Once again the Cubs didn’t make it to the playoffs. It’s the same old story for us Cubbies. But what we lack in victories we wallow in team pride. So raise a toast to your favorite Cubbie with this special toaster.
There’s a certain steam-punk aesthetic to vacuum coffee makers. They’ve got loads of glass, fittings, metal, and a why-not attitude. They look great and make a super cup of joe. Here are some cool examples:

There was a time when items designed for people with arthritis and other physical limitations were beige, ugly, and clumsy looking. Then OXO came around and made items great for people with limited mobility as well as the average person. They made assistive chic and sexy.
It’s good to know you can still get the beige and ugly. Take this coffee cup… please! Seriously, the double handles do make it much easier for those with limited movement in their hands to drink coffee.
Maxi-Aids has other items for those with arthritis and other disabilities.
This may look like your average toaster, but there’s a surprise inside. Insert your favorite bread, push down the plunger, and gather the kids for there will be a gaggle of giggles a few minutes later.
