A digital recipe reader with a touch screen. This touch screen recipe reader has easy-to-see graphic buttons that you can press to search for a recipe or perform other functions. It takes up very little space because of its 5X7 size and it can even be flipped to stand up so that it fills up only a 3X5 space. You can even look up ingredient substitutes or have it alert you when your cookies are ready to come out of the oven. With this recipe reader, you can have thousands of recipes at your fingertips - literally.
2. SensorFreshQ Meat Sniffer
Not sure whether the meat you're thinking of cooking is fresh enough to serve? This meat sniffer is the answer. Hold it up to the meat to find out just how fresh the meat is. Sure, you could sniff the meat to see how it smells, but some of us can just never tell. No more eating stale meat or arguing with your spouse over whether tonight's dinner is past its prime.
3. Digital ID Espresso Maker
Why on earth would this espresso maker cost upward of three thousand dollars? Not only does it produce fresh ground coffee in its stainless steel tank, it also personalizes your coffee according to your preferences. You can program the machine so that it knows exactly how you like your coffee - or your hot chocolate or tea, if that's what you prefer - and you can do the same for up to six people. How does the espresso maker know who you are so that it can personalize your hot drink? Just press your finger to the sensor, and the espresso maker will read your fingerprint and prepare the drink accordingly.
4. Egg Cuber
Round eggs are so...old hat. Why not make them square? The Chickenborg egg cuber does just that, making hard boiled eggs in a square shape. Yes, even the yolks come out square (or rather, rectangular). Stack a bunch of these eggs at your next dinner party, make deviled eggs that actually stay in one place, or let your kids enjoy one as an entertaining gadget. These unique kitchen gadgets are most popular around Easter time, and they make an interesting alternative to dying eggs. Note: You can only make two square eggs at a time in it.
5. Corn Shaver
There's nothing like fresh corn on the cob, unless it's fresh corn off the cob. Although there have been other devices out there that can remove fresh corn from an ear, this is the only gadget out there that catches the corn as well. Best of all, it's shaped like a computer mouse, which makes it a great conversation piece. Use it to cut some corn off the cob for small children as well.
6. Snot-A-Mug Egg Separator
This gag gift doubles as a unique kitchen gadget. Shaped like a face, the Snot-A-Mug lets the egg white drip out (of the nose) while containing the egg yolk. Not a great kitchen gadget to buy for Grandma, but a fun one to buy for a friend with a good sense of humor.
7. Cherry Chomper
Sure, most people enjoy chomping their own cherries and spitting out of the seeds. But this Cherry Chomper does the work for you, removing the pits from as many cherries as you need. Perfect for making cherry pies or for giving a young child some cherries to eat, without all the hassle. The unusual gadget makes a good conversation piece as well, since it looks just like its name implies.
8. Exhaust Burger
Everyone today seems so busy, like they're always driving off to somewhere. So what do you do when you're on the road and wishing you could grill a burger to eat? The Iranian design team who created the exhaust burger wondered just that. They created a metal hamburger maker that attaches to your car's exhaust pipe. You can just stop the car, install the device, and drive off to cook your burger. And don't worry, the caddy holding the hamburger is sealed tight, so that only heat is transferred.
These unique kitchen gadgets make great gifts and interesting conversation pieces for your home.
