Compressing Containers Squeeze The Air Out Of Your Stored Food

Anyone who’s squeezed every last molecule of air out of a Ziploc bag full of leftovers knows that food lasts longer that way. But instead of man-handling a plastic bag, or buying some kind of vacuum contraption to get the air out, consider upgrading your canisters to Prepara’s new Evak line which features a manual piston to eradicate O2.


A Cutting Board Blade Sharpener Ensures Your Knives Are Ready To Slice

Not only does a dull blade make slicing and dicing more difficult, it can actually make working with knives a little dangerous. An unsharpened blade is more prone to slipping off food than cutting it, and then ending up somewhere painfully unwanted. So Joseph Joseph has created a cutting board with a built-in knife sharpener so you can be sure your blades are sharp before you get to work.


A Spartan Knife Block That's Anything But Austere

You can pretend they’re there for easy access, but there’s something primevally enjoyable about leaving your cutting implements on display in a knife block. It’s like knights mounting swords on the wall of a castle, and it’s also why this knife block that looks like a Spartan under attack is particularly amusing.


Serve An 8-Bit Breakfast With This Poke-A-Pixel Wafflemaker

Quirky’s approach of bringing user-submitted inventions to life pre-dates Kickstarter by quite a few years. And the company’s track record at successfully producing these often highly original creations means you can actually get excited about a wafflemaker that lets you create custom pixelated images every morning. What a time to be alive.


A Chemistry Set Spice Rack Puts Science In The Spotlight At Supper Time

Even something as simple as making toast involves a whole lot of complex science that most of us don’t even think about. But when dinner preparation involves a chemistry set full of spices, you’ll be hard pressed to not wonder about all the chemical reactions going down in your dinner.


Make Meals From Scratch Using This Turntable Grater

There are some that believe that even cracking a smile in the kitchen is an insult to the culinary arts. For the rest of us, the internet’s a treasure trove of fun, but often useless, gadgets for the kitchen. This DJ Grater manages to be both whimsical and useful, letting you grate cheese like you were spinning on the wheels of steel, and even perfectly portion pasta.


This Mixer Could Have Originally Been An Industrial Factory Robot

Mixing and kneading dough for bread can be a back-breaking process. It’s a chore best left to a grandparent who’s been doing it all their life — or a machine like Bosch’s new MaxxiMUM mixer, which actually looks like a robotic arm from an automotive factory that was laid off but has since found other work.


These Stealth Knives Only Need Sharpening Every 25 Years

What good is a fancy set of kitchen knives if after deboning a few chickens and julienning a bunch of celery stalks it’s already too dull to handle a ripe tomato? You don’t want to spend your time in the kitchen toiling away on a sharpening stone, so the folks at TB Groupe designed a set of knives featuring laser-bonded titanium-carbide surfaces that only need to be sharpened every quarter century or so.


An Egg Spinning Contraption That Pre-Scrambles Them In The Shell

It turns out the term ‘pudding’ has different meanings all over the world. In North America it’s usually a creamy dessert treat, in the UK it’s a soggy bread mess, and in Japan it’s a pre-scrambled boiled egg that’s drizzled with caramel sauce. And now the Japanese version is a lot easier to make with this whimsical looking spinning contraption from Takara Tomy.


A Tiny Battery-Powered Beater That Mixes Better Than A Spatula

Prepara has managed to miniaturise the handheld electric mixer your parents used by eliminating one of the spinning metal whisks and swapping the power cord for a set of four AAA batteries. Not only is it lighter and easier to use, it will also free up a bunch of drawer space.
