SpoonBuddy – Skip the Mess the Next Time You Cook

Consumer Update

You see all the advances in cooking – there are so many methods out there that try and eliminate any stress that may come with it. Yet, despite these methods cooking can still be so disorganized and a nuisance.

Well, here’s a new method, but one that’s proved to be effective, SpoonBuddy.

The SpoonBuddy is a spoon that rests easily and adheres to a pot lid, countertop or any flat surface.

This little guy can mean the difference between a clean kitchen or Hell’s Kitchen – and nothing is more embarrassing than a messy kitchen. And SpoonBuddy doesn’t just keep your pot and surfaces clean, but it also ensures your utensils don’t end up falling into your pot.

Now, the SpoonBuddy isn’t just a spoon rest. As we mentioned before, it attaches to a plate with the suction base and functions as a handle allowing you to easily turn a plate into a lid. And if all that wasn’t enough, if you place it on a jar lid, you can finally open those sticky jars with ease.

The SpoonBuddy is available in black, red and blue. You can purchase it in select Bed, Bath and Beyond stores across the country or simply head to myspoonbuddy.comtoday.


O-YAKI – Your Kebabs of Choice on the Grill or in the Oven

Consumer Update

Alright, so let’s get something straight. Grilling isn’t just for the summertime anymore, it should pretty much be for any time! And because let’s face it – when you’re hankering for some kebabs, should you really let the cold weather stop you?

Well, this is exactly where O-YAKI skewers come in.

O-YAKI skewers were created to provide a more efficient way to cook – whether it’s outside on the grill or in your oven. It can cook several skewers at once and reduces the risk to uneven cooking – as well as a loss of precious marinade juices. In addition to that, you’re able to enjoy grilled skewers whatever the weather.

This set of metal skewers sit on a specifically designed stand and let you cook anything you want right in your oven – from kebabs to shrimp and even a whole chicken!

The set of nine high-grade steel skewers stand up vertically to cook evenly on all sides so there’s no need to turn them as you would with traditional skewers. And because you place the stand directly on the baking sheet, the grease won’t touch the grates in the oven.

And of course, the O-Yaki Skewer System can even fit in a grill, so long as the dome is at least 8 ½ inches high.

So, if you want to give this one-of-a-kind skewer system a try, head on over to oyakiproducts.com.

The Perfect Match: Food And Music

Here is an app that brings together two of my favorite things: food and music.

Music has the ability to enhance almost any situation. Depending on what you are listening to, the tone and atmosphere of your setting can change. This concept is the driving force for Musical Pairing.

Barbara Werner, a Chef and music lover, has taken the mathematical values for foods and music, and combined them into harmonious pairings.  Her book series explains this process, but she’s also created an app called Musical Pairing.  The app has you enter the food you’re eating – the protein, the sauce, the cooking method, the level of spice – then you select the genre of music you’d like to hear.  It gives you beverage recommendations and then plays music as you eat, to enhance your experience.
