I'm a young wife and would rather have nice colorful tools in the kitchen. As it is, I don't cook like Mario Batalli. So shallow people who can't cook need motivation. I have Rustan's to thank for that. They carry a nice line of kitchen tools and equipment, including storage and serving products by Zak! Design. Total eye candy, if you ask me.
Their mixing bowls are TDF. Why settle for boring stainless steel when you have eye-popping colors to choose from? The nice thing about these bowls is that they don't slip when you hold them, making mixing and stirring a lot easier. A plus? these babies can also be used as serving bowls for salad, chips, popcorn, fries, you name it!
I love their trays. I only got the white ones of these. But I think I'd like to go and grab the other colors (if Rustan's has them). I've used this to serve beverages and TV dinners.
Then they have the storage cups for frozen food, like ice cream.
Do you remember when your moms/helpers would store leftover fruit salad in empty tubs of ice cream? Or empty jars of mayonnaise? DIE. At least these nice, clean and durable plastic jars are reusable and don't look so out of place.
