DAVID’S TEA The Steeper Teapot – David’s Tea – $19.50 – 29.50
Those who have joined the loose leaf tea movement over the past couple of years probably have a collection of steeping equipment taking up unwanted space in their cupboards. David’s Tea has combined your tea pot and its infuser into one cool invention called The Steeper. Just pour hot or cold water over tea leaves into this teapot and watch as it creates delicious tea. Then just sit the Steeper over your tea cup and the valve at the bottom of the pot will pour perfectly steeped tea while keeping the tea leaves out. It’s the coolest way to pour tea.
OXO V-Blade Mandolin Slicer – Bed, Bath, and Beyond – $49.99
The OXO V-Blade Mandolin Slicer cuts down your chopping and slicing time significantly, and is customizable with a variation of blades for slices, julienne, and crinkle cuts that store safely underneath the slicer. The thickness of the slices can be easily adjusted with a knob on the side of the slicer, and the food holder gives a secure hold on the food when slicing, while keeping your hands safely away from the blade.
CUISINART PerfecTemp Cordless Electric Programmable Kettle – Hudson’s Bay Company – $99.99
Here’s another one for the tea connoisseurs who know that different types of tea require specific temperatures of water for steeping. The Cuisinart PerfecTemp Cordless Electric Programmable Kettle heats up water to exactly the right temperature and will keep it there for up to 30 minutes. Now there won’t be any bitter tasting cups of tea from over-heated tea leaves.
VINTURI Essential Wine Aerator – Bed, Bath, and Beyond – $39.99
While it’s perfectly fine to crack a bottle of wine and start indulging right away, wine experts would probably say that you’re doing yourself a disservice. Aerating the wine before you drink further intensifies the flavours, but waiting for it to aerate in a decanter can take extra time and is inconvenient. Instead, you can pour and aerate your wine straight into a glass with the Vinturi Essential Wine Aerator, which pulls in just the right amount of air to bring the best out of your bottle.
CUISINART Pure Indulgence Frozen Yogurt-Sorbet & Ice Cream Maker – Kitchen Stuff Plus – $89.99

The Cuisinart Pure Indulgence Frozen Yogurt-Sorbet and Ice Cream Maker can make up to 2 quarts of your favourite frozen treats, including ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, and frozen drinks. The appliance comes with a recipe book to start you off and get your culinary imagination flowing. The automatic paddle does all the work while you think of more ingredients to spontaneously add to your concoctions through the machine’s convenient ingredient spout.
