Apologies about the missing blog header…we are trying to find it!
A couple of weeks ago I was invited to a NYC preview of the International Home & Housewares Show, which will be held in Chicago next month. I got a close-up looks at some clever new products including these (where available, I’ve included links to buy them online):
Zoku Chocolate Station ($19.95, exclusively at Williams Sonoma). An affordable and kid-friendly appliance that allows you to make your own ice cream pops with a variety of chocolate toppings.
Kizmos “Get Happy” kitchen gadgets (available at Amazon.com–a set of 4 measuring cups costs $10.09). Probably the cutest measuring cups I have ever seen–and they will stand out easily in your kitchen drawer.
Keep Cup (prices start at $8.50 for an extra-small 4oz cup). It claims to be the “world’s first barista standard reusable cup designed for espresso coffee.” I’m not a coffee drinker, so I can’t opine here, but it looks nice anyway. You can choose your own color combos for these lightweight, splashproof and unbreakable cups.
Pack It Lunch Bags (2 bags for $19.95). These insulated bags keep foods cold up to 10 hours without ice packs or gels, plus they fold easily for storage. Fun patterns, too–I like the robots best.
Entemann’s Kids Bakeware (select items available at Amazon.com; $15.06 for kids’ 7-piece bakeware set). Everyone’s favorite grocery store baked goods company has just launched a product line for kids. Love the packaging and that jumbo donut cake looks delish!
