hydration devices of the future.

Here’s an interesting thing Robin bought: a water pitcher that infuses the H2O with fresh fruit flavor.

Pitcher 003

It has a vented “spine” that can be filled with fruit and (conceivably) other flavor items as well. In this case, it’s fresh watermelon with a  few mint leaves tossed in. The lid has a removable water-filled core that can be placed in the freezer.

The resulting flavored water is actually quite good—a light note of fruit, nothing too sweet or overwhelming. Of course, I’m already trying to think of uses that involve cocktails.

    We’d be worried about you if you hadn’t…

    That would be a perfect vessel for smaller batches of Wapatula…

    Pretty neat. Would love to order one. Any chance of giving us the name of this unit? Link?

    She BOUGHT it rather than invented it? I would not have thought of it myself (no surprise, there) but I’d like to try it out. Like 2 yellowdogs said, can you share a link?

    Ice in the fruit compartment, vodka cooling down in the jug – I doubt you’ll ever need to refill either before passing out!

    You could do steak-flavored water!

    *looks around*

    Er, I said that out loud, didn’t I?

  7. Hank Blake says:

    Will it infuse vodka?

  8. Ruth says:

    Google finds a bunch of pitchers with fruit infusers, but none with the ice thing in the middle, very cool!

    I found it at Cooks.com. It seems to sell out fast: http://www.cooking.com/products/shprodde.asp?SKU=335907.
    Enjoy!
