Planetary Plates take your meals to new heights

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 …

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 …

Freeze your own treats in these plastic zipper 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 gives those with hand tremors a better experience at meal time

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 …
