 Six Metal Disc Coasters With Stand

Disc Coasters - Set Of 7The only thing I hate more than water rings on my table is coasters. For the most part I thing coasters are ugly by necessary. Coasters are a tool that I need to put up with because they perform a task that nothing else will take care of. Half the time I end up using a book or magazine or something else that I just end up ruining instead.

If only they made a set of coasters that looked cool and modern when they were not in use. Then I may be more likely to have them out and available when I need them.

Then I ran into a set of coasters that looked so cool and worked so well I have never ruined a paperback since I bought them. These sleek and modern Stainless Steel Disc Coasters have a hip, industrial look. They are cut from a solid sheet of stainless steel backed with a thick foam rubber pad that protects you table from scratches and condensation. Each disc has a large hole punched out of the center that slides over the wide spindle on the stainless steel stand for easy and attractive storage when not in use.

They look great on your home bar or on your cocktail table looking cool and sculptural rather than…well, like coasters. The stainless steel finish stays bright and is easy to keep clean and shiny. After seeing these for the first time I had a hard time finding these Stainless Steel Disc Coasters for sale but I finally found them available from Chiasso for $69.00. That may seem a little pricey but they look cool enough to keep out and available so I actually use them. Besides, I have probably saved at least that much on ruined books and magazines.

Be aware that while the BACtrack s80 gives a pretty accurate reading, it may lose some of its accuracy if you are testing many people in a short period of time. They are best kept for personal use. Besides, that will keep your budget for the disposable testing mouthpieces down as well.

You can buy the BACtrack S80 Pro Breathalyzer Professional Edition from breathalizer.net for $149.00, that is $100 less than the $249.00 price tag found normally.

Great Gift For Any Wine Lover

Corkcicle Wine Chiller

If you are looking for the perfect gift for a wine lover, The All New CORKCICLE is a great new product that everyone who drinks wine ot entertains will have on their Christmas list this year. The innovative artificial icicle design of the Corkcicle Wine Chiller lets you lose the old ice bucket cluttering up your table or counter top yet still maintain your wine at the perfect drinking temperature.

Corkcicle Wine ChillerFrom the moment you pop the cork, or twist the cap on a bottle of wine the wine begins to lose it’s chill. You and your guests don’t want to drink warm wine because the flavor of the wine can easily be overwhelmed by the taste of the alcohol. Yet, the wine bucket is really not the best way to keep your perfectly chilled wine at the optimum temperature for drinking either, it actually makes the wine to cold, masking the flavors of an otherwise good wine. Besides, an old style wine bucket is bulky, and takes up valuable real estate in your cabinets when not in use.

Imagine if you could keep your wine perfectly chilled from within without taking up any more space than the bottle alone. Simply chill the Corkcicle Wine Chiller in your freezer for two hours and slip it into your opened bottle of wine and re-cork it just as you would a regular bottle stopper and the Corkcicle maintains a perfectly balanced temperature of your wine internally for up to an hour. Keep in mind that the Corkcicle wine chiller displaces some of the liquid so you will need to pour out a glass before putting it in.

Keep your white wine on the table yet still keep it perfectly chilled for drinking or slip it into a heavy, room temperature red wine to give it a subtle chill making it much more drinkable. Best of all, the Corkcicle Wine Chiller can be washed and reused over and over again. I have several chilling in the freezer at any given time and rotate them throughout the evening as I entertain my guests. They never cease to start a conversation and people always leave as “Corckcicle Converts”.

Best of all this innovative and interesting wine chiller only costs $22.95 so they make a great gift or stocking stuffer for the upcoming holiday season.  Buy a couple for yourself and a couple to give away to your boss, friends and relatives.
