Lego Mold Is A Good Thing–Sort Of

Building Blocks Chocolate Candy Mold - Perfect for Lego Party by CybrTrayd

This Lego mold, err, Building Blocks Chocolate Candy Mold, would make for a fun activity with the kids. It might not promote healthy eating, but at least they’ll be learning something while they’re at it. (As long as they don’t try to stack the blocks–these appear to be one-sided molds!)

PlateTopper Food Protector (And Storage)

Kickstarter project, PlateTopper, by Michael Tseng.

Nobody likes to mess around with leftovers; once dinner is done, the food needs to go away. The PlateTopper by Michael Tseng would agree. Not only would it be useful to quickly and efficiently cover a plate full of leftovers for storage, but it would also keep any pesky critters that may be in your house from stealing food off the plate when you get up to get a refill.

It’s not a reality yet, but head on over to the Kickstarter page to see how you can help it along.

Laptop Cooking: Electrolux Mobile Kitchen Concept

Electrolux Mobile Kitchen Concept

The Electrolux Design Lab is an annual competition that encourages design students to come up with concepts that may (or in this case, may not) someday see the light of day. The Electrolux Mobile Kitchen Concept is a laptop and a portable induction cooker crammed into one. It doesn’t really make any sense considering the popularity of connected tablets and phones. Not to mention most people try to keep splattered food and hot grease away from their screens. It didn’t win.

Replace Breakfast With The Toast Air Freshener

Toast Air Freshener

It’s not always easy to get out of the house properly fueled up with breakfast. But hopping in the car doesn’t have to mean driving to work not smelling of breakfast. It might not carry the scent of bacon, but the Toast Air Freshener will at least help you get on your way–without the calories, of course.

Nonstick Roasting Rack With Juice Reservoir

Nonstick Roasting Rack With Juice Reservoir

Lurking inside every roast is a bowl full of gravy. The cooking process may create pools of flavor, but collecting all those juices requires a but of effort. Lifting the heavy pan that the roast was cooking in is one way to get to the goodness, but sending the river of flavor into a pre-determined location is probably a better way to go about it. The Nonstick Roasting Rack With Juice Reservoir channels juices away from the roast, sending them directly into a waiting reservoir. Try not to drink it straight out of the cup.
