Kool Off The Pitch:American Zebra (asi/35645)is a female-owned, family-run supplier and if that's not cool enough, consider their new, U.S.-made Kool Top.

Spread the Word The Pitch: You know you really can Google anything. In searching "random sandwich facts," I learned that it got its name in 1762 when the 4th Earl of Sandwich, John Montagu, a British statesman, got hungry during a lengthy poker game and asked his cook for something to eat that wouldn't interfere with the game. There's your trivia of the day. Well, to go along with all the sandwiches out there, Evans Manufacturing (asi/52840) offers the Sandwich Spreader Plus. Use it to spread condiments and whatnot onto a sandwich, spread frosting on a cake, slather your bagel with cream cheese or use the citrus peeler on the opposite end to peel fruits. Pricing starts at: 250; 95 cents-R. Check it out: http://www.evans-mfg.com/. The Bottom Line: A handy tool.
Get a Grip The Pitch: Here's another great kitchen tool from Americanna (asi/35730).It's their best-selling Magic Grip Jar Opener. It's available in 16 colors and would be a great add-on any time you sell something in a jar (salsa, sauce, condiments, etc.). Pricing starts at:300; 70 cents-P.
