Maybe using a toothpick isn't very classy, but you can sure have a nice toothpick dispenser.

It started with silicone baking mats and now everything is silicone. I could really use this silicone rolling pin because even when I put a lot of flour on my wooden rolling pin, the dough still seems to stick. Plus it comes in fun colors like tangerine.

It's rare you come across such a perfect match for a kitchen pencil sharpener. Our current kitchen pencil sharpener resides in our "junk drawer" but we think this pencil sharpener from UncommonGoods could be right out there next to the stove it looks so good. Reminiscent of a coffee grinder, the hand polished chrome pencil sharpener and stapler is a work of art when it comes to sharpening pencils. Now we don't do much stapling in the kitchen but it's a set - what can you do? Oh we know - use the stapler in our home office!
At the end of the Spanish Civil War in 1939, a former firearms maker converted its facilities – and precise expertise – to produce desk accessories. Hand polished six times with six different granulations, then plated with chrome, these accessories are built for a lifetime of constant use and guaranteed forever. The pencil sharpener has an adjustable entry for any width tip and a handy crank device that easily locks down on a desk for stability. And the stapler is the only one in the world to staple three ways – the standard staple, tacking, which fastens papers to bulletin boards or walls, and pinning, a rare method that fastens papers securely and yet allows you to remove the staple with ease. Manufactured and hand finished in Spain.
It takes two people to design a decent storage jar these days. This cool duck egg blue storage jar is designed by Nigella Lawson with Sebastian Conran. The amphora form can be used in an upright or tilted position. A glass lid allows at-a-glance identification of contents. We're not exactly sure why it took 2 designers to pull this off - but we do really like it.

Baking habits are hard to break and using paper baking cups that stick to your muffins makes you wonder why they're so hard. These reusable baking cups are heat resistant, non-stick, and can be reused 1000 times or more (we dare you to try 1001). I would imagine these are made of silicone but it looks like they just don't say on the web site.
Also you may want to check out Design Sponge - great web site and some killer finds in the kitchen arena.

We went yesterday to a set of outlet stores in Western Massachusetts to escape the heat. Well - outlet stores aren't great to escape the heat but they are great to find new cool kitchen stuff. It seems that Silicone baking molds are getting better and better. We saw no less than dozens of cool patterns from trees, to stars, to Disney characters you could make. SiliconZone has been making professional baking molds in this style for the past few years. Each mold can withstand just about any amount of heat you could throw at it up to 675 degrees F. We don't recommend trying to get your home oven up that high, but you needn't worry about melting the mold onto your cake. We found this really cool wildflower pattern and this is just a taste of the world of Silicone baking molds. We'll be featuring many more this week.
