Bari Cheese Grater

Spending close to $200 on a cheese grater may sound ridiculous, but then you’ve never seen how serious I am about cheese. This Bari Cheese Grater combines a grater with a serving dish; this cuts down on dishes needed, of course, but it also elevates your fresh parmesan into a proper experience. A glass lid keeps grated cheese fresh- that’s no small thing if you’re serious about your cheddar (haha).

Kinto Brewer Stand Set

Another brewing stand for coffee? I know, I’m getting a little tired of seeing them everywhere too, but they’re just so darn appealing. Kinto’s Brewer Stand set includes a heat-resistant glass holder, server, and brewer along with a stainless steel (with tin coating) filter and walnut stand. Would it be crazy to use it as a vase when not brewing coffee? Hmm.

Collet Corkscrew

Yes, this does look like a tool for a spaceship, but it’s even better (because you don’t have a spaceship). It’s a bottle opener that conceals a corkscrew. That’s right, two tools in one, shiny, solid bar of brass that’ll look just fine left out on the counter or tabletop, if you so desire. It may be a good gift for someone special, so bookmark it for the future.

Serax Lovatt Coffee Cups

Don’t these Serax Lovatt cups look like they’d be nice to hold? A complete set of the black and white glazed ceramics wouldn’t do any harm left out on an open shelf for all to see, so there’s at least a couple of reasons to consider adding a few cups (and maybe the teapot) to your collection.

Fluted Talise Carafe

Water is a necessity, but nowadays too many of us rely on plastic bottles to get our daily intake. Perhaps by purchasing this very nice Talise carafe, you’ll cut down the amount of plastic you use and thus become a more responsible adult. Unending supplies of water and other beverages may be kept in its lovely fluted design, which looks so much more appropriate on a dinner (or conference) table than a six pack of plastic bottles. Use the inner funnel to hold a water filter, if needed, or remove entirely for non-filtered beverages.

Hay Jug with Handle

You know you’re going to need some very cold beverages this summer, so make sure you have a decent jug, preferably one that makes you happy every single time you fill it up. The Hay Jug with Handle might just do that, as it has a friendly, amorphic body and a beefy handle for a firm grip. The color versions are certainly tempting, aren’t they?

Lempi Glasses

Sometimes those cheap plastic cups just won’t cut it at the dinner table. Upgrade to the Lempi (means ‘favourite’ in Finnish) Glassware from Iittala. Use them for everyday water or for that special occasion wine; they’ll fit every occasion. And, as a major bonus, the Lempi is stackable to save space in your kitchen. If you’d rather a bit of color, check out the lilac, light blue, and grey.

Koki Ice Cream Scoop

I scream, you scream, we all scream for… you know the rest. Make sure you have a decent scoop for your ice cream, because you don’t want it to melt while you wrestle your serving (plus others) out of the box or tub. The Koki’s handle is comfortable to hold and has a length suitable for all types of containers. It’s perfect for soft and creamy ice creams (homemade is best!).

Verterra Compostable Dinnerware

At your next summer soirée, upgrade the dinnerware from the humble paper plate to compostable dinnerware made from fallen leaves. What, you say? Yep, spend a bit more and have a sturdier surface for food (no collapsing, no mess), and know you can toss it all in the compost when the party’s over. Sounds good, right?

Slow Brew Iced Tea Maker

Slow brewed tea sounds slightly pretentious, I know, but this little guy makes it look super easy and worth a try. After all, summer is almost here, right? Apparently cold-brewed tea is less bitter and astringent, just like cold-brewed coffee. A double-walled, clear infuser lets you keep an eye on the color while also keeping the tea’s temperature stable. You can even try cold-brewing coffee in it, as the retailer notes.

Tea Kettle By NORM Architects

This tea kettle/pot by NORM Architects has a built in steeper that is secured to the top lid when brewing is finished, making the process tidy and efficient. Plus, as the teapot is glass, you can see the brewing process and stop it once the shade is exactly to your liking- especially useful for those of us that are particular about tea. Pair it with the tealight heater to keep the tea warm.
