I can see the practical use of this in many places where you might want some extra dish washing or perhaps you're summer cabin where you do things by hand (not as much fun as you want to make it out to be so stop!).
Just attach the included “Water Supply Socket” directly to your faucet, and run it until the dishwasher’s LED lights up and its buzzer sounds. Inside the unit are two storage tanks, which eliminates the need for a valve to control the flow of water to the dishwasher. A full load will use 9 liters (2.37 gallons) of water, which, last we checked, isn’t a lot compared to other washers. Otherwise, you’re looking at a standard dishwasher.

Why wouldn't you want a round kitchen? It's like having a huge kitchen drum set where you can rock out with a little stir fry, salad, and perhaps an apple peeling extravaganza.
The Round Kitchen is designed for the center of a room to create a total ergonomic environment. Living in a circle or walking around the kitchen while one cooks takes an entire new meaning with the round kitchen.
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.

Everyday you wonder - "When will I be able to make fried dough at home? I could just skip the state fair and curl up with an episode of My Name is Earl and get fat on the couch and camp in for winter". Look no further than the EZ Clean Deep Fat Fryer from T-Fal!
Frying food is fun, but clean-up is a hassle - until now. The T-FAL Ultimate EZ Clean Deep Fryer is the only fryer we could find that automatically filters, drains and stores the messy oil without touching it. After cooking, simply place the fryer on top of the oil container. When cooled, the oil automatically drains into the storage container - filtered and ready to use again. Everything except the heating base is dishwasher safe. A charcoal filter reduces cooking odors. Safety features include a cool to the touch exterior, locking cover, and external basket control to prevent splattering. Set the thermostat and a signal light indicates when the oil is ready. Holds 4 1/4 cups of oil, and 1 1/2 pounds of food - plenty in our estimation to get you nice and fat for winter. BULK UP!

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).

We've been trying to find a steamer with some external water filling capacity and also one that has some egg holders. BAM! We just found the Vitamin Plus Steamer from Tefal and it seems to have both. It has no less than 2 external water filling spouts, a 60 minute timer, and an auto on/off. Everything is dishwasher safe, and best of all it has a rice bowl and egg holders. I think you could take a steam in it as well if you wanted!

Everyone has a cold fridge - what about a hot fridge?
Typical cool fridges work with a refrigerant (most often Freon gas.) When the refrigerant is liquid condition, it sucks heat so that the fridge does cooling. The idea of Hot Fridge is based on an experimental use of waste heat from a refrigerator and is inspired by Gudul (Ondol), the traditional under-floor Korean heating system.
By having its structure and condenser redesigned, the fridge is able to store not only cold food but also warm food. The condenser is on top of the fridge allowing you to keep left-over food warm until next meal. Hot Fridge is easy to move so you can pull it to bring warm dishes on the dinner table.
