Ice Cubes with Lemon Slices


The Ice-n-Slice is an ice tray allowing you to insert a citrus slice into each cube. We like the idea of inserting just about any fruit into our ice cubes so lemons, limes, and oranges seem like a no-brainer. We think a little orange flavored sparkling water will make for a nice refreshing treate. How about a nice cocktail or two served up with a frozen slice of lime? Where's my Gin?

IZ for your Kitchen


We have really been enjoying this in the Kitchen Contraptions kitchen since we purchased it about a month ago. IZ makes noise and music and other stuff but best of all keeps our 2 year hold daughter absolutely entertained during the tougher cooking moments. You can also plug in your ipod to this and play music that IZ will DJ to. The toy is very interactive and we well - love it.

IZ is the ultimate fusion of music and toy! Twist and turn iZ's ears to create new combinations of rhythm and lead tracks; press his belly to change-up the beat! iZ's eye's bounce to the rhythm and lead and his horn pulses in rainbow colors to the beat! Want to listen to your own tunes? Use the included cable to plug in our iPod or any music source to listen to iZ play your songs his way! Includes music input connection cable for use with iPod, MP3 players, CD plays, or any other music device that uses standard headset cable.

Stainless Steel Sink Soap Pump

We like the fact you can add something attractive in the soap dispensing category to your kitchen sink. Sure - I like to buy a nice dispensing bottle but I think having some stainless steel is a nice touch.

Smooth, stylish sink pump serves as a perfect complement in stainless steel kitchens. The Forma line by Interdesign combines stainless steel beauty and parallel style. Koni Sink Pump holds 16 oz. of liquid soap.

Acrylic Citrus Squeezers


The new Crate & Barrel - or CB2 has all the latest kitchen gadgets. We found these new colored acrylic citrus squeezers and can imagine replacing our rather old and nasty current squeezer.

Zesty design. Don’t let the citrus colors and generally sunny disposition fool you. This is one hard worker—extracting all the juice (without the seeds) in one smooth motion.

Olde Thompson Nutmeg Mill

Nutmeg MillWhat can we say? If you need to make nutmeg you're going to have to get some nuts and a nutmeg mill. The Olde Thompson Nutmeg mill is the perfect grinder for fresh nutmeg powder every time you need it. It's made of acrylic and chrome and the mill stands approximately 4.5" high.

Nutmeg facts: nutmeg, spice consisting of the seed of the Myristica fragrans, a tropical, dioecious evergreen tree native to the Moluccas or Spice Islands of Indonesia. Nutmeg has a characteristic, pleasant fragrance and slightly warm taste; it is used to flavour many kinds of baked goods, confections, puddings, meats, sausages, sauces, vegetables, and such beverages as eggnog. Grated nutmeg has been used as a sachet; the Romans used it as incense.

Around 1600 it became important as an expensive commercial spice of the Western world and was subject of Dutch plots to keep prices high and of English and French counterplots to obtain fertile seeds for transplantation. The nutmegs sold whole were dipped in lime to prevent their growth.

Garlic Press with Slicer


Our good friend Evelyn has found this via a visit to Williams-Sonoma and just in time for Turkey day (you'll need this for the stuffing, the skin of the bird, and of course for your garlic potatoes.) Our current garlic press - well presses. But this one slices when you put the garlic cloves in the slicer area. Perfect.

Recipes often call for fresh garlic cloves to be pressed, which yields intense flavor, or thinly sliced, which results in a more subtle garlic taste. This convenient tool allows you to accomplish either task with ease – and without getting garlicky aromas on your hands. The cast-aluminum press features two compartments: one for pressing garlic, the other for slicing cloves in eight thin, uniform sections. A nonstick coating maximizes efficiency and guarantees easy cleaning. 7 3/4" long.

These long, narrow 3"l x 3/4" dia. ice tubes slip through slim necks to keep beverages chilled for on-the-go enjoyment.
