The problem with most food is that it either grows out of dirt, or it poops. Sorry to be so graphic, but it's true. Whether your food is of the dirt-growing variety or excretes solid waste, you're going to want to make sure it's clean before you eat it. Back in olden times, you know - before the XBox - ancient man would rinse their food in the local stream (ignoring what Grog was doing in the stream just a few feet away). They would hold as much broccoli in their hands as they could. Back then, ridiculously huge hands was a good survival trait as you could wash more produce at one go. Now we've got colanders - bowls with holes drilled in them - that can hold a bunch of veggies at once, and let the water drain out. Due to their geometry, colanders take up a lot of space in your kitchen cabinet. Sure, you can find ways to store them so that they take up less space - try wearing it as a hat! I'd rather use a colander that folds. Yeah, you heard right - this colander folds! Dishwasher safe, hacker black and awesome - evolve and wash your veggies.

Garlic Zoom XL
"We love garlic in our food, but we hate having to mince it up. Garlic cloves are small, they stick to the knife, and they stink up your fingers for hours. Garlic presses are easy to use, but they produce a smoosh of garlic. (That's a culinary term, right? A smoosh?) There are times a smoosh is fine, but most times, we want fresh minced garlic of a certain size. The Garlic Zoom makes us happy inside. Just insert one or two peeled cloves in the trapdoor on top, close it up, and then drive your Zoom around the countertop. The stainless steel blades whizz around inside, slice and dicing the garlic. When the pieces appear to be the right size, just open Zoom back up, carefully remove the blade, and dump your minced garlic into your recipe. Say goodbye to stinky garlic hands and hello to stinky garlic breath! Yum. Product Specifications Vroom vroom! Chop your garlic the fun way with this gadget Clear acrylic body with stainless-steel chopping blades Place garlic cloves inside, then drive it back and forth on the counter Fun for kids (the driving part! Don't let kids near the blades inside.) See-through design lets you see when garlic is chopped enough No more smelly garlic hands Blade unit removes for cleaning; top-rack dishwasher-safe Product Dimensions: 1"" x 2.4"" x 3"""
