It officially feels like spring (or more accurately summer) today in New York City. And so my mind had turned to outdoor entertaining. I’m lucky enough to have outdoor space—a rarity in an NYC apartment, so I’m looking forward to a summer of roof deck parties.
This Bottle Opener & Cap Catcher from Trudeau (available at shoptrudeau.com for $13) caught my eye. It does just what it says, after you open a bottle it holds up to 30 caps in the cavity below. I like the idea because it ideally keeps those bottle caps from ending up scattered everywhere, making it easy to empty them into the recycling bin at the end of the party. But do I really need another gadget hanging around my apartment?
Tell me what you think—is this a kitchen gadget that’s worth the space?
