Juice All At Once

Takeya Flash Chill 66-Ounce Lemonade Maker Set

There is never enough freshly-squeezed juice. Whether it be orange, lemon or some other citrus liquid deliciousness, the sad fact is that there never seems to be enough to go around. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Krups Citrus Press Brings Freshly-Squeezed Home

Krups Citrus Press

Few things hit the spot quite like a glass of freshly-squeezed juice. Healthy and nutritious, every sip refreshes in a way that does not compare to the stuff that comes out of a carton. Yet, convenience wins, and more often than not if juice is to be had, it will be poured from a half-gallon container. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Offering the convenience of countertop accessibility, the Krups Citrus Press provides easy access to freshly-squeezed juice. Featuring a pour spout and a motorized lever, all that stands in the way of having fresh juice is a press of the lever. That and some limes, lemons, oranges or grapefruit to squeeze too, of course.

Introducing FOMZ, Zero Gravity Fruit In A Can

FOMZ, Zero Gravity Fruit in a Can

There are never-ending options when it comes to mixers. This is a good thing, as a little squirt of this or a dash of that can change the entire complexion of an alcoholic beverage. Usually however, those mixers don’t come in foam form. Enter FOMZ, a new foamy alternative to traditional mixers. The innovative edible contains no alcohol on its own, so it can also be used for virgin beverages. Using nitrous oxide as a propellant, the foamy goodness comes out of the can similar to how a whipped cream canister operates. Just point and squeeze.

Press release and in-action video after the jump.

Bird Juicer Flies In The Face Of Convention

Dr. Bird Juicer from imm Living

Juicers tend to be underappreciated. Sure, they supply us with the means to produce freshly squeezed juice from oranges and other ingredients, but they rarely get a second thought. Considering that the juice reamer is almost always the same half-sphere design with ridged edges and it’s not too surprising. Change the shape of the business end of the juicer and suddenly it gets noticed.

The Dr. Bird Juicer from imm Living does just that. With a hummingbird design, the 3-inch tall juicer stands out amongst other juicers. Utilizing the beak and ruffled feathers of the bird to facilitate juicing, the juicer offers a fresh and fun design that is useful too. Designed by Lesley Look Hong, the fun little kitchen gadget would make a nice gift for anybody—even the person who has everything.

Considering the name and uh, styling, of this kitchen appliance, I’m not sure if this is designed with men or women in mind, but either way the strong and powerful machine happens to be versatile too.
