Kitchen Scrubbing Cloth

September 3, 2009

The Kitchen Scrubbing Cloth by Hiroki Hayashi is a “natural abrasives in these scrubbing cloths make for a resiliant kitchen utility. No detergent is needed for use, though a tiny dab of soap can be applied for the greasiest of dishes. The scrubbing cloth can be used for several months, gets curlier and softer with use and resists odor and bacteria.

The yellow coarse scrub is made from recycled corn cobs while the red gentle scrub is made from peach pits.”

Radiator Mug

“the radiator mug designed by stephen reed is a refreshing departure from the traditional handle-style mug. instead of relying on that handle to allow you to hold a hot beverage, the radiator’s stylish and functional fins do the trick, providing just enough contact to keep your hand warm”

I liked this Porcelain French Fry Pouch. I don’t know how much you’d actually use it but the wrapper is life-size and artfully captures the creases, folds and shape of the real wrapper.

On the same site was this nestling sandwich and soup bowl tray. The ceramic combo lets you end the precarious balancing act of enjoying your favorite quick and comfy meal.

Here are two contraptions that I thought looked pretty useful. I hate when you use a regular oven mitt to get a dish out of the oven and you have to practically stick it into the food to get a good grip on the dish. If these actually hold without slipping they would be much nicer than a cloth oven mitt.
