    We do love the creativity that Charles Viancin exhibits in his new designs every year. (And, yes, unlike Betty Crocker, Charles VIancin is a real person... a very handsome tall Frenchman who is inspired by nature!) But when we saw this year's designs at the show in January, we were literally blown away. With the Sea Collection Charles has gone from recreating the beauty of nature to capturing its intangible qualities as well. Whether you have a house at the beach (or you're visiting someone who does: these make great gifts!) or just want to bring the calm beauty of the sea into your home, this collection is truly, mind-blowingly beautiful!

  4. Chef'n Buttercup (Butter Maker)

    Chef'n Buttercup (Butter Maker)

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $14.99

    Why It's Cool: Make your own compound butters at home--wow your friends!

    I just made butter! Let me say that again: I JUST MADE BUTTER! OK, I did that once before in my life when I was in first grade, but that was hard, and this is so easy I’ve already done it several times. This is one of the coolest things ever. Why is it so cool? First, you know the quality of your ingredients, and it’s only what you choose to add. Second, you have unlimited possibilities to make thoroughly flavored compound butters to complement any dish without having to mash the flavor ingredient into softened store-bought butter. This handheld mini butter churn makes fresh butter in minutes!

    Cooks Innovations Butter Mill

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $15.99

    Why It's Cool: Solves the "cold butter on bread" problem.

    Don’t you just hate trying to spread cold butter onto wonderful fresh bread? There are basically 3 choices for addressing this issue: 1) Leave your butter outside the refrigerator and hope it doesn’t go rancid before you use it, 2) Make your own butter, which we love to do, but it does take some planning, or 3) Use this ingenious device from Cooks Innovations…

  6. SimmerMat

    Cooks Innovations SimmerMat

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $16.95

    Why It's Cool: Light weight and effective for taming heat or making your induction burner even more useful with all your cooking pots

    Today’s modern ranges are great at cooking on high heat, but they’re a little challenged when it comes to to keeping it low and slow: no matter how low you set the heat, it always seems to cook hotter and harder than you want. And there are so many dishes that really benefit from a long slow simmer, like soups and stews and sauces. The only thing that really seems to control the heat is one of those heat diffusers (and we’ve owned several), but most of them are so heavy that you almost strain your wrist lifting them, so you don’t use them very often.

    And do you have an induction burner? We installed one when we remodeled our kitchen and we love it, but it works with only certain cookware (our test is, if a magnet sticks to the bottom of the pot, the pot will work on an induction burner). But we have some cookware that we’d love to use on the induction burner - glass or ceramic, and some older metal pots - but the magnet won’t stick and they don’t work.

    Two kitchen problems, and one very cool solution…

  7. Cuisipro Magnetic Spot Eraser

    Cuisipro Magnetic Spot Eraser

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $9.99

    Why It's Cool: Gently scrubs all those hard to reach places inside your bottles and carafes

    Some problems we encounter in the kitchen are exponentially aggravating, beyond their actuality. In many of these cases, we simply sigh, shrug our shoulders, and move on …. And when someone else decides to confront one of these little issues head-on, and their determination produces a tool that eliminates that problem from our pantheon of small nuisances, we are extremely grateful. This is about one of those problems, and its solution!

    We’re talking here about dried-on wine or other spots … inside your decanter, pitcher, or wine glasses … from red wine or food residue … those nasty little spots that require reaching through a narrow opening and attempting to scrub the inside surface … without damaging your container. Those bendable sponges are only partially effective … but what else to do? Well, now we have it …!

  8. Evo Oil or Vinegar Sprayer

    Evo Oil or Vinegar Sprayer

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $19.99

    Why It's Cool: Sprays a fine fan-shaped mist of oil or vinegar without propellants or pumping

    How do you get just the right amount of olive oil on...everything? Olive oil is one of those tough things to spray because it can clog ordinary sprayers. And cookware manufacturers warn against using aerosols on cookware because the propellants are flammable and can leave an almost permanent film on the surface (and if does that to cookware, what is it doing to your stomach?)

    But the idea of spraying a thin film of oil is very appealing, because it cuts down the amount of fat in your diet while providing great even coverage. So there are two basic types of sprayers, and we like them both. One is the Ad Hoc Tutto, which is a beautiful pump-style sprayer. But sometimes you want more coverage than the pump sprayer will give you without an arm workout. In that case you want the award winning Evo Trigger Sprayer, designed by Michael Graves and winner of the 2014 International Housewares Association Innovation Award.

  9. Formaticum Cheese Bags

    Formaticum Cheese Wraps

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $8.95

    Why It's Cool: Keeps cheese fresh at least a week longer

    As we have often said, we love cheese, but sometimes we love it too much: we buy some beautiful cheese, and then we’re conflicted about “saving it for a special occasion” or not eating too much. Unlike our friends in France and Italy, cheese is not an every-night course. So we eat a little, and we save the rest for the next time … which usually isn’t tomorrow night …. And then we discover that it’s gone bad because we showed too much restraint and we waited too long to enjoy it!  There are solutions to this wastefulness: eat what we buy, don’t buy so much, or make fromage fort and enjoy the cheese slightly differently … but the real solution is how to prolong the life of the cheese, so that you can enjoy it with multiple meals and have it taste as good each time you open it, as it did the day you brought it home. We’ve tried everything: zip-lock bags, vacuum-sealed bags, parchment paper, wax paper, the paper the cheese came in, but nothing worked, until now.

    $19.99

    Why It's Cool: Creates an elegant elevated server without the storage problems

    One of the key elements to creating a beautiful table is the subtle use of height--it adds a dimension (both literally and figuratively) to the look of your table. But as elegant as footed plates may be, you know that storing them is a nightmare. And then if you want to change the look, you have to buy another footed plate...and where do you put that?

    Well, the folks at fusionbrands have come up with an incredibly clever solution…

    Helen Chen's Asian Kitchen Universal Kitchen Scissors

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List

    Regular Price: $21.99

    Special Price: $19.99

    Why It's Cool: Compact, sharp scissors, with comfortable flexible handles, that cut just about everything

    There is a special category of kitchen tools: the “Go-To” Tools that you always reach for first … without thinking about it, you know what we’re talking about: that tool that spends more time in the drain basket than in the drawer …. We’d like to hear from you: tell us about your Go-To Tools and we’ll award you 100 Cooks’ Club Points if we feature your Go-To Tool as a new Cool Tool at ColbrookKitchen.com.

    With your input, we will be highlighting tools in this special category regularly … and this is the first of those to be featured … Thanks! ...and 100 Cooks’ Club Points ... to WR from FL! She recommended these scissors and we’ve come to love them as much as she does.

    Kitchen scissors are useful tools, but many are too large to use without discomfort, too dull to use precisely, or too ill-designed to do kitchen-work. And most are designed only for right-handed use, to the exclusion of 10-20% of the population. Not these!

  12. Joie Citrus Squeeze and Spray

    Joie Citrus Squeeze and Spray

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $6.99

    Why It's Cool: Juices, sprays and stores your citrus to make it easy to brighten your dishes with a dash of citrus.

    We’re big fans of the way that a little bit of citrus juice can brighten the flavors in almost any dish. But sometimes getting a little bit evenly distributed throughout the dish is a challenge. You can squeeze the citrus over the dish, or pour it on after you’ve juiced it, but that just doesn’t get the subtle result you want. So how do you get just a hint of lemon on your kale chips or just a hint of lime on your homemade tortilla chips?

  13. Joseph Joseph Double Dish

    Joseph Joseph Double Dish™

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $19.99

    Why It's Cool: Hides pistachio shells, olive pits, etc. out of sight

    We love eating and serving olives and pistachios, and I love edamame. We also love cherries and cherry tomatoes. The thing that all these foods have in common is that they leave detritus behind: pits, shells, stems, etc. We have been on a many-year hunt for the perfect serving piece to offer the food and deal with the residue. We found several in the south of France that had a separate space for the residue, either next to the good food, or, in one case, over it in a lid that held the pits and had to be removed every time you wanted an olive.

    Why It's Cool: Makes large enough pieces of garlic to crisp up in pan and add a great hit of flavor

    Kennedy swears that the Garlic Rocker is the product that set the initial bar on what would be a certifiable Cool Tool: one of the tools that got us started in this business. We love its different approach to preparing garlic in the best possible way for sauteing ‘crispy bits’ for all  manner of dishes.

  15. KitchenIQ Ginger Tool

    KitchenIQ Ginger Tool

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $19.99

    Why It's Cool: All the tools you need to work with ginger in one compact unit

    Fresh ginger is one of those great flavor enhancers that can make almost any dish really “pop”. There is nothing that can substitute for the taste of fresh ginger. And ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, it calms queasy tummies and boosts immune systems… in short, it’s pretty much a miracle plant! 

    But ginger isn’t the easiest root to deal with: it’s irregularly shaped, all knobby and just a little awkward to handle, and stringy underneath the outer layer. So once you decide that ginger is a key ingredient in your cooking, your next decision is … how you deal with it.

    There are multiple challenges in dealing with fresh ginger. How do you peel it? How do you grate it, without wearing out your arm? How do you slice it thinly and evenly? How do you do all these things, while protecting your hands and fingertips and getting great results easily? We’ve found the answer.…

  16. Tweezer Tongs by Kuchenprofi

    Kuchenprofi Tweezer Tongs

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $11.99

    Why It's Cool: For precision cooking and plating with style

    We’ve all learned the benefits of cooking with tongs: lifting instead of scraping, not piercing the seared surface of your food, and better control, both in and coming out of the pan, or on and off the grill.

    But sometimes standard tongs are too much for the task: metal tongs will scrape your nonstick surface (but you can get silicone-tipped tongs to solve that problem) and the business end of standard tongs sometimes can be too large for detailed tasks, like turning bacon evenly in a pan or on a rack, ensuring even cooking and distribution of solids in a pot of broth-intensive soup, or plating your food to show some style.

    It’s in situations like these that you need Fine Tongs - aka Kitchen Tweezers. And the more we work with these fine tongs, the more uses we find for them, and wonder how we ever got along without them for so long.

    We tested a number of these tweezer tongs, with - surprisingly - widely differing results. All were about the same length and weight, but they differed in the width of the “open” position and in several factors relating to ease of operation, especially the size of the grip point and the flexibility or “springiness” of the tool.

  17. Kyocera Hand-held Ceramic Slicers

    Kyocera Hand-held Ceramic Slicers

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List

    Why It's Cool: Easy, smooth, fast slicers that just work perfectly!

    You know how there are just some tools that you reach for time after time, because they are so useful; as a matter of fact, they rarely see the inside of the drawer, because they’re either in use or in the drain basket. The Kyocera Handheld Ceramic Slicers fall squarely into that category!

    We owned a set of these before we ever started this business, and they’re in the top tier of our “tools I wouldn’t want to be stranded on a desert island without” list.

    There are 2 of them--and we love them both.

    And add a $9 Kevlar Glove for just $5 when you buy it with one of the slicers.

    Why It's Cool: Amazingly sharp blade, comfortable handle, head twists to provide flexible use

    We all have vegetable peelers of various types and styles … from the ones we remember as a child, or from our time on KP in the military, or more recently … but every version or style we’ve ever encountered has had its limitations … dullness, uncomfortable handle, dysfunctional lefty/righty issues, etc. This is not to deny that a peeler is a truly indispensable kitchen tool, but we’ve never found a general purpose peeler that we’ve loved ...

  19. Lékué PopCorn Microwave Popcorn Maker

    Lékué PopCorn Microwave Popcorn Maker

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $19.99

    Why It's Cool: Makes great popcorn that's both convenient and healthy; distributes toppings throughout! Collapses for easy storage.

    Remember when making popcorn was as easy as throwing a bag (including who knew what additives) into your microwave, waiting a few minutes and then taking out a bag of popped popcorn? Then we learned that all those additives weren’t very good for us. So the convenience of microwave popcorn went out the window. We still wanted popcorn, but we wanted to control the quality of the corn, as well as any of the other stuff that was used to cook it.

    Well, now we’re back to having it all: convenience and total control of the ingredients, as well as great tasting popcorn!

    $2.00

    Why It's Cool: Outdoor dining just got a whole lot more stylish and a lot more green!

    Click below to choose an option.

    The weather is finally warming up, and that brings thoughts of eating outdoors: whether it’s a picnic on the beach, a trip to the country, lunch in the park, an outdoor concert, or just a barbecue in your own backyard. And when you eat outdoors, you don’t necessarily want to schlep your china and flatware with you. But you don’t want to use a bunch of flimsy single-use stuff that just gets thrown away.

    Well, there’s eating outdoors, and there’s EATING OUTDOORS; the difference is style (with a nod to the environment as well).

    Picture yourself eating outdoors, with something way better than disposable paper or plastic plates that can collapse under heavy food, knowing that you’re not adding to the landfill, and looking cooler than cool with your Michael Aram designed dishwasher safe plates and flatware. And the best part is that these are really beautifully priced.

    Michael Aram, the fabulous home decor designer who elevates life’s everyday moments so their natural beauty shines through, has worked primarily in metal, glass and china. But this year he’s turned his talents to outdoor dining with a collection called MADHOUSE (Michael Aram Design House), that is both beautiful and practical (a very Cool combination).
