White and wood is used so often in product design because it always looks great and its style is timeless. Designer Klaus Hackl implements the two-tone palette in Maple and porcelain for his series of Cut & Paste cutting boards. I think they’re a bit small for serious kitchen use, but are just perfect for the dining table. The medium size measures 11 x 5.7, and the large is 17 x 8.5.

If you love your lemons, feast your eyes upon this citrus squeezer by Roland Kreiter. The innovative torpedo shape allows both sides to be utilized at once, making short work of enough juice for lemonade or your favorite cocktail.
Also, if you’re interested, Mark Tintner won the pure creativity competition to make a viral film based on the mysqueeze. See it on Vimeo.

I can picture this quite clearly upon my kitchen windowsill.
“Scandinavian in its simple, unadorned and practical design, this ceramic pot is an ingenious way of enjoying fresh herbs much like flowers: Insert a bunch in the enlarged opening, and keep hydrated by pouring water into the corner hole. The broad base ensures that all those little stalks have access to water, while allowing air to circulate so herbs keep from becoming limp and waterlogged. Easy to take apart for cleaning.”

Yeah, soap dishes are boooring in a major way, usually way too boring to even bother with. But, if you’re one that always finds bars of soap disgusting because of the ‘watery mess’, take note of this dish/brush. Yes, it’s soap dish and a brush in one. The brush is a silicone tray with pitched bristles, so after you scrub up, turn it over and there’s a tidy nook for soap so that it stays put. Details make a difference.

There are few things that genuinely delight and surprise me (being desensitized as I am to the many things I sort through each and every day), but funny enough, this oven mitt caught my attention in the best of ways. Whether you get it for yourself or just keep it in mind for a friend’s future housewarming gift, it’s sure to bring a smile and/or chuckle at each use.
Keep in mind that the image above is of one single Oven Mitt; it says ‘Love’ on the right hand side, ‘Hate’ on the reverse left hand side.

So, you’re all for the idea of composting, but the smell and occasional fruit flies annoy the hell out of you. What do you do? You get this freezer bin, that’s what. Designed by Fuccillo Studio, this silicone bin allows you to store your scraps in the freezer* and ‘pop’ them out at the compost heap.

This and the High & Dry Dishrack can compete for the ‘coolest dishdrainer/rack’ title, though this one might lose since it’s a little higher price wise. It looks like the US Alessi shop is out of stock, but you can sign up to be notified when it’s back in.
