Never Get Your Arm Stuck in a Pringles Canister Again With This Chip Dispenser

pringles tool

Where the hell has this been all our lives. In my 24 years of eating Pringles I’ve been subjected to getting my arm stuck in the canister, breaking chips in an attempt to grab a stack and looking like a hot mess emptying the can down my gullet to ensure every crumb was consumed. So many wasted years. So many lost chips. So many regrets.

No more will we have to snack like animals thanks to the Chip Dispenser by EntreX. Created in Japan the silicon tool is easy to use, simply snap into shape and stick the Chip Dispenser into your favorite can of Pringles. The scoop-like design ensures every chip is grabbed as you pull back and behold the glorious sight before you. When you’re done nomming on your can of Pecan Pie Pringles the Chip Dispenser conveniently wraps around the canister awaiting its next use.

The product was on sale in Japan but doesn’t look like it’s available anymore. Hopefully someone can recreate this life changing tool to solve all our first world Pringles problems.

Maestro: New Pop Top Champagne Opening System

Similar to the regular champagne top but the main difference lies in the newly instituted large lever that pours over the side. Of the first to utilize this new closure system is Duval-Leroy, putting it on their cuvee Clos des Bouveries Vintage 2004. Apparently, gone is the abrasive popping noise, but the closure does allow a soft popping noise, and is notably faster than the previous opening methods. Luxist reports that “the process is more like opening a can of soda than opening a wine bottle”. Who knows if this closure system will catch on, but if it does, expect rappers to change their lyrics from “popping bottles and drenching titties” to “pulling levers and gracefully pouring liquid on female anatomy”.

Lodge: Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillets


Arguably one of the most important items in any kitchen, the cast iron skillet is a must-have…but for avid users, you know the best flavor comes after a few months, even a few years of continuous use. Lodge has created a Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet (ranging from $10-$40) that ships pre-seasoned. The Lodge Manufacturing team created this skillet utilizing a system they came up with in 2002, using a proprietary vegetable oil spray system coupled with high temperature gas ovens to season the cookware before it leaves their South Pittsburgh foundry.
