You can now turn up or turn down the heat for your cooking pleasure! Dave's Gourmet has released a new bottle design that allows you to mix two sauces - one mild and one uber hot to create your own sauce temperature. By turning the cap you mix the two sauces and then push the top to dispense the hot sauce.

Seal the deal. My mom had one of these when I was a kid - and you know what? It works. She still has one and is always telling me about the latest thing she's put into the freezer vacuum sealed. I'm pretty sure this is the only way to keep things fresh and not buy a ton of crazy canisters.
- Keep leftovers as fresh and delicious as the day they were prepared.
- Prepare make-ahead meals over the weekend, then store them for easy weeknight reheating.
- Buy food in bulk then freeze for later—use in meal or serving-size portions.
- Marinate meats in minutes instead of hours.
- Store delicate or moist foods with convenient canisters.
- Preserve wine, salad dressings and more with our specially designed bottle stoppers.
- Seal and store meals in serving-sized portions for simple and effective portion control.
The other thing that's changed since my Seal-a-meal youth? How about an entire Seal-a-Meal web site. It's filled with tips, different accessories, and you can even buy different models with different finishes. All of the models range in price from $50 to $100 bucks, and you can even get a cordless version to tote around the house sealing things fate one seal at a time.

I'm ready for some ice cream and especially if it has the patented Dairy Bar twist! The Black & Decker IC-200 Arctic Twister ice cream mixer creates a rainbow of dessert flavors custom made to every member of your family and every one of your friends by letting you mix into the ice cream of your choice whatever topping or flavor you want.
You don't MAKE Ice cream with this Ice Cream Mixer - you use the Arctic Twister to make custom soft-serve ice cream at home. Using the Arctic Twister is not as ambitious as making ice cream from scratch: simply buy your favorite ice cream, sherbet, or frozen yogurt and swirl in the toppings of your choice to make your own original flavor. The dispenser can handle almost any topping you can think up, from the healthy (nuts, granola, fruit, and cereal) to the decadent (sprinkles, chocolate chips, M&Ms, cookies, and candy bars).

Spice rack or space rack? The Zevro Zero Gravity Spice Rack helps you store your spices suspended in "magnetic" thin air. It's the only design we know of where you can store spices on both the top and bottom of the spice rack and help to reduce clutter.
Windows on the spice canisters keep you in touch with the contents and each spice canister has locking mechanisms that can stay put on pouring or sprinkling. You can get the spice rack in brushed chrome or a more chrome like silver finish. Sets can be purchased in 6 and 12 spice can configurations.

Everyone needs a good "honey" and everyone needs a great Honey Spoon. The Honey Spoon collects big helpings of honey in the spaces between the discs and just a slight twist stops the flow of honey ready for safe transfer onto bread, rolls, or into your cup of piping hot tea - all without losing a drop.
The Honey Spoon has a jar rest on it that provides a secure way to lay the Honey Spoon on the rim of a jar and any honey on the spoon drips back safely - preventing any "HONEY LOSS". The Honey Spoon is quick and easy to clean and it is also dishwasher safe.

Man I hate stinky hands. I really hate grabbing a piece of fish and having to deal with the smell of fish on my hands for the entire rest of my cooking experience. This very cool and very un-soap like piece of stainless steel will clean up your smelly hands every time.
This stainless steel soap-shaped bar is even better than the real thing at removing odors. Just rub the stainless steel marvel in your hands under cold water, and odors like onion, fish and garlic disappear. Even better, it never wears out, and no additional cleaning is necessary.

We probably grate more parmesan cheese per square meter in our kitchen than any other kitchen on the entire planet. I'm tired of cut up hands from our traditional grater we sit on top of a large bowl. The Pedrini Pleasure Rotary Grater, allows you to in real time - pleasure yourself with grating any cheese of your choice.
Okay the real reason the grater is a pleasure? Because the Pedrini Pleasure Rotary Grater has a large comfortable handle you hold when grating cheese. It's also a real time saver in the kitchen when it comes to grating cheeses or shredding vegetables. This rotary grater comes with three interchangeable drums. One for grating hard cheeses and vegetables such as carrots, another for shredding soft cheeses and vegetables such as cabbage, and one for vegetables such as cucumbers. Made of plastic, with interchangeable stainless-steel drums, all the parts of this grater are dishwasher safe.

My daughter is currently obsessed with Fireflies - and if you've ever seen them in person, you'll become obsessed too. Currently we have the Flip-Flap on our kitchen window sill, but I'm pretty sure a jar of fireflies would be a welcome addition.
The Firefly lights have an "electronic brain" that makes Firefly Magic™ fireflies flash, flicker, and fade just like Mother Nature's real fireflies and each is sealed in a waterproof case, insuring the microprocessor and electronics will last for many years. In addition, each electronic firefly light will last for over 100,000 hours of operation - that's years of magical firefly enjoyment for your kitchen!
They sell a variety of models but the one we think is the best would be the Firefly Jar set. The Model FMJ-07 FIREFLY MAGIC™ 'Fireflies in a Jar' Kit has seven (7) electronic fireflies and is operated by 2 - standard AA batteries. This light set is designed for creating the illusion of fireflies flashing, flickering, and fading in a jar (the jar is not included). Some people like glass canning jars, while others prefer the new acrylic flip lid jars. But whichever jar you decide to use just attach the FMJ-07 battery pack, with enclosed electronics, to the underside of the jar lid using the supplied Velcro®.
