IZ It Cocktail Time

IZ It Cocktail Time

To understand Iz you need some background: the Turks love this drink called Ayran or Airan, which is blended yogurt and water. They make it in a special kind of way, and as poetic as it may seem, using the Iz leaves a flower pattern on the user’s palm. The steel body of the cocktail maker is complimented with a blue intricate-pattern elastomer seal.

Illy Stays Chilly

Illy Stays Chilly

Drinking an espresso has never become more and more enjoyable as time goes on for you, has it? The first, second, and third sips are always the best because eventually your ice cubes melt. Then there is the dreaded: diluted drink! But wow have I got a doozy to be showing you. You know it’s the icecube’s fault that the drink got all watery. So it’s time to change the icecube. Presenting the espresso ice machine for Illy brand! Oh so lovely.

Pledge For Domestic Can Crushers

Pledge For Domestic Can Crushers

The Automatic Aluminum Can Crusher is designed as a battery operated, automatic, aluminum, can crusher for domestic purposes. It’s a nifty recycler that works on an 18vdc power tool battery (and/or an AC adapter), and chomps on 40 cans on a full charge and yet hungry for more! Cans get crushed to 40% their original volume, and that’s quite neat. Although what we see in the video is a very rough cut of what’s to be expected, the project has made its way to Kickstarter and a pledge is going around for it. Maybe you want to chip in.

Glassy French Press

Glassy French Press

If you’ve seen one french press, you’ve seen them all right? The art of the french press is in its simplicity. No complicated machinery or doo-dads. This french press is different because it’s molded out of a single piece of glass framed in metal. It’s not just a design aesthetic but for durability too. A single solid piece of glass is far more shatter resistant.

Kitchens Galore

Kitchens Galore

I have this obsession with kitchens. I’ve spent hours designing my dream kitchen with multiple manufacturers and have yet to put any plan into action. Call me crazy but the ratio of what I want and what I can actually afford is ridiculously large but Henrybuilt just introduced the Viola Park kitchen line promising luxury amenities at affordable costs in this economy. Let’s hit the jump, shall we?

These Beats No Trash

These Beats No Trash

Made of just oak and steel! This Modern Marvel shall amuse and astound you! You’ve got to see it! And perhaps even some day own it. If you dare. But I can’t help you with that you’ll have to contact the musician: designer Dominic Wilcox. And when you talk to him, tell him I said he should program in the Beastie Boys.

Something ironic.

Growing Pot, No Not That Kind

Growing Pot, No Not That Kind

EINTOPF is a growing pot. It starts off as a shallow sauce pan but extension rings and a flexible outer shell can increase the pot’s volume by almost 3x. The rationale is simple. Sometimes you start with a smaller pot just to sear. You want heat convection to be fast so there’s no need to start with a larger pot. However, stage 2 of the recipe calls for other ingredients. This is where EINTOPE shines because you just add an extension ring and continue cooking all in one pot.

Joseph Joseph is renowned for coming up with the most stylish and useful kitchen tools, and the latest one in their collection is the Slice & Store Kitchen Cutting board and Knife. So is this a regular cutting board that comes in a choice of electric hues? No, the color choices are there but ain’t regular, it’s got this special niche on the side where you can tuck in the matching (high quality Japanese stainless steel) knife. Smart right?

Hot Tea Magic

Hot Tea Magic

For when you’ve got no boiling water sitting around, and no lightsaber on hand, you’ve got the “Hot-T Wand.” Yes! All of life’s greatest solutions ARE wand-based. You betcha! Faster than the ol’ HP can whip up a tea-time heat’em’up spell, you’ve got hot water. It heats only the amount of water you need, and it’s got mega-safety measures, like a water sensor to prevent foolish flailings about and whatnot.

Single Hand Cook

Single Hand Cook

It’s easy for us folks to work in the kitchen, simply coz we have two hands. Fracture, permanent disability, paralysis to one side…such situations don’t discriminate and make doing regular stuff like cutting apples, peeling oranges, slicing veggies, buttering a toast; a challenge. The One-Hand Kitchen Equipment is designed for people who use can use only one hand, and the beauty of the products (7 in all) is that both lefties and righties can use it with ease.

Now A Mathematical Kettle

Now A Mathematical Kettle

Looking at this Parabola Kettle, I’m quite reminded of the Turtle and Geometric adventures of kettle-design. It brings up questions like do we really need a drastic change in shapes of kettles? Or should we focus only on functionality? Yea, the kettle sits in its quite corner in the kitchen; it makes no demand except for aesthetic appeal and timely maintenance. So does it warrant a parabolic re-design? You tell me…
