A great burger can solve all your problems. Okay, maybe that’s a stretch, but when done right, a burger can at least make you forget about the worries of the world for a little while. We’re not the only ones who feel that way, The World Is Your Burger is a new Phaidon title that celebrates the humble hamburger. Included in the 400-page tome are essays, photos, and a deep dive into the history of the burger. Far from a simple cookbook—though there are 12 recipes—The World Is Your Burger is an ode to a dish. Learn about fast food versions from the likes of Mickey D’s and White Castle, along with more gourmet takes. From the original research to the mouth-watering photography, this is the coffee table book for those of us who can’t wait to fire up our grill. Grab yourself a juicy one and read this book. Just try to keep the ketchup splotches to a minimum.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
