Hot Stuff! Food Thermometer

Yep, you read that right, Hot Stuff! is the name of this food thermometer. And it looks kind of exciting, if you can say that about a thermometer.

All On Board

Now, isn’t this a convenient cutting board? Designer Alain Gilles’ All On Board is a wooden cutting board just like your others, yes, but it rests within a useful plastic scoop. This scoop slides along the board, allowing you to separate food from their scraps for easy disposal and move ingredients directly from board to pan. The funnel-shaped handle acts as a pouring vessel for juices or stocks- handy for those ‘au jus’ dishes, right?

Lékué Popcorn Maker

Everyone loooves popcorn, but not everyone loves the pre-packaged kind with all the preservatives and other unwanted ingredients. So, make your own using the Lékué Popcorn Maker.

The suction lid will keep all your popcorn from overflowing, and simply ‘pop’ it in the dishwasher for cleaning. The silicone bowl collapses down for easy storage.

Triangle Cutting Board

Don’t ask me why you need a triangle cutting board, because I don’t know. Maybe you simply cannot stand rectangles and only allow equilateral shapes in your vicinity at all times. If that’s the case, you’re a little weird/crazy and we should probably be friends. Each triangle is handcrafted by local San Francisco wood worker Luke Bartels from locally salvaged and milled wood. Three sizes available.
