Sea Waffles Waffle Maker

Sea Waffles Waffle Maker

What do you think of when you see a waffle? A dolphin? So smart you are! A crab? Who doesn’t think of crab when they think of waffles? A sea horse? Well, of course!

The Sea Waffles Waffle Maker understands. The little clamshell appliance serves up dolphin, crab and sea horse waffles quickly and easily with none of that fishy smell. Just pour in the batter and in moments the little fritters critters will be ready to eat. Because everybody knows syrup goes better with waffles than sea food.

Lobster Bottle Opener

Lobster Bottle Opener

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!

Crab Dip Bowl not just for crab dip

Crab Dip Bowl Set

I find something slightly unnerving about serving platters made to look like animals. Considering the fact that most crabs would likely not approve of crab dip, it’s no wonder that this particular giant crab is holding a lighthouse hostage. If you can get past the steely glare offered by this hand painted Crab Dip Bowl Set, the lighthouse serves as a convenient 5-inch spreader. The crab itself holds 8-ounces, and in view of the size of those claws on the thing, you just may want to serve a simple cheese spread instead.

Lobster Spoonrest

Lobster Spoonrest

Practically every time I cook, I drop a utensil on the floor. Usually it is a result of trying to balance one too many things or to avoid messing up another dish. Whatever the reason, I could dramatically reduce utensil-related mishaps if I only had a stable base to rest cooking implements – perhaps something like this Lobster Spoonrest.

Bright red and sure to provoke conversation, the handy earthenware crustacean is a convenient holder for your cooking spoon. Easily wiped clean, the spoon holder saves countertops and stoves from the drippy, runny messes that all too often accompany mealtime. No matter what you’re cooking, this helpful little lobster is there to give you a claw hand.

Cover up the goodies before you break ‘em out

Fat Daddio's Lid For Half Sheet Pan

A secret family recipe that is always a hit consists of a crab and cheese* mixture on bread. These sure-fire party treats need to set up in the freezer before they can be unleashed. If I’m bringing them to a party, what better way than to just grab ‘em out of the freezer?

The Fat Daddio’s Lid For Half Sheet Pan is a perfect solution for storing and traveling with baked (or about-to-be-baked) foods. Snapping into place and with a height of 1.75 inches above the pan, the lid is easy to use and accommodates many cakes or other foods. Plastic wrap may be good for some applications, but if you’ve got a ringer of a recipe, you’re going to be bringing that tray out all the time. Best to cover up, and protect those appetizing goodies.

*Yes, I know. Fish and cheese rarely go together. But remember, crustaceans are not fish, and anybody who has ever had a shrimp and cheese po’ boy in New Orleans would understand.
