Tabletop Physics

Elegant, ergonomic, and just plain smart, this little glass carafe and dropper combo is the coolest! Though it was designed in Japan to distribute the right amount of soy sauce over foods, it works with any liquid—from extra-virgin olive oil to Rich Simple Syrup, balsamic vinegar, or even Frank’s RedHot. Just fill the base with the liquid, place your finger over the hole in the dropper to collect it, and dribble away. Ingenious!
