Some of our long-time readers may remember the Anna G. Corkscrew we covered a while back. Well, now she has a mate. The Allessandro Corkscrew by Alessi ($45) serves as a functional male counterpart to the aforementioned Anna G., and does his job well — although we’re still not sure about his hat.
Add Barrista to your growing list of job titles with this super easy cappuccino-latte maker from Bialetti ($90). Made in Italy of beautiful cast aluminum, the machine produces rich and frothy drinks with only a stovetop and little effort. (Screw you, frothing wand. You're not needed here.) Just fill the thing up with water, add a filter and your coffee or espresso, and fill the top carafe with milk. Then, just put it on the stove for five minutes and you'll have yourself a tasty reason for waking up in the morning.
We like our knives like we like our women — sharp and sexy. And the EVASolo Fruit Knife ($30) appears to definitely be both. It's got a beautifully sculpted stainless steel blade and even has an integrated orange peeler.
