Mypressi Twist

April 30, 2009

“The mypressi TWIST is a portable espresso machine. It produces quality espresso while giving espresso lovers convenience and portability. The TWIST’s unique pneumatic engine also ensures you can enjoy incredible coffee even where there is no external power. Just add hot water… ”

The portable espresso maker is powered by using a pressurize cylinder to power the shot with constant pressure all the way through the extraction cycle. It uses fresh espresso or an ESE pod in the holder, add water, and pull the shot. The CO2 cartridge does the rest, offering a 9-bar pressure across the entire shot. Each cartridge lasts for about 8 shots of espresso.
For something more manual try Handpresso. So which is better?

Message Toaster

February 16, 2009

This toaster incorporates a little message board where one can read quick notes. The message also gets “toasted” into the toast itself.
Now you have new way of leaving a message like
“…honey, I left the car headlight on last night, so now the car won’t start anymore, here’s a toast for you so you have the energy to walk to work today…”

Of course, it will taste better if the bread is really toasted too.

Veuve Cliquot : Dry Blizzard

February 14, 2009

The concept “Dry Blizzard” is a study of style and a new technical approach to an ice bucket for champagne Veuve Cliquot.

Using dry ice at the bottom to maintain the cold. A battery operated sytem is used to create a current of cold air around the bottle to allow champagne tasting at an ideal temperature while eliminating the usual water dripping.

Equally innovative is the double walled glass with an aluminum foot that keeps the champagne cool while holding and drinking.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

Küppersbusch Induction Wok

February 12, 2009

The Küppersbusch Induction Wok Cooktop was introduced in 2003…  it uses electromagnetic induction to prepare food faster while saving more energy, employs Sensor-Touch controls (no knobs) and innovative Glass Ceramic surfacing, features Child-Safety Lock and Pan Detection, is so easy to clean and comes with the Wok.
So why don’t I see it in the chinese market? Is it because of the price tag of USD 3500 or it’s being sold in an American market or it still does not answer the chinese way of cooking (flame makes a good taste) or the chinese prefers their own light and rusty wok?
