Hide those unsightly upside-down ketchup bottles

Bottoms Up Ketchup Bottle Holder

All those upside down bottles in your fridge may be fine when they’re out of sight, but when it’s time to take ‘em to the table, you should really clean up your act. No matter how good a spread you got going on, presentation does still count. Oh, if only there was a way to keep mostly-used ketchup bottles at the table without having to look at them.

Oh wait, there is.

The Kitchenart Bottoms-Up Bottle Holder may seem to be nothing more than a cheap plastic kitchen gadget designed to separate you from your money, but you have to look further than that. Place this on the dining room table and your tablescape will immediately be transformed from gauche to gosh. As a bonus, if you need a conversation starter, your guests will surely be asking what the heck that broken plastic thing is for.

Barbecue Spatula Tongs for easy grilling

Barbecue Spatula Tongs

Just like it can be easy to overload on the condiments while grilling in the backyard, the tools to cook delicious steaks and burgers can sometimes just get in the way. For quick and easy grilling sometimes all you need is one tool — especially if that one tool does it all.

Williams-Sonoma combines two must-have grill accessories into one convenient tool with the Barbecue Spatula Tongs. With one end of the tool resembling a spatula, and the opposite end armed with an easy-grasping tong, the combination tool makes flipping even the most delicate foods a breeze. Just be sure that now you that you have a free hand, you occasionally set down the ketchup.

UPDATE 6/30/12: It looks like Williams-Sonoma no longer has this item, but here is the very similar (and well-reviewed) GrillPro 40240 16-Inch Stainless Steel Tong/Turner Combination.
