Fridge bin liner and vegetable saver.
Frequent tipster
Magnus I.B. is back with a guest review. This time he shares his experience with the fridge vegetable bin liner. He writes (our translation and slightly edited):

"It's a perforated and slightly spongy mat mad of a "non-slip" material. You cut it to size and put it on the bottom of the vegetable bin in your refrigerator. With the mat in place you can take the vegetables out of their plastic wrappers and bags (not cucumber or salad; they need the wrappers to keep their moisture), which keeps them from collecting the moisture that makes vegetables spoil faster. Besides, it looks a lot nicer with the vegetables out of the wrappers. And if something would spoil anyway (like a piece of forgotten cucumber turing into a messy mush) you're still good, since the mat keeps the fresh vegetables away from the goo. I have had mine for close to two years and I would not want to have to do without it."

Thanks, Magnus, for the tip and the review! Now, if you want one of these mats, too, they are available from (among other places) Canadian web-shop Ashton Green for CAD 3:95. A similar mat is on Amazon for USD 2:49.

SensorfreshQ kötttestare

Test meat before you eat.
An increasing number of people are suspicious to the food they are offered in stores, and recurring stories of filth and re-stamping in the food industry does not improve the sentiment. Some merchants seem capable of gambling with their customers' health and lives to make an extra buck. If that is your mind-set it will be pretty easy to put a fresh best-before date on a stale steak. However, there's countermeasures. Smart Stuff reader Dag N. found this tool at Sharper Image, and Dag thinks every home should have one. Or at least every restaurant. The SensorfreshQ meat tester is an electronic nose that sniffs the air above the meat and analyzes the bacterial activity with four sensitive sensors. The machine is promised to work with both (uncooked) meat and poultry and it is USD 89:95 at The Sharper Image or on Amazon

Make real pression coffee in the wild.
This tip comes from Helen M. who, we suppose, like to have coffee al fresco. And in that case we can not but agree, because there is hardly anything that can top the smell and taste of freshly made coffee in the wild. If anything, it might be freshly fried chanterelles on a clear autumn day right at the best chanterelle patch.... But to the issue at hand. Helen thinks this coffee maker is worth a mention, and we agree. The kit contains a cooker with a one liter vessel and a burner, a coffee press, a container of propane and a bag of coffee to make four cups. Right now it is SEK 999:- (approx. USD 142:-) on sale at Naturkompaniet. Expensive? Er, yes, but...

How to make cool drinks.
This is from Jonas S. of Creative Design, and we know he is just looking to peddle his own goods here, since his company is the one selling these things. But, since we know about it, we can take it into consideration. And now we have told you, so you know, too. After all, that we must say that this thing looks pretty cool. We have been experimenting with freezing vodka bottles ourselves, but it has always been a bit of a hassle. You can hardly ever find just the right size for the water vessel; it is always way too big and thus it always takes forever for the thing to freeze. Now the IceJacket vodka freezer promises to make all that a bit easier. Just put the bottle in, lock the container, fill up with water and put it in the freezer. It is USD 35:95 plus shipping.
