Flour Sack Towels

One can never have too many tea towels. Just in case you need convincing, these old school Flour Sack Towels are $24 for a set of 4, which will replenish your drawer without breaking the bank. Flour sacks were often remade into tea towels, pillows and clothing many decades ago, and this set has that same sort of thrifty feel.

Over at design/story there’s a few Studiopatró Tea Towels that caught my eye- that’s not surprising as they’re handpicked by Remodelista blogger Julie Carlson. You can also buy directly from Studiopatró if you so wish.

SpiceCare Modular Spice Storage

This looks to be a smart storage option for spices. Each container is stackable, as you can see, but they also interlock so you can group together regularly used spices on the shelves or in a drawer. A stainless steel insert allows for labeling and there’s also shaker screen inserts should you need them. See video below for more info.

Feeling a bit prickly? Maybe this Cacti tea towel will cheer you up. Designed by Topher Sinkinson from design studio makelike, this tea towel is hand screen-printed using water-based inks. The Succulent Sketch Tea Towel is worth a look.

Sleek Spoon for Jars

What’s the big deal about a blue spoon, you ask. Sometimes the tiniest tools make our lives a little easier, and that is just the case for this spoon designed by the Castiglioni brothers. It’s intended to retrieve the very last bits at the bottom of the jar, and, for anyone particular about using up the last teaspoon of mayonnaise, jam, or spread, it’ll most certainly be appreciated. Originally designed in 1962 and reissued by Alessi in 1997.

Link by Studio Dreimann

So smart! This little silicone thingy transforms your cutlery into a a pair of tongs or salad servers. It can also act as training wheels for chopsticks, but that would look pretty silly in a restaurant so only do that at home.

Norm Architects Cookware Set

This 9 piece stackable cookware set by designers Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn is smart.

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.

DrawerDecor

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.

Blue Bell Apron

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.

Milky Way Minor Cheese Knives

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.”

Flow Measuring Cups

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.

Click ‘N Cook Spatula System

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.

VIPP Dishwashing Set

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).
