Hot Pot Portable Solar Cooker

One of the things I love about the warm season is spending time outdoors like hiking. With the Hot Pot Portable Solar Cooker you can achieve cooking temperatures for stew or baked goods within just an hour in the full sun. The oven can reach temperatures up to 350-400 degrees and comes with a 5.3 quart enameled steel pot utilizing the solar power of the Sun.

What’s also great is that when you purchase a Hot Pot, you also help subsidize the distribution of this device in developing countries to reduce deforestation and respiratory disease caused by traditional cooking methods.

The Dog Pedometer

April 21st, 2009 No comments

Do you have that dog that is a little on the chubby side? Did your vet tell you that he should walk at least once a day? How do you know how far he should walk to get enough excercise to trim that belly of his? Well, meet the Canine Pedometer. It tells you how many steps your dog has taken in a day. You simply attach it to your pet underneight the collar and it will measure each step like The Police.

It was invented by Takara Tomy to help your pets get proper excercise each day. The Canine Pedometer can monitor movement of all four legs and has a mechanism in place to disregard shaking of the dog. No price yet but expect it to be less than £39.

OneTouch Jar Opener

I consider myself to be a pretty strong guy. Not muscle head strong. But I can usually open most peanut butter jars. However, there are times when that jar just won’t open. Not anymore with the OneTouch Jar Opener.

The grip fits almost any size jar and clamps itself. Then the motor exerts up to 25 pounds of force to unlock the lid. It is powered by two AA batteries (not included). This would make a wonderful Mother’s Day gift. Even making your dad jealous.

Product Features

  • Simple touch and go action; works on all jars of all sizes
  • No more wrestling or twisting; opens from the top of the jar lid
  • Saves time, frustration and aggravation, battery operated (batteries not included)
  • Small, convenient size, padded edges protect your jars
  • Adjustable to any jar size

There aren’t many good things in life that are available for free (legitimately). Except for maybe 773 Free MP3s from Amazon. There are surprisingly a lot of good songs here. If you do like the artist, I would advise you to buy more from them to support the artist community.

Balloon Lamp

I like balloons. But their novelty tends to run out after say a few hours. Meet the Balloon Lamp designed by Kouichi Okamoto. The balloon has an LED light inside of it providing you with useful lighting.

The LED light uses 2 lithium-ion watch batteries (not included)that will shine for 100 hours. They are expensive though costing $63 from the Japan Trend Shop. It doesn’t say how it will work if the balloon blows up or how safe it is.

Solar Insect Zapper

I am excited about the Summer coming soon. What I am not looking forward to are the pesky mosquitoes always hanging around my lights.

Now there is an easy way to zap them without dampening my electric bill. Mosquitoes, meet the Solar Insect Zapper.

It comes with four solar insect lights that stake into the ground on your yard and harvests the sun’s energy to efficiently deliver 100 varieties of flying insects to their maker.

The UV bulb turns on automatically at dusk and attracts mosquitoes, flies, and other insects and instantly eliminates them with a 300-volt electric charge for up to eight hours on full charge.

The Solar Insect Zapper has a grate surrounding it protecting children and pets. It is made from 100% stainless steel and resists the sun and rain.

It can also easily switch to accent lights with a touch of a button

Solar Insect Zapper $99.95
