  1. AdHoc Champ Champagne Stopper

    AdHoc "Champ" Champagne Stopper

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $45.00

    Why It's Cool: Preserves the bubbles, looks great, takes up very little space in the drawer or fridge

    There are at least 2 major issues with Champagne stoppers: they take up too much space on your refrigerator shelf and in your drawer and they’re awkward to use. Often they simply don’t work, because they cannot withstand the pressure from the bottle. And many are just plain ugly.

    Now you can banish all those issues from your bar!

  2. Pepe

    AdHoc Chili Mill

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List

    Why It's Cool: It cuts (not grinds) dried chilies into tiny pieces to add a hit of flavor to any dish

    The “Pepe” Chili Mill from AdHoc features the unique SchneidWerk® cutting mechanism - a special stainless steel blade that cuts your choice of dried chilis against sharply etched teeth - so that you can enjoy the more intense, “fresh” flavor of real chilis, even when dried, instead of merely crushing long-dried pepper flakes onto your dish! Freshly cut = more flavor!

    And the Voyage offers the same features and benefits, in a sleek compact highly-portable design … so you can have your own chilis conveniently available wherever you are … in your picnic basket, at your favorite restaurant, on your popcorn at the movies, etc. … yes, we know folks who love their chilis anytime, anywhere! And the Voyage from AdHoc makes it possible.

    It’s all that simple: put the dried chilies of your choice into the storage portion of these Cool Tools - either the acrylic chili-shaped top of the Pepe or the simple smaller, more portable container of the Voyage - and turn the top. The unique SchneidWerk® cutting mechanism is the heart of these Cool Tools. You can cut the chilies into the removable base to measure before adding to your dish, or you can remove the base and cut the chilies directly onto your plate or dish. Then replace the base - it acts as a cover - to avoid making a mess on your table or countertop.

  3. AdHoc DuoMill Pure

    AdHoc DuoMill Pure

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $49.99

    Why It's Cool: Both salt and pepper in one tower with 2 adjustable ceramic mills; great functionality and beautiful too!

    Salt and Pepper: essential ingredients in almost every recipe, and therefore in every kitchen and on every tabletop! And there are so many ways to ‘deliver’ these ingredients to your food … we offer electric (Piper’s primary faves!) and manual (Kennedy’s personal preferences!) But the good ones have a few things in common:

    • rapid, consistent and evenly distributed throughput,
    • adjustable grinders for individualized preferences,
    • comfortable ease of use, and
    • no messy “leave-behind” on your countertop or tabletop.

    Over these 5+ years of searching worldwide for truly Cool Tools, we’ve learned a lot, our requirements have become stricter, and the possible field of acceptable choices has narrowed. But this product truly is one of the best! And it’s from one of the first companies we worked with when we started our business!

  8. Bespoke Bitters Kit

    Colbrook Kitchen Bespoke Bitters Kit

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List

    Why It's Cool: Coolest gift of the season with Free Shipping in the US! Craft your own bitters with minimal effort and maximal results!

    For years we have loved bitters: both as an essential and wonderful additive to many cocktails and, when mixed with soda, to make us feel better when we’ve over-indulged with food or drink. Bitters started their life as remedies for all sorts of ailments, because they’re basically infusions in alcohol of all sorts of roots, barks, herbs, spices and other botanicals, many with claimed curative effects.

    Now bitters have re-emerged as the hottest trend in the re-invigorated cocktail culture, and there are literally dozens on the market. But the real mark of the budding mixologist in all of us is to make your own. The process isn’t difficult, but assembling all the herbs, roots and paraphernalia is. So that’s the part that we’ve done for you.

    The Colbrook Kitchen Bespoke Bitters Kit comes with everything you need to make two Recipes of Bitters: Aromatic and Citrus GInger … all you add is the alcohol, the time and the love (and maybe some other handy ingredients, if you want to make something truly and uniquely your own). The easy-to-use Instructions also are included in the Kit.

  9. Cuisipro Fat Separator

    Cuisipro Fat Separator

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $34.99

    Why It's Cool: Spacious area on top to catch solids; cooking liquid released from the bottom so easier to separate the fat from the good stuff

    The Search is over!

    Yes, we found the perfect fat separator. Now we realize that a fat separator may not be the holy grail, but this is a category of tool that we’ve looked at for a long time. Either to remove the fat from a perfect chicken soup, or to start to build a great gravy or sauce. The old fat separators had a spout that started at the bottom of the container so that it could pour the good juices from under the layer of fat, but there was always a layer of fat left in the spout that you had to deal with. Then there were a group of separators that had a plug in the spout, but that was either awkward, or didn’t work, or both. Then someone thought to take the juices from the bottom of the container under the fat, and the first generation was pretty good, but not perfect. But now ...perfect has arrived....

  10. Cuisipro V-Graters

    Cuisipro V-Graters

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $27.99

    Why It's Cool: Great design, both visually and functionally, to deliver an easy effective grating solution

    We’ve discussed the advantages of Cuisipro Graters, and then they went on to expand the line! The utilitarian box grater has its place in the kitchen: grating quantities to be added later. But there are times when you want a specific tool for the grated material … or maybe you want to offer each guest the ability to control the  amount of grated product (I like a lot of cheese on my Caesar Salad, but Piper likes a little less!) … or maybe you will want to add a performing touch of grating at the table, like most waiters in Italian restaurants. Or maybe you just want a grater that is so cool to look at or feels so good to hold or works so well or is so easy to use, that it puts all other graters to shame!

  11. Gefu "Tari" Mushroom / Strawberry / Egg, etc. Slicer

    Gefu "Tari" Mushroom / Strawberry / Egg, etc. Slicer

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $44.99

    Why It's Cool: Offset blades cut more easily to deliver perfect slices

    OK, we’ve already established that if I can substitute one squeeze for 10 knife cuts, without sacrificing the quality of the result, I’ll do it in a heartbeat. I’m all about letting tools make it easier. The GEFU "Tari" does just that, for mushrooms, strawberries, eggs, mozzarella, kiwi,and almost anything else semi-soft that you want to slice. It has 10 Japanese serrated stainless steel blades that are slightly offset so that the pressure of the cutter on the ingredient is distributed, which makes cutting easier and the results cleaner and more precise. Besides that, it is incredibly cool-looking and works beautifully...truly a Cool Tool.

  12. Gefu Bivita Sprouter

    Gefu Bivita Sprouter

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $27.99

    Why It's Cool: Grow your own sprouts, easily, quickly and deliciously!

    OK, we admit it: we used to laugh at people who ate sprouts. Yes, we live in Northern California, and, yes, we know that sprouts are supposed to be really healthy, but we always thought that they tasted sorta like grass, and if you ate them at all it was ONLY for the health benefits. We even asked waiters to take them off our salads when offered. Our “Ah ha” moment came when one of our vendors talked us into trying their new sprouter (which, incidentally, just won the GIA - Global Innovation Award - at the 2017 International Housewares Show!) we sent away for some organic French Garden (Clover, Arugula, Cress, Radish, Fenugreek, Dill) seeds and gave it a go. Wow!

  13. Gefu Ring and Tamper 10-piece Set

    Gefu Ring and Tamper 10-piece Set

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $49.99

    Why It's Cool: 3 Sizes to make a beautiful presentation easily

    Ever wondered how restaurants make the beautiful stacked desserts or salads that make a plate look so spectacular? Or what the essential Cool Tool is to make our new favorite (easy) hors d’oeuvres: a goat cheese and smoked salmon torta? Or how to make any dish stacked an statuesque.. The answer is rings: round molds that are open at both ends so that you can put stuff in at the top (layering as you go), tamp them together so they don’t fall apart, and then remove the ring to reveal a beautiful presentation.

    We tested a bunch of different rings to see what the differences were and what qualities and characteristics were important. We knew that we wanted not only to mold, but sometimes to cook food in the rings, so the material had to be oven safe. It also had to be smooth with no protrusions top or bottom, otherwise it would be difficult to unmold the food. So with those features in mind, our first choice of materials was stainless steel with no seams that might interfere with the perfect round shape. The next thing we wanted was a tamper, a flat pusher that compresses your layers so they don’t fall apart when you remove the ring. To be effective, the tamper should be sized to match the ring so that ingredients don’t squish up along the sides. And last, we wanted some variety, because if we wanted to start using rings, we wanted some choice of sizes: a small ring for a tower of crab in a soup to a large ring for the hors d’oeuvres torta we mentioned above. Our search led us inevitably to one set that met all our “ring” needs…

  14. Tomato Knife

    Kyocera Advanced Ceramic Knives

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $19.95

    Why It's Cool: The sharpest, easiest cutting, least contaminating knife you'll ever own

    Knives have been a part of my life since my earliest memories … I love knives, and I’ve been cast as “The Knife Guy” in our business. My collection includes knives from the US, Germany, France, Japan and Spain. I love to use, and care for, all my knives. But it does take time and effort.

    I recently had an epiphany: instead of getting hung up on incremental and microscopic improvements to the ancient process of transforming iron into steel, why not consider an entirely different material: something very hard, that can be shaped and customized to traditional and modern specifications from the outset and require minor maintenance, if at all. Let’s consider … ceramics! Ceramic knives are a revelation … the source of my epiphany!

    Ceramics are one of the strongest natural materials: second only to diamonds. Ceramics are used on the exterior of space vehicles, to protect against the extreme heat of atmospheric reentry, and in artificial joints for humans, where wear-n-tear must be minimized. And now this material is used to make knives that cut like a dream and hold a wonderful edge for a really loooong time!

    Why It's Cool: Make fast, delicious, healthy meals in the microwave or oven—designed for effective cooking in less time

    It's that time of year when we all think about eating and cooking healthier, with less fats and more natural flavors. And you want to make sure that you maximize the nutrient value of your food by cooking in a way that doesn't remove the nutrients from the food. And let's face it, we're all looking for a way to cook great tasting meals easily and more quickly.

    Why It's Cool: Perfect dices with just a hit

    Man v. Machine

    Kennedy has often stated that all you need in the kitchen is a good knife (which begs the question of why we got into this business in the first place, but that's another story). I, on the other hand, think that the right tool makes you more efficient, saves you time, provides better results, and makes you far more attractive (really, when you're happy and not frustrated, you look better.) So we decided to put our respective theories to the test: Pico de Gallo.

    Nuance Wine Finer

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $28.99

    Why It's Cool: Aerates and filters, and you don't need two hands to use it

    To paraphrase Superman: Look at that thing in your bottle: It’s a pourer, it’s an aerator, it’s a filter... (OK, enough of that!)  This is one of the most versatile and handy wine tools around.  If you have an old wine, this filters out the sediment; if you have a young wine, this aerates it to bring out the aromas and flavors, and if your wine is “just right”, this is a terrific pourer that reduces drips and spills.  What more could you want...?

  18. OXO V-Blade Mandoline Slicer

    OXO V-Blade Mandoline Slicer

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $39.99

    Why It's Cool: Easy to use and effective for all kinds of slicing and julienning

    A mandoline is both awesome and scary. Awesome, because it really can do things a knife can’t (at least not when wielded by a mere amateur), like julienning a couple of pounds of anything, or cutting lots of thin, identical slices. And quickly. But scary also, because that’s a very sharp blade that you’re getting very close to your fingers. And you’re moving fast. Our first mandoline sat in the drawer for years, while we were too intimidated to use its power.  

    But when Zucchetti alla Colbrook, which uses a lot of julienned zucchini, became a regular addition to our entertaining menu, we figured we’d better develop a relationship with a mandoline. 

    Note: While a hand guard is included with the V-Blade, we've never found those as well designed as the main product.  (On Alton Brown’s “Good Eats”, Safety Officer Sam pointed out that the hand guards are probably the last item on the design list.)  Take a look at the Kevlar® glove that we found; using that with the mandoline has given usa whole new sense of confidence. Because we want you to have that same feeling of confidence when you use your Mandoline, if you buy the  Kevlar® glove with your Mandoline, you can get it for just $5 more (a $9 value).

    Paderno 4-Blade Spiralizer

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $49.95

    Why It's Cool: Makes a healthy alternative to pasta easy and fun to prepare

    Let’s face it, vegetables can be a little boring. It’s not their fault--they spent most of their early life playing in the dirt. So how do you make them the life of the party without spending hours doing it? Herbs, spices and flavorings certainly can help (and, of course, there’s always cheese), but the simplest way is to change the shape and texture, which ultimately changes the taste. Whether you’re making noodles out of zucchini (one of our favorites) or strings of carrots, beets or potatoes, a changed shape adds appeal to both the eye and the mouth.

    But almost no one but a sous chef or line cook has the patience to do this by hand. So if you don’t have a sous chef or line cook handy, you can get the next best thing: a Cool Tool that makes this all easy…. And do we have a Cool Tool for you…

    Everybody loves Deviled Eggs - right? And we especially love them in summertime, when we can devour those one-bite wonders almost as quickly as they’re served!

    But wait! Isn’t that kind of quickfire consumption really a learned behavior? ...because those delicious chilled morsels of protein - and mayonnaise, and more - can spoil so quickly in the summer heat?
