Talking plate tells you to slow down

Posted in Kitchen Gadgets by Conner Flynn on January 20th, 2010

When you were a kid, your mother would tell you to slow down when you were eating too fast. Thankfully, as an adult you no longer have to put up with that. Let me introduce you to your mother, the plate. A plate that will nag you and tell you to slow down.

It’s called a Mandometer and it weighs the food on your plate, and times you, even verbally reprimanding you when you eat too quickly. A study claims that the Mandometer reduced the Body Mass Index (BMI) of test subjects by 2.1% over 18 months.

Plate, spoon and glass in one hand

Plate, spoon and glass in one handDinner parties are great and all, but you don’t often have a hand free if you’re drinking and devouring some hors d’oeuvres and appetizers. That’s where Mantara comes in. It’s a great solution for keeping one of your hands free.

It has a groove to hold your wine glass, a place to secure the spoon/fork and the dish holds the appropriate proportion of food. Keep it all in one hand so you have one free to point and laugh at those who do not have a hand free. It’s like the Go plate, but for snooty types.

Food Face plates make playing with your food acceptable

Food Face plates make playing with your food acceptableAs a kid, how many times were you told to stop playing with your food? Probably a lot. Well, playing with your food on these plates is totally acceptable and even mandatory. The Food Face is a mid-size, hotel-quality, food-safe plate.

It’s time you had the freedom to play with your food. Your parents were just too uptight. Make a hat full of peas, or a beard full of corn, maybe put some carrots as the eyebrows. No price yet, but I imagine they will be available soon.

Star Trek Plate Covers make light switches fun again

Star Trek Plate Covers make light switchesCheck out these Star Trek TNG plate covers for nerd pretend time in your home. The movie will be out soon so why not dress up your light switches? You can get three of them for $18 each. The power plug plate is probably the coolest as it says Plasma Flux Hazard. And that, my geek friend, allows you to pretend that a warp core breach is imminent. You and Geordi better get the hell out of there.

After play time, you can argue about who looks better in Spock ears and when your nerd rage takes over you’ll no doubt roll around on the floor and fight ala Kirk and Spock in the episode entitled Amok Time. And though it’s just wrong, that fighting will give way to sweet love. Afterwards you try to convince yourselves that it’s the work of an evil entity on board the ship. Just another day in the life of 2 Trekkies.
