We got a couple of WrapMasters to review from WrapMaster USA. The WrapMaster is an aluminum foil and plastic wrap dispenser. You load the foil or wrap, pull out the desired amount, and press down on the lid. The lid has blades that are specially designed to cut either foil or wrap. It holds rolls up to 200 sq. ft.
I liked the idea of this contraption becuase my aluminum foil and plastic wrap boxes are always getting mangled in my drawer and I have difficulty cutting off pieces of plastic wrap without getting it tangled up. The foil and wrap is relatively easy to load--although it is a three step process, which could be a problem if you are lazy (like me). Once loaded, it was very easy to pull out the desired amount of foil and wrap, and the blade cut the foil and wrap very cleanly and neatly. It was definitely much easier than taking foil or wrap from the box. My only complaint was that the WrapMasters are a little big. They are 3.75” wide x 3.5” high x 14.5” long, which is too big to fit in the drawer where I normally keep aluminum foil and plastic wrap, so I will have to do some rearranging in order to use them.

Lego shaped ice cubes! Too bad they don't have holes on the bottom so they actually stack together.

This is an alternative to saran wrap for covering bowls. It is a round stainless steel rim surrounding a thin, flexible food-grade silicone membrane. You place the lid over a bowl, press down on the center, and the lid seals itself to the edge after the air hisses out. Comes in a set of three : 8", 9.5", and 11".

Being married to the proprietor of Single Serve Coffee, we always have sugar all over our counter. This is a cool way to avoid the mess of a sugar bowl. It automatically dispenses sugar at the touch of a button. One touch dispenses half a teaspoon. It holds a quarter pound of sugar.

I think deviled eggs are making a comeback. If they aren't, then they should. This container allows you to transport up to 20 deviled eggs to a party. It has an airtight lid to keep the eggs fresh.

I love pot racks; I wish I had space for one in my kitchen. This pot rack has the added feature of two swing arms with lights attached. That way you don't have to worry about the pot rack interfering with the lighting in the room.

I don't understand this at all, but supposedly the concept of this fruit bowl is to use a little electricity to keep your fruit and vegetables chilled on the countertop. It is not clear whether you need to plug it in to an outlet or not.

Taking salad to work is always a challenge. What do you do with the salad dressing. This solves the problem. It has a reservoir in the lid for sald dressing. You push the top of the lid to dispense the dressing and then shake.
