As it happens very often, when it’s original, it’s very simple.
You just need eggs (2 for example) and other elements you like to put in your omelette (to each his own recipe) + a zipper storage bag.
Now, the method: put some water to boil in a pot while you crack the eggs in the bag and mix with the other elements. Shake it, get the air out of the bag and zip it up.
Put the bag in the pot, make it boil the time needed (around 13 minutes) and when it’s ready, just enjoy your new shaped omelette. The bigger the pot is, the more omelette bags you can prepare at the same time.




People will need to build these robots and invent the technology. They will also need to maintain them. Jobs won’t be lost. They will just move over.

Biscuit Lover Mug


Hot or Cold Coffee mug

Finally, this simple cool clever mug automatically indicates its current state of mind when you pour a hot beverage into it.


In its dormant state, the mug offers a black “OFF” display, but once your hot coffee or tea hits the inside, it gradually transforms to read “ON”. A heat sensitive pigment changes the colour of the mug from black to white.

3Indian defence scientists are planning to put one of the world’s hottest chilli powders into hand grenades.

They say the devices will be used to control rioters and in counter-insurgency operations.

Researchers say the idea is to replace explosives in small hand grenades with a certain variety of red chilli to immobilise people without killing them.

2The chilli, known as Bhut Jolokia, is said to be 1,000 times hotter than commonly used kitchen chilli.

Scientists at India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) are quoted as saying the potent chilli will be used as a food additive for troops operating in cold conditions.

And the powder will also be spread on the fences around army barracks in the hope the strong smell will keep out animals.

Other forms of pepper spray are commonly used for crowd control in many parts of the world.

Everybody loves kitchen gadgets, but is it possible to love them a little too much? While it’s a great idea to get yourself some inexpensive counter top toys that make cooking easier, when you’ve, say, spent four figures on something that cooks exactly one kind of dish, your kitchen-gadget enthusiasm may have crossed over into obsession. Either that, or you’re executive chef at Tao.

Kitchen porn: 8 of the most outrageous food gadgets money can buy

Whether you’re a gourmet chef or just like to dabble in the kitchen, you’ll be amazed at just how ridiculous something as simple as a corkscrew can get. We found eight of the most over-the-top kitchen tools out there, ranging from $50 to $60,000. Some are pretty awesome if you can afford them; others are simply ridiculous. Follow the jump to check them out.


1. All-Clad Asparagus Pot


WHAT IT IS When it comes to All-Clad pots, $50 isn’t really a bad price — the company makes some of the nicest pans around. It’s the perfect size for asparagus, but can’t cook anything else — it’s too skinny for pasta and may even be too skinny for some of the burners on your range.

WHY WE DON’T HAVE IT Unless you’re extraordinarily wealthy or have some kind of obsession with asparagus, you’ll feel guilty for making room for this pot in your kitchen.

saltpepper.jpg 2. Peugeot Electric Salt & Pepper Mills

PRICE $240 for both

WHAT IT IS Grinding your own salt and pepper can get tedious, and that’s when these electrical light-up gizmos step in to do it for you. At least the $240 buys you the twelve AAA batteries it takes to run these mills, plus two spare light bulbs. In online reviews, some happy customers report that these liven up any dinner party. We think they should throw better dinner parties.

WHY WE DON’T HAVE IT We’d rather save $200 bucks and the landfills with some servacable wrist-powered mills.

expensivetoaster.jpg 3. Dualit Four-Slice Toaster

PRICE $320

WHAT IT IS It’s a nice shiny toaster that will heat up four — count ’em! — slices of bread. The removable crumb tray and an adjustable rear foot give it more flexibility than most models, though the slots aren’t wide enough to hold bagels.

WHY WE DON’T HAVE IT We know that nice appliances can come at a premium, and that not everyone wants the ugly-but-serviceable $10 model. But for this price, we’d expect a toaster that prints the Mona Lisa or at least some kind of iconic symbol.

warming drawer.jpg 4. Viking Warming Drawer

PRICE $1,809

WHAT IT IS A drawer that keeps your food warm. Just choose a temperature, and food that’s done will stay warm while the roast is still cooking in the oven.

WHY WE DON’T HAVE IT We understand the appeal here — there are lots of ways a warming drawer could be useful, and some ovens come with them. But we’re not about to spend two grand for a stand-alone drawer that’s basically doing the job of a $45 hot plate.

espressoexpensive.jpg 5. Jura-Capressa Impressa Z6 Espresso Maker

PRICE $3,299

WHAT IT IS This machine will make you some very nice, very customized cappuccinos and lattes that will beat a local barista’s espresso any day of the week. The “luxury espresso center” can remember the drink preferences of several different people, and lets you choose between five coffee strengths and three temperatures. And it’s fully automated— from when it starts by grinding the beans to when it cleans up after itself after it’s done.

WHY WE DON’T HAVE IT This machine is seriously impressive, but for the same price you could go to Europe several times to sip espresso on a piazza in Italy.

s-g_large.jpg 6. Kalamazoo Sculpture Grill

PRICE $6,495

WHAT IT IS It’s a grill! It’s a sculpture! You can even get it fitted with a #1 Dad custom cooking surface. And according to Kalamazoo, it “cooks as great as it looks.”

WHY WE DON’T HAVE IT The grill has a solid, if wavy appearance. We like it, but it’s no more a sculpture than is the kidney bean-shaped in-ground swimming pool you’d probably buy to go with it.

turbochef.jpg 7. TurboChef Double Wall Speedcook Oven

PRICE $7,895

WHAT IT IS Two ovens for the price of 10! Actually, the selling point of this TurboChef is its top oven, which purports to cook food 15 times faster than a normal oven. The company claims that the speed oven will cook a 12-pound turkey in just 42 minutes by using a patented combination of hot air and microwave technology. The bottom oven is a normal, high-quality convection oven.

WHY WE DON’T HAVE IT If it’s in your price range, the TurboChef does seem like it would be awesome to have around. Consumer Reports says it zapped through a frozen pizza in four minutes instead of 23. But the magazine also complains that chickens and turkeys tended to be cooked unevenly, so it sounds like that magic bullet — speed-cooking technology — may not be all there yet.

expensive-corkscrew.jpg 8. Sveid Corkscrew

PRICE $66,225

WHAT IT IS Why, the world’s most expensive corkscrew, of course. While it’s not solid gold or platinum, the fingertip lever — the bit you have to touch the most — comes standard in 18K gold.

WHY WE DON’T HAVE IT Given the country’s angry, anti-executive bonus sentiment right now, if we owned one of these, we’d probably not letting anyone know about it. And what, exactly, is the point of spending $60K on a corkscrew if you can’t use it openly to dip into your even more expensive wine collection?


go%20platesGo Plates are reusable party plates (not to be confused with party hats) that sit on top of your beer can, bottle or plastic cup, allowing you a free hand for playing grab-ass with all your friends or whatever it is people do at parties. A pack of 42 will set you back $48.50, which isn’t too bad considering their reusable (read: I’ll lay them all out on the floor and let the dog lick them before putting them back in the cabinet). Party at my house!
