Zoku Quick Pop Maker

OK, I don’t say this very often,.. but holy crap. This might be one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen for the kitchen… This little box makes popsicles in 7-10 minutes. I didn’t believe it at first, but when I got a chance to test it out… wow. Not only does it make perfect juice pops, but it made the best pudding pops that I’ve ever had in my life. Here’s where it gets even cooler. You can make creamsicles with it. You just pour in some OJ, let it sit for a few seconds, then pour out the extra and fill in the hole with milk shake or ice cream base and you’ve got a freakin creamsicle…

We also got to play with the accessory pack that lets you make artsy layers and super fancy looking Popsicles. If you like Popsicles… which you do or you have no soul… this is definitely one of our coolest gifts of the season.

Vinturi Wine Aerator

OK, Let’s be honest here… This is a gift for the wine snobs out there. It’s cool, but it’s definitely not something that will be fully appreciated by your Boone’s Farm and Box Wine drinking friends.

So what is this thing? It’s a like this crazy funnel that brings air into your wine as your pour it. Who cares? Well, actually, it made difference when we gave it a try. What happens when you bring the air in is that the flavors and smells in the wine become more pronounced. It can totally change the way it tastes to you… in a good way. This is especially great as a host/ess gift for a holiday dinner party, or just any wine freak you care about.

Baker’s Edge, Edge Brownie Pan

OK, this isn’t a new item on the market this year, but it is just too great to pass up. There’s not a lot to say about it really. It is just a great solution to one of the most horrible problems of our times…center brownie pieces.

Essentially, this pan gives you a full batch of brownies, but every single piece is guaranteed to have at least one crispy edge to it. In fact, there are two pieces that have THREE EDGES. It’s madness. Brownie Madness. This is definitely something you want in your kitchen. I even used it on non-brownie applications like casseroles and stuff like that. It worked like a charm.

Cuisinart Single Serve Brewing System
This was definitely one of the better new coffee makers out on the market right now, not to mention, one of the best looking. We tested it several times and it had some great features that seemed to set it apart from a lot of the other single serve makers that are out there. While many of the others have multiple sizes that you can choose from, this is the only one that I know of that offers five different cup sizes. It also is self cleaning mode that makes it extremely convenient to use. Personally, my favorite part is that you can alter the strength of the brew at the touch of a buton.

Waring Double Belgian Waffle Maker
The only thing better than one waffle is two waffles. The Waring Double Belgian Waffle Maker makes perfect waffles and it looks really cool. This is the kind of thing that you’d find at a fancy hotel buffet waffle stations. You can rotate it easily so that they waffles cook evenly on both sides and you can use the thermostat to control the brownness of your waffles. I love this thing.

Doctor Who Talking Tardis Cookie Jar

I’ll admit, I never liked Doctor Who when I was a kid, but now that I’ve had the chance to really get into the last three doctors, I’m a complete geek for the show and I’m not alone. Doctor Who is one of the hottests names out there in Sci fi and if there’s one thing we geeks like, it’s cookies! All the more reason for me to include Underground Toys’ Talking Tardis Cookie Jar in this year’s guide. This thing is AWESOME! open up the lid and you’ll be treated to that famous Tardis Whirring noise that we all now know is the emrgency break. It sounds perfect and you get it each time you reach for a cookie. This is just about the perfect gift you could get for the whovian in your life.
