Weird Kitchen Gadgets Can Be Useful

Just because something looks weird, doesn't mean it isn't useful. There have been many products sold over time that originally looked odd to us. Remember when car phones came out?

We all thought people talking on the phone while in the car was weird. Now there are laws to protect us from people talking on their phone while driving.

So even though some of these gadgets may look funny, they all are really useful.

1. Toastabags

Grilled cheese just got a whole lot easier with this handy kitchen tool. Toastabags provide you with the perfect grilled cheese sandwich in half the time. No more messing around with frying pans, butter and runaway cheese. Simply place your bread and preferred cheese together in your Toastabag and load it into the toaster. The result is an oozy masterpiece encased in a crispy golden brown pocket.

Here are a few additional benefits:

  • Each bag can be used up to 50 times!
  • Dishwasher safe!
  • Gluten free? Toastabags also prevent the threat of cross contamination!
  • Get crazy and even add some delicious ham or turkey to the mix!

2. Rome's Pie Irons

No, these pie irons don't hail all the way from Italy, they're from somewhere even better. You guessed it, Illinois.

Pie irons can make a lot more than just a fancy grilled cheese. Impress your friends by making them empanadas and paninis. They'll think you're a world traveler. Or at least someone who makes great tasting food.

But we don't just carry one type of Rome's Pie Irons. We have:

  • Panini Press Irons
  • Waffle Makers
  • Hot Dog Bun Toasters

3. Kilner Butter Churner

Why buy butter when you can make it better yourself? With the Kilner Butter Churner you can make your very own custom butter in as little as 10 minutes. All you need is whipping cream or buttermilk and you can get to churnin’ with the easy to use hand-crank.

The Kilner Butter Churner is:

  • Good for making smaller batches of butter
  • A great way to make various creations with custom ingredients
  • Fun, easy and better for you!

4. Tapi

The Tapi is a rubber attachment that instantly turns your garden or kitchen faucet into a drinking ‘fountain’. Tapi easily attaches to almost any water tap without affecting normal use of the faucet. The fountain is created by simply squeezing the bottom half of Tapi, which causes water to flow gently back up and out of a second exit in the design.

Tapi can be used in a variety of ways including:

  • Replacing paper cups and cupped hands in the bathroom
  • A quick drink from the kitchen sink without dirtying a single dish
  • A portable and fun drinking fountain at home or on the go

Weird and wacky kitchen gadgets are just a small part of the marvelous, hard-to-find, and just plain fun products we carry and sell in our store. Check out our other marvelous products and stop by sometime!
