I even love gadgets that I'd never buy and that have been designed to fix a problem that is best fixed with a solution that is much less expensive. Today's example is the Savel by Dreamfarm. What we have here is a colorful [...]

thinkgeek-planet-plates

ThinkGeek has a set of plates designed by Leah Yael Levy that feature a planet from our solar system on each plate.  The Planetary Plates are 10" in diameter.  They are made of melamine, so they aren't microwave safe.  (There's a bit of confusion as to whether they are dishwasher safe.)  You get a set of [...]

rollie_egg_cooker_kalorik

In a carnival world where just about everything from chicken to butter can be eaten "on a stick", it was only a matter of time before the fad made its way to your kitchen.  Now I'm not particularly talented at making eggs either, although rarely have I faced the issues plaguing these poor people.  However, who [...]

butter-crocks

It seems many people are looking for the perfect method for buttering up their toasts and bagels.  Julie was disappointed with the knife that promised to use the heat of her hand to make butter spreadable that she reviewed yesterday.  As Julie mentioned, butter can actually be left out on the counter without refrigeration, but [...]

We've mentioned a couple of different Unikia products for carrying your lunch in the past.  One was a Compleat Robust lunch box, one was a Compleat FoodSkin that cradled your sandwich to keep it together as you assembled it (see related posts at the end of this article).  Today's product is the Compleat FoodBag.  Like the [...]

zipzicles-treat-bags

When I was a kid, my sisters and I loved frozen treats that we called Icicles.  There's a similar treat available now called Otter Pops.  I'm not sure what those ice-pops were made from, but I'm pretty sure it was nothing but sugar and artificial color and flavorings.  With Zipzicle Pouches, you can serve your [...]

liftware

Most of us take a lot for granted. We give almost zero thought to holding a spoon or fork, scooping up a bite of food, lifting it to our mouth and eating. It's something we all do multiple times every single day. It's a no-brainer. But for people who suffer from Essential Tremor and Parkinson's [...]

You can't actually build with this giant LEGO, because the bottom lacks the indentations to join up the blocks, but you can use it as a very cool lunchbox.  The LEGO Lunchbox is shaped like a traditional 2X4 LEGO brick, but its top lifts off so you can store your lunch inside.  It measures 3.9" X [...]

fiesta-taco-plates

I hate when we have taco night.  I like tacos, but I hate assembling the thing only to have it tip over and spill everything out onto my plate the minute I set it down.  I don't like those flat bottomed shells that stand on their own, because they are too wide and require too [...]

Ever since my cancer adventure a couple years ago (I can't believe it's been that long...), I've changed a lot of things in my diet in order to become healthier. I cut out 95% of the diet soda that I drink by carrying a Bubba Brands Hero bottle full of iced tea to work every [...]
