Custom Lids Transform Mason Jars Into Hipster Sippy Cups

mason-jar-drinking-lids

The same people who brought you hipster-approved mason jar bento boxes also offer a custom lid that turns your mason jar into a  spill-free travel mug. No more spilling your entire sun-warmed organic black  tea over your American Apparel hoodie, guys!

The BPA free and recyclable tops screw in under the cap and are great for hot and cold beverages alike. Plus, this little plastic cap is a lot cheaper than most overpriced travel mugs out there (just $8 a pop). So grab a jar, empty out those pickles, fill it with your favorite drink and go out into the world, unafraid of shirt stains.

Bento Box of Mason Jars Cleverly Separates Wet and Dry Foods

bento-jar

Not-so-secret hipster that I am, I love packing snacks in mason jars. Granola and yogurt, salad and dressing, and mixed nuts and applesauce, are a few of my favorite combos. But what always drove me nuts was ending up with soggy cereal, limp lettuce, and slimy peanuts as a result of everything mixing together.

Thankfully Cuppow has created the BNTO (pronounced ben-toh and named after the simple Japanese compartment boxes) which allows you to separate your wet ingredients from your dry.

Says Cuppow:

Canning jars are designed to store food safely and make an awesome lunchbox: they are easy to clean, cheap, and you can microwave them! The only problem is that sometimes the foods that taste the best together don’t travel well together. So we took inspiration from Japanese bento boxes and created a conveniently shaped insert that separates a canning jar into two compartments so you can mix or dip like a champ.

The reusable plastic cup nestles gently into a filled jar and is sealed with the jar’s cap. It only costs $7.99 and is available on cuppow.

Ingenious ‘Twistable’ Peanut Butter Jar Prevents Sticky Hands [VIDEO]

Peanut-Butter-twist-jar

Who hasn’t gotten sticky peanut butter  stuck to their fingers after scrapping the bottom of the jar for all the pea-nutty deliciousness hiding at the bottom. I know I sure have. After a while, it just becomes an annoyance and you just want to open a fresh jar. But it looks like Jar-with-a-Twist has found a way to revolutionize peanut butter sandwich making with their patented “twistable” peanut butter jar.

Jar-with-a-Twist will, not only allow easy access to “hard-to-reach” peanut butter, but also keep contents fresher by minimizing exposure to air. They even kept production costs of their twist jar as close as possible to that of regular peanut butter jars. If all works out, these guys will also be developing similar containers for “Jelly, Salsa and Mayonnaise.”

Unfortunately, it looks like we’ll have to wait a year to see if this will really take off. Until then, I will begrudgingly continue to make my peanut butter sandwiches with a stupid butter knife and a really long spoon. But I’ll always know there’s something better out there for me and my sandwich. I just have to wait a little while longer.
