Teforia Leaf Infuser

Making tea isn’t as simple as dropping a bag into hot water, and the Teforia Leaf Infuser knows that. This high-tech countertop device instead plays on variations in temperature, steep time, aeration, agitation, and more, to brew a cup of tea like you’ve never had. The Leaf reads your Teforia tea package to know just what techniques and settings to use. When necessary, it’ll perform several microinfusions — that’s…

Rost Coffee Roaster

Variety, as they say, is the spice of life. While the Rost Coffee Roaster can’t handle bulk amounts of coffee beans (much like these coffee makers) at once it excels at roasting many small, 100 gram sample batches to try out different roasts. It works by first choosing a profile from a predetermined list of auto settings (that account for ambient temperates and the like) — or just setting it…

It’s made of heavy duty 12 gauge steel, runs on charcoal or wood, and flips open to reveal an 84 square inch cooking surface — enough for a couple of burgers at a time, half a…

Anova Nano Sous-Vide Circulator

Anova’s original circulator brought sous-vide cooking to many homes. Their new Nano Sous-Vide Circulator will bring this method to even more. The compact device weighs (and costs) a fraction of most circulators, clamping onto the side of a pot and heating the water inside to within a tenth of a degree of the temperature to which it’s set. You can set it manually on its display, but it really shines when used in conjunction with Anova’s…

Beyond Zero Liquor Ice Maker

Depending on who you ask, a touch of dilution can, very occasionally, serve certain spirits well. For all other drinks (and tastes) there’s the Beyond Zero Liquor Ice Maker, which literally puts liquor in the rocks. The freezer gets cold enough to freeze wine, cocktails, or even high-proof spirits like whisky and vodka, and makes ice in just a few minutes, with an optional freezer to store ice for later at temperatures a traditional freezer can’t…

Ironate Stovetop Pizza Cooker

Nothing compares to crispy pizza fresh from a genuine pizza oven, but anyone without the room or cash to drop on one can opt for the next best thing: the Ironate Stovetop Pizza Cooker. Load one with a pizza — frozen or fresh — and pop it on any type of stovetop, or even a grill or campfire. Its high carbon steel construction soaks up heat and disperses it into the pizza, with a…

Discommon Lowball 2 Tumbler

Maybe you’re accustomed to Discommon’s radical and overbuilt designs, or maybe not. Either way the Discommon Lowball 2 Tumbler stands out from lowly glass vessels in its extravagance. The cup is milled from aerospace grade aluminum, textured, almost organically, for added comfort while cradled in hand, and finished with an inert coating in matte black that won’t contaminate your liquor with unwanted taste. Inside, it mirrors the traditional whisky snifter with a complex…

Stratus Decant Cabernet Franc

Wine bottle design is quite conservative to say the least. Stratus’ Decant Cabernet Franc comes in a bottle that’s instead seemingly deconstructed, or chopped up, by industrial designer Karim Rashid to create a unique looking form that also traps sediment during pouring — practical, considering Stratus’ first ever unfiltered wine inside. The wine’s sedimented nature also results in rich flavors that boast hints of raspberry jam, oak, anise, and cardamom, all of…

Millo Smoothie Maker

Dubbed a smart blender, the Millo Smoothie Maker promises to be the best designed blender you’ve ever laid eyes on. The small blender’s Air Drive system employs magnets to power the blade, eliminating three quarters of the noise of traditional blenders (and one of their biggest annoyances). Moreover the blending chamber and the cap that seals it — which also contains the blade — screw together and aren’t physically attached…

OtterBox Venture Cooler

If the OtterBox Venture Cooler looks vaguely familiar, that’s because it’s styled rather similarly to the brand’s primary product line: rugged smartphone cases. Turns out their “protecting iPhones” know-how translated well to the design of a durable cooler that can hold ice not for two days but rather two weeks and can literally keep out bears. Available in three sizes — Venture 25, 45, and 65, with numbers certifying quarts…

Stash Inflatable Coolers

Our main gripe with rigid-walled coolers is that they’re as big empty as they are full. Which also means they take up way more room to store. West Marine-exclusive Stash Inflatable Coolers, on the other hand, offer the main benefits associated with hard-walled coolers — like ample storage space, drain plugs, and handles on either side to make it easier for two to carry — while also squeezing down…

JAG Grills

More than just a grate with fire under it, the JAG is a grill, fire pit and table all in one. When used as a grill, JAG’s octagonal shape lets eight simultaneously cook whatever they please on their own individual grill, arranged around a center fire grate. Just like a conventional grill, the grates are removable for easy cleaning. And when you’re finished eating, everyone can relax around the central fire…

Bison Rolling Grill

Portable grills don’t offer much space to cook, and big grills are, well, big, and annoyingly bulky to move around. The Bison Rolling Grill tries to find a solid middle ground, packing down tiny while also offering 116 square inches of cooking surface. It works thanks to a unique chain-like surface that unrolls and that’s stabilized by two grill guards and four stake stands that optionally plant firmly into the…

Cosmik Freeze-Dried Ice Cream

Freeze-dried ice cream as you know it is not the most appetizing snack, probably because it’s made of some rather cheap, low-quality ice cream. Cosmik Freeze-Dried Ice Cream is astronaut-worthy ice cream that’s just as convenient and portable but far more delicious considering it’s made of super-premium Brooklyn-made organic ice cream that’s freeze-dried for a day. The result tastes as good or better than when it was originally frozen, in…

Trees Knees Coffee Maple Syrup

Coffee is a morning drink. Maple syrup is a morning… condiment topping syrup. In a moment of epiphany Bushwick Kitchen combined the two in Trees Knees Coffee Maple Syrup. Each 13.5 oz bottle contains organic Grade A maple syrup from the Catskill Mountains that’s infused with Stumptown Coffee Roasters’ Hair Bender Blend, imbuing it with notes of toffee, fudge, and dark chocolate. Perfect for enjoying some waffles/flapjacks, as an ice…

These Green Apple-flavored gummies are just under two inches tall — roughly the same height as the toys — and position the men in four…

It’s not the first remedy that promises to cure your hangover, nor will it be the last. But The Hangover Drink is actually pretty convincing, in a preliminary, potential sort of way (hit up PubMed for a successful study of injectable dihydromyricetin on drunk rats) that may be worth a shot if you absolutely need to be productive after a night of bingeing. Each compact 100ml glass bottle packs a…
