It’s In The Bag: Silicone Lemon Squeezer Pouch

The Silicone Lemon Squeezer Pouch from Kitchen Allure

The Silicone Lemon Squeezer Pouch from Kitchen Allure has nothing to hide (except lemons). The name says it all: You slice a lemon, put it in the pouch and squeeze. The seeds stay in the silicone pouch, while the freshly squeezed lemon juice pours through little strainer holes onto waiting food or drinks below. Adding a splash of citrus is sure to brighten up faces of eaters and drinkers alike — and this time not from getting citrus in the eye!

It Is Only The Owl Whooo Knows Tea

Tovolo Owl Tea Infuser

Tea is (often) caffeinated. Owl are nocturnal. Coincidence? Clearly the Tovolo Owl Tea Infuser doesn’t think so.

The little guy is made of silicone and holds loose leaf tea and can be filled easily via its removable base. Other tea infusers in the set include a pig, a sheep, an anchor and a gingerbread man. Now what they have to do with drinking tea is anybody’s guess. Perhaps it is only the owl who knows.

It’s Okay to Drop These Silicone Wine Glasses

WineMeUp Unbreakable Silicone Wine Glasses

Wine glasses have a tendency to not last too long. Such is the nature of the beast. Drinking wine gets you drunk, getting drunk means not holding on to things so well. Things that don’t get held on to very well tend to break when they hit the floor. It’s a vicious cycle that wine glasses must endure.

Wine glass makers have quite the repeat business, but their stranglehold on the wine-drinking community may be near an end. The WineMeUp Unbreakable Silicone Wine Glasses won’t shatter or crack after a few (too many).

Of course, the silicone stemless glasses are flexible, so there may be a new issue at hand for red wine drinkers who like to squeeze their glasses too tight — but don’t worry, laundry detergent makers will be happy for your repeat business.

No Runs, No Drips, No Tea Bags

The Friendly Swede's Silicone Tea Infuser

There you are staring right into the deep, dark abyss — of a wonderful cup of tea. But all is not rosy: in your hand there is a dripping tea ball, running hot tea down your arm. No, this is not what tea should be.

There is a (colorful) solution.

The Friendly Swede Silicone Tea Infusers are little tea-brewing accessories that bring a drip tray along for the ride. Each fun, alien-looking tea infuser has its very own drip tray incorporated into the design. Comprised of stainless steel and silicone, the infusers feature easy-to-grab handles that make it easy to transfer the device right onto the drip tray when the loose-leaf brew is ready.

Four to a set, the pink, green, red and orange tea infusers offer a bright alternative to the dark mystery of just where the heck to set down dripping wet tea leaves.

Lekue Silicone Waffle Baker Mold Is Not A Monster

Lekue Silicone Waffle Baker Mold

Behold the amazing half-waffle, half-not-waffle thing!

There are two sides to every story, and now, there are finally two sides to a waffle. For all of eternity, waffles were created by pouring batter into a waffle iron. The lid would close and out would come a perfectly formed waffle with pockets on either side. The mad scientists at Lékué see things differently.

The Lekue Silicone Waffle Baker Mold is a silicone mold that is used to bake waffles in the oven. Pour batter in and bake. The result is like something out of a half baked monster movie. Except there’s nothing half-baked about this waffle maker baker. Half waffles maybe, but not half-baked.

Even Frankenstein’s monster was misunderstood. Perhaps in time, people will come to accept these weird waffles that only have pockets on one side. Until that far off sci-fi future date, we will have to learn how to live in this brave, new world of one-sided waffles.

Or just flip the waffles over since pockets are only useful on one side anyway.
