Kick start, or kick to the curb: cooler, saltier, and unique-er

Kickstarter is an interesting place to browse. Some good projects, some not-useful products, and some proposals that are just plain odd. I sorted through and found some food related items that I thought were interesting or entertaining. Sometimes both.

The Coolest Cooler includes speakers, a blender, a USB charger, and a bunch of gadgets. What more do you need? Maybe some beer. It's already fully funded (and vastly over-funded) with plenty of time to go.

Multi-purpose tongs. Hmmm. Not sure. I'm pretty sure I've seen something similar to this before ...

Brew salt: It's flavored salt. I like the labels. The flavors sound interesting, but as with any spice blend, I always wonder if I could mix it myself. What do you think?

Silicone baking mats. Um, don't these already exist? But is says these are different somehow. You decide.

"A unique culinary accessory." You can say that again.

That's all I've got for now. Have you found any cooking-related items on Kickstarter than are worth a mention? Email me, message me, leave a comment, or send a smoke signal.
