While I’d love to splurge for a ceramic Santoku knife, for the time being I’m making due with what I’ve got – Anolon 5″ and 7″ santokus with Santoprene handles, which are fantastic knives. Personally, I prefer to use my 5″ santoku over the 7″ one. I’ve been using the 5″ version for over four years […]
A few years ago I had the pleasure of seeing a Kyocera ceramic knife in action, and have since wanted one of my own. It looks like a wide selection of these knives is finally readily available in the USA, but that creates a problem. Which one(s) to buy?! Looking over the knife selection and knowing which […]
I don’t like taking vitamins, but I like the boost they give me since I don’t always eat healthily. I’ve been taking Flintstone Sour Gummies for some time, and am pretty satisfied with them. I tried taking adult vitamin capsules before, but that never really panned out.
Everyone seems to be talking about this pie maker this week, and I can see why! The Breville Pie Maker can be used to bake up to four personal-sized pies. That’s enough for either me, or four normal people. I want one. Think about it – meat pies, fruit pies, veggie pies… A few years ago I used […]

As PutnamEco suggested in a comment to our recent Keep2Go waterproof tubes post, baby soda bottles are great low-cost storage capsules.

If you want to add Keep2Go functionality to baby soda bottles, take a look at these Cap2Go travel caps, which offer […]
Keep2Go tubes are small multi-purpose travel tube containers. There are literally dozens of different applications for them, many of which are shown on the manufacturer’s website. The plastic Keep2Go tubes include a loop-cap which can be used with carabiners and lanyards to attach them to your gear. At $3-5 each Keep2Go tubes are a bit […]
What part of mechanically separated turkey and flavor makes this ground meat “Festive?” The world may never know.
Nalgene just announced their newest water bottle design which features a leak-proof loop-top cap that swings open for a quick drink. The 24 ounce On the Fly bottle has a contoured high-flow drinking spout, and fits into standard cup holders. its push button can be toggled with one hand for easy spout opening, and a locking bail prevents leaks […]
I’m a HUGE fan of IZZE sparkingly fruit juice drinks. Not only do they taste great (at least most of the different flavors), I don’t feel bad drinking an IZZE since they’re mostly composed of fruit juice (70%). I started buying IZZE in 4-packs at the supermarket a while back, but now I just order them by the case […]
