The Launch BOx bottle opener will alert your friends the next time you pop the top off a cold one. The one-handed AAA battery-powered wood and steel bottle opener is "smart" because it pairs with an app on your smartphone to send a "cheers" to a group of your friends when you open a bottle. [...]

stojo-collapsiblecup

Are you a beverage drinker? Gotta have your java in the morning (like yours truly)? The travel container in which I carry my daily coffee works fine, but it does take up a lot of space in my EDC. That's one reason why stojo caught my eye. It's a 12-ounce (355 mL) beverage cup that collapses [...]

avex-1

I've got a water bottle I've carried for about 5 years. I don't think I've biked anywhere without it since I bought my current bike. It's steel, has one of those pull-up spouts, and sweats worse than I do in our Southern humidity. So when the opportunity to test the AVEX thermal water bottle with [...]

I like my hot coffee. OK, I have to HAVE TO have it in the morning. However, recently my buddy Brian suggested I try cold drip coffee. He'd rigged up some brewing method with some type of brewer designed for camping, but he swore it worked well for creating cold-drip brews. So when Julie provided [...]

Fizzics-FZ101-4

Not so long ago a group of friends and I were discussing how a vacation property we were staying at didn't have an wine aerator. One friend took a jab at another and jokingly said, "that wouldn't help the cheap hooch you drink anyway!" We all laughed and went on to talk of other things, but [...]

takeya thermo tumbler-05

Not too long ago I bought what I thought was a pricey insulated cup for my cold drinks.  When I spotted the Takeya ThermoTumbler 20 oz., I thought "this looks familiar", so I thought I'd see if there were any differences. • Double-wall vacuum insulation keeps your drink cold or hot for hours. • Clear [...]

juicepresso-platinum-10

A few years ago when I was over at my brother in law's home, he asked if we wanted some fresh apple juice. He then proceeded to juice up a batch of apples for us with a new juicer he had purchased. The juice tasted great, but then he spent the next several minutes cleaning [...]

Barbarian - 1

I'm not much of a drink mixer. I like cocktails, but don't do much mixing myself. Part of the reason is that, other than a knife, a shot glass, and a corkscrew, I really don't have many of the tools needed to make those fun concoctions. But, as an intrepid gadgeteer, I knew we shouldn't [...]

We live pretty far off the beaten path and get our water from a well. For some of you this may seem perfectly normal but in the greater Seattle area it's definitely not the standard. Our water is pretty hard and even with a home treatment system, we drink bottled water that we refill as needed. Our [...]

Wouldn't it be nice if all our consumables were always automatically replenished? That our furnaces would order and replace their own filters, that our printers would order and replace their own ink/laser cartridges and paper, that our refrigerators would order our staple food items, etc. Well, maybe we are one step closer to such a world [...]

I tend to be a little too eager to drink my hot tea on a cold day which always results in a burned tongue. If you're like me, then you might be interested in the Glantop LED Temperature Display Electric Stainless Steel Intelligent Smart Coffee Cup. It uses LED indicator lights to display the temperature (122°F-203°F [...]

Kole1

There's a new Kickstarter campaign for something we've not seen a lot of on The Gadgeteer - a thermal flask. It's called the Kole, and is handmade from stainless steel and oak. It can hold 2.4 ounces, and hold hot espresso (4 shots!) or cool whiskey, unaffected by the atmosphere in your pocket, bike bag, [...]
