Twisk

By squeezing the handle, the whisk head rotates… hmm, looks like it might be an improvement to the traditional whisk, but it’s the sort of thing you have to actually try to see if it works well. No endorsements by users on retailer’s site yet, so we’ll wait and see.

Give your wrist a rest with the amazing, inventive power of the Twisk™! The unique design of this mechanical whisk makes whisking light liquids faster and easier. Using one hand to squeeze the handle, the whisk head rotates to create the perfect peak on your egg whites – leaving your free hand to grip the bowl. Due to its sleek shape, Twisk™ is also perfect to use as a conventional whisk for thicker liquids and batters.

Dishwasher safe.

Kitchen Scrubbing Cloth

No, it’s not food, so don’t try to eat it. Actually, it is food, but in a recycled sense, so you could try to eat it but it probably wouldn’t do any favors for your tastebuds. They’re kitchen scrubber cloths; they’ll clean up messy dishes without detergent and I’m assuming they’re friendlier to the environment than the plastic alternative. (Let’s be honest here, how many of you would try the taste just out of curiosity? Hmm? What if I gave you $5? Maybe then?)

The natural abrasives in these scrubbing cloths make for a resiliant kitchen utility. No detergent is needed for use, though a tiny dab of soap can be applied for the greasiest of dishes. The scrubbing cloth can be used for several months, gets curlier and softer with use and resists odor and bacteria.

The yellow coarse scrub is made from recycled corn cobs while the red gentle scrub is made from peach pits.

Designer: Hiroki Hayashi, 2008

This is a trivet for small pots and for large pots in one! All you need to do is turn it inside out and you’ll flip it from the small one to the big one. Made out of silicone, it is not just very durable; it also keeps the color perfectly and adds just the right flexibility to make the flipping an easy task. The diameter of the inside version is 7″ or 18 cm and the outside diameter is 9.4″ or 23,7 cm, so just the right difference.
