GIFTS FOR the KITCHEN
A hotdog cutter. Just ... why?
Why would anyone cut up a hotdog in the first place? The little round pieces would roll out of the bun. Plus they would be a choking hazard for small children.
If this one is too plain, there is another one shaped like a dachshund with a cup for catsup dipping on the end of it.
Next we have a cutting board handmade from USA grown maple and designed so you can "safely use your phone or tablet while making meals" without spilling on it.
This deluxe model is also reversible.
Now here is one good idea, a popcorn bowl that seperates out the unpopped kernels (known as Old Maids in the Dark Ages when I was a kid but we're probably not allowed to say that anymore).
If only we had had one of these this summer when I broke the corner off a tooth eating popcorn. I could have saved a lot of money. $30 for the vs $1000 to have the tooth capped.
Here we have an "ooma bowl," a double serving bowl. Folks, it's ergonomically designed! Because, you know, of all that repetitive motion of passing the bowl around the table and moving hand to mouth repeatedly for a bite.
According to the ad, "when held in one hand [it] keeps your wrist in a comfortable, neutral position".
Or you could just set your plate on the table.
A sponge keeper keeps your "good sponge" and your "evil sponge" from getting mixed up or commingling germs. I was relieved to see that the good sponge, which I assume is for wiping countertops and such, is stored above the evil sponge,which in our household is used for wiping up dog messes and spills from the floor. Come to think of it, I still think they are too close together for comfort.
