Ah, Corona — the only beer that needs fruit to make it taste correctly — specifically, limes. Make that process easier with the Corona Lime Slicer ($16). This simple device readies eight slices at a time from one lime, and will also ready lemons for iced tea and other drinks. [via]
Chances are if you live in a small apartment, it doesn't have a dish washer. So, you'll need a dish rack for your plates and stuff after you've washed them by hand (Ugh). And you might as well get a small one since your tiny apartment more than likely has little counter space. The stainless steel Polder Compact Dish Rack ($20) is the one you want.
If you don't have a local juice bar, but still want all of the super healthy vitamins and nutrients in wheatgrass, you're going to need to get yourself a juicer. The Z-Star Manual Juicer ($90) is our favorite. Its single-auger design "uses an extremely gentle and efficient process to extract more high-quality juice from each blade of wheatgrass" without electric power. Despite its color green trim, it also juices more than just wheatgrass — the Z-Star works with a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. And it's lightweight and portable, so you can do some juicing while on the road for a business trip or vacation.
The Flavia Fusion ($100) is one of those rare kitchen products that is so cool and useful that you'll be herding everyone that comes over into the kitchen to show it to them. The Fusion makes more than 30 hot drinks, including cappucino and several coffees and teas, at the touch of a button. And since it brews direct from pack to cup, the Fusion requires no cleaning between cups and every drink is untainted by the previous brew.
This elegant Range Hood from Zephyr ($TBA) uses directional halogen lights to diffuse light through its front cover for a soft ambient glow in your kitchen. The lights are also used to illuminate the cooking surface so you'll never make the mistake of adding too much seasoning to the slop you cook.
