Now that the weather is so crappy, I enjoy drinking tea every day. How I would love to drink tea out of these tea cups instead of the boring mugs that I currently drink out of. There are two styles--one has saucer for a cookie. Mmmmm . . . cookies . . .

We need new sushi plates because someone who will remain nameless (ok, it was me) broke a couple of our soy sauce bowls. This looks pretty cool.
With this set of four square plates, you won't have to roll your own sushi to present a striking platter. Design your own dinner arrangement with the interchangeable ceramic plates and sauce dishes, which give you the power to serve separately or connect courses. Sets include four large plates and four sauce dishes.

Given the new design of ketchup bottles this might not be such a BIG idea but we do think for certain annoying sauce bottles this could be the bomb. BigFoot replaces ordinary bottle cap to allow bottle to stand upside down. BigFoot provides a wide, stable base to prevent the bottle from tipping over, and its unique cap design fits most popular sizes of plastic bottles.

This electric pepper mill features a push button on the top to commence grinding along with a light on the bottom to assist in putting the pepper where it really needs to go. The glass window allows you to see how many peppercorns you have left before needing a refill. What we really like is the shape of the mill - it's very modern and really quite spectacular in brushed chrome.

What's not to love about a pair of aluminum pebble salt and pepper shakers? Well - we can't find much. We also think for $9.95 you can't beat these lightweight aluminum beauties.

What's not to love about this bottel opener. It's the perfect shape and we wouldn't mind it laying around on our kitchen countertops at all.
Erik Bagger’s bottle opener for the ”Culture” beer glass range has an elegance, power and functionality that melds beautifully with the ”Culture” beer glass and mirrors its simple design. The bottle opener is made of 18/10 gauge satin stainless steel and is suitable for the dishwasher.

We have really been enjoying these double-walled coffee cups from Bodum over the past few weeks. We recently featured these on Single Serve Coffee.com but though our readers here at Kitchen Contraptions would also find these mugs amazing.
We'd also like to recommend for anyone considering something elegant and simply wonderful to buy for a coffee drinker - get these. The glasses both astound and delight as you sip your coffee. The coffee seems to be suspended in mid-air.
Bodum's insulated glassware is made from durable Borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass is a strong heat-resistant glass that weighs less than traditional glassware. Used to make scientific lab glass, borosilicate glass (medical grade glass) is stronger than traditional "soda-lime" glass and can be used for everything from drinkware to cookware. We've put these through several espresso sessions, coffee sessions, and also the dishwasher with no issues.

We like our mugs simple and without handles. We think this mug from CB2 looks amazingly simple. The mug is microwave safe (DO NOT NUKE YOUR COFFEE!!!) and has a nice clean EURO design you can love each morning.
