As the holidays draw near, it's nice to find neat, original decorations for your home — especially if yours has a more modern decor. The Life of The Snowman Sugar Dispenser by Maxim Vecovsky ($40) is a great holiday kitchen accessory, as the snowman looks like he melts away the more sugar is used from it. Fun yet functional and elegant — more than you can say for most holiday decorations.
After seeing the company behind this product blend up golf balls, a coke can, marbles, and even a rake handle, we knew it deserved a place on Uncrate. The Blendtec Total Blender ($400), with 1500-watts of power and a super strong motor, is the most powerful home blender on the market. Featuring Smart-Touch technology (automatically speeds up and slows down, then shuts off when the cycle is complete), a 64-ounce jar, and Blendtec's commercial blending history, this blender will blend, chop, grind, crush and mince anything you throw at it.
Think you have what it takes to make a great bottle of wine? Here's your chance to put your vino where your mouth is. The Provina WinePod ($3,500) is a custom winemaking device that holds up to 150 pounds and can make four to five cases of wine. You can either purchase grapes from Provina or buy your own locally. The WinePod integrates fermentation, pressing, and aging into one stainless steel tank. [via]
