Whether you’ve got what it takes to “Beat Bobby Flay” or if your culinary skills max out at boiling water, we found one of the coolest, most fun inducing kitchen gadgets for cooks of all levels. The Flower Power Steam Releaser is a cheerful (and easy) way to keep the lid of a hot pot open so steam can vent in a cool way.

Flower Power comes from the creative geniuses at OTOTO, a brand that makes functional household products with a humoristic/ironic/unexpected twist. Their name in Hebrew means, “any minute now”, with the understanding that something new and exciting can happen at any given moment.

So in the spirit of all things new and exciting, here are three of our other favorite OTOTO designs.
