OTOTO Design is hoping to expand on their previous success with the Loch Ness Monster Ladle with a new swan ladle.

Although they may not differ much in appearance, this new offering, dubbed “Swanky”, is specially engineered to float in an upright position, and will also stand on solid surfaces.

The Swanky is currently the focus of a Kickstarter campaign and is available in black, white or pink in exchange for a $17 contribution. Shipping is expected to begin in January.

We’ve featured the work of Jessica Clark-Bojin of Pies are Awesome in the past, and now she’s making it easy for anyone to craft spectacularly nerdy pies in minutes with Pie Guides.

Pie Guides can be described simply as templates for cutting crusts into all kinds of fun, nerdy shapes. The project launched on Kickstarter yesterday and, not surprisingly, reached its funding goal in mere hours. That means there’s still plenty of time for you get your own templates before the campaign ends.

Check out the project video below to see the Pie Guides in action. [click to continue…]


Darth Vader can whip up a soup like nobody’s business. He also makes this amazing pudding using 4 Hass avocados, 8 tablespoons of Hershey’s 100% cacao unsweetened cocoa, 8 tablespoons of maple syrup, 1 cup of almond milk and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Avocado pudding! Who knew?

At any rate, this Lightsaber Immersion Blender is his secret weapon in the kitchen. It features a 120 V/300 W motor and variable speeds for $50.

This officially-licensed Captain America: Civil War cutting board features a debossed design of Captain America’s shield on one side and Iron Man’s Arc Reactor on the other. Which side will you choose? Personally, I would cut meats on Cap (because ‘Merica) and Iron Man can handle the vegetables. [click to continue…]

Frustrated with his inability to make smoked BBQ in his cramped home, one clever Japanese man decided to create a system that directs smoke from his shichirin charcoal grill to the oven vent above his stove.

The apparatus was created using duct tape, a couple of shallow plastic buckets and some aluminum tubing, and has reportedly allowed for an authentic yakiniku dining experience without that pesky carbon monoxide poisoning.

The internet has showered the creator with compliments, although there are clearly some drawbacks like, you know, plastic around fire and whatnot. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
