The Automatic Vacuum Sealing Food Preserver: “This container automatically creates a vacuum when you close its lid, providing oxygen-free food storage that preserves the freshness, flavor, and nutrients of food by up to three weeks. By removing all of the oxygen, the container inhibits microorganism growth and slows the oxidation of fruits, vegetables, bread, and pastries to a fraction of its natural pace. The device automatically maintains 16mbar (the optimal pressure for preserving foodstuffs) and reduces air moisture that can encourage mold growth. The lid opens by lifting the latch, providing easy access to food, and the unit automatically reseals once the lid is closed. The container is large enough to hold up to 16 apples has a dial on top of the lid that allows you to mark the date food was first stored”.

Teatoaster: Why do we have to waste energy and space when we can do two things in one time using the same gadget? This tools uses the necessary heating needed for the toaster to heat the tea or the milk thanks to a cavity that surround the tools. So from now one the “clack” of the ready toaster will indicate also that our tea is ready. Hence once we took off the bread from the toaster we just pour the drink into the cup and the breakfast is ready!

The future kettle: what happens if we use a modern object with an old one like a mobile phone and a kettle? So imagine that when you finish work and you’re ready to go home and outside is freezing the only thing you wish is a cup of hot tea, well you can actually get it ready when you go home. How? Well the only thing you have to do is to send a text to your kettle and that’s it. Funny eh? So once the kettle have received the text, in just few minutes will make the water boil. So in every situation in which you feel really lazy, for example if you are laying in the couch, with just a text you’ve got your cup of hot tea!

Cookie cutters

Wouldn’t be great to be able to make such perfect cookies? As I love cakes and sweets in general, I make cakes and also cookies. However the difficult part of it is that when you put the dough inside the cutters usually well almost every time half of the dough was stuck on the cutters so at the end I never got to make perfect cookies as I always wished. The picture above shows Christmas cookies while the one below shows animals cookies that children will definitely appreciate.

img34mWhere is the trick? Well if you observe these other two pictures you will see that there is a little knob and what you need to do is just press the Christmas or animal-shaped cutter into the dough, then push down and the stamps will be released perfectly without any imperfection.

So you can imagine how happy could be children or even your Christmas tree that doesn’t need anymore the same marble but something innovative that maybe during Christmas day you can even eat.

Chocolate milk, white chocolate, dark chocolate, chocolate with orange flavor, chocolate with mint, strawberries, with nuts and raisins, there are so many types of chocolate that it’s impossible to decide which is my favorite one. On the other hand, now that winter is coming I prefer having a nice cup of hot and dense chocolate. I really could drink every hour hot chocolate, and I’m sure that I’m not the only one. So I found this fantastic hot chocolate pot that is made especially for the chocoholic people. This pot guarantee a nice cup of hot chocolate and who wants can add milk as well, in fact an automatic frothed whips chocolate and milk into a creamy and delicate chocolate drink that not many people could refused. This pot can be heat in the microwave, in fact we don’t need to put the hot chocolate inside, we just put inside milk with the chocolate that we wish, then we close it and put it into the microwave. Furthermore this type of pot is heat resistant and prevents the hot chocolate to get cold immediately.

  Rolling Herb Mincer 

Do you remember the old “mezza luna” that our mum used to utilize when cutting parsley, coriander, basil, or sage? In reality I also got one in my house but I think that the one up here is ten times faster because has not one but four stainless-steel blades that with the back and forth motion are going to chop in a thousand of small pieces the herbs. So I guess that having one in the house it would be useful in term of saving time.

Apple Peeler-Corer

I know that it’s not the new fashionable design tools for cutting apples or potatoes but how useful is it? I guess that there is nothing better and simple to take off apples and potatoes peels that this peeler-corer. Furthermore it also prevent to eventual incidents that may occur with using knifes because here you only need to turn around the handle and that’s it.

Avocado Pitter/Slicer

Not many people love avocado, so this will be interesting for the ones who die for it. How many times did you try to cut the avocado in equals’ parts in order to prepare a nice dinner for you guests and how many time the avocado slipped from your hand because was too oily? It happened to me many times and in my opinion this tools is genial because first of all it will take three seconds to cut the avocado in slices and the more important the slices will be all equals so in won’t look odd when presenting them in a plate maybe accompanied with prawn cocktail. 





What’s new?

30 11 2008

Designers’ play with steel, transparency, colours, plastic, cast iron and stones. The bizarre objects that we see today in kitchen are countless, designers have gone out of the ordinary standard and with their creativity they design objects that at first they seem useless or out of the ordinary but in reality they are trendy useful and unique in their nature.

 

Some example? Alessi and Guzzini is a company very famous in this particular sector that some of the objects have become a real symbol of cult that won’t disfigure in a museum of contemporary art. An example is the squeeze juice of Philip Starck and the “open bottle” of Anna G that enter not only in the houses of people but also in the gallery and magazines of houses.

If we see the new magazines regarding the Alessi Company we can appreciate new objects as the Pop-up corkscrew that is a very elegant ornament for the house. In fact it has a round form and the material is steel. It’s very simple to use in fact we only need to put it in the neck of the bottle and press a little bit and then cheers…

skull-toasterSkull Toaster

 

In this post there will be all the funniest and crazy accessorizes that we could find in the kitchen. Designers have gone mad with put together all their ideas in this amazing object that I will show you below. Most of them come from the Alessi company but not all

Above you can see how a toaster is able to stamp in a slice of bread a skull. So just in case you hate someone in your house I guess that an accessorize like this could be useful to you or if you have a passion for skulls well there you go! Of course there aren’t just skull toaster but a vast variety.

If your feeling are not hate but love, well this can be a good accessorize to demonstrate someone how much you got love for him/her. 

This above represent flexible stamps/moulds made of silicon that gives the help that women or men need. In fact they don’t need anymore to put butter or flour because the extraction of the little heart is very easy thanks to the flexibility and to the nonstick. So basically they have been replaced by the normal metal shape that our gradma use to cook us biscuits.  Another advantage is that you can place them either in the oven or freezer that they won’t broke.
