fusionbrands :: foodpod {giveaway}


So I really love kitchen gadgets. Especially ones that are innovative and useful. Useful being an important requirement. One of my new favorite kitchen gadget makers is Fusionbrands®. On top of other requirements, they have some of the FUNNEST kitchen gadgets I've seen in a while!

Before I get to excited and start telling you about all the great products they offer that I want to get, let me get focused and tell you about the one I have, the foodpod. This thing is awesome.

The foodpod is a silicone pod for boiling, blanching, steaming and draining. It is excessively easy to use: just fill it, blanch/steam/boil it, drain and serve! I've used my foodpod to steam asparagus, hard boil eggs and cook ravioli. My favorite was how my foodpod worked perfectly to get all those pesky ravioli gently out of the water at the exact same time so half of them didn't overcook (just make sure to leave enough room in the foodpod for the noodles to expand as they cook and to stay submerged in the water). I also LOVE the fact that I can smash my foodpod up very small for storing, so my precious cabinet space is well used.

Important foodpod factoids to know:
  • made out of FDA food safe non-stick silicone (the pod) and BPA free nylon (the top)
  • can hold up to a dozen eggs or multiple heads of broccoli
  • top rack dishwasher safe & the bottom silicone pod is microwave safe as well
  • that little claw shaped clip on the end of the handle? Not only does it keep you from fishing out the handle in the boiling water, it also helps aid in boil over control. (nifty, eh?)

Here's a little demo video to show how easy the foodpod works:
