Ahh, Think Geek. My favorite go to for weird, unique, fun and of course down right geeky products. I never seem to find myself bored when browsing their site especially since they are always adding to their collection of awesome merchandise.
Most of the time when I shop Think Geek, it’s all about my kids and occasionally the hubby but when I came across the Garlic Zoom, I could just hearing screaming, you want this, you need this, how COOL is this! Now I will admit, I’m a garlic nut – It’s this reason I’m sure me and Edward could never be, lol . With the amount of garlic I use weekly, any garlic chopper is a friend of mine. However I have yet to come across one quite as cool as the Garlic Zoom!
Just insert one or two peeled cloves in the trapdoor on top, close it up, and then drive your Zoom around the countertop. The stainless steel blades whizz around inside, slice and dicing the garlic. When the pieces appear to be the right size, just open Zoom back up, carefully remove the blade, and dump your minced garlic into your recipe.
The first time or two I used it, it was hard getting it in motion. After a few uses though it now zooms right along. Cleaning it is also pretty simple, as the blades are removable and the unit itself opens quite wide. I separate the blade, open it up and place it face down in the dishwasher – because I’m lazy like that!
After finding my new love the Garlic Zoom, I could feel my son breathing down my neck – He loves Think Geek! So, I browsed around a bit until I was ordered to come to a stop. What had my son so crazed was the Electric Drum Kit Shirt.
It’s a t-shirt with a drum set built right in! Simply add batteries to the sound pack that tucks neatly inside a pocket on the inside of the shirt and start tapping away at your chest. This drum set ( or shirt) plays 7 Different drum sounds in all!
I’m pretty sure my son thought he could totally get away with wearing this shirt under his school shirt and possibly causing a little “noise” in class. The un-fun Mom that I have become had to put a stop to that but hey, I have no problem with him annoying people in say, the grocery store with it – better them then me ;-)
Check out Think Geek and stay up to date with all their newest additions or simply check out some old classics.
