Fusion Brands:

Keep your drinks cute and cool (or hot) with the reusable silicone CupCooley from Fusion Brands. Every time you visit your favorite coffee shop for coffee, tea, chai, hot cocoa or soup, hand over your CupCooley and tell them to use it instead of the paper sleeve—since it’s reusable, it’s more environmentally friendly. It fits all standard paper coffee and tea cup sizes, keeps hands much cooler than a paper sleeve, easily stores in a pocket, purse or car console, is slip-resistant and is dishwasher safe. A perfect stocking stuffer for the coffee addicts on your list.

Fusion Brands:

Like high-protein poached eggs but wish there were an easier, neater way to cook them? We were among the poach-challenged until we discovered PoachPod, a flexible silicone cooking tool for poaching eggs, plus baking and molding. Poach the egg in boiling water or a microwave; when it’s ready, flip the nonstick pod inside out and you have a perfectly dome-shaped egg. Place the pod in the dishwasher for easy cleanup—no more stuck bits of egg whites. The PoachPod can also be used as a mold for rice, flan, jello and any other amorphous food, or for baking single-size batter-based desserts. Eggs Benedict, anyone?

Healthy Harvest:
Freshness Extender

The Healthy Harvest Freshness Extender is a safe, organic and completely recyclable product that extends the shelf life of your produce two to three times. Many fruits and vegetables give off ethylene gas, hastening the ripening—and wilting and decay. Keeping the Healthy Harvest Freshness Extender in the produce bin combats ethylene. It’s amazing: It has paid for itself many times over in “saved” berries, lettuce and other produce.

Muffin Master Splitting Tool

True aficionados of the English muffin know that part of its appeal is its unique texture, the “nooks and crannies” that cradle butter and jam. They also know that the only way to get those crannies is to fork-split the muffin rather than slice it. The Wolferman’s English Muffin Master makes short work of the task. Just insert the tines into your muffin, then pull the handles apart. A wonderful stocking stuffer for your muffin-loving friends—and send them some English muffins, too. Read our review of Wolferman’s English Muffins, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week.
