Nordic Ware Egg Boiler

We love simple kitchen gadgets and this one is great. Very inexpensive too. Microwave egg boiler for hard- or soft-boiled eggs Interior shelf holds up to 4 eggs upright No piercing required Dishwasher safe BPA (Bisphenol A) and melamine-free Actual height is 6 1/4″ and it is 5 1/4″ across at the widest point The secret to the whole thing is the eggs are protected from the microwaves by an aluminum hood inside the plastic lid. The microwaves boil the water and the steam cooks the eggs. You can find it on Amazon here. Here… 

Rev-A-Shelf Sink Base Drip Tray

Line the base of your cabinet with this Sink Base Drip Tray from Rev-A-Shelf to help prevent damage from water leaks and spillage. The tray is designed with a slope that will push water out of the cabinet onto the floor, so you are aware of a leak and the bottom of the cabinet is protected from water damage. The tray, which is resistant to most household chemicals, comes in a variety of sizes and can be trimmed to fit with a utility knife. The tray is available on Amazon.com and Walmart.

Gemstone Tile LLC Cabinets of the Desert

Gemstone Tile at Dwell on Design

As cabinet people we come across dozens of different types of tile and hundreds of different designs. Some are great, some not so. But at the Dwell on Design show we were totally blown away by Gemstone Tile LLC’s product. Their raw material is turquoise from the Kingman Mine in Arizona, which produces some 500 variations of this natural blue-green material. It becomes a beautiful handcrafted tile for the luxury – and deep pocketed – market. All orders are custom made for the individual client. Please visit their website here (http://www.gemstonetileworks.com).

BEST Range Hoods at the Dwell on Design Show

We ran into BEST Range Hoods at the Dwell on Design Show. We really liked their combination of sleek Italian design and top of the line engineering. BEST describes their product this way:  “The entire line of BEST range hoods is emotion made tangible, and art made functional. Unique in shape and design, these range hoods enable you to express your individuality with a twist on the traditional, or with truly one-of-a-kind styles.” And from what we saw at the show, this sounds about right.

Dyson Airblade at Dwell on Design

We saw this hand dryer in a faucet at the Dwell on Design. You can wash your hands and then air-dry them at the sink in 14 seconds. No reaching for a towel. This is a way cool bathroom accessory but at $1,800 many will will find it way over the top! Click here for the Airblade site.
