Cork Cutting Boards

Here’s a slight summer sale on some cork cutting boards. As you probably already know, cork is a renewable resource, so it’s a smart and friendly sort of material to use for all sorts of things.

We love these cork cutting boards for chopping and as presentation platters. Made from durable, high-density cork, the surface is resistant to wear. Cork is slip-resistant and lightweight, and it cushions knife blades and keeps them sharp.

Small: 8.5″ long x 6″ wide, $12.00 $9.60
Medium: 12″ long x 8″ wide, $22.00 $19.60
Large: 14″ long x 10″ wide, $28.00 $25.60

Compact Herb Chopper

Simplify your herb preparation with this handy little chopper that stores the blade when not in use.

Clever, compact design in a handy package. That’s the simple premise for this herb chopper by UK’s critically acclaimed Joseph Joseph. The soft-handled, double-bladed cutter slides from the non-slip chopping base. Effortlessly and neatly, dice nuts, chocolate, herbs or garlic cloves. Then sweep them right off the base and into the mix. Wipe clean and safely store the blade back into the compartment.

Size: 6.9″ dia x 1.6″ t

Inandout Silicone Trivet

Two sizes in one plus a handful of fun colors to choose from…

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.

Colors: Blue, Gray, Olive, Raspberry

Ovopur’s Ceramic Water Filter

Uh, I might care about my water quality, but I think the price tag of this filter might be more at home in an office setting than my kitchen. That said, it looks pretty darn good for an updated (and improved) water cooler/filter.

Up to 11 liters of tap water is filtered and revitalized with the reusable, multilayer Aquacristal filter cartridge, which removes chemicals and organic pollutants. Water starts with an Activated Carbon layer, neutralizing taste and smell, it absorbs 99% of pharmaceutical residues, phenols, and other nasty elements. Next is the at a layer of KD455, a powder of copper alloy and ultra pure zinc to neutralize 99% of the chlorine, lead and other heavy metals, while fighting buildup of bacteria, algae. Through the third layer water passes through Quartz Crystal, an energy amplifier and conductor that is used to remove any lingering impurities. Lastly, the Microporous Bioceramics absorbs any remaining chemical and organic residues, while active MBs soften and revitalize water by reducing molecules—which ensures maximum hydration for the end user, helps stimulate blood circulation and detox while preventing oxidation. The Results? Delicious! And the ceramic vessel looks irresistible, too.

Holds up to 3 gallons of purified water.

Compact Dish Rack and Sink Mat

If you’re short on counter space, you certainly don’t want your dish rack to be huge. This 7″x4″ dishrack will do the job in half the space of a regular sized one. If that’s still pushing it too far, maybe go with a sink mat instead.

‘Patience’ and ‘Fortitude’ Sponges

I bet many of you can identify with Mr. Seifer and his feelings on dishwashing.

I need patience and fortitude to do my dishes.
Here in New York City I don’t have a dishwasher and my sink is really small.
Sponges arrive flat and expand in water. This is very entertaining to watch. Great for parties. You will receive two identical sponges. They read “patience” on one side and “fortitude” on the other.
Made in USA. -Reed Seifer
