Monkey Business, a design studio specializing in kitchen and home accessories, will introduce several new kitchenware items at the upcoming winter markets.
The new Blue Bear re-freezable ice packs are designed for keeping food packed in lunch boxes and totes chilled. The bear shaped ice blocks are available in two sizes, a mom bear and a cub. They come pre-filled with non-toxic fluid, ready to be placed in the freezer for chilling. The ice packs are made of BPA-free plastic.
The Hike Mike is a stainless steel infuser that can be filled with herbs and spices and dropped into a pot for steeping. The infuser’s silicone “Mike” grip anchors itself so it doesn’t disappear into the soup. The new gadget is dishwasher safe and heat resistant up to 240 °C/464 °F.
The company’s latest addition to its Big Pasta collection is the Mezzelune shaped oven mitt. Made of sturdy silicone it is suitable for handling hot trays and dishes.
