No Runs, No Drips, No Tea Bags

The Friendly Swede's Silicone Tea Infuser

There you are staring right into the deep, dark abyss — of a wonderful cup of tea. But all is not rosy: in your hand there is a dripping tea ball, running hot tea down your arm. No, this is not what tea should be.

There is a (colorful) solution.

The Friendly Swede Silicone Tea Infusers are little tea-brewing accessories that bring a drip tray along for the ride. Each fun, alien-looking tea infuser has its very own drip tray incorporated into the design. Comprised of stainless steel and silicone, the infusers feature easy-to-grab handles that make it easy to transfer the device right onto the drip tray when the loose-leaf brew is ready.

Four to a set, the pink, green, red and orange tea infusers offer a bright alternative to the dark mystery of just where the heck to set down dripping wet tea leaves.

Ice Cube Tray With Storage Container Bin

Ice Cube Tray With Storage Container Bin by MTR INC

Storage fanatics rejoice!

The space underneath the ice cube tray can finally be put to some good use. It may not amount to much (or really anything), but those that appreciate nice clean lines outside their freezer as well as on the inside can finally relax.

The Ice Cube Tray With Storage Container Bin by MTR INC takes a no-nonsense approach to maximum space utilization by incorporating a storage container directly underneath the ice tray.

Of course, using this freezer contraption might lead one to think about how to maximize storage space inside the container. Good thing then, that there is nothing that says one cannot fill up the bin to make one giant ice cube with funny dimples on top. But then what to put in all of those dimples?

Set of 2 Deviled Egg Trays w/ Snap On Lids - Holds 36 Eggs

Some foods practically require being served in specialty serving devices: little indented snail plates for escargot (preferably in a spiral snail design), jars for pizza in a jar (eww?) and of course, funny-looking dimpled plates for deviled eggs.

Not only do the Chef Buddy Deviled Egg Trays with Snap On Lids satisfy the requirement for a dimpled surface, they also provide latching lids, so those little devils can be properly served wherever you happen to go.

Serving On A Cool Tray

Cool Tray

Serving chilled food on a hot tray isn’t the best way to keep the party going. Unless of course, it’s an eat-as-fast-as-you-can party. But for the rest of us, when it’s time to slow down and chill with some chilled food the Cool Tray can come in handy. The serving platter comes with an inner compartment meant to be filled with water. Pop it in the freezer and keep the snacks and spread cool without diluting the fun.

Lemon Lime Ice Turns Every Drink Into Lemonade

Lemon/Lime Ice Cube Trays - Set of 2

Ice is nice and all, but if you really want to make a splash add some flavor to that frozen water. The Lemon/Lime Ice Cube Trays come in a set of two and are specifically-designed to turn regular lemon and lime slices into flavor-bursting ice cubes. Just place the citrus slices into the trays and fill with water. The ice freezes around the lemon and lime wedges, creating a fun and easy way to add flavor to cool summer beverages–even lemonade. Or perhaps, especially lemonade, considering every drink will pack that refreshing pucker-punch.
