We covered the dual Zevro Indispensable Dispenser earlier this year but weren't thrilled with the black finish. Zevro has released a new Stainless Steel version and it looks pretty swanky. The patented Easy Morning cereal dispenser prevents cereal or other dry foods from going stale and creates a portion control environment so you won't worry your kids are overeating on cereal.
The dispenser is hermetically sealed which preserves the freshness of dry food. Simply place a bowl under the dispenser and twist a knob to get a controlled portion. The design features one clear, see through, high quality plastic container which holds one box of cereal. Very easy to clean and fit on most countertops.

You really don't want your drink skidding around on a typical coaster so why not find a set of coasters with rubber ends to keep them in place? Look no further than these colorful Star Coasters made of stainless steel and soft durometer plastics. The coasters won't skid with these soft feet and they are sure to keep your drink in one place. The coasters come packed 4 to a set and also stack up to store away neatly.
What's better than flexible salt & pepper shakers? How about FLE-SEXI salt & pepper shakers! We love the idea of twitching your wrists to the beat of some fierce salsa music while you put a little salt & pepper on your guests' salads. You get two flexible tubes: one for salt & one for pepper. Just twist the end cap & sprinkle. Supplied with funnel for refilling.

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.

We often find the Italian sense of design to fit our tastes, and these tea pots do the trick. The microwave tea pots come in three different colors and remind us of a bowling ball hooked up to a handle, which is how we often need and want our tea. Hot, fast, and in a large reserve rolling towards our tired bodies.

Sing, "How big is that head on your coaster? How big will that really get?" I have to have these coasters. I'm a stickler for not getting rings of water, coffee, or other beverage leakage on any counter. Yep - neat freak but I think if I had even more coasters, and especially Big Head coasters I would be all set.
From the UK come these great "BIG HEAD" Coasters! Stand them, stack them, line them up, flick them down & put your mug on their big heads. The coasters are supplied in packs of four comprising 2 boys and 2 girls. Choose from either blue or brown hues. The coasters measure 126mm x 90mm and are dishwasher proof.

Lately all I crave is sushi, japanese pickles - put it in a Bento box and I'm a happy man! I just found this very cool looking vacuum sealed bento lunch box -Zojirushi Mr. Bento. The bowls also stack conveniently inside the washable container, which employs vacuum-insulated stainless-steel construction to preserve the temperature of its contents for hours. Mr. Bento is also made of stainless steel and includes a carry strap for lugging your lunch around.

We just saw this new glassware from Bodum this past weekend. There are a bunch of different models around that have an inner and outer piece of glass producing what is in effect - a clear travel or insulated mug like piece of glassware. Mouthful.
These double-walled drinking glasses made of insulated, heat-resistant Borosilicate glass keep cold drinks cold and hot ones hot. The medical-grade glass was made for lab use, and is actually lighter and thinner than traditional glass, and that's what makes them unique.
If you get a chance to pick up one, you can't imagine holding a cup of hot coffee in it but forget the hot coffee is in the inner piece of glass and not all the way to the outer piece. The Pavini shown above is for drinking beer, but it would also work for hot drinks. A set of two 12 oz. Pavina double wall coolers is $19.95 at Bodum.

Leading British designer Tom Dixon’s eco ware is a range of rugged, functional tableware, fine enough for formal occasions, tough enough for outdoor use, and robust enough for every-day. Eco ware is made from bio-degradable bamboo fibre eco-plastic, is safe for hot drinks, and dishwashers, and has a reasonable life of 5 years, after which it can be used as a plant pot or simply composted back to the earth.

We loved the Knork now the Moscardino Spork! They're small enough for easy use by children and great for an all around eating implement. The sporks are made of Mater-Bi, a completely biodegradable starch-based plastic, which stands up to repeated use and prolonged contact with liquids, achieving 90 percent degradation in about 50 days under normal aerobic composting conditions.
