10 Cool Geek Gadgets for the Kitchen
Being a geek is not just reserved for the computer room – it pervades every aspect of your life. In order to enrich the lives of the geeks on the site, we have produced this list of 10 cool geek gadgets especially for use in the kitchen! Enjoy!
Every geek must have at least one item of Star Wars memorabilia – and if you don’t – this is a great item to start the collection. You can keep your old pizza crusts and soda cans in here, as well as your old draft copies of quantum physics papers. Unfortunately the trash can doesn’t beep and squeak like R2, but it is better than nothing!
Tetris. Ice. Moulds. What more can I say? These are a design concept so you can’t buy them yet, but once they are out, I will definitely be buying some for my next geek cocktail party! [Source]
With Tic Tac Toast you can now exercise your brain at breakfast too! Grab some peanut butter and your favorite jam and have a tic tac toast competition. The winner eats the toast so you had better brush up on your tic tac toe skills or it will be cold left-over pizza for you. [Buy one]
This is perfect for the geek who likes to eat his pizza standing up in the kitchen. When you are done, all you need to do is sweep the crumbs in the general direction of the Eye Vac and it will suck them all up! You don’t even need to bend down! What could be more perfect for the less active geek than this?
This isn’t the most thrilling of gadgets, but I had to include it because it looks so cool! I have recently been looking for a new egg timer and this is definitely the one I am buying.
Unfortunately this gadget it still only a concept, but what a GREAT looking toaster! I will be first in line to buy one of these when it makes it to the production stage. It works by sliding a small cage under the hood which holds the bread in place. Very very nice. [Source]
They say you are what you eat, and these kitchen scales can tell you, exactly, the nutritional content of just about any food you use to prepare a meal. The scales come with an in-built computer that can analyze the nutritional content of the food you are weighing, from a database of over 1,400 different foodstuffs. The scales not only report on nutritional information, but they can keep a record of total dietary intake, for up to two people, so that you can monitor calorie intake as well as other important dietary information over time. [Buy One]
One of these would look cool in every geeks kitchen! I would recommend that you not wear one on your belt when in public as you may get tazed bro. This is definitely a must have for every geek – especially those with questionable talent in the kitchen! [Buy one]
A friend of mine owns one of these knife sets but in blood red, and I can tell you – it is even cooler in person than in the photo. This is probably the coolest knife set I have ever seen and at only $100 (approximately) it is a real steel! [Buy one]
This has got to be the coolest gadget ever made! This kettle can be turned on and off via an SMS message! Imagine heading home after a long day and arriving home to find the kettle hot and ready for a good cup of coffee! I am almost certain that owning one of these will cause a dramatic increase in my daily intake of coffee. This product has been marketed but does not yet appear to be available for sale. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait much longer.
