BluApple Makes Fruit Last Longer and Stay Fresh


We've been using the BluApple over the past week and as you can see above - our bananas with blue apple are much fresher and less ripe than the banana left out in the cold. Why? Well ethylene gas is given off naturally by fruits and vegetables as a signaling mechanism in order to coordinate uniform ripening, and this causes quick ripening and spoilage too soon.

You can use it in your fruit bowl or even your fruit storage drawer. Results for us in both locations resulted in well - fruit lasting longer and less spoilage. Thanks again to BluApple for sending, and after these run out in about 3-4 months we'll be getting another set to keep our fruit lasting longer and that way less of it ends up in the compost bin because we didn't get time to eat it.

Han Solo in Carbonite Silicon Tray Ice Cube Maker


This is one of our favorite scenes in the Empire Strikes back, and we can see a carbonite manhattan in our future for sure. Each flexible tray has six small chambers and one big one to make ice cubes or even fill with chocolate and make mini Han treats. The mold is made out of silicone and they recommend hand washing the Han Solo in Carbonite Silicon Tray, and we think that's worth the trade off when we see Han in our beverage and sweet tooth future.

Chef’n Strawberry Huller


William Sonoma's KitchenTECH feature is on this amazing strawberry huller from Chef'n. We eat a lot of strawberries, and taking the work out of getting the steams out, and also getting a little more berry in every bit seems like a great idea. We've never used a huller before, but this article shows us how to use one and not cut the tops off of our favorite berries.

How does it work? We'll it's pretty simple - basically there's a claw that extends into the strawberry top and pulls out the top while you twist it.

Pushing down on the green button extends a “claw.” You push the claw into the strawberry top, release the button slightly to allow the claw to grab on, and twist while you are pulling out. The claw extracts the stem, leaves and hull, leaving you with the perfect berry.

Chocolate and Multi Use Mill


This Chocolate / Multi Use Mill can be used on chocolate morsels or chunks to create decorative shavings, along with being used for nuts, garlic, and anything else you need to grind. Cost is just $35 bucks, and the mill is also compact at just 4 1/2 inches tall. Note this is not a grinder - it's a mill so you will get shavings instead of bits - which for chocolate and others is much better to have larger thin pieces to make it hit the palette in a bigger way.

Atlas Brass Pepper Mill


This pepper mill looks like it comes from the Stargate Steam Punk universe, or even Leonardo Da Vinci's workshop. It's hand made to exacting standards, and the grinding mechanism is designed to grind the pepper maximizing the flavor and aroma. It has a flanged base for stability, and is perhaps one of the coolest looking pepper mills we've seen in a long time.

8 Must Have Healthy Kitchen Gadgets Help You Lose Weight


The The Times of India has a pretty extensive article on 8 kitchen gadgets which will help you lose weight? How? Well they claim an oil mister, apple divider, herb mill, grater or zester, handheld chopper, and kitchen scissors will do the trick. We have to agree.

By being in touch with your food and portion control you can easily shave off calories, and also make your food taste better and be prepared with less oil. A grater or zester will help prepare a meal not topped with heavy toppings but a nice citrus topper with zero calories. The herb mill is a great way to add kick to food with no calories, and the apple divider will prepare you quick snacks that are not large.

The big takeaway for us is just getting some tools to help you make a healthy meal. Another great option is to add a kitchen scale to help with portion control, and we're surprised they did not add that to the mix. Another great item to add - a water pitcher. Drinking more water fills you up and fresh pure water makes you feel great. We hope these tips get your spring kicked off and weight loss or maintenance is in your future.
