Hermetus Bottle Opener & Resealer

The Hermetus Bottle Opener is not your usual bottle opener. The resealing function is what sets this gadget apart.


Home Made

This Home Made Cookie Stamp made me laugh!

Robot Measuring Cup

It’s a robot built out of measuring cups. Yep. Very cool.

Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini Fritters? Yes, please.

Kitchenware that made me smile

I couldn’t help but chuckle at the sight of these Kitchen Utensils over at Fab.com designed by Raia Studio. From left to right: Sud Green Dish Brush, Gaby Green Cheese Grater and Marshall Green Potato Masher. For the next three days you can get them over at Fab.

I admit though, that I am afraid my kids would want to play with them, not ideal, especially in the case of the grater.


Punchfork uses real-time data like tweets and Facebook shares to measure which recipes are grabbing the attention of users. Their proprietary rating system assigns each recipe a popularity score from 1 to 100. The higher a recipe’s score, the more it has been talked about and shared on the web.

Traditional recipe sites list page after page of search results in no discernible order. With Punchfork, you see only the highest quality recipes, presented in a beautiful magazine-like visual layout.

punchfork.com has me incredibly excited: I love you Internet!

Cake Pops

Ever since I tasted a Cake Pop I have been wondering how to make them myself. That’s where the Cake Pops Book by Bakerella comes in. Ordered!


Gojee is a beautifully designed new food lover destination. Tell Gojee what you’re craving and what you have in your kitchen and they’ll spoon feed your eyes something dreamy. Got Flour? Black Pepper? Truffle-laced Whole-grain Farm-swaddled Pork Loin? They got a recipe for that.

Quick Pop Maker

I keep coming back to this Zoku Quick Pop Maker. And now I am trying to convince myself that ‘blogging about it is in fact the new buying’. Hopefully this post will keep me from hitting that buy button.

It looks like so much fun though. (sigh)

Square Eggs

I am totally intrigued by these square eggs which apparently you can make with this Egg Cuber.

Cooking in the Future (1990s)

This video from an early 1990’s AT&T concept video shows a futuristic world of voice recognition, networked computing and nearly sentient robotic sous chefs. Quite amusing.

Pixel Oven Mitts. Yes, seriously. Made me smile.

The OCD Chef

Leave it up to Fred&Friends to come up with new products that put a smile on your face. I couldn’t help but chuckle when I saw this OCD Chef Cutting Board. And the AppKins. (They don’t seem to be listed in the product pages yet, but are announced on the homepage.) I am so getting the AppKins for our office..

Knife Rack

This minimalist bamboo knife rack by Taylors Eye Witness would look good in our kitchen. Wondering if it could also be used to hold keys?


I completely agree with BBlinks, this apron from Merriam Webster is totally ‘adorkable’.

Chop Round Knife

Paolo Lucidi and Luca Pevere wanted a usable knife in a simple design that sits well in the hand and which has an amusing and aesthetically stylish form. So, here it is, their design, the Chop Round Knife. With one hand, easily chop chocolate, herbs, charcuterie, veggies. Totally wishlisted!

Oh, Fuuuuuudge!

Kelli Anderson is a NYC based designer. An incredibly talented designer, I must add. But it doesn’t stop there. She also makes a killer Fudge. (Or Fuuuuuuudge, as she says.) We here at studiomates have been lucky to receive many of her Fudge deliveries in the past few months. Chewing on one of these pieces of heaven a few weeks ago, I asked Kelli if she’d be up for sharing her grandmother’s recipe. Of course, she said. So she went ahead, photographed her process and just put up this blogpost.

Make sure to check out the boxes she uses to deliver her Fuuuuuuudge in. They are handmade and oh-so-georgeous. Total killer!

Cut & Paste

Yes, more cutting board goodness. (Seen these last week?) This Cut & Paste cutting board by Klaus Häckl is a functional beauty.

Available at Made by Design

(thank you Chesley)


I think I have found a new love: cutting boards:

Cloud Cutting Board. Made me smile.

The Transfer cutting board shows a simple and effective solution to the old problem of transferring food from the cutting board to the pan. Thanks to a simple cutout it allows you to insert a plate, so that you can just slide your freshly cut ingredients onto it.
