We've recently been way into getting our drinks cooler, but not watered down. This unique ice tray molds two 2"-diameter ice spheres, eye-catching alternatives to traditional ice cubes, and given the melt down less likely due to reduced surface area to water down your drink. Great for putting into an old fashioned, or the like.

It's summer and we're always on the lookout for something to cool us off after a long day out at the beach or wherever our summer rhythm takes us. With the Zoku Quick Pop Maker you can freeze ice pops in as little as seven minutes right on your countertop without electricity. How in 7 minutes with no electricity? You simply store the compact base in your freezer, and because it's so cold you freeze a set of pops and then refreeze the main unit again.
The kit includes six durable, reusable plastic pop sticks that have unique ridged designs that allow pops to adhere securely, with special drip guards for tidy eating. A specially designed Super Tool helps to quickly release the frozen treats from their molds. The unit can make up to 9 pops before refreezing the unit again.

Given the recent water fiasco here in Boston, it's nice to see you can get a device that will destroy viruses, bacteria and protozoa--including Giardia and Cryptosporidium--using ultraviolet (UV) light. The SteriPen takes 48 seconds to purify 16 ounces of fluid, 90 seconds for 32 ounces. That's quite a bit of water, and enough for most general cooking. It's also easy to use--just press a button to start and the SteriPEN shuts off when purification is complete. No pumping, no chemicals, no test strips, no timekeeping, no lubricating, and no replacement filters required.
