Welcome to our 12 days of Christmas kitchen gadgets blog! Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from now until December 16th, we will be featuring a company with some clever and handy kitchen gadgets.
On the 1st day of Christmas, we bring to thee
VacuVin is an international manufacturer and distributor of innovative food and wine related products for home and professional use, which are characterised by their practical applications in daily circumstances. All products produced and developed by VacuVin are distinguished by their originality, as well as their favourable price-to-quality ratio. The uniqueness of the product range is being emphasised by the fact that most products are patented world-wide to avoid imitation by other companies.
The production and assembly is mainly based in the Netherlands and takes place under ISO-standards, which assures all VacuVin `s customers of high quality products.
VacuVin offers a great line of storage containers/dispensers called PopSome. The PopSome Candy & Nut Dispenser was awarded a Good Industrial Design 2010 award and the PopSome is a finalist in the Housewares Design Awards 2011 competition! The brightly coloured lid and the patented Oxiloc system are specifically designed to ensure that the bowl remains airtight. If you pull up the flexible lid with a “pop”, a useful opening appears which makes it possible to serve contents with ease. The PopSome ensures that the food is easily accessible, whilst also maintaining hygiene when shared by different people. The dispenser is also designed to retain items within the bowl should it be knocked over. These great containers are dishwasher safe and available in 3 different sizes.
1. PopSome Sugar & Rice: Storage and serving is easy with the PopSome Sugar & Rice. This practical dispenser is perfect for sugar, rice and other items such as macaroni, cereals, sweets etc. The PopSome Sugar & Rice dispenser can be stored in the refrigerator if needed.
2. PopSome Candy & Nut: The PopSome Candy & Nut Dispenser is a practical dispenser for items such as nuts and candy. The PopSome Candy & Nut Dispenser is perfect for parties.
3. PopSome Herbs & Spices: The PopSome Herbs & Spices is a practical way to store and dispense all kinds of herbs and spices. Your favourite herbs and spices can be easily stored ready for use, when the lid is “popped” open you can then dispense the contents onto your hand or directly over the food.
Another great product offered by VacuVin is their Tea Stick. With the VacuVin Tea Stick you can make a perfect cup of tea. Scoop up your favourite loose tea leaves into the stick and place this into a cup of hot water. The Tea Stick allows the leaves to flow around and create their genuine tea flavour. Using the convenient slide mechanism you can squeeze the water out of the stick and place the Tea Stick upright. The Tea Stick won’t drip after use on your table or kitchen work top. The left over tea leaves can easily be removed from the stick after use and all parts can be disconnected and cleaned in the dish washer.
The last product we bring to you from VacuVin (but definitely not the last great product they have) is the Vacuum Wine Saver. The Wine Saver is a vacuum pump, which extracts the air from the opened bottle and re-seals it with a re-usable rubber stopper. Place the re-usable stopper in the bottle and extract the air from the bottle using the Wine Saver pump. A “click” sound tells you when you have reached the optimum vacuum level. The vacuum slows down the oxidation process which makes it possible to enjoy your wine again at a later date. The question “how often do I have to pump?” is a thing of the past. The unique and patented vacuum indicator will emit a “click” sound when the correct vacuum is reached. *Note* the Vacuum Wine Saver is not for sparkling wines.
