Waste not…

Peanut Butter: it’s the greatest invention ever… at least in the opinion of industrial designer Sherwood Forlee. Its only downside is the jar in which it comes. How many times has one reached the bottom of the jar only to be frustrated at not being able to get those last few bits?

Forlee’s “Easy PB&J Jar” is a jar with two lids that allows one to access all of one’s peanut butter easily– and without having to resort to breaking open the jar. As one nears the end on one side, one simply flips the jar over to get the rest. The straight and smooth internal walls ensure that no peanut butter is left behind.


Two caps are better than one..

Forlee observes that his jar is useful for more than just peanut butter. It’s the perfect receptacle for almond butter, cashew butter, pistachio butter, macadamia butter, hazelnut butter… well, the reader gets the point…

As we reach for the sliced bread, we might call in sick so as to celebrate the birthday of Gabriel Fahrenheit, the German physicist who invented the mercury thermometer- and who was born on this date in 1686.
