  1. Architec Recipe Rock

    Architec Recipe Rock

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $9.99

    Why It's Cool: Holds a recipe sheet or card off the counter and at a great angle

    With more of us printing recipes off the internet (maybe even some from Colbrook Kitchen!), someone had to come up with an elegant solution for getting the recipe off the counter and into an upright, readable position...and someone did!

  2. blomus

    blomus "Knik" Trivet

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $13.99

    Why It's Cool: Great trivet that folds up to take up very little space

    Trivets are essential tools for handling or serving any hot dish, to protect your countertops or your dining table. If you have ever forgotten to use one, then you’ve never forgotten the damage a hot dish can do, especially to wood. Everybody has some sort of trivet, or maybe a few trivets, or maybe even a collection …but simple is better: “X” marks the spot, with the blomus® Knik™ Trivet.

  3. Camerons Tortilla Warmer

    Camerons Tortilla Warmer

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $10.00

    Why It's Cool: Warms tortillas in the microwave in 45 seconds...keeps them warm and soft for an hour

    With the recent rush away from glutens, we have been looking for appetizing alternatives to wrap our food for easy eating.  We love a nice warm corn tortilla; our favorite filling is Carnitas topped with Pico de Gallo and other traditional accompaniments, but there are so many choices: both traditional and adventurous. This does, however, present a couple of challenges. First, how do you warm the tortillas? And then how do you keep them warm, especially for a crowd? Many approaches to these issues have been less than satisfactory, until now.

  4. Carré Olive Wood Dip Bowl

    Carré Olive Wood Dip Bowl

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $14.99

    Why It's Cool: Olive wood provides a wonderful combination of function, design and beauty

    Don’t you love it when you go to a restaurant, and they serve a beautiful olive oil with herbs to dip your bread in? It’s so simple, yet so good, and it’s healthier than butter. Of course, you can easily do this at home for the pleasure of you and your guests. So what takes this simple preparation of herbs and oil (and we like to add some grinds of smoked chili) to the next level? What makes you feel that you’ve been transported to a cafe in Provence or Tuscany? It’s a bit of old world charm that comes from a hand-crafted olive wood bowl in which to serve it.

    And this beautiful bowl can be used for any number of small condiments, nuts, olives, crackers or anything else that you want to show off!

  5. Carré Olive Wood Spoons

    Carré Olive Wood Spoons

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $15.00

    Why It's Cool: Easy to hold, sturdy and beautiful to use / Pointed Spoon gets in the corners of pots

    The plethora of non-stick surfaces in all our kitchens require a variety of non-metal utensils. Wood is the traditional go-to material, and there are many choices, from bamboo, to oak and cherry. But for beauty and durability, olive is the choice. And as many old olive groves around the Mediterranean go out of production, local artisans are discovering that making olive wood utensils also is the sustainable choice. These are being executed in both traditional and innovative designs, with exceptional functionality … Cool Tools, each and every one!

  6. Charles Viancin Double Boiler Insert

    Charles Viancin Double Boiler Insert

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $9.99

    Why It's Cool: Easy to store, easy to empty, can be used in microwave, oven or on stovetop

    There are certain times when you really need a double boiler--any time when what you’re cooking is too delicate for direct heat. Melting chocolate or butter are only two examples; my super easy zabaglione from my single days (for each person use 1 egg yolk, ½ egg shell full of sugar, and ½ egg shell full of marsala, and whisk for a long time--until doubled in volume--in a double boiler over simmering water; serve over fresh strawberries) is another.

    The function of a double boiler is necessary in any well-equipped kitchen, but the downsides are that it takes up a lot of space, it can be used only on a cooktop and the shape usually makes it difficult to get all of whatever you’re cooking in it, out of it … even with the best spatula skills. Well, not anymore….

  7. Charles Viancin Silicone Measuring Cups

    Charles Viancin Silicone Measuring Cups

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $8.00

    Why It's Cool: Space-saving, flexible and eye-catching measuring cups that are easy to use.

    Measuring ingredients is just a necessary fact of life in the kitchen and there are a lot of different measuring vessels that you can use. What you want in a good measuring vessel is something that is easy to hold, easy to read, easy to pour, easy to clean, and accurate. That’s a minimum set of requirements.

    Added functionality might include: metric measurements (for those wonderful European recipes), space saving design (so it takes up very little storage space, which is always at a premium), and an easy release interior (so that whatever you’re measuring falls easily into your mixing bowl, pot or pan).

    $7.99

    Why It's Cool: Soft, flexible multi-tasker: trivet, pot holder and jar opener

    When is a pot holder not merely a pot holder? And how could a pot holder be a Cool Tool?

    When it’s also a trivet, a bottle opener, and a lovely silicone piece designed by Charles Viancin, whose Inspired By Nature™ designs are some of our favorite Cool Tools.

  9. 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!

  10. Chef'n Corn Stripper

    Chef'n Corn Stripper

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $7.99

    Why It's Cool: Makes fast easy work of strippin gthe kernels off a corn cob

    Ahhh summer! The time for tomatoes, and berries, and CORN! I love corn (kennedy, not so much, but he’s from the south, what can I say!?) I love it on the cob (and have a great Cool Tip for getting the husk and silk off) and off the cob in dishes like Corn Soup and Shredded Zucchini Sauteed with Corn and Chives. But getting the kernels off the cob can be messy, frustrating, and sometimes even a little dangerous. (The knife down the corn cob always makes me a little nervous, and knives just aren’t curved the way a corn cob is.)

    Well, we found a great solution, although I admit, I was skeptical at first…

    $17.99

    Out of stock

    Why It's Cool: Holds sauce like a champ, silicone “bristles” clean up easily in dishwasher

    One of the keys to good grilled food is the layers of flavor you get when use first a dry rub of various herbs and spices (the combinations are endless) and then a mop of some sauce that provides more flavor to the protein, and then can caramelize into a delicious crust.

    We love silicone basting brushes, whether it’s for spreading oil in a pan or smearing sauce on meat, fowl or fish. Silicone withstands heat, doesn’t lose bristles into your sauce or pan, and cleans up like a dream. But sometimes a silicone brush has even more to offer...

  12. Chef'n Hullster Tomato Huller

    Chef'n Hullster Tomato Huller (Corer)

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $9.99

    Why It's Cool: Cleanly and easily removes the hull (core) from the tomato, so it's ready to use!

    It almost tomato season, it’s almost tomato season, it’s almost tomato season!! I keep telling myself that, as I wait for the tomatoes to ripen in our garden. We actually had our first full-sized tomato from our garden (a Cherokee Purple) just last night … finally … and it was worth waiting for.

    So once tomato season finally arrives and there are many beautiful tomatoes in your garden, or in the farmers’ markets, what do you do to make them ready to devour? Well, first wash them (yes, I did grow up to be my mother!). Second, DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT PUTTING THEM IN THE REFRIGERATOR! And the next, and final preparatory step is to hull the tomato.

    Hulling a tomato means to take out the core that formed at the south end of the stem; it’s that tasteless hard cone that’s at the top center of the tomato. So once you’re ready to hull a tomato, what’s the best way to do it? You can take a sharp little paring knife and dig the core out of the tomato. But I’ve never wanted to do a down-facing dog into a tomato with a sharp knife: the possibilities of slipping and doing damage to myself are too great.

    This problem cries out for a tool, and what do you want in a tomato huller that would make it a Cool Tool? First it has to be easy, so that even a child could do it well. But it can’t have scary dangerous sharp edges, because you may want to give it to your child, to help and  feel part of the dinner-making process. However, it does need to be able grasp and cut out the hull - the center core - without taking too much of the good part of the tomato, because, after all, tomato season is short! And you want that tool to extract the hull cleanly from the tomato … and do it with style. Oh yes, and you also want it to be dishwasher safe for safe and easy cleanup because, during tomato season, you will be using it every day!

  13. Chef'n Kale, Greens and Herb Stripper

    Chef'n Kale, Greens and Herb Stripper

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $7.99

    Why It's Cool: Takes the work out of getting rid of the tough stems!

    So I think we can all agree that kale is good for us: it’s nutrient-dense, loaded with antioxidants, a great source of vitamins C and K, a cholesterol and cancer fighter, a good source of minerals we often don’t get enough of, high in eye-protecting nutrients, and it may even help with weight loss.

    With all of those benefits, it’s no wonder it’s been catching on like wildfire. So we’ve been looking around for potential Cool Tools that make eating all the kale you should much simpler. For us, one of the biggest preparation frustrations with kale is just getting the edible part of the kale leaf off the nearly inedibly tough stems. We’ve tried cutting it off with a scissors, running a knife down both sides of the stem, tearing the leaf off the stem. None of these provided satisfactory results, and all of them took too much time and effort. There had to be a better way…

    Chef'n Large Juicester (Citrus Juicer)

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $14.99

    Why It's Cool: Reams citrus to extract maximum juice, measures juice, strains out seeds, non-slip base

    There are so many recipes that require just a little citrus to brighten the dish, and many of them require a specific measurement. While we love the Stainless Steel Citrus Juicer, using this to juice into a measuring cup is often too awkward. So we’ve tested a lot of small citrus juicers with measurements and good reamers, and we finally found one that we think is great.

    Chef'n SleekStor Pinch + Pour Prep Bowls

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $14.99

    Why It's Cool: Nest for storage, pour out contents neatly (Squeeze to create spout)

    When you’re preparing a recipe, getting your ingredients prepped and ready ahead of time lets you cook, or at least look, like a chef rock star. The ingredients that are prepared and ready for your dish are your mise en place (see Cool Tip at left.)

    So what makes a good prep bowl? It needs to be the right size for the ingredient, it helps if it has its own measurements, it should nest so that it doesn’t take up a lot of storage space, it should be able to aim your ingredients toward the bowl or pan, and it should be pretty, because, hey, cooking should be fun, and something that looks good and maybe a little whimsical, just makes it that much better.

    Chef'n StemGem Strawberry Stemmer

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $7.99

    Why It's Cool: Grabs and removes strawberry stem and hull easily...fun and safe for kids to use

    It's summer... and we're surrounded by wonderful strawberries! And if you have strawberries, and if you’re going to serve them over a dessert like Guilt-Free Panna Cotta or strawberry shortcake, or with champagne (or anything else you can imagine), you will want to hull them (remove the stem and core). You can do this with a knife, if you’re brave and have good knife skills, but you risk both your fingers and a lot of the strawberry...and it’s pretty tedious.  And there are lots of gadgets out there to stem strawberries, but none of them have risen to the level of a Cool Tool...until now...

    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…

    Cordova 100% Kevlar® Cut Resistant Glove

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $8.99

    Why It's Cool: Protects your hands when using a mandoline or slicer

    In a couple of the other write-ups, we talk about the fact that mandolines are sharp: really sharp.  That’s a good thing and a bad thing (well, not really bad, just, you know, a little intimidating).  As you slice or julienne on the mandoline, your tender hand gets ever-closer to the sharp blade, and I’ve never found a hand guard that isn’t awkward to use.  

    So, do you deprive yourself of the incredible convenience that a mandoline provides out of fear of the blade?  I don’t think so!  You just take really good, but easy precautions.  For me, that means a hand protector that moves with my hand, rather than with the food--in other words, a cut-resistant glove.

    $9.99

    Why It's Cool: Opens to release the core

    OK, so what could be so different about an apple corer?  They have a round tube with teeth to cut through the apple, and if you’re pretty accurate, you get rid of the core and most of the seeds.  I’ve used one for years, and never thought much about it... except when I had to stick my finger in between those sharp little teeth to dislodge the last piece of core.  And while I never actually injured myself, I always felt a bit apprehensive.

    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 …!
