We have a nice little kitchen gadget for you today called the Twin One Cutlery. This gadget is a couple of cutlery pieces that when combined together form an unusual but simple to use pair of chopsticks.
Specifically the knife and fork each have a slot that can from a hinge. This makes gripping the food far easier than using traditional chopsticks and will ensure you don’t starve to death trying to get that food from the plate to your mouth. Created by DesignWright and available from Lekue, the Twin One Cutlery is available in three colors; brown, green, or red.
Having embarrassed myself on more than one occasion in a Chinese restaurant by having to ask for a fork and knife I can totally see where this idea has come from. Why store both chopsticks and knives and forks when you can just have sets of Twin One Cutlery to cater to people with different chop stick using abilities.

Well at the minute I personally don’t have a problem opening the lids of bottles of Coke, but I can understand many people do. The young and old may have a problem gripping and twisting the lid at the same time essentially limiting them to cans only. The Easy Cap aims to help them by providing a teardrop shaped bottle lid to aid removal.
If this concept idea works and is easy to manufacture, I could see this bottle lid idea being taken up by the major drinks manufacturers. Its ergonomic and smooth design seems so simple, why anyone else hasn’t came up with this idea before is a mystery.

Find preparing dishes in the kitchen while standing a tiring job? Now, you won’t need to endure the leg soreness any longer, as this new kitchen gadget from Hammacher Schlemmer aims to make you more comfortable when you stand for long periods. Known as the Chef’s Fatigue Relieving Floor Mat, this product is based on the concept of restaurant floorings to relieve fatigue of those working in the kitchen for long hours.
Using the same patented cushioning as those in restaurant kitchens, this anti fatigue floor mat is able to rid you of the exhaustion you feel in your legs, feet and back after prolonged standing. Thicker in relation to typical mats by fifty percent, the Chefs Fatigue Relieving Floor Mat is made of polyurethane, which is soft yet offers good support by suspending your body weight and reducing the impact on your joints when standing. The polyurethane gel mat is able to distribute your weight evenly and conform to the contours of your feet, which helps relieve your pressure points.
The material will neither buckle with time nor develop depressions as it will regain its original form once you step off it, unlike the cases of foam and gel mats. The edges of the mat also will not curl inwards at the edges like how gel mats do, and it is more durable compared to gel mats. In addition, the chefs fatigue relieving floor mat can resist abrasions, stains, punctures, resist heat up to 400 º F, and is 99.3% antimicrobial. You also don’t need to worry about slipping and tripping as confident footing is ensured by its non-slip backing as well as its beveled edges.
When you think of smoking food, you think of an outdoor activity which takes place in the open or in a out-building or something. However with the advances in technology you can now smoke food in your house without smoking the place out. Today’s kitchen gadget is called the Indoor Pressure Smoker and is available from Hammacher.
Claimed to be able to cook barbecue brisket in just one hour as opposed to traditional methods which takes five times longer, this electric indoor pressure smoker uses pressure to speed up the process. Producing a pressure of up to 15psi, this indoor pressure smoker only requires three to five wood chips to produce a fragrant flavour enhanced piece of food. The internal chamber is sealed so that no hot smoke is released into your household.
The Indoor Pressure Smoker also operates as an excellent electronic pressure cooker if you choose not to use the smoker function. So you get twice the benefit.
I am not a big fan of wine, much prefer beer but I know there are a lot of people that do love wine. Having struggled getting the cork out of them a couple of times, I know how hard it can be. This process can be more difficult for older wine drinkers or people unable to grip a corkscrew tight enough. A new kitchen gadget called the Best Electric Wine Opener may help.
Having received a top rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute this Electric Wine Opener could be the best one available to buy currently. It received top marks for its ability to insert the corkscrew into the cork and extract it in a fast and efficient manner.
The device attaches to the neck of the wine bottle and automatically plunges the corkscrew into the cork. This ensures that the corkscrew enters in the centre of the cork making extraction easier. The best part about it is that opening the bottle of wine requires no force whatsoever for both synthetic and real corks.
The Best Electric Wine Opener should become a popular item in wine drinkers households, being particularly useful for events such as parties and dining as multiple bottles will be opened during the course of the night.
The unit currently runs on battery power with a charging unit included in the price. A full 8 hour charge is capable of de-corking 40 bottles of wine.
