Having already been exposed to the world of Gourmet Tea via my Electric Tea Maker I really didn't have much expectation when reviewing the Teavana Perfect Teamaker. I thought this simple contraption wouldn't compare to my Electric Tea Maker to brew a perfect cup of tea. Or could it?
Upon opening the box I noticed not much in the way of parts; a Teavana Perfect Tea Maker and instructions on how to use it. The instructions are simple and concise which pretty much describes this Teamaker. No crazy setup. No extra parts to try and figure what to do with them. Just a simple Teavana Perfect Tea Maker awaiting its first 32 oz of tea.

Cut your egg up anyway you want. This egg slicer slices, wedges, halves, or dices eggs. It also has an integrated needle for piercing eggshells. If you don't like eggs, it can be used for mushrooms, strawberries or other fruit and vegetables.

I love cherry pie, but the thought of pitting all the cherries is a big deterrent. This cherry pitter may do the trick. You place the cherry in the mouth and press down.

There is a tool for every task. This is a pepper corer. The corer's serrated sides separate the core and seeds from small and medium-sized peppers. The blade has v-shaped teeth to help extract the contents.

No more guessing if the wine is chilled just right or too warm to serve. Within minutes, this band with LED display provides a read-out of the wine’s temperature’ and if it’s ready to serve to your guests. We're big fans of chilled wine, but we've never gone the distance on the right amount of chill. We also think this gadget would be good for a fridge thermometer in a pinch as well.

I like the idea of a measuring cup with a lid. This glass 8-cup measuring cup comes with a lid to easily transport liquids. The lid has 4 positions, which allows you to sift, pour, strain, or sprinkle.

We often eat a large quantity of shrimp on the Memorial Day Weekend, and this year was no exception except thanks to the Shrimp Butler - less mess. It often takes us just over an hour to peel, and devein all the shrimp our hungry stomachs require. This task was cut to about 10 minutes thanks to the Shrimp Butler.
Shrimp Butler, commonly referred to as a shrimp peeler, is an all in one shrimp butterflier and shrimp deveiner. Shuck the loose shrimp peelings under the faucet and your shrimp are ready for cooking.
It's sad - but it's really that simple. Check out the link below for a full set of demonstrations on how to use the Shrimp Butler, but it's drop dead simple and amazing. This also means we'll be eating shrimp, and grilling shrimp more often.
