Resembling a sleek countertop microwave, the Brava oven uses a combination of available and infrared light for quick and safe cooking. Dubbed the Pure Light Cooking technology, their new tech is powered by 6 crystal bulbs and is able to produce heat up to over 500 degrees in less than a second. This is a 10x increase over standard microwave and convection ovens and microwaves. Expected to ship in November 2018, pre-order is now open on Brava's site for the "world's fastest countertop oven."

MUJI Handy Paper Shredder
We picked one of these manual shredders from MUJI a few weeks ago and everyone in the office is loving it. There is something oddly satisfying from using this to shred mail. Its cathartic - almost therapeutic. One of our interns said her stress levels have gone down and that it was her 'meditation.' Crazy right? Now don't get us wrong - if you have a ton of mail to shred, it will take forever to shred. And thicker card stock won't work. But for that rainy sunday afternoon when you need to shred up a few envelopes or bills, this inexpensive shredder is a delight to pull out. Makes a great gift too.
