Five rad and random kitchen products I found this week
The end-of-week dispatch from PopSci's commerce editor. Vol. 46.
My job is to find cool stuff. Throughout the week I spend hours scouring the web for things that are useful or fun or ridiculously cheap. Often times, these choices coalesce into a guide of like items—for example, the ultimate guide to making cafe-style coffee in your own home or rad gifts for Mother’s Day. But I often stumble across some pretty awesome gear that doesn’t really fit into a list. So I made a list for those.
Mini donut maker
There are precious few things radder than a machine designed to bake donuts. The non-stick oven creates four donuts at a time. It stands on rubber feet to keep it from sliding and has an indicator light that tells you when the oven is heating up and when it reaches the optimal baking temperature. $15.
Microwave recipe mugs
Fred & Friends Amazon
This Fred & Friends microwave mug set comes with four porcelain coffee cups, each with a set of three mug recipes. I want to try the crispy rice treats, myself. They sound unhealthy and delicious. $11.
Microwave s’mores maker
Progressive International Amazon
This entirely necessary device creates two s’mores in about 30 seconds. Yes, you can make s’mores with chopsticks and a gas stove, but this single-use appliance keeps things tidy (and is less likely to set your apartment on fire). A built-in water reservoir in the back prevents overcooking and helps evenly cook the chocolate and marshmallow. $12.
Tricerataco taco holder
This Tricerataco is made out of a safe BPA-free, ABS plastic, and can be used to transport food items like tacos, sandwiches, and waffles. This kind of fun never goes extinct. $11.
Humphrey Egg Slicer Whale
Humpback whales are pretty intriguing—especially when the normally solitary creatures congregate for no known reason. That has nothing to do with this egg slicer; I just thought you should know that the world is ending and only the humpback whales know. Anyway, this device is dishwasher-safe. $16.
