The summer might be winding down, but there’s still plenty of warm weather on the horizon to justify picking up a new cold brew coffee maker. Right now is the best time to buy because the Bodum Bean Cold Brew Coffee Maker is on sale for the low, low price of ten bucks. It has a locking lid system and two different lids. It’s dishwasher safe. It’s made with BPA-free plastic. It’s the same quality as other Bodum press coffee makers. It makes up to 1.5-liters (51 ounces) of cold brew concentrate in a single go. And, because it’s press style, it doesn’t require any filters. Did we mention it’s 83% off? Even if you factor in the cost of beans, this thing will pay for itself in a week if you make your cold brew at home instead of paying $4 a day at the local coffee shop.


While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
