Chill Your Zombies On The Go: Portable Mini-Fridge

goFridge Mini Fridge Portable Electric Cooler

Everybody seems to like the ‘Walking Dead’ television show (except when they kill off the ‘wrong’ characters), even appliance product descriptions like this portable mini-fridge. Of course, it doesn’t say anything about zombies, but I think we all know. Judge for yourself from this product description:

Of course, zombies have been immersed in popular culture for decades. It’s even got to the point where zombies may or may not exist. However, no matter if you are fighting off hordes of the undead, or just kicking back on a Saturday evening, a nice drink in hand deserves to be chilled. And if you are drinking the famous tiki drink named the zombie, you’ll need a place to store all those ingredients.

Clearly, it’s a good time for zombie fans to be alive not undead!

Go Team!

Crock-Pot SCCPMD1-CH Hook Up Connectable Entertaining System, Double Oval 1-quart, Metallic Charcoal

Happy big game day! Not only is it the Super Bowl of football (and television commercials), but it is also the Super Bowl of the snack food! Best (and worst) food day since Thanksgiving.

If you’re hosting a Super Bowl party, be sure to have both teams represented on the living room table. Whether you are rooting for Patriot’s red or Seahawk’s green, having food to match is but one way to ensure parity at the viewing party. Of course, beware what you serve around those Patriot’s fans; there’s a good chance they’ll let all the air out of a spinach souffle.

Play it safe and score a touchdown with the Crock-Pot SCCPMD1-CH Hook Up Connectable Entertaining System, Double Oval 1-quart. Just don’t be surprised to find any “nautical blue” food coloring added to the mix that nobody seems to know how it got there!

Pollos Hermanos Fry Batter Bucket

Pollos Hermanos Fry Batter Buckets

Fancy yourself a collector of odd food-related paraphernalia? The uber popular television show, Breaking Bad (“The best thing on television ever except maybe for The Wire” –Everybody), has wrapped and they are selling off some of the props. Yes, you can bid on Walter White’s Briefs but why would you want to? Perhaps instead, consider a Pollos Hermanos Fry Batter Bucket. The screen-used prop is guaranteed from Sony and for a starting bid of only $150, it could be yours. Fry batter and bullet holes not included.

PolyScience Anti-Griddle

PolyScience AG30AC1B Anti-Griddle

Griddles are nice and all, but they do a lousy job when it comes time to chill things down. That’s probably for the best considering hot cakes are supposed to be hot and all. But when it is time to flip the switch and flash freeze some food, the freezer above the fridge just takes too long.

Enter the PolyScience Anti-Griddle.

With a surface temperature of -30°F (-34.4°C) the cold, cold gadget is capable of freezing food on contact. It’s made appearances on TV shows like Iron Chef and is now available to order for the home. Beware, it’s not cheap though; buying one will set you back well over a grand.

Frozen pancakes anyone?

Product Description:
PolyScience temperature control expertise goes well beyond Sous Vide and other methods of adding heat. We’re also experts at taking heat away quickly. The resulting flash freezing enables you to quickly turn sauces, purees, crèmes, vinaigrettes and other foods into very different solid or semi-frozen creations. Cool, creamy centers and crunchy surfaces can be created in just seconds with the PolyScience Anti-Griddle featuring a -30°F / -34.4ºC plate that allows rapid unidirectional freezing. The Anti-Griddle flash freezing technique, originally inspired by Chef Grant Achatz, allows you to easily prepare appealing dual-texture creations and explore an entirely new culinary realm. The possibilities are truly endless. Create frozen desserts and appetizers with cool, liquid centers. Combine flash frozen lollipops with a novel ingredient in place of traditional sticks. For example, a vanilla caramel ice cream lollipop on a rosemary sprig. Top salads with frozen vinaigrettes that melt on the plate when served. Adorn dishes with intricate frozen ornaments, easily transferred from the Anti-Griddle to the plate. Flash freeze tableside or at the buffet to provide guests with unique, personal and exciting dining experiences.

***UPDATE 10/8/14*** The link above is broken, so check out the Anti-Griddle directly at Polyscience.

Doctor Who Tardis Lunch Box Packs A Big Lunch

Doctor Who Limited Edition TARDIS Tin Tote Lunch Box

By some wonderful quirk of quantum televisionary, the Tardis from Doctor Who happens to be bigger on the inside than its outside should allow. Sounds like whatever technology that powers the time-traveling space ship has something in common with appetites. Say, like when your eyes are bigger than your stomach.

The Doctor Who Limited Edition TARDIS Tin Tote Lunch Box understands. Appearing to the rest of the world as an ordinary lunch box made to look like an old-timey blue police box, the collectible tote travels at your side and supplies sustenance whenever you shall need it. Because chances are even if you forget to pack enough lunch, there will still be something to eat in the pantry — it’s just past the swimming pool and the art gallery.

…To Boldly Go Where No Spice Has Gone Before

Westland Giftware Star Trek Command Insignia Salt and Pepper Shakers

Trekkies, rumor has it, are an obsessive bunch. So too, perhaps, are the salt-spillers of the world. Clearly then, there can be only one solution for the Trekkie who feels the need to toss a pinch of salt over their left shoulder after knocking over the shaker. Westland Giftware Star Trek Command Insignia Salt and Pepper Shakers to the rescue!

Standing at the ready on the table top, the pair are held in place with a small magnet. As for the conundrum of how salt spilled on the floor is different than salt tossed on to the floor, well, let’s just say they are and leave it at that. Kind of like how Trekkies had to learn to accept the reboot.
