What everyone needs in their life is a nice looking apple corer. I'm tired of using my pairing knife to try and get that core out, and I'm really tired of how it feels after a nice coring cut to the thumb. The Eva Solo Apple Corer is as perfect for the hand as it is appealing to the eye. The knives are designed to be simple, effective and aesthetic and are both functional in the kitchen as well as on the table. The Apple corer removes the core in a single turning movement. It's stainless steel blade forms a whole with the shaft which makes the knife more robust.

Amazon is having a new promotion in Kithchen & Housewares for the month of July. Simply spend $99 or more in our Kitchen & Housewares or Bed & Bath Stores between July 1 and July 31, 2005, and they will e-mail you a promotional certificate for $20 between September 11 and September 25, 2005. This offer applies only to single orders of $99 or more consisting of products offered by Amazon.com.
So you could total up quite a set of gadgets for $99 and then get $20 back! Like Cuisinart CEC-7 Egg Cooker and Poacher, the Totally Bamboo Kauai Cutting Board, the Weber Style Professional-Grade Barbecue Beeper Digital Thermometer, and the Komachi Series 8-Inch Bread Knife. This would total just over $99 and make your kitchen cooler as well as better equipped with kitchen gadgets.

You need tiles in your kitchen that make the air smell better. How many times has a nice piece of fish produced a two day stint of that "fish smell" that won't go away? The tiles from Gambarelli remove nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide from the air around them and help to keep the air smelling fresh. Though the tiles were originally designed for outside use, they will work in the kitchen or bathroom environment and should keep things smelling a tad bit better.

I love little set of tableware that just look and feel as if they are from another planet and another time. The Gorgies family of tableware was designed by London-based Wing Hang Yip. It's got the usual salt and pepper shakers, toothpick holder, and the oil and vingar bottles. The most unique thing - each piece of table ware has a name: Sal, Pep, Cig, (ashtray), Ole, Vin, and Musta(mustard bowl - we don't use these much in the US).

We are into all things efficient, and the folks at MetaEfficient have found yet another efficient means of cooking. Soaptone is an excellent material for cooking, as it can withstand temperatures twice as high as other metal cookware and also has a natural non-stick surface.

Okay - I'm a total sucker. But it looks like Amazon.com also has a Wedding Registry available. I am an big fan of Amazon, and I'm pretty sure this thing has to be rock solid user experience wise or they wouldn't even do it. Has anyone used their online registry? Now all I want is to get married again for some fresh kitchen gadgets a la wedding gift style. :-)
