Spoon Meets Sifter: The Spifter

The Spifter by 4 STIR, Inc. The spoon that is a sifter.

A sifter is an important kitchen tool to have hanging around. However, they usually don’t do too well for the smaller jobs; they are just too bulky. Even fine mesh strainers are too big when it comes to dong fine detail. That’s where The Spifter comes in. Perfectly sized for sifting sugar, herbs and spices, the little kitchen gadget even comes with three interchangeable screens. Pretty neat idea, actually. Good job, Spifter people!

Eww… Mustache Mold

Mustache Silicone Baking Mold

No, not that kind of mold, but the kind you use to make things into shapes. But still… eww. If, for whatever reason, you have felt like eating a mustache, the
Mustache Silicone Baking Mold will help you achieve that goal. Fill it with cake batter, gelatin, cheese, or whatever and the result will be a mustache-shaped foodstuff that the mustachioed and non-mustachioed alike will not be able to resist. Maybe. In any event, delicious or not, whatever you make it won’t last as long as a mustache finger tattoo, but that’s probably a good thing.

A Healthy Donut?

Wilton Nonstick 6-Cavity Donut Pan

It is pretty difficult to avoid the occasional donut. They show up at every meeting, function, and hole-in-the-wall shop. Donuts are delicious. And not very healthy. One way to avoid inevitable donut disasters is to make your own. In the oven. The Wilton Nonstick 6-Cavity Donut Pan is specially designed to keep your donut cravings out of the deep-fryer and into the oven. And of course, if you are amongst the brave, perhaps they could even be made without frosting or icing. Well, it could happen, right?
