Pocket Microscope

When I was a young boy I had a little microscope — the old fashioned kind with two eyepieces and a stage lighted via a mirror underneath.

I spent many happy hours preparing specimens on glass slides, then looking with rapt attention.

Spice Infuser

91806_A2_Infuser_Spices

Wrote Florence Fabricant in the New York Times, "This high-tech replacement for a length of cheesecloth can enclose herbs and whole spices to season a pot of stock, soup, stew, fruit simmering in wine or even holiday glogg. The perforated stainless steel orb, about the size of a tennis ball, has an opening for its snap-on top, a jaunty silicone cap sporting a tiny pom-pom so it can actually hang over the edge of the pan. It can withstand temperatures up to 240 degrees, well above boiling."

A 2010 design by Gabriele Dörfler.

3"H x 2.75"Ø.

$28.
