7 Nerdy Kitchen Gadgets To Fit Your Nerdy Lifestyle
Looking for a house-warming gift for your nerdy friend who finally moved out of his parents’ basement? These nifty gadgets won’t turn his kitchen into a gourmet palace where he can whip up delicious goodies like a bed and breakfast would, but at least they’ll make his Kraft Dinner breakfast/lunch/dinner seem a little more exciting.
Tetris Ice Cube Tray
Tired after a long Tetris match? Cool down with these puzzle-shaped ice cubes. You probably won’t be able to play an entire game with them unless you’re really really fast, but they make an excellent conservation piece at nerd parties.
This little gem looks just like a real VCR, only it eats toast, not video tapes. It even burns “VHS” onto each slice, in case you’re confused about what’s going on. Just remember it’s not actually a toaster—using a butter knife to unjam your slice will be both embarrassing and painful.
Rubik’s Cube Salt and Pepper Mills
Finally you can twist and turn a Rubik’s Cube and see some real results. Each cube is built around a high quality pepper mill and has the same feel and sound as a real Rubik’s Cube. The only thing that would make this better is if it came with extra stickers to replace the ones you wear out.
Pixel Oven Mitts
These mitts will not only provide a seamless transition from the computer to the kitchen, but they also explain how Mario and Luigi could throw fireballs without burning their hands.
LED Faucet Lights
Tired of tedious, regular ol’ water? Just attach this device to the end of your faucet and be amazed at the stream of healthy, nerdy aqua. Not only does your water light up, but the colour changes from blue to red as it heats up.
Chickenborg Egg Cuber
Round eggs are so cliché, and all that rolling around is a huge waste of time. Luckily, this magical device can solve all of your egg-related problems. Simply drop in a peeled hard boiled egg and screw the top down until the egg becomes square. Magic!
Gin and Titonic
Because it’s been nearly 100 years since the sinking of the Titanic, it’s now acceptable to recreate the scene in your very own home. This kit allows you to make 4 ocean liner ice cubes and 4 iceberg ice cubes—just add gin and a 194 minute movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
