Kebo bottle-opener

Kebo bottle-opener

Ever feel like all the hassle over opening yet another bottle of beer almost spoils the pleasure of drinking it?

With a new and more reliable design and cast out of stainless steel polished to a mirrored finish, this device takes you back to a whole era. Kebo (derived from “Bottle Key”) comes in its own keepsake tin in the spirit of the early 1900’s and would make a great gift for anyone who appreciates fine craftsmanship, and of course, fine beer.

Sushi Roller by Osko + Deichmann

Sushi Roller by Osko + Deichmann

Traditional Japanese dishes have won many Europeans and Americans over with their taste and visual appeal, and none more so than sushi. The last decade has seen sushi shift from classy restaurants to the home kitchen with more and more people growing an interest in making their own sushi. Becoming a professional sushi chef requires years of hard work and experience. However, preparing the ingredients for a maki-roll or makizushi is actually quite easy. The traditional maki is a roll of rice stuffed with sliced vegetables, and then covered with a sheet of pressed seaweed called nori. The rolling itself, which involves a traditional bamboo-mat, is especially difficult to the inexperienced. The sushiroller grants anyone the power of making perfectly round, thick maki-rolls.
