This 9 piece stackable cookware set by designers Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn is smart. It’s a combination of their 4-piece Carving and Serving Set with the 3-piece Cool Bowl Set, and, as you can imagine, there’s all sorts of combinations to fit your needs. Chill foods, warm foods, or use each piece separately, no matter what you choose to do, you’ll have the right cookware to do it. And, it all stacks neatly away when you’re done.

Whoa. I don’t know about you, but my kitchen drawer
could use needs something like this. Currently I have the basic utensil organizers that are available everywhere, but they don’t fit like this custom one; they don’t even come close. Entrepreneur Keith Nielson created this system of modular sheets and dividers that you can trim and reposition specifically to your needs. Each set comes with one BaseMat (food-grade silicone) and an assortment of dividers.

We didn’t do any kind of Father’s Day gift guide this year, mainly because there weren’t a lot of requests, but mostly because we didn’t feel it necessary. You know what to get your father, right? No? Well, if your father figure likes cooking or grilling, I recommend this apron by Winter Session. It’s made from raw, unwashed denim and has the look of brand new overalls. Plus, there’s several pockets for tools and such.

If the La Via Lattea Cheese Knife Set was way too rich for your wallet (at $400, I’d say that’s likely), but you loooove your cheese enough to treat it to something sort of special, check out these puppies. Designed by the very same Mr. and Mrs. Gasparini, this series was intended as lower priced option for an “interested public but not necessarily to experts.”

These stoneware measuring cups are probably best suited for a weekend cook who has the time to use measuring cups without handles. I’m not sure how practical they are but I do think they’re lovely. Since I barely cook or bake I’d be fine using them, but they may not be suitable for someone that spends a lot of time in the kitchen.

Hmm, take a look at these kitchen utensils. You’re seeing a modular spatula system sourced from Quirky, which features several attachments that snap into a universal handle and are released by clicking the button. Not being all that adept in the kitchen, I’m not sure of the pros and cons, but it does appear to be a good idea.
Included in the set: storage block, ergonomic handle, and five detachable spatula heads.

Dishwashing is one of those chores few look forward to doing. However, it could be just a little bit more enjoyable for the rest of us with this set by VIPP. Rubber moulded steel protects your more fragile dishes and the brush has an easily exchangeable head. A handy bracket is included to hide everything away inside a cabinet door (though I suppose you could put it on view if you wanted).

Storage containers are probably one of the lesser exciting things to shop for, especially when you consider all the other accessories and gadgets it takes to make a house a home. These containers would fit well within the kitchen, office or bathroom, corralling all manner of small things in a tidy silhouette of wood and glass. An optional rubber lip can be slipped on to create airtight storage.
Small ($20) or Large ($23).
(Ack! Small is out of stock, fyi.)

What is this thingamajig, you say? Well, I know someone very picky about their ice cubes, and that someone would be quite happy to hear that this thingamajig is an ice tray that makes crystal clear ice. An insulated base allows air and impurities to compress at the bottom of the tray, leaving a block of clear ice at the top. Break apart for drinks or freeze flowers for decoration (does anyone do that?).

If you and yours obsess over getting your ingredients exactly right, this cutting board is right up your alley. Though it’s worth noting that even if you’re nowhere near being OCD, this cutting board could possibly push you to be more obsessive than normal. It looks like it’s not available right away, but you can sign up to receive an email notice once it’s available for purchase.

You might be familiar with the blankets and cushions of Scholten & Baijings, which are entirely amazing and retail anywhere from ~$250 per pillow and ~$700 – $1,700 per blanket (expensive, but, as I said, a-maze-ing). These graphic tea towels for Hay Denmark are an affordable way to enjoy the design duo’s fluorescent patterns; the towels cost $32 for a set of 2.

Similar to bamboo asian steamers, this tower can cook fish, meat, vegetables in the oven at the same time. Steaming preserves natural vitamins and minerals, so you’ll have a healthier meal too. A recipe book by Chef Morten Koster is included.
Also available from Scandi Living for £59.95.
