Cool Finds: 5 Awesome Kitchen Products

I’ve gathered 5 well-designed kitchen products that will save you time and/or space while making your kitchen look sleek, clean, and cool!

1. Spaghetti Scrub by Goodbye Detergent!

These unique, spaghetti-like kitchen cleaning scrubs from Goodbye Detergent! are an eco-friendly alternative to cleaning and taking care of your cookware and appliances. Each uniquely shaped, pliable scrub consists of natural abrasives made from corn cobs and peach pits. There is no need for soap or cleaner since the abrasives are enough to do the trick. All it needs is moistening with water and if you would like to use soap, just a tiny amount would suffice. $6.95-$8.95 at Crate&Barrel.

2. SmartSpace Dry Food Dispenser by Zevro

These contemporary food storage solutions are perfect for maximizing space in the kitchen and the candy store-esque quality of dispensation adds an element of fun to getting the right amount of dry food you desire. A single twist of the handle gives you about an ounce each time and the dispenser is designed to keep dry foods fresh for up to forty five days. $47.00 at Yanko Design.

3. Foodpod

The Foodpod is a modern silicone cooking tool designed to save time when boiling, blanching or steaming by conveniently containing, removing and draining foods like eggs, veggies, shellfish and more in one easy-to-use vessel. Saves time and water when preparing a meal, keeps foods together for easy removal and even cooking and acts as a strainer, reserving the cooking liquid. Easily holds up to a dozen large eggs or several heads of broccoli. Built-in grip clip allows for convenient removal from water. Simply place foods in the Foodpod and put in water to cook. Lift from water, let drain. Remove and enjoy! $15.00 at A+R store.

4. Magisso Cake Server

The simple task of slicing a nice piece of cake and getting it to your plate can be quite difficult sometimes. Finnish art and design student Maria Kivijärvi came up with a solution to this small problem by designing a stainless steel cake server that makes slicing a piece of cake, well, “a piece of cake.” You no longer have to worry about the perfection of your slicing and the piece toppling over as you move it to your plate! The server cuts a uniform slice every time and the squeeze of the handle keeps the cake in the server until you release it. It’s quite pricey though at a whopping $59.95 at Urban Butik.

5. Utensil Pot Clip

Keep the spoon, spatula or ladle attached to the pot instead of making a mess on the counter or cutting board. Stainless steel clip with a heat-resistant silicone grip affixes to the side wall of any cooking vessel. I need this! $6.95 at Crate&Barrel.
