Schmidt-Brothers-Cutlery

For most of you reading this, Ramen isn’t an acceptable food substitute anymore. Knowing how to grill the perfect patty and slap some cheese on it is a skill, but you need to know your way around a few other dishes as well. We’re not going to claim we’re anywhere near as talented as Alton Brown or Bobby Flay, but we do know one very important thing: you need good knives, and these knives from Schmidt Brothers Cutlery might be just what you’re looking for. The stainless steel blades in the knives are all but standard these days, but the Schmidt Brothers also added a patented curve near the edge of the blade to rest your forefinger while guiding the knife. Available in everything from steak knife sets to full collections with wooden blocks, each set will take you one step closer to Food Network territory.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
