Boxed Wine Packaged in a Fashion Handbag

Posted: 09/10/2012 9:59 am

Boxed wine just went couture, with a line by Swedish company Vernissage. Designed to look like a high-end handbag, Vernissage makes your wine-to-go even easier to transport, and you can show some style in the process. That is until you pop open the spout, and pour your chardonnay from a cardboard purse -- that's so gauche.

Vernissage actually uses French wine from Vin de Pays d'Oc, and is available in red (syrah/cab blend), white (chardonnay/viognier), or rosé.

  • Garlic Peeler

    Certain kitchen tasks are so laborious and annoying that they deserve their own tool, but peeling garlic isn't one of them (just <a href="http://www.kitchendaily.com/2011/09/27/how-to-peel-a-head-of-garlic-in-less-than-10-seconds/" target="_hplink">shake it</a>!). Thus, the <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Zak-Designs--Z-Rol-Garlic-Peeler/dp/B00004RDDP/ref=sr_1_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1320170525&sr=1-1" target="_hplink">E-Z-Rol Garlic Peeler</a> doesn't strike us as particularly useful.

  • Egg-and-Muffin Toaster

    Yes, in theory, it would be very nice to have a multi-functioned toaster that could prepare both your toast and eggs. In reality, however, you probably already have a functioning toaster. This <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Back-Basics-TEM4500--Muffin-Toaster/dp/B000QA1224/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1320159990&sr=8-1" target="_hplink">item</a> will thus likely be relegated its true destiny: collecting dust in your garage.

  • Pickle Picker

    Apparently forks aren't good enough for those pesky, briny pickles. That's why there's <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Fox-Run-5431-PICKEL-PICKER/dp/B0000VLPP8" target="_hplink">a tool</a> solely devoted to nabbing those hard-to-spear fellas.

  • Butter Spreader

    So it's not just forks that are a challenge -- knives aren't fulfilling their potential either, at least when it comes to buttering corn. That's why this <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Fox-Run-5416-Butter-Spreader/dp/B000I1Y2PK" target="_hplink">"handy" device</a> exists. Maybe if you eat a lot of corn and are really specific about how it is buttered then you could sort of justify this purchase.

  • Asparagus Peeler

    Asparagus doesn't necessarily need to be peeled at all. But if you're inclined to shave off thicker stalks, a regular peeler will suffice. Or you could spend $3.95 on a special <a href="http://www.amazon.com/RSVP-Asparagus-Peeler/dp/B000BU7U2K" target="_hplink">asparagus peeler</a> if you're into that kind of thing.

  • Quesadilla Maker

    Quesadillas are a great and quick snack -- throw a tortilla on a lightly greased pan, add some cheese, put another tortilla on top and flip after a few minutes. If you happen to be spatula-challenged, you can always purchase a totally unnecessary <a href="http://www.target.com/p/El-Paso-Quesadilla-Maker/-/A-10391696" target="_hplink">quesadilla maker</a> to take up counter space that would otherwise be covered with something really useful, like air.

  • Roll 'N Pour

    Is pouring a gallon of milk or juice challenging for you? Do you wish you could exert a little less effort when quenching your thirst? The <a href="http://www.rollnpour.com/" target="_hplink">Roll 'n Pour</a> has solved all your beverage problems -- all it takes is one completely unwieldy plastic tool that you can roll...and pour.

  • Perfect Meatloaf Pan

    The infomercial says it all. Just <a href="https://www.perfectmeatloaf.com/" target="_hplink">slide and serve</a>. Oh, and sigh. Sigh a lot.

  • Pasta N More

    In case the stove just feels too intimidating, the <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Pasta-More-Microwave-Cooker-Cookbook/dp/B0017VIO36" target="_hplink">Pasta N More</a> 5-piece set allows you to use a microwave instead. Cheers to the devolution of cooking as we know it.

  • Pizza Baker

    Oh, we get it. It's an <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Professional-PS75891-Stainless-Steel-Pizza-Baker/dp/B0002ORKFW" target="_hplink">oven, but skinnier</a>.
