Squeeze In Orange Squeezer

We could play the whole ‘what-is-it’ game, but you probably possess enough deductive reasoning to guess the function of at least the top part of this set. That’s right, it’s an orange squeezer. Don’t go thinking it’s palm-sized, though, it’s approximately 9″ tall, so it will handle all manner of freakishly large citrus. The dark oak wood juicer sits snugly into the ceramic vase when not in use. Bonus: it’s on sale (reg.$89).

Chops Cutting Boards and Knife Rack

Knives and cutting boards: two things that work together in the kitchen yet are often pulled from different spots. Chops combines the two, with a metal knife rack that holds two cutting boards upright for storage. Take off one board (or both) and you’ll see the simple black frame of the knife rack. After prep and cleaning, reset the boards on either side, and you have what appears to be just a slender wooden knife rack. Pretty handy.

Life is Fantastic Tea Towel X David Shrigley

Isn’t it though? This tea towel features an image by Scottish artist David Shrigley, and will perhaps remind you to appreciate where you are in life every time you dry your hands or dishes. Or, hey, you could even frame the thing as art, if you so desire. And, if you’re not thinking your life is particularly fantastic, maybe now is a good time to assess what would make it so, considering the new year is just around the corner.

Stelton RigTig Easy Kitchenware

Spatulas, sticks, tongs, and spoons- do you have everything you need for your Thanksgiving feast? The ‘Easy’ collection for Rig-Tig by Stelton hits the right spot for minimalist kitchenware. You’d best figure in rush shipping for any online orders, though, as you you’re cutting it awfully close for cut-off dates (we don’t want you to have to serve your sweet potatoes with your hands, now, do we?).

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.

Waka Waka Cutting Boards

I know just what you need: a couple of odd-shaped cutting boards. Right? They’ll be just the thing to add a little interest to your charcuterie and cheese spread, and they won’t hurt your wallet either. Choose between boards shaped like thought bubbles and baguettes, or a triangle and mirror-shape. Plus, just say ‘Waka Waka’ outloud- it’s Fozzie Bear!

Normann Copenhagen Squeezer

Oh, what to do when you love juice from all sorts of fruit? Well, you could have multiple squeezers in different sizes, or you could have just one of Normann Copenhagen’s Squeezer. Adjust the sides to fit large grapefruits or tiny limes, and use the flexible funnel as a pouring spout when you’re done squeezing. Soft, matte silicone makes the Squeezer easy to grip and easy to clean- just throw it in the dishwasher.

Cantilever Cooking Utensils

Don’t your eyes just settle over these two Cantilever Cooking Utensils like a new glimpse of tasteful porn? Just kidding… sort of. I know, I know, a floating spatula isn’t as exciting as two attractive humans doing stuff or even a cinematic smartcase for your iPhone, but it should be. What are you going to do, go about your kitchen cooking a wonderful meal, only to set down your spatula or spoon on the counter and get sauce all over your counter? Gross, and probably a little unhygienic.

Terracotta Funnel by Grain

Why do you need a Terracotta Funnel? Beats me, but I know I’d use it for moving my matcha latte from a mixing bowl into a coffee cup, similar to the one shown above. Maybe you’d use it for funneling other drinks into other cups, or soups into fancy, small containers, but any way you use it, know that you’re using a natural, sustainably made, and foodsafe tool.

Pots by Benjamin Huberts

You won’t find these at your local kitchen supply store. These terracotta pots by Benjamin Hubert are glazed internally and have silicone lids for a tight seal, which make them perfect for storing dry goods- pasta, cereal, etc.- in the kitchen. No sacrificing design style here, as each piece could easily double as a vase (or group them together for a bigger centerpiece). Plus, they’re on sale (!).

Grid Planks by Daphna Laurens

The lines on the Grid Planks by Daphna Laurens would certainly tempt you to arrange food precisely along the perfectly ordered grid, for at least the first few moments of food prep anyways. After that, your sanity might be questioned. Consider the smooth side for cutting, and keep the grid side pristine for serving.

Easy To Strain Bowl by Ryann Aoukar

You do rinse your fruits and vegetables, don’t you? There’s no telling who sneezed on it, after all, and there’s always a chance that some creepy crawly bug has hitched a ride, unbeknownst to us all. But it wastes so much water, you say. I know, I know.

The Easy To Strain Bowl by Ryann Aoukar will help with that, as it has a spout/handle that makes draining easy- into a cup or plant or wherever. Also, if you’re a pasta lover, you’ve got to see the possibilities of draining the pasta on the counter, away from the bottom of the sink (germs!). Plus, if you’re lazy, you could just eat directly out of the bowl, as it’s perfectly acceptable for use at the dinner table while watching your favorite shows on the sofa.
