  1. blomus Delta Wine Carafe with Aerator

    blomus Delta Wine Carafe with Aerator

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List

    Regular Price: $71.99

    Special Price: $69.99

    Why It's Cool: Adds filtering and aeration to a beautiful 1.5L carafe

    Decanting wine is often necessary: whether the wine is young - when it will benefit from exposure to more air - or old, when filtering out sediment is essential. There are other tools that perform these technical tasks very well, like the Nuance Wine Finer. But there is an artistic dimension to enjoying wine that requires more elegant presentation, and for that we have wine carafes.

    The problem is that we may need to decant more frequently than we actually do, because ...well, sometimes it can be complicated. The “ritual” of opening and pouring and candling into a carafe requires extra equipment, in addition to the carafe, and so much attention to detail that sometimes it just seems inconvenient ...and so we don’t do it. And then we end up drinking young tight wine, or chewing on bits of cork or those globs of sediment hiding in the bottom of the glass as the last of the bottle approaches. Right? ... Wrong!

    In order to simplify this task, what we need is a multi-function single unit, combining the technical tools - the carafe, the filter, and the aerator - in one elegant package of glass and stainless steel. A piece of beautiful design, performing its functions in a highly efficient fashion. A Cool Tool.

  5. Nuance Mortar & Pestle

    Nuance Mortar & Pestle

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List

    Regular Price: $79.99

    Special Price: $65.00

    Why It's Cool: Beautiful, comfortable, effective

    Every kitchen needs a mortar & pestle, to grind those dried herbs and spices, crush garlic and basil and other firm or semi-dry ingredients for pesto and other sauce bases, or grind dry ingredients - even salt and pepper - into fine powders to add to any dish. We use it to grind pink peppercorns to add to the recipe for Guilt-free Panna Cotta for an interesting variation.

    The Kitchn just included a mortar & pestle in it's article " 7 Things You Should Have in the Kitchen by Age 30", saying this:

    Cuisines from around the world - from South America to South Asia - rely on variations of this ancient tool for many recipes.

    Cooking reaches deeper flavor levels when you start using whole spices, and to do that you need a mortar and pestle or an electric spice grinder. As Faith [Durand] wrote..., a mortar and pestle is "perhaps the kitchen tool that blends utility and beauty better than anything else." It's just right for crushing herbs or cracking spices, particularly when you're working with tiny amounts, but it sits pretty on a shelf when you don't need it.

    This beauty from Nuance - designed by Marcus Vagnby - features an extremely well-balanced and nicely weighted pestle - that very sensuous curved piece of stainless steel shown above - combined with a mortar of artfully-shaped Danish beechwood.  This is simply a pleasure to hold and work with! And it will look great on your counter or sideboard!
