Smart kitchenware for the intelligent cook
With Oscar parties on the agenda, we've got entertaining on the brain.
So we were extra excited when we saw Joseph Joseph's new Double Dish snack bowl ($18), which solves the age-old problem of what to do with pistachio shells--or olive stones or cherry pits--when you're ready to toss them.
Essentially one serving bowl sitting atop a larger collection basin, the Double Dish provides easy disposal for "unsightly food waste." After all, nobody wants to stare at a pile of empty edamame pods.
We love the pair's make-your-life-easier products, like their wrist-saving, ergonomic vegetable-peeler ($7) or their dual-function Rinse&Chop ($15), which transforms from cutting board into colander via an invisible hinge.
The Index Plus set ($80), however, takes the form-function prize: Designed to reduce cross-contamination, it includes four cutting boards and corresponding knives, each color-coded by food type.
Now if only you could foolproof the Oscar party itself.
