that is. Put them together and what do you got? Why, a Lobster Bottle Opener of course. Cheers!

Rosle Jar Opener: Free The Pickles!

Rosle Jar Opener

Jars may be pretty convenient for food storage and transportation, but when it comes time to actually get into a jar, they can be pretty darn inconvenient! While the clear glass may help one to see what’s oh-so-close on the inside, it does little good when the lid is screwed on too tight. Luckily, physics has the answer: give the lid a handle to increase the leverage.

Now, instead of rushing off to go look for duct tape and a butter knife, consider a more elegant solution: The Rosle Jar Opener. The pickles will still taste just as good. Maybe even better since there won’t covered in glass from when the jar got smashed on the counter in frustration.

Trudeau Stress Less Safety Can Opener

Trudeau Stress Less Safety Can Opener

Despite the marvels of modern kitchen technology, cans can’t open themselves. (Those pull-tab ones may come close, but we aren’t there yet.) Electric can openers, despite their ease-of-use, take up valuable counter space; however, for many, they are stuck with them as hand-held options can be hard to use. The Trudeau Stress Less Safety Can Opener tries to eliminate this issue by providing increased leverage with the rotating cranking arm. Additionally, the cutting mechanism leaves no sharp edges, making this can opener not only easier to use, but safer too.

Retrosink: Antique Winged Corkscrew

True Fabrications Antique Winged Corkscrew

It isn’t always easy to find kitchen gear that could belong in any era. An antiqued microwave oven? No thanks. But an antiqued corkscrew? Well that just makes sense. The True Fabrications Antique Winged Corkscrew may not be a true antique, but it does look as if it belongs in a bygone era. Might even work better than that fancy electric corkscrew collecting dust in the back of the cupboard.
